    I haven't sold a single domain via the outbound domain sale method for about 6 months, even though I've offered about a hundred.

    Is it a congestion caused by the Corona virus or has this way of selling definitely failed?

    Please share with me your opinions and experiences on this topic.

    Thanks...

    Hi

    maybe your names should look in the mirror and tell themselves what they see
    do they feel worthy of their asking prices?
    can they actually do, whatever it is you may have told the recipients of those outspams?

    do the recipients already have a domain name and if so, is yours better than theirs, and why?

    finally, what is the context/context of email, is the spelling correct and what about grammar?

    and then again, maybe emails are going to junk or they just aren't interested.

    in last 6 months,
    i've had a couple of inbound sales, so i know inbound sales are still happening
    and if other outbounders are still getting some sales, then corona isn't the issue.

    maybe change tactics, adjust prices and/or even audit some of those domain names.

    imo...

    No, outbound strategy is already very difficult and requires many ''if's'' to be successful.

    I got too many "outbound emails" everyday.
    I click on "spam" hoping that they don't come back again.

    Best thing to do would be to reach out to a few of the members who conduct large amounts of outbound to see if they've noticed an impact. You can find them by scanning the reported sales thread.

    Alternately, you should also be able to get a good sense of outbound sales volume by looking through that same reported sales thread to see how many have had success (and how often).

    I've had quite a bit of success before ... And then the Corona arrived ... I guess a lot of potential buyers are waiting for this to end.

    What kind of domains? GEO and Exact-match? .com domains? Do you check if you have atleast 20 end-users before you buy the domain?

    Mainly GEO ...
    In order not to think that I am a beginner, I note that I sold over 50 domains before this pandemic. And then it stopped ...
    Hence my question...

    Corona increased domain sales.

    Why would it “eat” outbound? O_o

    That’s why I’m asking for an opinion.
    Sales dropped sharply (at least as far as I'm concerned), and so did the opening of emails I send.
    The quality of domains and the concept of outgoing emails is the same as before.

    It’s interesting!
    I never thought of it that way.

    Just because overall sales up, doesn’t mean outbounding is. I’ll be following this thread. Sorry mate, i didnt mean to come off rude.
    Who knows? Nothing surprises. Following!

    If all of you are doing great, as before, then the problem is a lack of happiness, like in a gamble. I don't know what else ...

    2020 is an anomaly,
    Let’s see 2021. Let’s Look forward.
    I will keep an open mind. You might be right!

    outbounding is always tougher than tough:
    I never thought of Pandemic factor may affect; Always thought use opportunity; “own boss” — That’s also what you’re selling, depending on the outbound prospect.

    Personally, I think that the pandemic has greatly affected the reduction of business activities, and thus the interest in buying this type of domain. That's why I wanted to hear the opinion of other sellers. But, unfortunately, it seems that only my job is going worse ...

    I'm having no problems with outbound sales in the last months. (all geo)
    Maybe you're out of luck.
    Maybe a big sale is coming soon eheh.
    Good luck!

    I'm glad to hear that outbound sales still work ... I guess at one point I was unlucky ...
    It just happens that you invest ten times in red, and it is always black ...

    Yes, I think the chances are in your favor to make a sale soon. (assuming your method worked before covid)
