    While I am having moderate success with emailing end users, mostly city+business or business+city generic domain names. I just got my 2nd complaint today in like 500-600 emails using getreponse.

    I fear that another complaint or 2 and they may ban me, not sure. If this happens I could try mailchimp or send them 1 by 1 on my own email, etc. but what are some other ways to market to them?

    Anyone try direct mail postcards? best I can see with mailing and only doing like 50 or so for each domain name it is around $0.67 each, so like $33 per domain to hit 50 targeted businesses, no spam folder, no pass over by not opening. Should get 50 eyeballs or close to it. Sounds like it might work.

    Cold calling is not my thing and hiring a commission only cold caller is not too easy.

    I tried a newspaper ad with 550k circulation with 6 domain names specific to that city and got ZERO reponse on a 5 day run.

    Any other ideas that might work?

    Also, is there any legal issues with using contact forms on their websites, sometimes for a quote but just putting in your info about the domain names. I have done that a lot when I can't find an email for them.?

    What about doing that thru the Yelp system for contact. Will yelp ban you?

    I would leave my full name and contact info in both cases which is the legal way to do it for emailing.

    Yes, I am contacting only the businesses that the particular domain would be perfect for.
    You mean by phone, email?
    I am doing email now. I don't like cold calling, is that what you are suggesting?

    500- 600 emails!

    that's a lot of spam

    curious as to what names you are soliciting and to whom


    as in most of these "contact an end-user" threads, many never reveal the names they are trying to sell.


    imo....

    2 out of 600 is probably high for getresponse point of view but while these 2 a holes that hit the spam button, there are some that immediately call me or email me with interest.

    The reason I say aholes is this is 1 email about something they could totally use and should want. If not interested just move on. But I guess some of these owners get pounded from every direction with spam and bs sales stuff that most anyone would not want so they are just sick of it.

    I would rather not list them but its cold emails to the related business in those cities.

    I generally come up with 40-50 emails and maybe 10-20 contact forms for the related businesses in those cites that should want this.

    you guess?????

    if you read all the other threads like this and figure every other "end-user hunter" who sends same amount of spam as you.

    and since you guys probably all use same service to get email lists, means more than likely you might be spamming the same people over and over.

    that's pretty much what they all say....

    imo....

    I don't buy lists, I spend the hours to pour thru google search results websites and get the emails myself.

    1st of all what I am doing is not spam. It is not illegal. If i emailed out 100k to 1 million emails a day to random email address lists I got. That is spam. I am sending to targeted businesses only.

    It's a long domain and doesn't appeal much but good luck and let me know if it sales.

    I personalize each email and send them one by one. Never had a complaint. Maybe your pitch is too spammy and too impersonal?

    I've done the nice glossy post cards and wasn't real happy with the results. Too many people using those now. I know I pitch them without even looking.

    There was another thread where we discussed snail mail with hand addressed envelopes and custom or old commemorative postage. Next time I do some serious outbound marketing, I'm going to do some. I've done it for nonprofit and political projects with a lot of success.

    Well with the postcards If the domain name in question was shown prominently it would catch their eye and because it is directly related to their business, I would think that they would at least take a look at it for a few seconds. But what do I know. lol

    Also, if you do each one individual for email then you would never see a complaint, all a complaint means is that they clicked that it is spam. You would only know that if you were using a service to send emails.

    Unless you mean you use a paid service and still send them 1 by 1 thru that?

    Tampa - don't waste any more time promoting that domain. I am a financial professional and though I do not practice public accounting I would never buy AccountingService+Geo - it does not sound good or something I would want to brand my business around - too generic. Perhaps if you had SanJoseCPA.com where there is some search volume (GAKP shows 110 monthly searches w/CPC of $5.52). Even then, accountants, lawyers and real estate professionals can be difficult to sell to. Much of their business comes through referrals so they are often hesitant to buy a domain with the implication they have to develop another website. Type-ins even on SanJoseCPA.com would be low.

    OK let's then say it's 'targeted spam'.
    I report domain spam on the occasion and track down offenders when they are being un-nice. So I must be one of those 'aholes' too.

    What is un-nice? I send 1 email. If they unsub then we are done. You will track down someone for sending you 1 email b2b about something you may really want?

    I send emails to 10-25 end users, most of them are the leads collected from my domains. I send it from [email protected], with a simple signature. Never received any compaints. Most reply with "how much?" and then you know the story.

    So you would rather me call you up and waste your time, rather than taking 2 seconds to look at an email and move on if its not for you?

    I don't have crappy domain names like what are in that thread you posted.
