    Which last sentence must be in email to end user?

    Do you interested in this domain?
    Do you want to buy this domain?

    or WHAT?

    Which is better(I mean not only my written above)?

    1) The sentence makes no sense.
    2) Just keep it simple. Only a single sentence is required to gauge whether they are interested or not. No need to give them a headache.

    E.g. I am selling xyz.com would you be interested in purchasing it?

    The end.

    Are you interested in this domain?

    instead of

    Do you interested in this domain?


    However...

    Don't use either one. You never want to end the eMail with a question, you want to end an eMail with a call to action. How you configure this is up to you.

    Best regards ?

    And indeed, you need to write in proper English, proofread your text. Only then, maybe, the recipient will not instantly classify your mail in the same category as SEO spam from India.

    I just ask them if they want the name. Seems to always get a response. Keep it simple.

    I just sold a domain yesterday to an end user using this simple method.

    Just getting a response is not enough, you have to walk them through a repeatable sequence that gets them to say "YES".

    You can keep a message simple, 3-4 short lines, while putting a lot of thought and design to how your craft this simple message.

    In professional sales, which is what outbound is, you never end the eMail with a question. You end with a call to action.

    I’m not disagreeing but everyone should find their own style of negotiating. Mine is simple and works for me. However, it may not work for others.

    I’ve sold lots of domains using this style and in a way it’s treating the person reading the email with respect. Time is precious so just get to the point. You want to take their money, right? So cut the BS and just ask them if they want what you have. Just my opinion and may not work for everyone :)

    Good luck.

    I think you are better off just saying something like - Please let me know if you are interested.

    And that's why most people in the world are garbage at sales.

    Do you REALLY know what a call to action is? :xf.rolleyes::xf.rolleyes::xf.rolleyes::xf.rolleyes::xf.rolleyes::xf.rolleyes: Most people don't.

    HERE
    Nail your Cold Email Call To Action: 10 Techniques to Boost your Response Rates

    Domaining is full of lazy shortcut takers. You do what makes you happy, but this industry is also full of people that are killing it because they take the time to learn every nuance of marketing and sales.

    Directly from a sales professional:

    Simply asking someone if they want the name is a weak sales strategy that forces you to spend more money at the point of acquisition in order to acquire domains that sell themselves.

    Millions of domains can't sell themselves, so YOU have to. Or be lazy, whatever makes you happy.

    True...just as I am garbage at brain surgery or at laying brick (although attempting both, I am clearly not very good at either!) :xf.smile:

    I started my marketing/advertising career as a copywriter for radio and tv ads. The one thing that most of all the copy/commercial writing formulas contain is the ending...urge to action.

    The same is applied to my close in an email. "Please use the link above to purchase the domain".

    I just wish my domianer career was doing a little better!

    I miss the copy writing part of my life and recently reached out to a couple free lance agencies to see if my skills had any life left. The pay wasn't very good in the old days as the agency always made the big bucks...flipping houses pays better!

    Another important step in the email contact is creating interest. I do this with a quick reason why I think the domain applies to their business/situation and back it up with quick stats if applicable...broad searches, exact searches. cpc, etc. and definitely keep it as brief as possible as someone above said.

    Maybe it's because I'm a "lazy shortcut taker", but I believe it's perfectly possible to to keep the email short, include a call to action, and finish with an open ended question.

    I sent 2 emails today. One had 5 views and no response, and another had 34 views and a phone call with a decision maker...

    Hopefully they seal the deal tomorrow.

    All I can say is that what I do works for me on a regular basis, and I hope that what everyone else is doing works for them.

    Cheers.

    Do you interested in this domain? This sentence is grammatically wrong.
    Are you interested in this domain name? will be fine.
