    Hi, guys. It's not long since i entered this domaining world but luckily for me my first sale came quickly and at good price. I have learned a lot from this forum and people around here so wanted to give it back to people around here somehow. So here's the method i followed from registration to the sale and the process i carried out, A big thank you to @Tank and @Gray Wolf for guiding me around when needed, wouldn't have been possible without these two gents.
    For all newbies like myself reading first things first, Don't register junk of domains, know what you have to lose and limit yourself to at best 5 domains. This will push you to sell one of those and then move on with the business otherwise you'd keep using that card.
    Step 1- I use quite a few tools and a bit of my brain to end up with names i register but my top pick for the name ideas are LeanDomainSearch.com and Namestation.com If you are struggling with ideas give them a try.
    Step 2 (this is must) - Before even registering the domain go over several things, look for stats, traffic and most important end users unless you want to wait for years for right buyer to come knocking. What i mean by this is before you register a name map the idea in your head, know who are your 5 best potential users, find every little detail about them that can help. I would be comfortable moving ahead with the registration of domain with at least 5 good potential end users and few more secondary ones.
    Step 3- Register the domain and let the hard work begin. I suggest creating a spreadsheet with few columns such as company, website, owner/ceo and email.
    Step 4- Finding the right person and email, this could be easiest or hardest part of the process depending on your luck and hard work. I use a tool to do the hard work for me, it does not work that good with small websites but for medium-big range specially ones with board of directors pages it works wonder, the tool is Hunter you can get it for hunter.io for free. Now have heard people about this not accepting gmail well here's another trick get yourself a temporary email to register for Hunter extension you can get from here mytemp.email i have had no issues so far (Use carefully though). Once you get Hunter you can get email in two methods, either find the right person you want to target on linkedin or go to website. On linkedin, hunter would show an option if it doesn't click on hunter icon on extensions at top right and it should come up with email if any and for website do the same.
    Step 5- Track your emails- this is a must, this is probably only thing through which you would know if someone is interested at all or not. There are several tools streak, contactmonkey, boomerang few to mention.
    Lastly, this is what you should include in email or here is what worked for me.
    Your subject outline should be your domain name (ALWAYS) the reason for this is, if they are interested they would open no point in coming with long subjects which are shady, having your domain in there is to the point and end user even before opening knows what it is about.
    Keep it simple- Can not stress much on this, keep it as short as you can something like "I'm owner of this domain, i am contacting all potential interested parties, If you are at all interested, let me know" That's all. After that include your full details, Name, address, phone number and a message at the end which goes like something "I'm emailing you only because i think you would be interested, if you aren't and wish to receive no further communications let me know"
    Feel free to inbox or reply here if you have any specific question about sale or the method, i would be more than happy to answer your queries, cheers!

    I like that last statement. It will make sure them to answer our offer. So, even the answer is no, at least we got a certainty. Nice job buddy!

    And congrats for your first sale...

    Yes, what that does is you get a contact a lead and that is an asset. Say like you get another domain they might be interested a year later you can email them moreover no matter whatever you reply get don't forget to reply. I got few Not interested on other ones but i replied all of them something like thank you for taking time to reply, if in future you change your mind or need any help let me know and thank you! :)

    Thanks and you're welcome, they are no secrets just thought people could benefit from that. Missed one important point though and can not edit the post hence here it is, Break the ice by using the name, instead of Hi, dear or some fancy word, personalize something like Hi, Kelly or whatever is the name of person you're targeting.

    That's a lesson in spamming.

    If you really did get $1k for such an average name, you were very lucky.

    You could say that i am lucky, yes. As far as spamming goes, it is not spamming at all if you include a message at the end which reads something on the lines of unsubscribing and plus it is not spamming at all if you know it could bring good for the business you are contacting. However that said, if you keep emailing random business that would not benefit at all, that would be spamming. Anyway, to each to his own.
