    Has anyone tried experimenting with not for sale landing pages? I guess these type of landers will only work with a premium name. It's kind of reverse psychology. Everything is for sale but at the right price.

    Some examples of not for sale landing pages that I have come across:

    It could work as you said, but it may feel somewhat unprofessional manner to some visitors/possible buyers. I wouldn't recommend it unless you truly don't want to sell it. The question is, even if in this scenario why not to build a profitable business site than a "not for sale" landing page?

    I would just delete the few leads you get every decade if didn't want to sell. If thinking some sort of reverse psychology will work to opposite effect you would be mistaken people would move on.

    For the Crypto.com domain, there was a period the owner really didn't want to sell, though.

    But that changed gradually with the incoming offers.

    Why to sell a goldmine, which will give you money for a lifetime?

    I don't have the luxury of having the option of turning away my leads i burn them by ignoring lowballs i don't actively make it impossible.

    The one thing you will notice about all of those "not for sale" domain names is that they are all exceptional, highly desirable assets. The owners likely did not want to sell, but they likely received hundreds or thousands of emails from people asking to buy them.

    I don't think a domain investor will have much luck with that kind of landing page, unless the objective is to dissuade tire kickers from inquiring. On the other hand, someone with a very average, easily replaceable domain name, could lose out on an offer from someone who doesn't want to have to convince the owner to sell.

    IMO, a not for sale landing might work for exceptional domain names that do not need reverse psychology to sell.

    I really think it wasn't a lot of email just the few lowballs pissed them off.
