    I sold a domain through GoDaddy Auction. I have more domains similar to it. Is it OK to use the WhoIs information to contact the buyer and attempt to sell the others? (In this case, they have a website for selling their domains. So, I can easily customize a list of my domains to see if they are interested. I wanted to say something like, "you purchased my XXXX domain through GoDaddy. I have similar domains that you may be interested in..."
    What do you think?
    I didn't know if that was against GoDaddy rules or anything.

    Thank you

    That's what I thought. I have many similar domains to theirs, so I hope they don't just trash my email.

    It's cool, but i'd think again with adding the phrase "I sold you XXXX through godaddy.."
    From one side you can assume he'd feel safe dealing with you again, but from the other side he might feel like your trying to "shove" your domains to him which will lower your chances to make a sell with him.


    It's your call, i'd add the phrase perhaps AFTER he shows interest. Or if you close a price you can "calm him down" with the spoken phrase.

    I've bought additional domains like that. I think most buyers are OK with a follow up email with some additional names.

    Just don't be a pest.

    I went ahead and emailed them. Unfortunately, I think it just went to a junk email account. Oh well. It was worth a try.
    Thanks, everyone.

    May be you should have used the name of the domain you sold him as the subject of the email.That way even if it went into the junk mail folder, his interest could have been piqued enough to open it. I think most people do check the junk folder every now and then and depending on the subject decide to read the mails or not. Again it might even have arrived in the inbox. Not all the mails that make it into the inbox get read. If the subject seems spammy then it gets unread.

    I would say give it a couple of days and try again. Just be honest and upfront about it. These few lines below have worked for me in the past in this situation.

    Hi,
    I am xxxxx. user xxxx on xxxxx. I sold you the domain name xxxxxx. Looking to reduce my domain portfolio so I am getting rid of these names at very low prices and thought you might be interested.
    XXXX.COM - $450
    XXXX.COM - $450

    Best

    On their website, they state that their domains are listed at Sedo, GoDaddy, etc and that those registrars know how to get in touch with them. They did not have a way to contact them on their website. I emailed the whois email contact which was a very generic email. I doubt they check that email. But, I'm remaining hopeful. For the Subject, I put the website name, so that it didn't just have a domain listed. There would have been been no reason to send an email with the website name, so hopefully it so be unique enough to open IF they glance at the subjects. I might try resending the email one more time in a week or so with the purchased domain as the subject.
    I'm not trying to get lots of money for my domains (or portfolio). Basically, I like to think of it is selling at reseller rates. I'd love for them (or anyone) to buy me out. Having 2 young kids right now, I'm just a little too busy.
    Thanks, again!

    Reaching out to them on social media could also be of help in this case I think. If they are a company and have a portfolio of domains then its highly likely they are on social media. LinkedIn is quite good. Some folks say they have had success reaching out to buyers through Facebook so might be worth a try as well.
