    Curious what rate fellow domainers are converting on outbound emails for every 100 (doesn't have to be literally but for simplicity of percentage sake) emails sent?
    Also methodology for lead finding and email format, if you care to share?

    Thanks

    Share your own experience first. You'll find that by offering value, you will receive value. Oh, and polls are for trolls :)

    I have just begun outbound emailing potential endusers in the past 10 days with the top 1-2% of my domains. Have only gotten about a 5% return to my emails regarding two domains FlightsAsap.com and GeoMarketing.io

    I will update if I close a deal

    Outbound is never easy, nor will it ever be. You want to have a position of strength in any negotiation. How do you achieve that? Make sure that you have what they are looking for.

    I must admit, for myself my outbound success rate has been almost 100% but I do spend a lot of time identifying the right domain, for the right company and equally importantly the right contact. Rarely get my asking price though.
    I do prefer dealing with the smaller UK companies 20 employees or less and yes, I hate rejection ;)

    I was trying to sell a .com domain to a company which was using the hyphenated version since 2013. Didn't had any success from 2013 to March 2017. Contacted the top guy via email and sold the domain name within 5 days without any problem and reduction of asking price.

    Around 200-300 personal emails for every sold domain... or 0,3-0,4%...
    It is difficult to find a right employee of a company, in most cases an emails get into a support service and will be deleted without reason, or even will be send to spam without reading.

    I didn't wish my own success in the UK market to sound arrogant, but I have always taken the attitude that, in a way, I have been working 'unofficially' on behalf of the targeted business for at least a day. Understanding their web presence, reasoning why the domain makes perfect sense for them, even if it's to be used just as a redirect. I don't hide that understanding in my contact email.
    Blanket or random targeting just seems a waste of time to me. One of my first self questions is "Is this proposal good enough" to make the business I've targeted willing to change it's literature, sales material etc to this new domain

    How can this be representative if there is no "0 sales" option?

    Domain names exists many decades, and still general public has no clue about the value. My last case was a NYC construction company who replied to my outbound email "what's the offer" when I replied my exact number in mid $x,xxx range, the representative had to ask if I meant US dollars. When i asked if they are looking for a new website, or just to redirect the domain to the their current website, he replied, he was considering to rebrand. I asked him for his best offer, no reply ever since. Bottom line... domain names are still undervalued and people / companies expect to pay 50 bucks at most. My vote would be 0-1 sale per 100 emails sent.

    You are right, one year ago an agent of a billion company (Market Cap $50B) wrote me about purchase my premium 3L.co and offered $300, i countered with x xxx, he returned with $500 and wrote that it is their max budget, because they do not have money :xf.confused:

    I've had a pretty good success rate doing outbound sales.
    The first thing I learned is that using the WHOIS record is the worst way to contact someone. It is usually linked to an old email or its linked to the companies IT guy who cares less that you have the "perfect domain" for his company.
    What the WHOIS is good for however, is seeing what other domains the registered email is connected to. (I use domain index not sure if every whois service lets you check that or not).
    ex: If i see that an auto parts site owns a bunch of car part domains and is using them as redirects, and lets say i own cartire.com or carmuffler.com, I know I have a chance of selling it to them, not at a premium obviously but a sale is a sale.

    The Second thing I learned is that getting in touch with the "right guy" is easiest by using social media sites. Linkedin, Facebook, and Twitter etc. has been the easiest method of direct contact for me.It makes you real, you look less like a spammer. So yeah change your profile picture to make it more professional, no one wants to buy a domain from a guy chugging a PBR with his shirt off at a music festival. lol sorry bruh and PLEASE don't contact a C.E.O. if you FB name is "Anthony LovingMyBoo Williams" or some other weird thing like that. This is a business so be professional.

    And Third getting someone on the phone is the easiest way to make outbound sales. PERIOD. The rejection hurts a bit more, but you can express yourself more freely and explain why this domain name is perfect for them etc. etc.
    The worst that can happen is they can say no, or the owner is 107 an doesn't understand "the crazy internet" (true story).

    Oh and maybe I should of mentioned this first, your name has to be good. Hello! Read that sentence again. If I am the owner of Car.com why the hell would I want to buy The-Car.net from you. I wouldn't and I would be the 200th person that ignored your email.
