Discussion in 'Domain Research' started by crobbo, Dec 30, 2008.
My advice would be to:
Send a letter in the post.
Keep the letter professional - so typed rather than handwriting. Doesn't necessarily need to be premium letterhead, but certainly not cheap shite paper.
Keep it brief but cover the main points such as why the domain is so good, why they might want it and how much it is (or the sort of offer you're after).
Give them some clear instructions as to what they need to do to buy it.
Some people like detail, some don't - so whilst you keep the letter brief, give them a URL where they can visit your own website and find out more information (such as the transfer process).
There are no firm rights/wrongs here and there is a firm element of luck - sometimes it can be down to whether a secretary is in a good mood as to whether your letter ends up on the right desk or not. So target as many end users as you can to maximise your chances.
yep,all good advice, the 2 key points though:
1/ find out who your contact is, ie who would be doing the buying or the right person in marketing etc
2/ be very careful approaching endusers as you may find your self involved in a drs or wipo. ok if its something like cars.co.uk but many names could constitute bad faith even approaching them to buy.im not even talking blatant tms either, as theyre not worth registering at all.
say for example you owned a plural of a surname or a christian name for example. lots of firms may use
one way around can be to put up a holding page saying site has been taken down but now being sold off, and put a link to your sales site. worth covering arse
Separate names with a comma.
