    Hi all

    As title says do you do outbound emails for domains?

    If you do whats your success rate.
    If you do not why not.

    Regards

    I have done a few outbound phone calls in the past.
    Success rates are quite high if you get to speak to the right person.

    @Pedigree

    I do not no as always replied on inbounds only but as my domains are stacking up i might look at it again.

    I used to years ago but was time consuming but did get a few small sales.

    So before i look at it just curious what others do.

    I have a couple of times and like you have had a couple of small sales. To put some numbers on it, I probably targeted about 20 companies and I would say I never got a response from 16 of them. I decided it wasn't really worth it in the end.

    Yes, but he said email lol. Emails are difficult. The best way is to use a service like Mailgun that can guarantee deliverability. The second thing is not to piss them off, GDPR makes outbound email quite difficult sometimes. Use a good subject title, use Grammarly to correct your grammar, and set the correct tone if you don't have those skills. I've sold a few domains via outbound email, but outbound calls is over 100% more effective because you can engage with them there and then. But then, that's a whole other game. You have to handle objections and rejections and it can get very tough on the psyche.

    Yes... I know. I was suggesting a better alternative of outbound marketing domains, from my personal experience.
