I like No’s from End Users

Not as much as I like Yes responses, but a no responce is not the worst thing that could happen when it comes to end user sales.

This morning I awoke with a "No thanks" email in my inbox. I spent yesterday sending out a few end user emails and it was nice to know someone read them already even though they don't want to buy the name.

I like no's for two reasons, first they can be turned into a yes. I sent a nice email back saying thanks for the response said in case you ever want to reconsider to give me a call.

A "No" makes you move on, with this name in particular I was really targeting this one end user because they were the leaders in the space. Their response forces me to move on and look for new contacts.

Sometime I try way to hard to sell a domain to one company I think is the perfect fit for the domain and while they might be the perfect fit they may not want the domain. At least with a no you know they read your email and pitch and you do not need to waste your time trying to sell to them. When someone does not respond to my first email I might take time and later call them or send them a physical letter to see make sure I get through to them. If you are picking the right names to sell there should be more than one end user lead for each name.

If you get enough no's it can also tell you it might be time to try a new sales pitch or lower the price on the domain.

So, its not like I like hearing no on a domain sale, but if it is between a "no" response and not hearing anything I will take the no.

Also my flippa auction for DieselFuelFilter.com has met reserve already after 1 day!

    It is much more efficient trying to sell on a site like Flippa than sending out emails to potential users. Wishing you lots of continued success.

    The next best answer after yes, is no. It is silence that wastes time!

    I am just trying out flippa and I like how it is going so far! But, that is not always the case end user sales can be much better than to domainers depending on the name.

    @Tony Right on!
