Increase the End User Response Rate Using Social Media

Warning: Illegal string offset 'keywords_time' in /home1/theman37/public_html/ on line 103

The most annoying about contacting end users is the low rate of response. Sometime I will send 50 letters or emails and get only 1 or 2 responses other time more, but it is time consuming. A few days ago while on twitter and writing end user letters at the same time I decided to send the company a quick tweet that I am going to be sending them an email about a domain.  Would they look for it in their email inbox. There was also another company that I wanted to email that the whois email bounced so I also sent them a quick tweet asking for an email to contact them at. They quickly send me another email to reach them at.

In both cases the end user email I sent was responded to. The first said they were not interested in the domain and the second one may result in a sale in the next few days.  Even in the first case I know that the company read and got them email.

Twitter, Facebook, and Linkedin can all be used to inform a potential end user and tell them you will be sending them an email and to look for it. Also if you ask for a contact email you are certain that it is going to be checked unlike whois emails which can often be out of date or wrong.

To contact the end user I did not use my TeenDomainer twitter account. I used a personal account which I think is more professional and also it is under the same name that is on the domain who is if they happen to look it up.

I know I will be using social media more to see if I can increase the response rate to my end user emails. It helps add some sort of connection with the contact and hopefully they feel more comfortable dealing with you.

    i though you could not “twitt” someone unless they were following you or vice versa? How did they get your msg if they are not following you?

    You can send an @ reply to anyone without following them. If you want to send a DM they have to be following you like you said. I think that both ways work. The @ reply is more public which can be good or bad.

    Good idea. I thought you would have an e-mail sign up page on your site though. I’m trying to learn more about opt-in e-mail marketing.
