End user sales are where some of the big money is in the domain industry, but last night at the meetup I talked to a few domainers who were not contacting end users or were frustrated because their previous attempts were unsuccessful.So I wanted to share a little that I have learned.

I know that one of the preferred methods of contacting an enduser seems to be just to send of a quick email to a few potential buyers. I have done this many time and sold a few names this way, but I think that their are some other methods of contacting endusers that will work just as well or better.

Pick up the phone! Call up the prospects and ask to speak to the person in charge of the website / marketing department or I try and talk to the owner of the business.

Snail Mail? What that? Sending letters can be a great way to get a response. In the letters I have sent out I believe that people view it as more official and formal. Some people view emails as spam or unsafe so if they know you are taking the time to send them a letter they will trust you. I will have more on this method later I just sent out a nice batch of letters and I will report the results later.

I have also faxed people and even send a Twitter DM before, all you have to do is be creative and keep trying new methods until you find one that works. Would you like to hear more about this I would love to wrote some more post on this topic?  Morgan Linton has done some great post over at Domainvestors.tv about endusers that are worth a read.

    I agree. I’ve recently sent off a letter in the mail because all of the other information is outdated (I’m actually buying a name, not selling it. Same idea though)

    We’ll see how it works.

    I have also heard of sending FedEx letters because you are virtually assured the letter will be opened. It sounds very expensive to me, though. Thanks for the inspiration, I will pick up the phone and contact some possible end users!
