I get a lot of inquiries related to selling domain portfolios. My domain activity is 80% selling and 20% acquisitions. Therefore, I’m always looking for quality domains to be offered and I do buy based on the quality and potential of these domain names.
That being said, I detest people emailing me using made up names.
Signing your email pitch with a name like “William Smith” for example, when the domain itself is registered to a guy in Pakistan named Pervaiz.
I’m aware of the trend for outsourced personnel to use Western names and surnames when acting as support for US companies, but when you’re trying to sell your domain in this manner it does not cut it for me.
Also, a company from Eastern Europe believes it’s “sexy” to email domainers with a link to its portfolio, consisting of low quality .me domains and other “domain hacks”, using a female name who apologizes for having gone on a “sabbatical”. That person also has a page with a photo and various contact links; only she’s a figment of the company owner’s imagination.
Long story short: when emailing me, using your real info if you really want a response.
