I don’t check my corporate mailbox regularly because I don’t receive a lot of important physical mail. Just about everything I need comes to me via email. I visit my mailbox every once in a while so it isn’t overflowing to the point they have to package it up and ask me to wait in line to retrieve it.
On my last trip to the post office, I had a Priority Mail envelope waiting for me in the box. I opened the envelope and it had a letter from someone offering to sell me a domain name. The letter was pretty much a full page, and it had information about the domain name. The owner wanted nearly six figures for this domain name. To be frank, it is a domain name I would not even hand register, so I would never buy it nor could I recommend that someone else buy it. This is not the first time I have received a letter like this before.
Please do not send me a letter to try and sell me a domain name!
If you have a great domain name for sale, I am always looking to buy excellent one word .com domain names at good prices. Please send them to me via email. Great names stand out regardless of the method of contacting me. In fact, there is a far greater chance I will respond to an email than a letter. It’s much easier.
There is nothing wrong with trying to sell mediocre names. I see mediocre (and worse) names sell all the time. I am not really going to pay any sort of premium price to buy someone else’s mediocre names though. I have enough of my own mediocre names that I don’t need any more! There is probably nothing wrong with trying to sell a domain name to a prospect via mail, FedEx, or UPS either. In some cases, it may be the best way to get in touch with a prospective buyer. That said, sending me a letter or package is a waste of your money.
To summarize, it is far easier for me to consider buying domain names via email than via USPS, FedEx, or UPS. If you send a domain name sales letter to me via snail mail, you are wasting your money.
