Here are some words and phrases I see all too often, that folks should avoid putting into their domain name inquiries:
4. I’m a broker
5. we have a client
6. starting a blog
7. we don’t have a large budget
8. I’m a serious buyer
9. if you have a list of other domains
10. this email is not spam
Which other words and phrases are a turn-off, if you’re a domain name owner receiving an inquiry?
And I agree with George that domain investors start to get either suspicious or dismissive when getting those kinds of offers.
I got one offer last week that was just classic,
“I know all you so called investors are just scumbags so just give me a reasonable price.”
My reply was you had me at scumbags.
He replied back with ???
Usually the conversation is over when one side calls the other side a scumbag.
