I get emails daily asking if certain domains are for sale. Most leads will turn out to be useless. However, some will start a conversation which will eventually lead to a sale. There are various wording that turns me off in email inquiries. Some of these are:
1 – I am a student doing a project and need your domain for it,
2 – I see that you are not “using” the domain name,
3 – I am looking at 5 domains and yours is one that I may be interested in,
4 – Your alexa number is over x million so I know you dont get traffic,
5 – How much is your domain?
In addition, emails that come from free email addresses are also a turnoff.
Please lmk if you have encountered these or if there are others that you feel should be added to the list.
