Additional Info:

  • I currently use 16 different email addresses for Outbound.
  • I follow up on a name at least 5 times over a period of 2 months before abandoning it.
  • Follow up is the key!
  • I do initial outbound even during closing hours, however, I restrict follow up during working hours (USA time).
  • I don’t buy much geo domains at a time.
  • I’ve sold quite good number of domains from reoutbound. Always try to reoutbound your domains after some months.

 

I’ll stop here. I hope this statistics are insightful and reader will find a way to learn one or two things from this data.

To some, my journey might be a failure (considering they have had far more success within the same period of 24 months since they started), to others this is a huge success, but to me, this is everything.

I’m forever grateful to Allah for this achievement.

More sales to us all. I wish us a better second half of 2021!

Take Care!
