Re: If I could only harness my toddler's energy...
I've tried multiple approaches... Bought ebooks from various people on this topic, so I can improve my skills...
The specific product I'm selling with these cold emails are domain names...
I register domain names... then look for a potential buyer! (Actually, I always have potential buyers in mind before I buy...)
I've sold around $5,600 worth of domain names so far... but for most of those, the buyer found me. Only about $600 of that was from my outbound cold emails... (But I haven't sent out that many...)
I find it much easier to write a "let's collaborate together" email - I've been doing those for decades! (Including back when I was in the ivory tower of academia...)
But I found that writing a "buy this from me, then you'll never hear from me again" email harder to write! (A lot of it is psychological... I'm really a people pleaser... )
What I've become comfortable with are variations on using something funny, or cute, or flattering, to open the door initially...
I've made two sales this way...
In one, I sent one email, and the person bought immediately!
In the other, I sent an email... then another... then another... All were very funny, and/or flattering, and always very friendly... In the end, I sent six emails over about 10 weeks! (There was no response, but I could tell that the emails were being opened and read... The fact they kept on opening my emails, even after I had sent several of them, I interpreted as a good sign...)
But, after sending six emails over 10 weeks... I gave up...
Then, about four months after I sent the last email... the buyer finally bought! I've had a look, and they've since turned the domain name into a very nice website (an improvement over their old website)... Which also gives me a feeling of satisfaction...
It's clear... you need patience in this game...
These are different from many other sales emails, because, for each email...
- I only have one product, that is, one domain name to sell... Once it's gone, it's gone..
- I have to tie the domain name specifically to the buyer, and why it is a good idea for them to get it...
My best sale so far (though not via cold email) was a domain name I've sold for just under $5,000, though over a one-year monthly payment plan... They've made 3 payments so far, and it's still ongoing... (I didn't count the unpaid amounts in my sales figure above, only the amounts already paid...)
