How far would you go to sell a domain? How far have you ever gone to sell one? How much would you spend to sell a domain? These are all the questions that came to mind as I opened my mail box yesterday and saw these two postcards amongst other mail from Google and Yahoo telling me to come and advertise with them. These two postcards were not from Yahoo or Google. As a matter of fact, I have never had any previous dealings with its sender/s to the best of my knowledge.
I will not string you along any longer, here are the pictures of the postcards. After you have gone through them, consider the fact that one of them has 28 cents postage on it. If the sender sent out 100,000 pieces of mail, that will bring the cost of this mailing to $28,000 USD. What if they just sent a misery 5,000 pieces? the cost will be $1400.
I am not knocking this mailing by any means. In-fact I give the people or person responsible an “A” for effort. I encourage anything that brings domaining to mainstream but my problem is that neither my wife nor any of my friends got this postcard. Just wondering if the domaining community was these peoples target, wouldn’t a simple ad on Domaining.com or DnForum or even a featured listing on Sedo been cheaper? Please share your thoughts.
