It’s just a waste of your time.
Have you ever received this response when you quote a price for one of your domain names?
“Good luck with that.”
It’s a bit of an insult. Like someone is calling you crazy.
It could be tempting to respond to the person and tell them why you aren’t crazy but I don’t think it’s worth it 99% of the time.
For example, this weekend I received an inquiry on CandyCorn.com. I looked up the inquirer and saw that it was a really small business in a really small town. I almost didn’t respond because it didn’t seem qualified. But you never know, so I quoted $35,000.
I got the “good luck with that” response.
I could huff and puff and tell them why I’m not crazy and educate them on the value of domain names…but why? It would be a waste of my time and their time. It’s better to just move on.
The exception would be if someone comes out with a decent starting point offer. For example, if someone who seemed qualified offered $10k for the name but said “good luck with that” to $35k, it might be worth discussing domain value to see if we can close the gap.
