I was very sorry to see LeadRefs shut down 10/19/12, it was a great tool. Do you know of any similar services available or if another company is relaunching LeadRefs? I wasn’t sure if the software was acquired or just shut down.

Thanks!

Todd

The problem is that sometimes my email service is sending my emails as Spam.

Maybe because i´m sending it like Bcc and sending for 10/15 at one time.

I have to try to solve this problem.
If anyone knows how to guarantee that it is arriving to the recipient´s inbox, please tell me.

Was wondering if you wouldn’t mind telling us what domain you sold. We would like to share stories of users who were successful at selling their names using LeadRefs. You can email it to us at info@leadrefs.com if you are interested in disclosing that info. Thanks everyone for trying out our tool. We hope everyone is enjoying the new features and Elliot thanks again for the mention!

So if you watch your whois counts in Godaddy or another registrar it will be +1 because of the LeadRefs tool.

I knew if I sent enough emails, someone would respond. I closed my first deal today using LeadRefs.com. It was the fastest deal I’ve done so far. Thanks again.

How do you define “call to action names”?

buyXXXX.com, cheapXXXX.com, shopforXXX.com, etc.?

I send out individual emails and try to address the recipients by name. It may save time to send out emails in bulk but the response rate is higher when I send them to individuals, especially when I address them by name.

Do you use BCC and send-to-all?

I use my regular email account, which is a free service.

Had a question though: Which email service do you use to send mails to these leads?

I entered a LLLL dot com and found two companies on the opposite ends of the earth using their country code with an exact match for their name brand. I did not know there was a .co.il
We will see…

It’s a cool service. They must have some kind of tracking in the background though. If I type just one letter of a domain it lists some of my other domains (ones I’ve never searched using their service nor browsed to). I’m thinking they match the incoming IP address to one of the searches’ admin email, then pull a report and populate against that IP address. Anyway, I like it.

Thank you for pointing out this service. I used zfbot but i have to get the emails one at a time and leadrefs saves a ton of time. also for now you can only do 15 queries per day. I tried yesterday and hit the limit and i emailed leadrefs and they promptly replied and said it will change in the future. Anyway Thanks again!
