So a thread starter on Namepros posted the following:
By selling domains to end-users, I got an impression that the women I contacted are absolutely not interested in buying domains.
Since women in almost all industries are increasingly occupying managerial positions, this could constitute a major barrier to this domain selling mode (via cold emails) in the future.
Do most of them have no idea what the domains are and what their significance is, or it’s about something else? (The issue relates to the territory of the USA.)
Does it make sense to send offers to them, or should them simply be avoided?
What are your experiences in this regard?
From there the thread was off and running. Obviously the point about gender is completely off base. Women have no aversion or failure to understand domain names.
I think when people don’t make sales through outbound marketing there is a tendency to jump to some wild conclusions.
Most of the time the names are not good or they are not a right fit for the prospect.
Some of the replies to the op were what you would expect:
Wow.. That is such a mysogynistic post. What makes you think that women do not understand the significance of domains? Perhaps they are not interested in the domains as they are either not relevant or not good!
I suspect it is the latter but since your domains are not really listed, I’ll reserve that opinion.
Ive done plenty of transactions with women. I don’t even know where you get off posting something like this. I don’t know why in your mind you want to discriminate women. You ever consider maybe it’s your crappy domains and that’s why they don’t want to buy them?
The op did get someone to jump onboard with a bit of defense, DomainRecap posted:
That’s the entire point of the post, that men are collectors and hoarders who will buy far more superfluous domains than women.
To which Imadoer correctly replied:
Um NO, the OP was saying it was pointless to try to sell domains to women which is complete bs. Women buy domains they also sell domains. Domainers in this industry may be majority of men, But there’s tons of women that are end-users out there that will buy the right domain from you if its presented to them. FYI I Just had a offer from a woman 3 days ago for 2,500 but they dont buy domains… sureeeee
To which the op then brought up what he perceived was the religion of Imadoer, though his avatar is not a picture of himself but rather actor Sasha Baron Cohen.
EmilK the OP posted:
Here, in Europe, women are highly respected and appreciated. They do not even have to put masks on the face to preserve honor and respect for the environment.
You missed the topic, my bearded friend with a turban.
This thread was not the goal to underestimate women, as it seems to you, but ordinary personal statistics of more experienced forum members in terms of the question of the percentage of women familiar with the domains role in marketing.
Some social activities are simply more immanent to men than to women and vice versa.
If someone asked the issue of women’s representation among fans of football and fishing, or perhaps programming or plumbing, it would surely be a “smartman” like you, who would argue that more women like, for example football, than most men. A stupid way of reasoning.
It was enough to point out that your super-quality domains are buying more women than men. The insults were not necessary, nor did you help us in this way to deepen this topic.
To me, as a Christian, your comments on the “protection of women’s rights” are really not necessary.
