Four Active Inquiries on One Domain Name
As they say, “when it rains, it pours.” I thought this was pretty cool and wanted to share it with you. It doesn’t happen very often, but I now have four ongoing inquiries for the EventManagement.com domain name via DomainNameSales.com.
Since two of the inquiries were made directly from the landing page, I am in direct talks with those two parties. Both have submitted opening offers, although we are pretty far away from the asking price. There are also two ongoing inquiries that were submitted via GoDaddy. This means I don’t know who the prospects are because they are negotiating and dealing directly with DNS brokers.
Negotiating with four parties at once on one domain name is new territory for me, and I am curious how you would proceed with your negotiations if you were in my shoes. I gave my asking price to the two prospects I am dealing with directly, and the brokers should have informed the other prospects about the asking price. Obviously, I have a bit of room to negotiate when I don’t have to pay a sales commission, but it’s a bit tricky to have four negotiations going on at the same time, especially when two of them are out of my control.
Have you had four live offers on a domain name at once? Do you have any tips for negotiating with four parties at the same time? This is obvious a good “problem” to have although, I don’t know if any of the prospects can pay the asking price.
