Meet The Team: Rob Wilson

Coming from a background in sales, Rob Wilson has now been in the domain industry for many years. He has been with Saw.com from the very beginning and has become a crucial part of our domain brokerage team. Rob sat down with us to discusses his hobbies, personal mottos and love for the domain industry.

Read on to get to know more about our team member, Rob!

Name 3 words that best describe you.

Three words that describe me would be: Loyalty, Integrity and Happiness.

What are you happiest doing? (When you are not working)

I am happiest spending time with my family (and cooking!)

Do you have any skills/talents people do not know about?

In a past life I used to be a sailing and windsurfing instructor. I have sailed across the Atlantic Ocean twice.

What would your personal motto be?

“If you’re not fast, you’re food!” (I am between this and) “Change is the only constant”.

I think they both sum up for me that you have to be dynamic in order to move forward. To be successful you need to be able to adapt and thrive.

How did you discover the domain industry? Why did you join the Saw.com team?

While I enjoyed the challenges and rewards of my position as the Head of Residential Sales for the largest telco in the country, I realized that I didn’t see my family very often.

I was looking for a new challenge and a new industry to explore. This is when I found out about the domain industry and started working at Uniregistry who were based on Grand Cayman. I was hooked! Domains gave me the opportunity to work on new projects every day and have time to see my family, it was a great work/life balance.

When I was asked by Jeff Gabriel and Amanda Waltz to join the team at Saw.com, I jumped at the chance! It was exciting to have the opportunity to work with people I consider to be my friends and to help to build a company from the ground up. I love the work culture and I genuinely enjoy going to work every day. Additionally, I have the opportunity to work with some of the best companies in the world and help them to acquire some of the best domains in the world. The opportunity to work with these amazing people who are not only superstars in the domain industry but are genuinely lovely individuals who I consider friends – best move I ever made!

Cryptocurrencies are volatile by nature, and it certainly has been a crazy past week in the crypto markets. At one point this week Bitcoin was off by 50% from its highs a few weeks ago. Additionally, Ether is down 50% from its high just a few days before. Amanda Waltz answers questions about Saw.com, the rise of cryptocurrency, and cryptocurrencies impact on domain name sales.

Do you think that the fate of cryptocurrency has an impact on some aftermarket domain sales?

Yes, I do. I think for savvy domain investors either on investor level but also on the end user level, we have seen a rise in folks asking if sellers are willing to be paid in cryptocurrencies. So, absolutely I would say that actually has been happening for quite sometime.

I can think of a few deals, even 3 or 4 years ago, where end users in the start up space were offering on domain names that I was representing. Or domains they had asked me to acquire for them, that was definitely a question. Will the seller accept cryptocurrency? Sometimes they did. I did have one seller that jokes with me now that he wished he would have taken that offer. I think we are seeing more questions being asked of how an offer is written. And we are working with our team to make sure that when an offer is presented that the currency, whether thats euros, pounds or anything else, it is clearly defined.

Was 2020 compared to your experience brokering domains across the past 10 years, do you think it was the biggest.

2020 was not for me personally, no. 2021 so far actually has been. 2020 was the first year of Saw.com, and I am really proud of what we are doing for our customers. I am thrilled with the team we are assembling, I think we have some really great brokers, but I think they are also really good people. I think that is incredibly important when you are building a company. You want people that are good at their craft and job, but I think you also want to make sure you are assembling the right team as far as strengths and weaknesses.

What Does a Domain Broker Do?

Domain names are the digital real estate of a company. They define brands, increase credibility, improve SEO and improve your business in so many more ways. A domain has the power to bring an individual or business to a new level of success by improving their brand online. Domain brokers are the people who help clients who want to acquire or sell these domain names. By understanding what domain brokers do, it will be easier for you to reach out to one in the future. Read more to learn about domain brokers and how they can help you reach your business goals.

What is a Domain Broker?

The online world can be a confusing place. With millions upon millions of registered domain names it can feel impossible to find one that fits you and your brand, at the price you want. This is where a domain broker comes in. Domain brokers are essentially real estate agents, but on the Internet. Instead of selling houses, they are selling domain names. Domain names are a virtual street address, how your potential customers or clients find you and visit you on the internet. So, similar to a real estate agent, a domain broker is an expert in the online world of domain names. They are the experts in the industry, and the best people to consult when acquiring a domain.

Domain brokers work for you and with you, the client, to help you achieve your goals. They will listen to your goals and domain name needs and apply their expertise of the industry. There are two types of domain brokers; seller brokers and buyer brokers. A seller broker is a broker that represents you when you want to sell a domain. A buyer broker is a broker that represents you when you want to buy a domain. However, most domain brokers will represent you with either buying or selling.

Why should you use a Domain Broker?

Using a domain broker to sell a domain or buy a domain makes it easier for you. You can sit back and relax as domain brokers do the heavy lifting. They will walk you through the process, utilize their network and make your business goals achievable.

Domain brokers add many advantages to the buying and selling process:

  • Domain Brokers protect your privacy: When you use a domain broker while looking to buy a domain specifically, your identity remains anonymous. Your domain broker represents you throughout the process, and talks to the seller without ever revealing your identity. Why would you want to remain anonymous? Well, if you are a larger successful company, a seller might raise their price on the domain. Additionally, a company might not want their domain name search going public, as it could reveal some of their future business plans.
  • Domain Brokers have a strong network: A domain broker who has been in the industry for a while has many connections among other brokers and companies. Additionally, brokers always have a network of buyers looking to buy different domain names. If your broker has a strong network, they will know who owns the domain you want and how to reach them.
  • Domain Brokers can give advice: As experts in the industry, your broker can guide you through the process and answer any questions you have. Brokers can give advice on the pricing of the domain you are buying or selling, ensuring you do not overpay as a buyer or get under paid as a seller. Brokers can also give you advice on a backup plan in case the domain you want is not available. Additionally, they can suggest other domains if they believe yours is not good for SEO.
  • Domain Brokers have negotiation experience: Buying or selling a domain name is challenging, but negotiating the sale of a domain name can be even harder if you are doing it alone. Additionally, you could let your emotions get the best of you. As the internet real estate agents, domain brokers are very good at negotiating. They can be in between the buyer and seller, mediating any tension and informing both parties about the domain’s valuation. Furthermore, you know you will be getting a fair deal if an experienced broker is handling the negotiations.
