Buying a Domain - Purchasing Your Domain
Before the Call
During the Call
#1 – What is the name ahead of time. I can find out what I think it is worth, research the owner, and see what is happening on the domain right now.
#2 – I would like to have an understanding of what the proposed budget is for purchasing the domain name. I will provide my professional opinion if that budget coincides with the fair market value of the domain or if we are running a fool’s errand. Once the discussion is completed, an agreement will be sent, executed; then, the work will commence.
#3 – When do you need the domain by? This is a big one. Coming in hard and fast can create the idea of desperation in the seller’s mind, and thus a higher price. We need to test the waters.
#4 – Have you contacted the owner already? If so, what was communicated, and what was offered. What was their response? I ask that the client forwards me this information.
