The UnMotivated Seller: 10 Keys to Getting the Best Price for Your Domain Name

By - November 8, 2011 - 2 Comments
We've all gotten the email.  Someone is interested in buying your domain name and they'd like to make an offer.  Usually they offer you $50 on a name you paid 5K or more but occasionally you'll get someone that actually wants to negotiate and may be serious.  While I may not have been involved in the million dollar domain negotiations of Rich Schwartz or Rick Latona, business is business and the art of negotiation translates from one object to another, including domains.
