- “I can’t afford to pay that much for a .com, because I’ll lose a ton of traffic to the .ca.”
- “Your domain isn’t a real word, so it can’t be worth more than $100.”
- “I’ll see if I can borrow some money from my mother to pay for the domain.”
- “I am sorry but that is not a price we can affort. Please make me an offer which is reasonable for us.”
- A prospective buyer inquired about their FirstName .com domain. He offered $10, and I countered with $5,000 and gave him a list of specific FirstName .com domain sales. Not a list of asking prices….real sales. His response, “Giving a list of domains sold at outrageous price doesn’t help.”
- Prospective Buyer: “I’m really only interested in your LNN.com domain for defensive purposes. Keyword + NN.com is my go-to domain.”
My response: Uhhhh, since you don’t already own it…….you really should go buy Keyword + NN.com since it’s available at a $2k BIN and it’s your “go-to” domain. As I’ve told you, I’m only willing to sell my LNN.com for a couple times that.
- “I think you can get that offer one day if the Internet uses domain names in the future and factoring inflation, you may need to wait a few hundred years to get that offer for that domain then.”
How about you…….any good negotiation responses lately?
