… nope, it’s not the same thing. When you’re contacting domainers to buy one or more of their domains, you’re automatically in a position that’s considerably more complicated than when you’re being contacted by a domainer who wants to sell something or when a domain is being sold publicly.
Let’s call it the “motivation” factor.
A person who is actively trying to sell a domain on the reseller market (by contacting other domainers or by offering it through a reseller market venue) is obviously more motivated to sell than someone who is being contacted.
For this reason, you shouldn’t take it personally if the price you’re being quoted when you contact a domainer doesn’t seem “reasonable”… if the person in question is not motivated enough to sell at a price you consider reasonable, c’est la vie.
Just thought I’d dedicate a post to this aspect because a lot of people make the mistake of thinking that from a negotiation perspective, contacting domainers in order to buy something from them is the same thing as being contacted by domainers who want to sell something or making an offer for something that’s being sold publicly.Advertisement: DomainingServers.com lets you host UNLIMITED domains at $0.98/month and we're putting a LIFETIME money back guarantee on the table (if you're not satisfied, we'll issue a full refund).
