I’m pretty sure most domainers underestimate the importance of following up, hope this post represents a good reminder. Let’s assume End User 1 made an offer for DomainABC.com 9 months ago but you declined it and he wouldn’t budge, let’s also assume that End User 2 made an offer for the same domain 3 months ago and that End User 3 made an offer you’re tempted to accept a few days ago, after a back-and-forth negotiation.
Before accepting the offer End User 3 made, don’t forget to contact End User 1 and End User 2, in other words the people who made offers in the past. Things change, circumstances change and at the end of the day, what do you have to lose?
Make them bid against End User 3.
Maybe one of them will make a higher offer, maybe not.
If not, you didn’t really lose anything aside from the minute it took you to write an email.
If one of them makes a higher offer, it could get interesting because once 2 motivated buyers start bidding against each other, you never know what can happen.
That’s it, just a friendly reminder: don’t forget to follow up
