I apologize for the lack of posts recently. I haven’t had as much time on the road as I’d initially hoped, and I twisted my ankle last week. Those of you I’ve spoken to on Twitter also know that I’ve been corresponding with an end-user who has contacted me about some of my travel domains. It’s just an inquiry at this point, but it has involved several nights of composing detailed emails in German and sending them to my translator for proofreading.
We could all learn a few things about negotiating from the Domain King himself, Rick Schwartz, whose latest blog post covers the finer points of his no-BS approach to domain selling: How to Sell a Domain Name, Part 1.
A lot of what I’m doing in relation to selling is improvising, particularly when it comes to negotiating. I received some excellent advice this week, but there comes a point where you have to listen to your gut. I almost had a headache this afternoon, thinking about this particular issue and whether I made the right decision. Only time will tell.
In the end, everything I’m doing is a learning experience. I’m not afraid of making mistakes, because I know a) they’re unavoidable, and b) I’ll learn from them.
