Missed Connections is paying homage to my favorite (for comical reasons) section of Craigslist. According to Wikipedia, this is what it is:
“A type of personal advertisement which arises after two people meet but are too shy or otherwise unable to exchange contact details.”
As a sales team, we have a lot of success in selling domain names. There are also situations where the buyer inquiries on a domain, negotiates a great price, then doesn’t pay.
The negotiations are done, the seller has set a purchase price but then the buyer either had a change of heart, is still considering it, too many cooks in the kitchen, dragging their feet and I’m sure many more reasons they didn’t pay yet. So it sits… but not any longer! Snooze you lose!
It dawned on me after seeing a client let a name drop, then seeing it sell for more than the listed price they had on it for over five years that investors might be interested. Even end users! These are good names and all have shown buyer interest.
This is our first go at it, so I called a few sellers, got their approval and I thought we would advertise these buy now prices on the following names as Missed Connections. All prices are in USD. If you are interested in purchasing one of the domains at the price stated below, I highly suggest you visit the domain name directly, make a new inquiry (fill out the Uniregistry contact form) and in the message box note the price and this article.
This is not a starting point, and there will not be negotiations. It is first come, first serve. The sellers are not obligated to sell these names to you if they decide to have a change of heart or sold it already.
I think we can have some fun with this. Everyone hates it when a buyer does not pay. Let’s make that connection and put a positive spin on this and see what happens.
Until next time folks,
