Daily Poll: Do You Manage Your Own Inbound Leads?


When someone inquires about a domain name I own, I negotiate with them. The negotiation is one of the more riveting aspects of domain name ownership, and I enjoy it. Some people don’t feel comfortable negotiating and others prefer to use an expert – like a domain broker – when they get inbound leads. The thinking (from what I understand) is that they will end up with a better price if they work with someone who negotiates for a living, even after commission, than if they negotiated on their own. A negotiation can be stressful and time consuming, so handing off a negotiation to someone else is desirable for some people.

    If you do it yourself you can get the price to the buyer quicker. Brokers will cross-sell on your lander leads. If you get a fresh Broker and the lead is not handled correctly you may end up with hefty legal bills.
