I have been in negotiations for quite some time on a domain name, and I wanted to solicit your feedback on how to creatively close the gap. I’ll give you an idea of where things stand with the negotiation and want to know what you would do.
The buyer doesn’t want to pay more than $20,000 and I didn’t want to sell for less than $30,000. Both of us have sort of dug our heels in on this, and I offered to meet in the middle at $25,000 to close a deal. They stuck to their original offer, and I haven’t budged.
Assuming neither party really wants to move any further, the deal is likely going to die on the vine and not get done. They have more of a need for the domain name, but I have less desire to sell, so we’re essentially stuck.
Some options I’ve considered to make a deal include:
- Offering a payment plan like their offer up front and the difference from my bottom line in 6 months.
- Agreeing to their offer + some of their company’s products.
- Not replying and hoping they agree to a deal.
What would you do to get your deal?
