Negotiating Tips from Bob Parsons

Go Daddy’s Twitter account posted a link to a video with Bob Parsons discussing how to negotiate successfully. Although it is a couple years old, I think it’s an interesting video to watch, especially in light of the recent Go Daddy deal. In the video, Parsons offers 6 tips to successful negotiations. Some of these tips may help you sell domain names, make business deals, or work out other deals.

I’ve embedded the video below for your convenience, although you can visit the original post on to see the discussion that followed.

    and the rest of my domains at godaddy expire this month and next. It will be big pleasure to see them expired.
    I have been waiting for this parson to tell you what I think of you!

  2. Personally, I’ll take eye candy + business tips anytime. If anything, it’s motivation to follow through with said business tips. Since this is for beginners, I’ll just settle for the eye candy.
