“We love to share success!”

If I see two friends or colleagues that could benefit from meeting over a shared interest or converging path, I am always on the lookout to make a connection. Connecting friends or colleagues for each other’s betterment is something I enjoy doing and I appreciate when it is done for me without asking or expectation of a quid pro quo.

Just about every Sunday, Andrew Miller shares some random thoughts on LinkedIn. Oftentimes, his weekly posts offer some domain name news or insights. In his second bullet point yesterday, Andrew shared a list of domain names he and Hilco Digital are advising on, and he closed that thought with this:

“If you have a connection, client or are a potential interested party, connect with us and we will work with you, always. We love to share success!”


One of the things I have done over the years is to help friends or friends of friends strategize about domain names and acquisitions. I don’t do any third party consulting for fees, but I have always been happy to help educate people about domain names and how to buy a domain name or approach a domain registrant. When I can, I have helped connect prospective buyers and domain investors I know to discuss a domain name. It’s a great feeling to help two people I know reach a deal.

Many domain brokers are happy to work with individuals who are able to connect them to prospective buyers. In most cases, they will share in the proceeds of a deal with someone who helps make it happen. If you’re looking to benefit financially from a connection, the key thing is to connect with the broker prior to making an introduction to ensure both parties are on the same page. I’ve heard from people who were upset at someone for not compensating them for an introduction or connection that produced a deal, but there was nothing discussed prior.

Whether you’re connecting people or putting deals together for personal satisfaction or financial benefit, it’s always nice to be able to use domain industry knowledge to help someone outside the space. Something that comes naturally to domain investors can be opaque for others outside the business.
