I have setup my own sales landers for about 5000 of my domain names. (more on this at a forthcoming article) I did that a couple of months back when I started leaving Sedo.
At this lander I invite potential buyers to send an offer and add a message as well if they want. Yesterday I got an offer for £25 with a message saying:
If you aren’t using it I’m willing to buy it and put the domain to good use.
Of course I was impressed with this great offer for a 2001 registered domain name. Not. My reply, because I didn’t want to be rude just yet, was simply:
Is your offer £25?
I was expecting any kind of replies but I couldn’t anticipate this one:
No sorry it was £5
Believe it or not he was actually afraid of overpaying by spending £25 for an 11 year old domain. I have gotten a few inquiries to donate a domain to charity and even got a $2 offer but I have never had a buyer afraid of overpaying at this level. So I think you will all agree that he can have the Best Buyer Award for 2012.
My reply to this £5 offer was a deserving:
Is this a joke?
Did you have similar experiences in 2012? Please share them by leaving a comment below.
