At the end of last year I made a couple of domain / site sales. Yesterday, I found myself browsing through the list of of domains that I sold and noticed one of them had expired. This happened to be one of the better names that I owned and although I shouldn’t care, since I no longer own the name I felt it was important to ping the new owner.
I decided to check on the domains because I am always curious what the new owners end up doing with them. I spend a great deal of time investing in domain names and one of the best feelings isn’t necessarily the money I have derived from selling the names. It is the mere fact that someone is spending the time and effort to unlock a specific domain name’s potential.
Hopefully the new owner of the name ends up seeing the email that I sent to them soon. I would hate for them to be faced with dropping a valuable domain name because they overlooked the expiration date of the name. For me, domain sales aren’t just an open and closed case. I tend to extend myself past the point of simply selling a domain name. I want those who have purchased names from me to know that they are buying from someone that they can really trust and will have their best interest. Even if this means checking on a few of the names and sending personal reminder emails.
Call me old fashion but I want everyone to succeed in this domain race, regardless if I am competing directly with them or not.
