How a Startup Founder Negotiated and Purchased Snappa.com – With Chris Gimmer

Chris Gimmer and his co-founder built a pretty slick piece of software called Snappa. I liked it so much I became a paying customer just nine months after their launch.

But they launched on a .io domain name and – as Gimmer describes in “How (and Why) We Purchased the Snappa.com Domain for $40,000” – their “cool startup domain name” left their customers confused and questioning the longevity of their operations. So, negotiating the price down from $84,500, they bought Snappa.com for $40,000 on a payment plan.

But nothing is ever as easy as it sounds, and in this interview Gimmer explains the details behind his thought process at each stage of his bootstrapped SaaS startup.

eBay Find: From $550 Acquisition to $10,000 Sale – With David Kelly

Usually only worthless domain names are found when searching on eBay. (At least that’s my experience.)

But David Kelly uses a secret tip to filter and find diamonds in the rough.

He shares that tip, as well as how he negotiated and purchased TopOffers.com for $550 – while normally the eBay platform only encourages you to just bid on stuff you want.

In addition, you’ll learn how Kelly both actively and passively markets his domains for sale, and how pricing it in one location led to this $10,000 sale.
