DomainSherpa – Off The Market Forever – November 23, 2022: Founders Series Interview with Andrew Gazdecki of Acquire.com

As we say on DomainSherpa – all roads lead to domains. And this is a show related to domains called “Off The Market Forever”, starring Chris Zuiker, Matthew Zuiker, and James Iles! In this show we focus on the domain space from the lens of end-user acquisitions and upgrades, from the perspective of the best domain brokers in the world and one of top journalists in the space – all who have unique insight and knowledge of the industry and domains as they relate to end-users.

In this episode, the Sherpas interview Andrew Gazdecki of MicroAcquire to discuss his journey creating his startup and what led to the upgrade and acquisition of the Acquire.com ultra-premium domain name. Andrew gives great insight into what led to the decision to acquire the domain, how he obtained the domain through a broker, and how much he paid for it. His story is another testament as to why it’s important for a company to lock up its exact-match domain name before it is “Off The Market Forever”! The Sherpas are also joined for the first time by MediaOptions.com broker, Matthew Zuiker.

So be sure to tune in!
