Thread: A French Start-Up Wants to Buy libertyrider.com

    Default A French Start-Up Wants to Buy libertyrider.com

    So I found an email this am, from these guys, http://www.liberty-rider.com, asking if I'd be willing to sell my domain, libertyrider.com...

    I was non-committal in my reply, indicating I was planning on another ride ( true ), and that I "need to talk to some associates" (not precisely true). I did mention I could possibly rebrand for my next ride, leaving the door open by asking what they would think a fair price...

    I looked on one of those appraisal sites and the domain is not worth much (according to algorithms). While it is a good domain, and I could use it again, it lies dormant when I'm not on the road and it might be better to sell, if the price is right.

    Is anyone familiar with this stuff and able to give me a summary of what to expect? Pitfalls? Etc?

    TIA

    No idea. But I will say that in the art of negotiation, the first person to name a price is at a disadvantage.
    * Enforce Border Security – America should be guarding her own borders and enforcing her own laws instead of policing the world and implementing UN mandates.

    * No Amnesty - The Obama Administration’s endorsement of so-called “Comprehensive Immigration Reform,” granting amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, will only encourage more law-breaking.

    * Abolish the Welfare State – Taxpayers cannot continue to pay the high costs to sustain this powerful incentive for illegal immigration. As Milton Friedman famously said, you can’t have open borders and a welfare state.

    * End Birthright Citizenship – As long as illegal immigrants know their children born here will be granted U.S. citizenship, we’ll never be able to control our immigration problem.

    More on the startup...

    Translated from French...

    SUCCESS STORY: LIBERTY RIDER, THE START-UP OF TWO IFAG GRADUATES

    Created by two graduates of the IFAG Toulouse, Liberty Rider , the first motorcycle application in France, confirms its success. Lyberty Rider was voted "application of the day" by the daily newspaper Direct Matin (1.700.000 readers) and "application of the week" by readers of Maddyness, the magazine of French startups.
    .
    Designed for bikers, Liberty Rider is the first fall detection application in France. It was designed to detect motorcycle accidents in order to prevent emergency services as quickly and efficiently as possible.
    .
    . In a few months, the team grew from 4 to 12 employees.
    Libertyrider-960x540


    Liberty Rider also won the Toulouse Métropole Prize for the 2016 Digital Economy Trophies and the PEPITE National Prize. The start-up plans to grow and reach 100,000 users in 2017. To get there, it is organizing a crowfuding campaign on the Kiss Kiss Bank Bank platform. Do not hesitate to take a look and support Liberty Rider.

    You should probably take the domain name out of this thread.

    I would say you could probably get a few thousand for it. No more. Domain names aren't the be-all end-all anymore, with many hip companies choosing to use TLDs like .io and .is.

    Just to be clear: it could be worth a few thousand *to them*. Otherwise, for anyone else, the market value is probably vaguely accurate, +/-.

    I agree with Angela that the stronger position will be to have them make offer first, if possible.

    Depends on their reason to buy. If they want to use your domain as their actual domain, that might be worth a couple grand. But if they are just trying to scoop up domains that are similar to theirs to get them off the market, probably a couple hundred.

    they already have a pretty good domain name.

    Be sure to check out Sedo, which is the leader in the domain name market:
    https://sedo.com

    I just ran a search for libertyrider - it looks like someone has libertyriders.com, which has an asking price of 4,788 USD. Obviously they may not get that but there it is.

    I think libertyrider.com is a good name, I'd keep it unless they offered a reasonable amount. IMO, a few thousand isn't worth the loss of the asset and future opportunity.

    Another possibility, you could consider a deal with a mix of cash and some company stock/equity.

    Bryan, you could also move it to a private section where it's wouldn't get indexed (may be too late).

    Not sure the big deal... How might open discussion affect the value? I told the guy in my reply that I wanted to talk to some associates, which I am doing

    So, progress report? @ronpaulhawaii
    "The program of liberalism, ...if condensed into a single word, would have to read: property..."

    -Ludwig von Mises

    "Patriotism, not nationalism, should inspire the citizen. The ethnic nationalist who wants a linguistically and culturally uniform nation is akin to the racist who is intolerant toward those who look (and behave) differently. The patriot is a "diversitarian"; he is pleased, indeed proud of the variety within the borders of his country; he looks for loyalty from all citizens. And he looks up and down, not left and right."

    -Erik Maria Ritter von Kuehnelt-Leddihn

    "The monarch is a responsible person. The fact that a monarch is responsible "to God alone," rather than to an assembly or a popular majority, is rather shocking to an agnostic mind; but while God cannot be fooled, the masses can. While it is perhaps true that "one cannot fool all the people all the time," it seems one can fool millions for centuries."

    -Ibid.

    Nothing happened - http://www.libertyrider.com/
    The essential English leadership secret does not depend on particular intelligence. Rather, it depends on a remarkably stupid thick-headedness. The English follow the principle that when one lies, one should lie big, and stick to it. They keep up their lies, even at the risk of looking ridiculous.
