Pair strikes a creative deal to get recruiting domain names.
I’ve written before about Harry Joiner and Jason Davis. Davis, who has one of the world’s finest collections of jobs.com domain names, sold CEOJobs.com to Joiner a couple months ago.
The two have struck another deal, and it shows how a little creativity in a deal can help get things done. The story goes like this:
-Joiner recently bought DirectorJobs.com, and Davis thought it was a great domain
-Joiner decided he should get CEOsearch.com to complement his CEOJobs.com domain
-After negotiating unsuccessfully for CEOsearch.com, Joiner asks Davis to negotiate for him
-Davis acquires CEOsearch.com from its owner, and then trades it to Joiner for DirectorJobs.com
Joiner got a domain he wanted and Davis got one he wanted. Everyone is happy.
Next time you’re working on a domain deal and can’t pull everything together, consider creative thinking.

Joiner is not only domain savvy but he runs the best digital campaigns on the web. He totally gets social media and viral marketing and is light years ahead of any recruiter I know.
Harry Joiner says
Wow, Owen. I’m humbled. Thanks! Here’s a secret: I’m not really a recruiter. Recruiting just pays the bills. I’m really a marketer and an entrepreneur. Like you. Or Jason Davis.
