Interesting exchange of communcations when a company buys out another company after it stops trading, the domain (website) transfer was eventually transferred to the new company.
[Website Designers] Firstly sorry to hear that the company has stopped trading, I worked with them for many years adn worked on the website for 3 years. I had been putting off contacting you as I know you didn’t need any immediate ‘hassle’ or stress about the website after the company stopped trading.
Have been emailed by another website design company regarding the website. What are you hoping to do with them? Happy to help him but firstly will need to level your account as there are two portions of work and hosting to be paid for (we have previously done an SEO project on the website and also cleared some major virus infections on the site as well as various updates)
Assume this email will reach the correct person and if you reply we can create the updated invoice for you to settle.
[Website Designers] Understand that you have taken over the old company building that we worked with are you building a website from scratch or would you be interested in purchasing the old website?
If you are interested then happy to talk in more depth about the website and what we can offer, believe it will take years to build a website / content and promote it enough to give yourself a steady stream of enquiries so hopefully you can see the benefit to taking over this existing website
[New Business] We did not buy the company but we bought all the old company properties. We are a part of a big travel company in Bangkok and the major shareholder is one of a powerful politicians in Thailand. We will use their website.
Could you please remove all contents on the old website? We now own the right to its names, contacts and all properties.
[Website Designers] Hi, I would say by operating in the same sector as the old company from its old premises it wouldn’t make good business sense not to use the existing website and think it will not be in your best interest to build a new one from scratch as the site attracts releveant enquiries for its services as well as equipment, any new site would take 10 years to build the visitor numbers that we get.
After working with the previous company owners we built and promoted the website over many years, we have created a company called Ocean Zone Divers here in the UK so have the right to use the domain name but will remove the address from the website to avoid confusion but really would suggest you think about the ‘value’ of having this website that has taken us many years to build and promote in Google where we have grown the visitor numbers to a point now that will support your new venture.
If you want to know visitor numbers and enquiry numbers I can give you that also I can give you references of other professional companies that will endorse ourselves and our offer to you.
Additionally If you decide to buy the website I can give you all enquires (even had one today) that it has received as well as access to the full website statistics.
[New Business] Ok we have decided to look at the website, please give us full details so we can decide if a purchase is a good business decision.
