David Newell: 9 Website Deal Killers
Recently, I ran into one of these deal killers. The website owner did a shady thing–He did a marketing push as we were in negotiations and Escrow. I and my partners were buying the company, but allowing the seller to keep some ownership, so the seller’s marketing push eroded mine and my partner’s trust in our soon-to-be partner.
