New York based Internet media company, Acme Media, LLC, had a big day yesterday. Keith Levenson, CEO of Acme, attended yesterday’s Rick Latona TRAFFIC auction intent on one thing – winning Rio.com. By the end of the afternoon, the company prevailed in the auction, winning Rio.com for $450,000. The company plans to build a comprehensive website about the Brazilian city of Rio de Janeiro.
“Rio.com wonderfully complements Acme’s portfolio and will play a vital role in our strategic plan. We are eager to implement our innovative business plan and make this one of the premiere destinations on the web,” said Levenson. “We are also grateful for all the shared excitement and well-wishes from our colleagues, clients and competitors which, coincidentally, demonstrates the class, character and professionalism of our peers within and without the domain industry. Thank you to all and all I have to say is “stay-tuned and hold on to your seatbelts!“‘
In addition to scoring this great domain name at auction, the company achieved another milestone later on in the evening. Acme’s adult toy store, Vibrator.com, which pulls in seven figures in annual sales, had a successful re-design and re-launch. I know how stressful a re-launch can be, and I’m glad to see that it went well.
In addition to these great domain properties, the company also owns Audio.com, Devices.com, Therapist.com, HomeImprovement.com, Mortgage.net, and many other great domain names.
Congrats to Keith and his team at Acme.
