Earlier today I wrote about the company that rebranded to Earn.com. Earn is a platform that allows users to contact participants for a small, varying fee. Users are only charged if the participant responds to their message. The concept behind Earn.com is pretty simple and seems like it could be a win/win.
I was curious if anyone from the domain industry (either active or formerly active) is participating, and I found quite a few people I know personally. Here are some of the Earn.com participants with domain industry experience you can email in exchange for a small fee:
- Andrew Rosener – Media Options ($5 contact fee)
- Jen Sale – Evergreen.com ($5 contact fee)
- Dave Thomas – Net Names ($5 contact fee)
- Patrick Carleton – ElToro.com ($1 contact fee)
- Josh Metnick – ($100 contact fee)
- Ryan Colby – Outcome Brokerage ($5 contact fee)
- Eytan Elbaz ($20 contact fee)
If you don’t know any of these people but want to discuss something with them, Earn could be a good way to get in touch. The caveat is that most people who are interested in what you have to say will likely respond via email – even if it were unsolicited. For instance, if you want to buy a one word .com domain name for your startup and have a $250,000 budget, I am sure Andrew and Jen would respond to a cold email without you having to sign up for an account or pay!
This could be a good opportunity to ask someone a general question about the domain name industry or a specific domain name. It’s probably best to keep the question short to maximize the likelihood of getting a response.
