On March 10, 2010 at New York City’s Marriott Marquis, the Learning Annex will be hosting its Internet Expo, billed as the “Shortcut To Internet Riches!” As part of the full day session, you will have a chance to learn from one of the most well known domain investors, Marc Ostrofsky,.
As you may know, Ostrofsky was one of the founders of Internet Reit, a large domain investment company in Texas. On the Expo’s page Ostrofsky session is described as follows:
The easiest way to earn a dollar online is simply buying and selling domains. And that’s exactly what Marc Ostrofsky does as the president of Internet REIT, which currently holds approximately 400,000 domains. Find out how he does it… how he sold business.com for a world record $7.5 million…and how can you do the same.
There are a total of 25 Internet experts who will be participating/leading the seminar during the day. Topics include building a business online, growing a business online, Internet marketing, SEO strategy, the domain session, and many other topics.
The cost of a full day pass is $99.95, and it begins at 9am. I am not attending the conference, but found it interesting that the topic of domain names is being covered as an investment tool rather than as a SEO/business development strategy, which may be more appropriate.
Sounds like a bargain at $99.95. What are they trying to up sell ?
Having a memorable domain name is crucial. A company with existing web sites or new company start up could use a .Tel to be branded and remembered by. As the company grows and adds web sites affiliates and so on the memorable .Tel would be a great gateway to the company’s links, contacts, customer service and so on.
Going to this, but worried because newspaper had coupons where it cost me 1 dollar to attend. Imagine they are using this to earn money through sales of product, not ticket sales. Feel sorry for those who spent 99 dollars more than I did.
