Rev.com Was Reportedly Acquired for $400,000

Sean Markey tweeted a link to the My First Million podcast interview featuring Rev.com founder Jason Chicola. In the podcast, there was a discussion about the brand naming process and how the company ended up buying Rev.com for a reported $400,000:

It was really fascinating to hear about the thought process that went into choosing this brand name and the high level overview about how it ended up acquiring Rev.com. The founder also mentioned that the company spent $400,000 to buy the domain name. It is not often we get to hear from an end user buyer on how they landed on a specific domain name, and this was a neat story.

The discussion about the evolution of Rev.com’s brand name and domain name acquisition start at about the 41:30 minute mark of the interview.

Thanks to Sean Markey for sharing.
