Skip Hoagland’s Expansion Plans

I received a press release from Skip Hoagland’s company today detailing their expansion plans. Hoagland’s companies own some of the best generic and geographic domain names, including,,,,…. and many, many more. While people like Skip have the best domain names to move forward with their plans, all of us can look at news releases like the ones below to see how we can emulate what Skip is doing, just on a smaller scale.

Congrats to Skip and his team on some big moves!

=== CEO Skip Hoagland announces the newest expansion plans for his company. Hoagland says we have been very busy these last two months finalizing our plans and new alliances for full development and management services of these very valuable brands for our company. We turned down many multi million dollar offers over the years and finally decided to launch them ourselves with companies we felt had the abilities to maximize the full potential of these leading brands for us, versus just selling out.,,, will be run by Patagonia Publishing and Media in Argentina. This company has built and manages some 50 Hunting and Fishing industry websites worldwide, as well as produces coffee table books for these huge enthusiast sports in Argentina, Mexico and working on others for Worldwide Destinations. CEO and President of PP Corp said they are very excited about this project and feel within two years they will be able to add enough content and resources to become the Amazon, Facebook, Ebay of these   sports and do so for every Country, State and city in the world. Our strength’s will include searchable databases for species of fish, guides, lodges, outfitters, ecommerce and much more. We will even tell you how to pack for the trip, what lures, rods and other equipment is best for these fish species and destinations. will be run by headed by CEO David Bayer. Bayer says will become a leading brand to come to for trusted information on some 7000 cities plus worldwide for our current database. { Convention And Visitors Bureaus} will also be incorporated for Travel and Tourism. Our plans in detail will be announced soon. We will focus heavily on the Geo Domain Industry in its entirety.

Hoagland ends in saying he has never understood why owners of great brands sell these very valuable industry assets versus trying to launch them with others. ,,,,,,   and many others like these have and will become huge multi million dollar companies as the Internet expands and these keywords become more and more important to these owners. The prices paid for these ranging from 1m to 8 million were real steals for the buyers that could afford to buy them. When the buyer of bought this name, they basically assured themselve protection from Wal-Mart and many others in the future for this product line. Enthusiast Magazine titles will also be hugely effected as they already are as sites like can provide global distribution,   Video, Radio, TV, information in different languages and instant up to date information, blogs, Social Networks, link to all advertisers websites and much more.

  1. Observing these stages of development is interesting and provides motivation to many, myself included. After building a complete content oriented site, then the sales team appears to be the next big push, i.e. selling ads to local businesses.
