The rest of the Summer is going to be a blur. I have a bunch of things scheduled, so I might not respond to emails as quickly as usual. One of the downsides of my business is that I am almost always working while traveling, but I suppose it’s this business that lets me travel. Double edged sword I suppose.
I shared some thoughts and updates below. You are welcome to share your business thoughts and updates, too.
Interested in a job opportunity working with the new gTLD domain names? Rightside his hiring a Senior Manager, Channel Marketing in its Kirkland, Washington office. Here’s a brief excerpt from the job listing, “As a key member of the Marketing team, the Senior Manager, Channel Marketing helps our domain name registry team (i.e. Rightside Registry) globally launch and sell an impressive portfolio of new, top level domains through our channel of registrars and resellers.”
I am always intrigued when I read tweets like this one from Sahar Sarid and the comments that followed on the original Facebook post. Sometimes, I am able to figure out what domain names sold, but when I can’t, I am very curious!
The Boston domain investor meetup is happening on Wednesday July 15 at Bill’s Bar at 5pm. It should be a pretty good crowd.
I understand Media Options has come to terms with buyers on 3 LL.com domain names in the last couple of weeks. Two were brokered and one was from his company’s inventory.
When you have a chance, you should read this great legal article regarding descriptive domain names and trademark holders using UDRP and the legal system to try and acquire domain names.
I am thinking about attending DomainFest in Macau in September. Are you planning to attend? It is being held at the Grand Hyatt Macau September 4-7.
If you have one word .com domain names for sale, let me know! I am still buying great names. Don’t waste your time (or mine) sending made up words or words that aren’t commonly spoken. If you or I need a dictionary to confirm that the word is real, please don’t send it! I am only buying legitimately valuable domain names. If you feel the need to explain what it means or why it is worth anything, I can almost promise you I won’t buy it. Here are some of my current holdings and a few of my company’s sales (all were owned by my company) as reference points of what I buy.
