Was Income.com Sold by Sedo Today?


SedoA few weeks ago, I learned that Income.com, a domain name owned by Internet entrepreneur and marketing guru John Reese, had been put up for sale and was being marketed by Sedo domain broker, Dave Evanson. According to a post on the Wicked Fire forum, Reese sent an email stating that Sedo “listed it at  $1MM but think they can sell it for more.”

I have been monitoring the Whois for this domain name, and I just noticed a change in the registration this evening. Sedo is now shown as the domain registrant, which generally happens only after a sale has been consummated.

I can’t confirm that the domain name has in fact been sold, but it does appear that way to me. I have reached out to Evanson for more information, and I will post an update as soon as I hear back.

If Evanson did help sell the domain name, this would be his second huge sale in Q4, as he was the broker on the $750,000 Ringtones.com sale earlier this month.

    Another biggie… Sedo is in a whole different league than everybody else 🙂

    Yes, it does seem like Sedo is dominating. I would prefer two or three major players.

    Sounds like John has a few good ones in his collection. Never hear much about his domains but just the AM side of his business.
    Last email I read of his was that he was selling everything up and going backpacking around the world for a few years.

    I think he also owns Opportunity.com.

    I hope that the sale goes through for everybody and I look forward to hearing the details. Kudos to Dave if he pulled off another major sale.

    Who exactly is the Sedo broker contacting on behalf of the client?

    Does he actively contact fortune 500 companies and the like and pitch the name, or is he there merely to respond to inquiries?

    I’m not minimizing his role, I’m just curious how one goes about brokering a super premium name like this

    @AB Good question. I have a super premium name and have talked to several well known domain brokers, and none have been able to articulate a marketing/selling strategy that would extract maximum value with an end-user sale.
