If you’re a domain investor, also known as a domainer, then today’s topic of choice is likely very trivial to you.
In fact, you may wonder why I would even take the time to write about such a trivial topic.
Whether you want to believe it or not, there are many professionals, business owners, and people in general that don’t know how to go about finding a domain owner and their contact information.
I receive a couple of emails a week from persons asking about how to find domain owner contact info. Continue reading
DNSeattle was everything it was billed to be and more.
The weather was perfect. The location and venue were great. There was a good selection of music, food, and beverage on hand.
And of course, there was not a shortage of domain hobbyists, investors, and professionals in attendance at Amazon’s campus (Terry Avenue) in downtown Seattle.
It’s quite popular, but posting domains with prices on Twitter might not be the smartest move for domain investors.
If you’ve been keeping up and watching the flurry of activity around @DomainKing’s Twitter posts, then you’ve likely been seeing a trove of domain listings.
It’s been entertaining to watch and learn at the expense of others. There’s nothing like learning from someone else’s downfall as well as their upside. Continue reading
You just received and negotiated a domain inquiry like a pro.
You’re giddy about your newly finalized agreement. The buyer is ready to pay for the domain, and you’re ready to accept payment quicker than quick.
Everyone is on the the same page. Now how do you go about receiving the buyers payment and transferring the domain name?
There are many payment options to accept a buyers payment.
Whether buying, selling, or leasing, you’re likely tempted to handle transactions with PayPal. Continue reading

I’ll start by asking a few questions, and then I’ll share a few thoughts with you.
If you knew then what you know now about your business, then would what you know change the outcome of how you operate your business?
If you could reduce, if not eliminate, marketing spend, would you do this for more customer growth and revenue?
Answering without a shadow of doubt, could the lessons learned propel your business towards generating greater customer growth and revenue?
Often times, life’s greatest lessons are seen with great clarity when looking back. We must learn to respect the past as the key to unlocking the doors to our present and, more importantly, our future.
Much can be found in the past. Sometimes we find subtleties of truth, yet other times the glaring truth of mistakes stare a hole through us.
To say the least, the concept of setting aside one’s personal agenda for a greater cause can be challenging, especially in terms of a business that took the blood, sweat, and tears of leaders and visionaries to launch and claw their way to making the impossible possible.
And the truth be told for certain businesses today, countless numbers are missing potential customers at this very moment.

Are you ready? Let’s get started…
I know the entire story about rising advertising costs as I’m sure your wallet has felt the impact too! No matter if you’re a local, regional, national or global business, search marketing is quite competitive and expensive.
Why is search marketing so expensive?
Let’s think about this and walk through the spend. The masses are blindly paying for pay-per-click advertising with YellowPages, Google, Facebook, Twitter, Bing, Yelp, Yodle, and other 3rd-party advertisers.
Then there are companies, and this may include your company too, paying substantial fees on a monthly basis for search engine optimization.
That’s just online marketing spend. We’ve not mentioned offline advertising such as billboards, radio ads, door hangers, classifieds, newspapers, magazines and television ads.
There are so many businesses competing to be at the most visible spot of the hottest and most visited media known in the world. The sheer number of companies competing is growing daily due to new businesses launching throughout the world.
And time is of the essence as no business can afford to wait for months and years to grow their business.
To answer the original question of why search marketing is so expensive, I have businesses look at one thing: their domain name. Continue reading
