June 18, 2008Annapolis, MD DomainsForMedia (, experts in domain name monetization, leasing and sales, today announced that its founder, Eric Rice, formerly General Manager of, will produce a blog and domain sales newsletter at to promote the sale of domains from his personal portfolio and those from other domain sellers.  The blog will feature satirical cartoons about the domain industry, while the newsletter will showcase domains for sale at reasonable prices.  Readers can submit cartoon concepts for to consider producing.  Those cartoon concepts produced and published will feature the reader’s web site and marketing message.  Sellers may submit domains to be considered for inclusion in the newsletter.

DomainsForMedia believes that at times domain sellers might be better served by direct selling methods rather than auctions or a listing on a domain mass listing web site.  In some live auctions the “bid up” promised never materializes.  As a result, many domains only have one bidder and often go for the reserve price.  Some domain listing web sites have become unwieldy, with millions of domains listed.  Many sellers on such sites are too focused on selling names at unrealistically high prices for today’s market.  In the domain sales newsletter, a seller will set a fair and reasonable price and benefit from having their domain promoted to over 2,000 (and growing) of the world’s top domain buyers.

In the next few months the newsletter’s readership is expected to grow to 4,000 subscribers through a variety of marketing efforts.  Those who sign up at will receive the free newsletter and gain the inside track on domains for sale.

“Our goal is to promote domains that are truly priced right, or even a little under for the market, so they will sell.  We anticipate generating a higher sell through ratio than other selling platforms,” states Rice.  “The concept of featuring cartoons and humor on our blog will make it fun for readers and help us to expand our already robust email list of 2,000 domain buyers.  Sellers will appreciate the added value we will offer from our growing list of qualified and active buyers.”

In 2007, Rice brokered over $4 million dollars worth of single domains, domain portfolios and web sites.  Many of these deals were completed in non-disclosed transactions that were never posted on industry sales tracking website.  Rice’s success demonstrates that small domain brokers do play a significant role in the growing domain aftermarket.

In related news, today also announced that it has secured another $2 million dollars to buy domains and domain portfolios.  In 2007, purchased names such as, and in partnership with Mike Mann ( ) and WashingtonVC (  These domains are currently under development.  Future purchases will be of the same caliber; high potential generic domains, traffic generating domains and miscellaneous domains with resell potential.
