This Week’s DomainSherpa Interview
- VIDEO: StockPhoto.com: Pre-paying $250,000 for a Lifetime of Customer Traffic – With Jon Yau
Instead of hand registering a $9 brandable domain name like ShutterStock.com or iStockPhoto.com and paying for CPC marketing forever, Jon Yau plunked down $250,000 of his family’s savings to purchase StockPhoto.com – a domain name with 50,000 worldwide exact-match searches per month.
Yau considers this investment a “pre-payment” for the endless stream of potential customers that visit his website daily through direct navigation. And with plans to continue to grow his photography database, he expects only to increase his customer conversion rate and revenue.

- DomainSherpa Review, Sherpa Challenge – Jan 30, 2014
In this show:
* “The Sherpa Challenge” is accepted — four Sherpas show what domain names they’ve hand registered, drop caught and purchased
* 20 nice domains going to auction at NameJet soon are evaluated
* “Registered or Available” game — see who won today’s competition
This is the show where we get into the minds of successful domain name investors and talk about the value of specific domain names. By listening to the Sherpas, we expand our thought process so we can become more successful investors ourselves.
We’re joined by four Domain Sherpas: Adam Dicker, Michael Berkens, Page Howe and Rick Schwartz.
