What are the first few things you do after you acquire the best domain name for any geographic city or area? That’s what I wanted to know when I decided to register for and attend the GeoPublishers.com Expo in Chicago, Illinios, which took place over the last two days.
Fred Mercaldo, president of GeoPublishers.com and publisher of over 60 geodomains including Scottsdale.com, did not disappoint with a comprehensive program including presentations from Ron Jackson, editor of DN Journal, Don Jones from NewOrleans.com, and the Castello Brothers (Michael and David) of CCIN.

Patrick Ruddell does not do anything halfway. His accomplishments are many, including real estate, domain names and a unique conference over the water.
But sometimes Chef Patrick’s enthusiasm misfires (i.e., Moniker-gate). In this show you will learn about both Chef Patrick’s successes and mistakes, including his latest acquisition, ScienceFiction.com, which he purchased for $175,000 in late 2010. You will also learn what Chef Patrick has in store for DN Cruise 2011, and whether the Chef really can cook.

Elliot Silver owns two companies and a lot of businesses, but he makes a majority of his revenue through domain name flipping. He constantly thinks of domain names to purchase and – when he decides he wants one – will almost always make an offer in his initial contact.
In this candid interview, Elliot shares a tremendous amount of information:
* How he discovers domains for purchase
* How he values domains
* Whether he “churns and burns” or tries to sell to an end-user
* How he finds end-users to contact
* How many domain name sales he focuses on at one time
* Why he uses both a written contract and escrow
* One $2,450 domain name investment gone bad and what he learned
And Elliot loves receiving reply emails from MAILER-DAEMON. Why? Opportunity. Listen to this interview to learn more.

How did Andrew Allemann go from a regular college student at The University of Texas at Austin to amassing 1,000 domains that earned him over $100,000 in profit every year? More importantly, how did he build it up his domain name portfolio in the first place? The short answer is by keeping abreast of technology trends and focusing on a triad of domain name monetization options: parking, affiliate programs and mini website developing.
