Eva Longoria, speaking on stage at the Democrats Convention, just told a story about her friend Amanda who tried buying a domain name from a person with the same first and last name. The website was not in use so her friend Amanda contacted this person. The person who owned the domain name was a 13 year old girl who said she can't sell it to Eva's friend because she needs her .com name because she wants to be President of the United States someday!!!
It gave me chills! That 45 second story had a pretty large audience.
Each week I see all types of companies announcing their domain sales for the week. It's the new big thing. So I wanted to get on the bandwagon. I was going to announce it each week as well but decided not to.
So the following is my total sales for 2012 through August 31, 2012.
I don't sell my domains. I lease them, do joint ventures, experiment and so on. The only way I sell a domain is when the offer is greater than my best idea. Where the number is higher than I can achieve myself in time. Or I just let the domains drop because it does not make my portfolio stronger and I don't have the time or desire to try and sell domains I perceive of having no real value. I don't sell Pigeon Shit to others. Once I label it as pigeon shit, in the garbage it goes. If somebody wants to eat my pigeon shit......that's why they have pigeons. I just don't make a living feeding those pigeons. ;-)
I like to sell ONE domain per year. ONE! That is my goal each year. ONE! One 6 figure or more domain sale.
Have a GREAT Day!
We are 30 days out from the show. We have 100 more room nights sold this year compared to 30 days before last years show. So there is no question our group will OWN the hotel. Just a matter if you pay $265/night or MUCH MORE on Monday!
If you need to cancel, DO NOT cancel with reservations as they will just put it back in inventory at 2x the price. Please contact me as we NEED your rooms! Please.
These numbers are from yesterday afternoon. If you are having a problem or the days say 'SOLD OUT', contact me and I will see what I can do. Oceanfront rooms are all sold out. There may be ONE Oceanfront Suite left. There are still a handful of 'Ocean View Rooms'.
Friday October 5th.....Just 2 rooms left and we can't get anymore! (We do have 1 staff room as well)
Saturday October 6th.....We added their last 20 rooms to the 7 we had left late last week and now are only 5 available! Remember we only started with 25 rooms for Saturday Night pre-show and are now at nearly 100. The cabana networking is PRICELESS. Most pay for their entire trip BEFORE the show even starts!

If you want to see how fast these rooms are going, just refer to this post from Saturday. All I can do is urge you to make your reservation even before you buy your show tickets.
