Blast from the past : Million dollar #domainer interview from TRAFFIC 2007 in #Miami


Ah, those were the days of shrimp buffet luncheons, domain arbitrage specials, and multi-million dollar auctions.

TRAFFIC 2007 in Miami, Florida, included domain entrepreneur, Mickie Kennedy.

The enterprising domainer was running eStartup.com back in the day and at the TRAFFIC domain auction he listed PressReleases.com with a $2.6 million dollar reserve.

Phil Craig from DomainsIntoDollars.com interviewed Mickie Kennedy; at the time of the interview, PressReleases.com was already an actual business making $1.2 million annually.

The domain name is still owned by Mickie Kennedy, although it’s been forwarded to eReleases.com.

Mickie Kennedy started the company 20 years ago after working in a PR environment that was not meeting the needs of small- and medium-sized businesses and firms. He struck out on his own to build a company that would give smaller firms access to the newswire – with a personal touch.

Enjoy this fun domainer interview from 11 years ago! πŸ˜€

    Interesting but seems like he’s doing just fine with eReleases. Once a millionaire domainer, always a millionaire domainer?

  2. DomainGang says:

    Mika – The business became successful on PressReleases.com and it’s definitely a valuable generic.

  3. The good old days of domaining when it was exciting.
