eRealEstate.com. This was my first official site on domain names. Most of the thoughts expressed there were written back in the late 1990s. I have only updated certain obvious things.
I have two versions of the same site. The first was written before anyone took domains and online seriously. The second version was a Paris early flash presentation. Enjoy!
Then there is Rick's Blog. I blogged for 10 years before the term even became common. This is a collection 1325 posts of all the thoughts I can remember, from day one. You can read the way I think about life and business, about my principles, and about the way I roll – good, bad and ugly.
Those are all my words.
Then, if you do a Google search, you'll see the words from others. Search "Rick Schwartz".
I simply saw something that few saw, and I saw it early on. When I saw it, I applied it to the business world. I came up with a collection, a portfolio, an empire of about 6,500 domain names.
Domain names were so important to me, I even financed and produced the industry's first and leading tradeshow for 10 years. We held 28 conventions on four continents, plus multiple shows in New York City, Las Vegas, Miami, Orlando, Silicon Valley, and many other locales.
Many of the domain names I have are category killer domain names. Many earn ad revenue – about $30 million to date for the type-in traffic coming to the domains I own. And, that is why I've never been anxious to sell my assets, but I am very interested in folks with bigger ideas. I am interested in people who want to accomplish bigger and greater things in life, who think big. I saw a magazine ad about a month ago that read, "If you're going to think, anyway, you may as well think big."
Almost all these domains were registered to give a leg up to any business that wanted a superior location online, with an easy-to-spell, easy-to-remember web address. These are domain names that can take advantage of word-of-mouth advertising, which is still the greatest advertising, ever, known to mankind! It may be ignored today, but it certainly isn't a small piece of the puzzle. These are domain names that easily pass the radio test. They put wind at the backs of business, making their future business better.
Isn't that better than the wind in your face?
Today, your website is the lifeline of your business. It is more important than any single other asset you and your business can own. It's really where people find the information, and make decisions, about you and your product. The phone line, the chat plugins, SMS and text, email and social media: All of these things go toward supporting your website today, your own sales channel.
I have some of the most powerful and important web addresses in the entire world.
They are right here, available to you, right now.
Just remember one thing: The power of a domain name is limitless. It is bigger than the biggest mall; bigger than the biggest factory; bigger than the biggest country. It's as big as your idea.
The following lists are representative of those domains that get the most sales inquiries, although they represent only a sampling of the domains available for partnership.
By reviewing the list of adult domains, you are certifying you are 21 years of age or older.
My domains range from very affordable to those worth hundreds of thousands, to many worth millions. Think about this: What's the cost of the Sears store?
