Elliot’s Blog is written by Elliot J. Silver, an Internet entrepreneur and professional domain investor. Elliot has spoken on a number of conference panels and has been cited as a domain industry expert in a variety of publications.
Elliot founded his first domain investment and monetization company, Top Notch Domains, LLC, in 2003, while in graduate school at New York University (MS in Direct and Interactive Marketing). The company is based in New Hampshire but operates in New York City.
Shortly after earning his degree, Elliot went to work as a Project Manager at Wunderman, one of the largest direct marketing agencies in the world. Later, he was hired as a direct marketing Program Manager at AIG, where his focus was direct mail and telemarketing campaign management. After working in these corporate marketing jobs for four years, Elliot decided the time was right for him to focus entirely on his domain investment business in 2007.
Top Notch Domains, LLC currently owns a portfolio of descriptive domain names and websites, including DogWalker.com, Torah.com, DogGroomers.com, BabyRegistries.com, BrandManagement.com, SHS.com, ContactManagement.com, this blog, and many others. You can also see a selection of sales and current projects on which the company is working.

In 2010, Elliot was honored with a TRAFFIC Award for Best Domain Blog, and he was nominated for two TRAFFIC Awards in 2011 and a TRAFFIC Award in 2012 for Best Domain Blog.
