Rick Schwartz sent out an email this morning to let people know that his recently launched JointVentures.com is looking for domain name submissions. Joint ventures, leasing, and other similar types of deals have become more popular in the domain business over the last few years due to economic conditions.
I think these types of deals are great for a variety of reasons, and Rick has parlayed his experience with these types of ventures into a new venture that allows other domain owners to partake.
The full email from Rick is below, and if you have domain names that meet the quality standards identified by Rick, you might want to consider this opportunity.
The all new redesigned JointVentures.com is open and we are ready for your listings. We are looking for one word category defining domain names that you are ready and willing to lease and do Candy.com type deals with lots of moving parts and a lifetime of upside potential.
Over the past 30 days on my blog I have described in great detail what we are doing. Why we are doing it. What exactly I see at this point in time that makes this viable.
Now leasing is nothing new. But the market is evolving in a way that makes it more palatable and in many cases will lead to a sale. It’s a simple premise. I believe leasing a domain for $5000/month is an easier climb than selling an asset for $3.5MM.
What I am asking of you is to help me make this a successful effort by helping to arm me with YOUR domains. YOU have some of the most valuable names on the web and all I am asking is for your permission to list and do what I do. You don’t have to send traffic, you don’t have to change a thing you are doing with your domain. Just give me permission to list your category defining domain name. Just 1 or 2. And allow me to take whatever your earnings are and transform them into a more meaningful revenue stream with long term rewards and dividends,
YOU set the field for the terms and I will go out and negotiate on your behalf. Like I said, nothing you can’t do yourself, but I have a few tricks up my sleeve that can help make it a reality.
Look, you have had these assets for many years. Some domains you have make 30 cents a day or $3 a day or $30 a day that should be making hundreds a day or even thousands. Let me unlock the true value and then share in your upside.
This is a simple concept. Not new. Around for 1000 years. But it took me all these posts below PLUS our new JointVentures.com website geared to end users to explain all the reasons and benefits and why it will work NOW and in the future and not so easy before.
Candy.com and Property.com are my blueprints. I have never actually shared those blueprints that cost me in excess of $125,000 to hammer out and another $100,000 on others. Plus countless hours structuring these deals. All designed to NEVER lose the domain name. NEVER have it in jeopardy. ALWAYS to have the domain in the control of the owner unless both parties agree on an escrow agent such as Escrow.com. And that each party is a winner!
Now I don’t expect you to read all those blog posts below. But they are there and they articulate many different views and ways to look at this and I am not known as one that undervalues unique assets. Haven’t your incomes been hammered hard enough? How about giving me, the team I have assembled and our idea of how to engage the end user a chance to change your destiny, our destiny and the destiny of this industry.
We won’t be marketing to domainers and our efforts will be largely invisible to you with the exception of the increase in number of emails you receive about that specific domain from those trying to skirt around us.
It’s the season to shake the bushes. So go through your lists. Find a couple domains that have traffic and you shake your head about that nobody has bought and you don’t make the dollars you should. It’s your destiny and this is the way to grab it back from others!
And another chapter begins. The final chapter and the gateway to unlocking the true potential of your BEST domain names.
Thanks for your time! Now send me your domains.
Rick Schwartz for the entire team at JointVentures.com
