DomainingTips.com Has Been Bought by Billion Dollar Media

Posted on 22 October 2009 by Andrei

No need to waste valuable time, I’ll get straight to the point: my name is Andrei and I’m currently in charge of running things over at Billion Dollar Media, the company which bought DomainingTips.com. Interested in finding out what I’m putting on the table as a blogger? Read on and you won’t regret it, scout’s honor.

A Little Bit about Myself

I’m a former “unconventional marketer” who used to make money exclusively by gaming systems (social media websites, for example) and has “turned legit”. I’m sure that my perspective on the industry will help a lot of you guys make considerably more money for one simple reason: I see things from a totally different angle.

Let me put it this way: I’ve always earned a living by thinking outside the box. While it’s true that I’m focusing on long-term projects at this point, that doesn’t change the fact that originality is my #1 quality.

Wait a Second, “Unconventional Marketer”? Waddaya Mean?

If you’re associating the idea of “unconventional marketing” with fraud or something like that, breathe in and relax. No, that’s not what it’s all about. Not by a long shot. Unconventional marketing = making money by doing things differently.

Put me in front of a system (for example, a popular social media website) and I’ll show you how to game it for free (or extremely cheap) traffic. It doesn’t stop here, my approach to unconventional marketing is also extremely unique.

”Say what? A unique approach to unconventional marketing? Huh?”

OK, I probably lost you there, let me explain. As you’ll be able to find out yourself, I always (and I mean always) do things differently and not only when generating traffic.

For example, even though I’ve made money through let’s call them “innovative” methods, I have strict guidelines when it comes to the products I push. I always draw the line when it comes to people’s health. I don’t push pills, I don’t push supplements. If you can eat it, inhale it or apply it on your skin, I won’t push it. Never EVER.

I don’t see anything wrong with gaming a system, it’s a perfectly natural cat & mouse game. On the other hand, I’m extremely paranoid when it comes to people’s health. Some people understand the way I see things, others don’t. Either way, I don’t care. I don’t tell you how to run your business, don’t tell me how to run mine.

Another unique thing about me is that I’m as close as to being a “traditional businessman” as people who (used to) game systems for a living get. At this point, you probably think that I’m some kind of a brilliant coder who believes in automating everything. NOPE!

I couldn’t code to save my life and I generally don’t use software a lot. I believe in hiring people. Lots of people. Lots and lots of people. I have an idea, send a few emails and others execute. It’s a simple and effective approach which works.

Do you see those 3 sidebar ads which link to BillionDollarMedia.com? Well, guess what: if there’s something you need (articles? logos? SEO services? not a problem!), just say the word and Billion Dollar Media will make things happen. Don’t take my word for it, there are TONS of testimonials you can analyze: real testimonials written by real people on a 3rd party website (the Web’s #1 affiliate marketing forum, ’nuff said).

Cheaper + Better = Billion Dollar Media

Alright, so enough about my background. Let’s move on to a question I’m sure most of you are asking yourselves right now:

Are You a Domainer?

Yes and no. As I’ve mentioned previously, I USED to earn a living via unconventional marketing. At a certain point though, I had enough of short-term projects and wanted more. I got in touch with certain people, we exchanged ideas and here I am.

My long-term projects all have the concept of building businesses on premium Web properties as a foundation. As you’ll be able to find out, I own a lot of great domains (no LLLL dot coms, no dot mobis and the list could go on and on). Some of them are easily worth 5-6 figures on the reseller market. Don’t take my word for it, stick around and see for yourself. Actually, allow me to answer the most important question people should be asking themselves after visiting this blog for the first time:

Why Should I Bookmark It or Subscribe?

Two words: case studies. I put my money where my mouth is and am not afraid to document every step of my journey. You’ll see me establish partnerships, you’ll see me launch businesses. Sooner than you think, a lot sooner!

And by businesses, I mean more than just a few pages with some ads on them. Let’s cut the bs and actually understand that things have changed. It’s not 2001 anymore, you need to actually provide value to people if you’re interested in making some serious long-term cash. Can you make money through minisites? Yes, but why make your life a lot harder than it has to be? Seriously, with so many possibilities out there, why focus on a business model that’s fragile to say the least?

We need to analyze things from the consumer’s perspective. While, as domainers or developers, we might see that fact that things have gotten a lot more complicated as something bad, it really isn’t in the grand scheme of things. The Web is getting bigger and bigger, better and better. As a result, the average visitor is happier and happier. And, might I add, more and more willing to buy things online. From you, from me, from us. See what I mean?

For example, I’ll be launching a project which involves domains that are EASILY worth 6 figures together on the reseller market in a month a two. A project which involves MY OWN PRODUCT (not related in any way to domaining or making money online).

“Your Own Product?”

YES!

You see, I’m sick and tired of being afraid that company A or company B will ban me or otherwise pull the plug. Believe me, after gaming my share of systems, I’ve had enough. I want complete control over my business and having my own product definitely helps.

Again, I believe in putting my money where my mouth is. Stick around, bookmark the blog and you’ll find out yourself. I’ll be documenting every step of my journey and will let Billion Dollar Media’s results do all of the talking.

Will I be selling domains? Yep, stick around and you’ll see which. Maybe I’ll fail miserably, maybe I’ll succeed. Either way, you’ll find out.

Will I be selling websites? Again, yes!

Will I blog about all of my projects? I sure will, expect full disclosure!

A Short Recap: Why You Should Bookmark DomainingTips.com or Subscribe… NOW

If you’re interested in a unique perspective, a no bs approach to domaining as well as development (real development, not just a bunch of sites which don’t provide value) and tons of case studies, there’s no time like the present to bookmark DomainingTips.com or subscribe.

Expect FULL DISCLOSURE! No fluff, no “buying good domains is good, buying awful domains is bad” stating-the-obvious-ish advice. I’m not here to waste your time or insult your intelligence, let’s make some money!

  3. Nick Says:

    This guy knows what he’s talking about! I bought services from him in the past (we frequent the same forum, he has been offering services there for a long time) and there’s no beating him. Others charge a fortune while he’s charging peanuts and still does a better job. These services are an asset to any site owner, you heard it here first.

  4. Jamie Parks Says:

    Welcome aboard Andrei. Interesting story. Great domain name. Looks like you need to update you published by settings and remove Lord Brar’s name. BTW, I have twitter.com/domainingtips – Interested?

  5. KD Says:

  6. Andrei Says:

    @ Nick: hey man, long time no see 😀

    Oh and Jamie, I used to be a twitter fan back in the day but decided to pull the plug. Huuuuuge timewaster, good riddance! I’ve got so much stuff going on these days that I just want to stay far FAR away from anything which even resembles a computer screen whenever I have some free time.

  7. nmwando Says:

    I want to vouch for Andrei as well, we’ve met a few months ago on the forum Nick mentioned and I’ve been ordering from him nonstop ever since.

  8. Shay Says:

    Hey Andrei, whatta an entrance! I like your style already. Oozing confidence to say the least and very intriguing too. Interested to see what you have in store.

    Site bookmarked 😉 best of luck.

  9. Patrick McDermott Says:

    Promises. Promises.

    Just kidding, Andrei. 🙂

    As others have said, you’ve made a nice entrance and I too look
    forward to your “unconventional”,”thinking outside the box”
    domaining blog.

    By the way, if you have a spare $3 milliom lying around you can
    shorten your domain name 4 notches and buy Domaining.com.

    It’s For Sale.

    Hi Andrei,

    I like your style and everything you say makes sence. I will be subscribing to your blog.
    By the way I own about 100 names with IQ at the end such as toolsiq.com
    russiaiq.com 401kiq.com annuities.com boatsiq.com beachiq.com cardsiq.com giniq.com this is a sampleing and I plan to build websites
    with these names this winter. I would love to hear your thoughts about my plans.
    By the way guess who owns capitaliq.com none other than Standard and Poors a big financial institution. The IQ at the end of a name is being used more and more.
    Love to hear your comments.

    Best regards,
    Richard St Cyr

  11. Andrei Says:

    @ nmwando: thanks for dropping by, we have some serious catching up to do 😉

    @ Shay, Patrick and Richard: thanks a lot for commenting, looking forward to seeing you around a lot 😀

    Richard, there are a lot of people who have managed to create profitable networks of sites with a business model similar to yours. The domains themselves carry no standalone value, so it’s up to you at this point: it all depends on how hard and smart you work. There’s more than one way to skin a cat, hope everything works out for ya.

  12. Best CPA Networks Says:

    Most internet marketers who are having success these days are using Cost Per Action, or CPA ads. This is because marketers don’t need to complete high cost sales in order to get credited for a conversion.

  13. David Hasselhof Says:

    Great job over again. I am looking forward for your next post:)

  14. mcafee security scan plus Says:

    Thanks for another fantastic article. Where else could anyone get that type of information in such a perfect way of writing? I have a presentation next week, and I’m on the look for such info.
