The Launch of Cities.cc. What We Do, and Why It Is Necessary
My initial purchase of Scottsdale.com in 2006 started my lucrative journey into the world of geo domains. Having the pure City(dot)com brand name provided some incredible benefits; all of which still remain 12 years later. The respect that the local, and national marketplace, gives to a pure City brand is exceptional. Natural type in traffic, credibility and authority status, and the acceptance that the brand name is the “digital billboard to the world” for ALL things related to the specific City is incomparable in each geographic area.
In 2018, many people still struggle to understand that individuals and companies can own and successfully develop and monetize a pure City brand with the .com extension. In fact, while there have been many sales of pure City brands from the low 7 figures to a high of over $90,000,000, they overall remain an incredible bargain.
Cities.cc is a domain brokerage site, dealing specifically with geo domains. Cities, regions, counties, states, countries and more will be listed and promoted; we already have over 400 names available, with prices ranging from a low of $2,500 to a high of $4,000,000!
We will also be publishing numerous articles each month on the development and monetization strategies that are required in order to manage a successful and profitable City portal. As digital marketing and the internet itself appears to reinvent themselves seemingly every month, there are specific functions and services that are timeless and required for a City site to be relevant. There are also “best in class” partnerships, marketing strategies, and other methods from which to generate revenue. We will discuss all of them.
We felt that it was necessary for a domain brokerage that specifically deals with the geo space to be created for numerous reasons. First, it is a very specialized market. While the top domain brokers around the world are a very creative and diligent group, they have not been as keen on representing the sale of City names. Top generic domain names have worldwide allure and potential buyers; City names, in particular small to medium size cities, have a smaller potential buyer pool. We felt it necessary to fill a void in the domain marketplace by specializing ONLY in the geo market. It is what we know best, and we have much to offer.
We look forward to serving the needs of this marketplace, and look forward to your comments, observations, and suggestions. Feel free to contact me at Fred@Scottsdale.com. Thank you!
