NEW YORK, NY – Kim Komando, a syndicated radio host to over 435 radio stations in the United States and heard internationally in 177 different countries, is dubbed “America’s Digital Goddess”. Her weekly three-hour call-in show covers anything and everything ‘digital’ from tech-gadgets, websites, smartphone apps, and internet security.
According to the United States Patent and Trademark Office her company Komando Corporation and associated owned and operated radio network, WestStar Digital Audio Services, Inc., hold registered trademarks for “Digital Diva”, “Digital Goddess” and “America’s Digital Goddess”; she is certainly serious about branding herself.
Anyhow, on one of her latest shows which is posted online and dated October 26, 2018, Komando welcomed guests, timed and appropriately cut in with advanced audio effects to create the effect of a round-table to discuss domain names, how good domains are in very high demand, and how people are making “big money” buying and selling them.
If you are a new comer to domain names, it’s worth a listen as you might find out about some good tools mentioned on the show for discovering domains, pricing them, picking up expired ones as well as selling them. Stand-outs were Flippa, Godaddy, Estibot, discussions on its accuracy, and ExpiredDomains.net for catching dropped domains.
If you’re more experienced in the industry, if for nothing else, it’s worth a listen to see what new comers to the industry are hearing about domain names, domain investing, the industry and how ‘easy’ it is to get involved, with little to no startup capital at all; mentioned as “practically nothing” to get started. Vacant from the airwaves was that it’s become much more difficult over the years to be strictly a “domainer“. However, one of her guests did suggest doing it more as a ‘hobby’ and using ‘comparable sales’ rather than estimation tools, which I certainly agree makes much more sense.
At one point in the show, towards the end, Komando refers to this “web domain real estate market” as a “Racket” – that was sort of amusing. I’d recommend checking out this thirty-minute segment to hear her and her guests insight as well as her own experience purchasing domain names for a new podcast show she is working to create where she was hunting down and acquiring aftermarket domain names; one of which sounded like a real crapper name in my opinion. She said she paid about $6,000 for them; I’ll keep you in suspense and make you listen to the show to find out what they are; my hat-tip to the Phoenix, Arizona based Digital Diva®.
