    Michigan-based Reink Media Group may be familiar to you as the company that purchased StockBrokers.com for $185,000 in 2011. In a 2015 interview, managing partner Blain Reinkensmeyer told us his reasoning for acquiring the name. This year, Reink Media Group added to their portfolio of premium names by acquiring Investor.com.

    In this interview, Blain gives us a fascinating insight into the acquisition of Investor.com. According to DomainIQ’s WHOIS history, the domain was acquired from Microsoft’s portfolio, although Blain was unable to confirm this due to a non-disclosure agreement.


    Can you tell us about the business you’ve created around the Investor.com domain name?


    Is this a domain name that you sought out, or was it brought to you?

    The seller of Investor.com looks to have been Microsoft. Was it a complicated process to acquire the name from such a big company?


    How long did the process take from initial discussions to closing the deal?


    Would you have considered paying more for the domain than you did?


    Did you use any tools, services, or data to determine your budget for the acquisition of investor.com?


    If Investor.com wasn’t a viable acquisition, did you have a list of alternative names to use for this project?


    Has there been any client feedback on the domain name? Has it been positive?


    Do you think this venture would have been as successful on a different domain?

    Thanks to Blain for taking part in this Inside Interview, allowing us to get an insight into the acquisition of an ultra-premium .COM domain.
