    Lapland.com (www.Lapland.com)

    From a few emails to targetted companies in google, I got one person interested in buying an advertising slot for $500 over the christmas period, and one person interested in actually leasing the name on a long term basis.

    The site was opened two weeks before Christmas, and from then to christmas day, without any promotion, the site received on average 250 uniques a day, and over 500 letters to santa from children.

    Obviously this site has large potential for two main regions.

    Firstly, the domain market seems to be big into regional/country names at the minute. eg. $700k offer for Glasgow.com, $500k NewZealand.com sale, $10M SouthAfrica.com offer. And as Lapland is one of, if now the largest tourist attraction in Finland, this obviously holds gerat value.

    Also, it is associated with the biggest buying period of the year - Christmas. This will allow for great advertising rates.

    Absolutely great flash design in place, and still being developed - cost a lot !(4 figures). The latest version is at www.lapland.com/santa.html.

    Looking for offers in the region of $9k USD for both the name and site.

    Buyit now for $9k USD.

    Feel free to post any questions, email me at john.quail[AT]ntlworld.com or pm me.

    New high offer of $3,000 USD via PM. Also a couple of trade offers, but I would prefer a cash (or mainly cash offer).

    My costs for the domain and site are running at about $4.75k at the minute, and I would prefer to keep the site than sell it for a loss.

    Dont forget that Lapland holidays can run over $1600 per person or a four day tour.

    eg. At random google listing (santa.fi) it is £1135 for a 4 day tour (over $2,000 USD)

    In addition to this fact, many people sending emails from the site has expressed their interest in a holiday to Lapland, or mention previous holidays!

    I've had a couple of other offers, the highest so far being $4k, however my costs are slightly higher than that, so it is not sold as of yet.

    The BuyIt Now price is now only $6k.

    This is a MUST SEE site!
