In case you haven’t heard my partners and I are opening up not only a domain brokerage, not only a marketplace on Stud.com but we have added some secret sauces that’s going to blow the doors off of the industry and open us up to the world.

Stud.com was born on July 1 via a Twitter post and for the last 100 days or so we have been working night and day to bring Stud.com online.

The domain marketplace is about 1/3 of what stud.com is going to be about.

In the weeks ahead we will unveil version 1.0 of STUD. But we won’t stop there. We have big plans for expansion as we add these new features.

NoLowballers.com is expiring today. Perhaps that would be a more accurate name for his new project? Seems like the project is only for domainers who are wealthy already, have ultra premiums, and can sit for years or decades on a domain and not accept anything less than a shoot-the-moon price for their domain/s... doesn't look like a platform for most of us, IMO.

Love know more about this "breeding" process. Sounds like fun. Rick surely isn't "horsing" around. He's a real "thoroughbred" when it comes to domain selling with no "handicaps". If you wan to "Win", go to Rick's "Place" and "Show" your best domain.

Always go with a "triple crown" winner. lol

not to worry. I'm working on a "for most of us" platform for those in the "cheap seats".

That would make me feel bad that I didn't have the foresight to hold onto them :(

I follow Rick on Twitter, but don't use Clubhouse.

So I take it that it will be by subscription? Has he indicated what that will be? Will it be strictly subscription, or a combination subscription plus commission?

I take it he is setting some minimum selling price for any names accepted?

He says that it is a brokerage, but much more than that. Has he specified what is meant by more?

Thanks for any information from those who attend the clubhouse sessions.

Bob

I don’t get the business plan.

Attempting to inflate prices for domains x50 than what they are now and charging domainers thousands to join, why would this be appealing for both investors and potential end-users? End-users will just go for the 2nd option, as for investors why would domainers go anywhere near it when (as said) the platform is going to cost thousands to join and when there’s fantastic brokers out there who don’t charge anything and only a fee upon a successful sale?

Good luck to him, but I’ve never heard of a new business venture saying they are going to charge partners and customers a fortune say and expect people to be excited by that, if it went on Dragon’s Den it wouldn’t get very far.

just imagine if zuckerberg went on dragons den in 2004 and was asked where do you see this business in 5 years time?

and what if zuckerberg said well ll be the 5th richest person on the planet in 17 years time lol which he is
