- Celebs.com Announces Joint Venture Opportunity -
LOS ANGELES and ANNAPOLIS, Md., Jan. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Domains For Media (http://www.domainsformedia.com/), experts in domain name monetization, today announced at DOMAINfest Global in Los Angeles that it is seeking a joint venture partner to help it develop Celebs.com into a new media property. Viable partner candidates include those with proven success in domain or media development -- such as a major online or offline media company, studio, magazine, online portal or others wishing to enter the growing celebrity market. The ideal partner will be able to demonstrate a process it employed in a similar development project, and the ability to apply it to Celebs.com. Experience in the celebrity market, or a related one, is highly desirable.
"Celebs.com benefits from a large volume of natural daily traffic, and it is a highly brandable and easy to remember domain name," said Eric Rice, President and founder of Domains For Media, which recently completed an agreement to help develop domain properties Skateboards.com, Surfboards.com and Snowboards.com. "Celebs.com is arguably the best domain in the celebrity space. Celebrity properties represent a strong market opportunity right now. With the right partner, Celebs.com can be become a highly successful media venture. We have the right domain, and a new player can come in and compete immediately. A strong partner with the right resources is all that's needed to grow this niche domain."
The celebrity market is currently experiencing a lot of growth. Much of that growth is fueled by online entities that update celebrity content very quickly. TMZ.com and PerezHilton.com have become two of the biggest media properties on the web. After the most recent Britney Spears incident, PerezHilton.com reported it received over 10 million page views in just 24 hours. These web sites are generating revenues via advertising dollars from some of the largest niche brands in the world. Both are quickly becoming major media outlets.
The perfect partner for Celebs.com will likely have the resources to execute an entire business plan around developing this domain property. All aspects of the business will be the responsibility of the partner. Domains For Media plans to consider 4-5 partner proposals in the next 30 days and make a final decision by the end of February. While the preferred relationship is to partner with an experienced company on this project, an outright sale of the domain name will also be considered.
Potential partners interested in working with Domains For Media.com should call 443-421-0000 or send email to to better understand the parameters for submitting a proposal.
