Less Than 3 Weeks After Buying Bouquet.com Bill McClure Has a Site Up and an Affiliate Program in Place! Plus Bree CD Released & Goldberger Movie Hits YouTube

Less than 3 weeks ago at the 2013 T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Las Vegas conference, Bill McClure spent $30,000 to acquire Bouquet.com in the show's live domain auction (a sale that was the auction's biggest). McClure, who is based in Fort Smith, Arkansas, is widely known for the successful coffee business he built at Coffee.org, but he also already had several profitable flower-related websites in operation before adding Bouquet.com to his portfolio. 

With a proven platform already in place, it took McClure just a few days to get an attractive ecommerce site up and running at Bouquet.com and flowers and gifts aren't the only things he is offering there. McClure has also set up an affiliate program for other domain owners who have .com names related to flowers, florists and bouquets. McClure told us, "We pay 50% of our revenue, $10 per order, with no expiration cookies. If your site gets an order, you receive a commission for $10."

McClure said the seeds for the affiliate program were actually planted when he had breakfast with Rob Grant at the October 2012 T.R.A.F.F.I.C. conference at Fort Lauderdale Beach, Florida. McClure said, "Rob mentioned that he had a few old flower and related

domains -  three word URL’s, long tail domains - and he asked if we could work together.  I agreed to give him $10 per order and he pointed the domains to our Rackspace servers the following week.  He is now generating around $600 per month from those domains."

With respect to the formally introduced affiliated program, McClure added, "Because of the accounting involved, I am limiting this offer to legitimate domainers only.  If you have an interest, contact me at Bill@Bouquet.com or my cell 479-721-1010."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Elsewhere, David Castello and Bree are celebrating the official release of her new CD, All American Girl, yesterday (June 18, 2013). Domain Hall-of-Famer David manages Bree and plays drums in her trio. 

The CD (available at Amazon and on iTunes among other outlets) has been drumming up a lot of positive attention for Bree including an interview in Huffington Post, selection as one of MSN's featured CD's of the Week and a 9 out 10 star rating from 100% Rock Magazine

Bree has also been in demand on the rock radio interview circuit. There is an especially illuminating 10-minute segment from suburban New York's WFDU-FM that you should check out on YouTube.

One other note today, in my coverage of the fabulous bar mitzvah party that Ari Goldberger threw for his son Josh last weekend in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, I mentioned a James Bond inspired mini-movie featuring Josh that was shown during the event. That video is now available on YouTube

To set up the video for you, the   premise was that Bond film villain Jaws (who was at the party in the form of a look alike actor who was a dead ringer for the original) had chewed through a electrical wire causing a blackout at the party, just before Josh was to be introduced. In the darkness, the gold Torah Pointer (reputed to be a priceless

16th century relic named La Mano D'Oro) was stolen. The movie then begins with Josh on a mission to recover it. 

Once you see the video you will have a better idea of just how over the top the entire Bond themed party (complete with a live concert from Sean Kingston) was. The overall feeling was like being at a once in a lifetime bash that would have made Hollywood proud.
