DomainAdvisors.com Partners With Morgan Linton Investments to Expand Services at the PPX International Unit

Less than three months ago PPX International Chairman Gregg McNair launched a new service for the domain industry, DomainAdvisors.com. Now comes a new partnership announced today that will greatly expand the company's range of services. Below is the full press release about the new union:

DomainAdvisors is excited to announce a strategic partnership with Los Angeles-based Linton Investments LLC. Linton Investments started in 2007 and has spent the last three years acquiring, developing and branding exact-match domains. 

“I learned early-on that I could get onto the first page of Google and Bing by combining exact-match domains with an informative content site and good SEO,” said Morgan Linton, Founder of Linton Investments LLC. 

Three years later Linton Investments has created over 150 online brands and helped countless Domainers move their top properties from Parking to profitable online businesses. Morgan’s Blog, MorganLinton.com, has become one of the top resources for Domainers generally and has helped lead the movement from Parking to Branding.

With this partnership DomainAdvisors will combine the talents of both Morgan Linton and Daina Burnes. Daina's passion and enthusiasm for the industry was made apparent to all of those lucky enough to meet her at one of the several conferences she attended over the past year. Daina focused on new ways to leverage monetization models beyond PPC at Affiliate Summit West earlier this month and looks forward to gaining more insight at DOMAINfest Global in just a few weeks.  

PPX Group General Manager, former mega broker and mastermind behind DomainAdvisors, Tessa Holcomb said “The partnership with Linton Investments completes the range of services provided by DomainAdvisors with two of the nicest and smartest people in the industry. As a publisher author and acclaimed trainer Morgan personifies the term ‘Domain Advisor’.” 

Together DomainAdvisors and Linton Investments will help domain owners with all aspects of the domain lifecycle.

Linton Investments helps bridge the gap in the services already offered by DomainAdvisors by adding branding and development to the list. This breaks the mold from the traditional brokerage house, often focused on selling as many names as possible with little thought for the portfolio as a whole.  

“Domainers are stumped when it comes to selling to end-users or development and often end up selling their names for pennies on the dollars to other Domainers,” says Linton. 

In 2011 the game is changing. It’s not about who has the best domains, but who does the best with their domains. DomainAdvisors and Linton Investments are poised to take a new approach, leveraging an all-star team and delivering the full package to the domain industry.

- end Press Release -

In my opinion this is a very smart move for PPX as they continue to rapidly expand their service offerings. Morgan is a multi-talented guy who really knows his stuff. I'm sure DomainAdvisors.com clients will find he and Daina to be delightful people to work with in addition to being professionals who know how to add a lot of value to any online enterprise.
