Eric Borgos tells his interesting story. You can learn a lot from it.
I’ve long been a fan of Eric Borgos, even though I had never spoken with him until yesterday.
I’ve been a fan because he’s extremely frank and revealing. He blogs about his successes and failures, but focuses more on the failures. He even publishes his annual revenue and net income numbers from his businesses. This sort of candid analysis and transparency is unheard of in the domain name industry.
Eric has sold millions of dollars worth of domain names and sold a network of sites, including Bored.com, for $4.5 million. Today he released a new eBook, which you can currently download for free: How To Make Money Online: Work From Home and Get Rich On The Internet.
The title might sound a bit cliche. Essentially, Eric has taken his many good blog posts over the years and edited them into a book.
You’ll read about why he bought two bricks-and-mortar flower stores…so that he could sell flowers online. He explains how he built Bored.com into a multi-million dollar business, and how two competing suitors bid up the price. Eric discusses his failed attempts to create mini sites on his domains, why he decided the time was right to sell his .com domains, and why he thinks it’s both the easiest time to start an online business and the hardest time to start an online business.
In true Eric fashion, his pitch for the eBook discloses the process of creating the eBook.
Eric isn’t an internet marketer. He’s not going to spam you after you download the book. In fact, you don’t even have to give him your email address.
