This crowdsourced name selection service could be the missing link between companies and the domain aftermarket.
I have a fascinating discussion this week with Darpan Munjal, founder and CEO of SquadHelp.com. This company helps businesses select new company and product names with the help of a crowd of name suggesters. It’s been quite successful; it was #247 on this year’s Inc 5000 list and generated $2.5 million in revenue, mostly from naming contest fees.
Late last year the company added a domain name element to its business that could be very interesting to domain name investors, especially those that invest in brandable domains.
Before chatting with Darpan I have a brief interview with Abner Duarte, who is organizing the Domaining Americas conference in Brazil in October.
Also: California.com sells, .Co premiums, Whois info via API and more.
