SupremeNames.com JOB available: Data Miner - Details inside.
SupremeNames.com is currently offering data mining positions available immediately.
The job really consists of simple google / whois research (Training given) where you would be collecting data on potential domain name buyers.
(Company name, admin contact etc.)
You will be given a small list of domains (at a time) to collect from.
The employee must be willing to meet reasonable deadlines, be a team player and conduct themselves in a professional manner.
Basically if you have basic web knowledge you are probably qualified for the position.
How exactly would you be conducting this data mining?
Here’s an example:
lets look at this domain name "astockquote.com" one would simply go to google or some other search engine type in "a stock quote" and first collect the sites that are returned (say is mystockdomain.com was result #3 you would simply copy this site name for further data mining)
then once a list of potential sites is compiled, ones that would be interested in using "astockquote.com" for their own business (their focus). you can simply look up the admin / technical contacts of that particular domain via WHOIS. or get contact information from scanning their site.
all information must be compiled is the specified format.
What's the Pay?
The Data miner can expect a commission of 10 - 20% from all sales landed due to their leads. This is the usual brokering fee associated with actually selling a name for another person but here you can make the same amount simply by mining the data.
Initial contact and Negotiations will be conducted by a totally separate team, so you need not have any business experience, nor do you need to call up / email / fax a potential buyer.
Payments can be made out to a person or business entity Via paypal or personal check.
All Payments are in US funds.
because of the nature of the work a lot of leads can be collected in a short ammount of time.
I have rarely had a marketing campaign not result in a sale. and all sales will be in the $xxx - $xxxx range . so the more data mined the higher the potential for higher and more frequent sales.
Originally posted by Reality Hosting I thought using whois information for solicitation was illegal?
Er, by illegal I meant against the terms of the companies that provide the whois database
nope, people in the domain industry are outsourcing all the time trying to buy names as well as sell them.
in my 2 years in the domain industry I haven't really heard that you can't use public information to ask if someone would be interested in selling their name or if (assuming that it's a name that can be used for their business and is remotely similar)
I get requests to sell and buy all the time.
just comes with the territory, domain owners expect that and most welcome it with open arms. Including me
