First recorded five digit .ME sale in 2013: reviews.me
Amr Mahmoud, of Profile.com opened another good year for .ME by completing the sale of reviews.me for US$ 10,000.00. He purchased the domain name back in 2011 for $1,150 on one of the registry held auctions. This transaction has an effective IRR of above 500% - quite impressive for this class of domain names. Well done! Our congratulations go to both the seller and the purchaser.
The buyer is Yotpo with a product about social reviews. Late last year they raised $ 2.3 million from various investors to compete with sites like Reevoo. They had few more names on their rebranding list, but could hardly beat it with anything else. Review.Me could have had a potential, but as indicated on their website: "it is not for sale". Reviews.Me is in the stealth mode on RocketLaunch platform currently accepting subscription.
Short demo of the Yotpo service can be seen below:
Amr and his team are currently busy with projects like profile.com and sharm.com. The latter is going to be a site about Sharm el Sheikh city for visitors and residents. He also owns few ultrapremium .ME names like finance.me, shoes.me, tickets.me, healthcare.me, photo.me, concert.me, magazine.me, shopping.me.
Disclaimer: Brands-and-Jingles owns eReview.Me and it is for sale.
