Domaining's Most Fascinating People: Ryan Colby— "Morning Wood"

36-year old Sedo power broker Ryan Colby closed another significant deal the other morning, an exclusive listing contract for wood.com. It's not a special morning because Ryan lands deals like this every day. He also celebrated his 1000th friend on Facebook. You wouldn't know there's a recession anywhere in sight. Ryan's having his best year ever.

In the spirit of this year's theme and recipients of this honor, Colby has brought a much needed skill to domain brokering— marketing— applying Twitter and Facebook to his advantage, setting up his own private networking club "Domain Name exclusives" .. and even speaking about the value of domain names at the AdTech conference recently.

Ryan's message is simple: "we're trying to share the message that domains are an integral part of successful online marketing. Marketers of any kind from companies of any size can benefit from the right domain!" He is getting the domain message out to the masses. And boy has such marketing paid off for him. And in doing so, with the sales and headlines that he generates, he also pushes the industry forward with each success.

Preferring deals with a value of $200,000 or more, Colby has had a great 2010 selling heavyweight generics like PatentAttorney.com, RedWine.com, Canadian.com, Logo.com, NameCheck.com, Jerusalem.com and more:

Watch as Ryan Colby applies yet another marketing tool to his advantage- VIDEO- where he talks domains with the kind of authority and subject matter expertise end-user buyers demand. To Ryan, good luck and continued success.
