Cannabis Leader, Green Roads, Acquires GreenRoads (.com) Prior to IPO

May 2018 

A Frager Factor Opportunity Alert

Cashing in On The BIGGEST Need For Names EVER: Cannabis


November 2019
California Domain Investor Shows Us The $$
Top five player in emerging $22 billion CBD space invests $160K in an exact match domain name. They first tried to steal it via UDRP, but ended up getting it for a steal compared to what their forthcoming IPO would lose without it.

From 2018:
Today: Cannabis is going to be big business. But no longer joints, bongs and thongs. That's why many 420 and longer domain names that domainers have reserved for this day won't work. Names should be short, catchy, brand able and more medically focus as eventually Cannabis is the path to curing the world's most destructive chronic conditions.

The post linked here, went on to showcase seek of the names already building brands, the famous guys that owned them and examples of packaging and why it matters.  
November 2019
Since then we've experienced an outburst of marketing and branding innovation...
“It isn’t often that you see an entirely new market emerge on the scene, especially one where brands will play a key role. Many people first experienced cannabis as a unbranded plastic bag. This is not likely to be the future state. Cannabis will become a market dominated by strong, vibrant brands.”
Imagine of they never had jeans and jeans were being launched for the first time. All the names, styles, advertising, retail distribution was being established. Joe was first so he becomes distributor for all of florida for Levis. Larry makes a pitch and is hired to design logos, ads, pocket manual. Levis became an $80 Billion  business. Part of the popular culture. From thin air an industry springs up that employs 700 million workers.
That's what's happening on the Cannabis side, right now. And for sellers of brands and matching domains, social handles etc. a gold rush is there for the taking.
Realizing that takes strategy and effort.
Learn the industry. 
Get their newsfeed. 
Start making lists of who is using what name for what. 
Who doesn't have product names that can be matched to a domain? 
Who might be expanding or merging and they will need a new name.
Maybe I'll be telling your own domain success story next.

Documentary Showcases Future Internet Moguls Growing Big Ideas On .CO Domain



Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW), the world’s largest celebration of entrepreneurship, kicks off today – and so too does the latest .CO annual worldwide campaign in support of GEW and the creators, innovators and entrepreneurs who hustle hard every day to bring their big ideas and dreams to life.    

From November 18th through the 24th, GEW will touch the lives of more than 10 million people through 35,000 unique events, activities and competitions taking place in over 170 countries.  In support of GEW, Neustar is launching a new worldwide campaign called “We Run on .CO,” which shares the stories of some of the innovative, exciting startups, creatives and entrepreneurs who are building the future on .CO. 

To showcase the incredible impact that the .CO top level domain has had on the global startup community, we commissioned a film crew to crisscross the world filming short micro-documentary interviews with .CO community members in some of the cities with the most thriving entrepreneurial ecosystems, including: San Francisco, London, Medellin, New Delhi, Melbourne and New York City. The interviews feature the stories of the founders behind some of the most interesting new startups, early stage ventures, and emerging powerhouse brands. 


In all, the digital campaign will feature seven micro-documentaries, showcasing these high-impact entrepreneurs:
·         Oropendola.co, Medellin, Colombia
·         TheHustle.co, San Francisco, California
·         CGVentures.co, London, United Kingdom
·         Naina.co, New Delhi, India
·         CreativeCubes.co, Melbourne, Australia
·         And.co, New York, New York
·         Adaslist.co, London, United Kingdom

“We are so excited to launch the We Run on .CO campaign, highlighting the inspiring community of creators, businesses and brands who are building their ideas on the .CO global platform,” said Lori Anne Wardi, VP of Branding for Neustar Registry Solutions. “More than a web utility, Colombia’s .CO TLD has become a dynamic, global digital brand – a platform where the brilliant ideas of a thriving community of innovators and entrepreneurs are coming to life each and every day.”

.CO is the domain for innovators and risk takers, hustling hard and turning ideas into reality. In fact, according to a global report released by Cisco Umbrella last month, .CO is the fifth most used TLD globally based on web traffic rankings. While global giants such as Google (g.co and campus.co), Twitter (t.co) and Apple (apple.co) were early adopters of the .CO domain, “it’s the new generation of startups that are staking a claim in this unique space where craftsmanship and artistry rule, diversity is key and people are the most important currency,” said Kristin Johnson, Global Director of TLD Marketing at Neustar.  Johnson goes on to say, “we are proud to feature some of the exciting businesses and brands that are building the future of the internet on .CO -- disrupting the status quo and making their mark on the world.”

The video and campaign assets will be promoted via a holistic, integrated global marketing campaign, including placement in major online publications in Colombia and worldwide including, Entrepreneur, Venture Beat, MSN  and Smart Company, among others. You can view the teaser video for the We Run on .CO global campaign at proudtobe.co.
