Valuable education domains available as more students turn to online education
BOSTON, Feb. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — DomainAdvisors, a leading broker of premium domain names and websites, announced today that a select group of category defining education domains including, but not limited to, GraduateSchool.com, GraduateSchools.com, OnlineGraduateSchool.com, OnlineClassrooms.com, Schooling.com and Educational.com have been listed exclusively for sale with their firm. Such targeted and brandable domains present a significant opportunity within the enrollment-marketing sector, companies involved in online lead generation for the education vertical, or to an established educational institution. As a result of the upward trend in the online education market as a whole, premium education domains such as these will only appreciate in value over time.
Just last week, TechCrunch, a leading technology media property, released a compelling article entitled, “Online Education Is Replacing Physical Colleges At A Crazy Fast Pace” stating that, “while educators knew the online revolution would eventually envelop the physical classroom, a torrent of near-revolutionary developments in the past month are proving that change is coming quicker than anyone imagined. In just 30 days, the largest school system in the U.S. began offering credit for online courses, a major university began awarding degrees without any class time required, and scores of public universities are moving their courses online. The point at which online higher education becomes mainstream is no longer in some fuzzy hypothetical future; the next president’s Secretary of Education will need an entire department dedicated to the massive transition.”
As more schools follow suit, educational lead generation will become increasingly more competitive. Lead generation companies will do everything they can to attract students interested in educational services ranging from online tutoring and test preparation to earning college credits and even online graduate degrees. Descriptive, generic domain names like GraduateSchool.com, GraduateSchools.com, OnlineGraduateSchool.com, OnlineClassrooms.com, Schooling.com and Educational.com rank higher naturally attracting targeted visitors who are more likely to convert. “Timing is everything,” states Tessa Holcomb, CEO of DomainAdvisors. “It’s not often that domains within any given vertical become available for sale just when that industry is booming making the timing optimal for the right company to acquire these rare assets.”
