Besides buying and selling domains Eric focuses on developing some of his domains and does it in a way he is used too. Eric sold Bored.com and a network of 170 related websites in January of 2008 for $4.5 million.
Today Eric has another short .com that may very well be his next big website sale down the road. Dumb.com according to Eric gets 10,000 uniques a day and makes $5000 a month from advertising. The site has a host of things to do to waste some time whether on your lunch hour or taking a long road trip.
Some of the things to do on Dumb.com included:
Prank Stories – True stories of pranks that people pulled
FlipIt – Amaze your friends by typing upside down and backwards. Send them an email and they will wonder how you did it.
TV Character Personality Matcher – Which TV Character Are You Most Like? Answer a few questions to find out.
There is plenty of other dumb stuff to do on Dumb.com. New dumb stuff is added each month to keep the people coming back.
In talking with Eric he is well aware that the website could be developed in a more high end way, but he has found success with his way and admits to being different in his approach.
The site just got a Twitter account and you can follow here
