presidential candidates also are now raising literally tens of millions of dollars using the Internet alone. In addition, sales of websites, domains and related businesses have generated millions of dollars as investors snap up inventory.
According to the Berkeley Daily Planet, $8 billion dollars will likely be spent on the 2012 Election Cycle. “That compares with $3 billion in the 2010 election — a record for a mid-term election — and $5.3 billion in 2008.”
Presidential candidates have already raised and spent millions of dollars in the 2012 campaign, news reports highlights how the White House hopefuls are stacking up in the money chase.
President Barack Obama and Republican Mitt Romney and their allies so far have spent a jaw-dropping millions on TV ads in just a handful of presidential battleground states, an early and unprecedented explosion of spending for a general election still a full five months away.
The avalanche of ad dollars is larger in size and scope at this point that in any previous campaign, fueled by the closeness of the race, a proliferation of deep-pocketed independent groups and an eagerness on both sides to frame the debate before summer when voters pay little attention.
“The presidential race has been surprising to us – the amount of it and the early entry,” said Mike Lake, sales director for KCRG-TV, the largest station in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. “But this is just the tip of the iceberg.”
Television ads are just one component of a presidential campaign’s multimillion-dollar effort to woo voters; the Romney and Obama teams will also spend heavily on tools from digital targeting to field operations to direct mail. But the emergence of independent groups known as super political action committees has significantly crowded the airwaves, thanks to a trio of federal court decisions including Citizens United that loosened campaign finance restrictions, allowing corporations and wealthy individuals to spend freely on political ads of their own.

The difference between a great domain name and other marketing expenses is that you are acquiring a permanent, valuable and potentially resalable brand, which helps future customers define you – as opposed to renting keyword traffic from a search engine.
Owning a more meaningful domain name has become expensive with the average price of a common phrase or saying, ending in the dominant .COM extension, hovering between $9,000 and $30,000. In fact, the collective domain name industry consistently sells an estimated $5-10 million of domains each and every week at prices buyers are more than willing to pay.
Why are Good Domain Names Priced High?
Are they priced high? The debate about why domain names command so much value is never a debate between people who understand the value of them. Those who do not understand the premium value of domain names simply need to brush up on their understanding about the scarcity of the underlying asset and put jealousy aside.
If one were to compare the price of almost anything to its “original” cost we could classify “everything” as expensive. A $3 bottled water costs how much to produce? A $300 pair of designer sunglasses probably cost less than a cup of coffee to manufacture!
Those interested in learning about domain names should start by visiting places like Domaining.com, DNJournal.com, DomainNameWire, theDomains.com or ElliotsBlog.com to understand the very active domain name marketplace which exists and why names which are wrongly perceived to be expensive today, will be cheap at TEN TIMES THE PRICE tomorrow.
No, because real estate has a tangible, and long- standing value in our society. The business of selling land has been around for nearly a millennium. The Internet is merely 15 years old. Domain names are certainly property in the online context, and many generic names are owned by astute investors who saw the future value of these properties long before it was popular to poke, tweet or surf. Just like traditional real estate, these individuals should be recognized as smart people who were in the right place at the right time.
Unless you have a registered trademark on a particular name or someone is intentionally capitalizing on a typographical variant of your registered trademark, no one is really “squatting” on a domain name. Everyone pays for the privilege of occupying their name via renewal fees. Those who wrongly complain that “some nefarious party is squatting on their name,” without a trademark, are equivalent to telling grandmother that her foresight in purchasing that beach acreage makes her an evil natured women
How Much is a Domain Name Worth?
A domain name is worth what anyone is willing to spend. Sales routinely go unreported in the millions of dollars, however most domain name re-sales occur between $5,000 to $80,000 Premium domains, category-killer domains and short-meaningful names frequently command “hundreds of thousands” or even “millions” of dollars, depend- ing on a wide range of parameters. Look past the broad value spectrum and consider how a single $10,000 domain name’s cost compares to the value proposition of traditional media.
