Once the legal framework for how this industry is going to work gets fleshed out, there will be a flood of entrepreneurs who will be trying to get a piece of the market.
Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) June 27, 2013
THC Domains, a marijuana domain name sales website, has announced the availability of a large number of cannabis-themed domain names for entrepreneurs who are interested in going into the marijuana business. The website is a division of THC Media Group, a cannabis marketing agency that was founded in 2013 to address the needs of the legalized cannabis industries in Washington and Colorado.
A spokesperson for THC Domains said, "We've partnered with a few domain collectors to bring this huge list of domain names to the market. We believe that forward-thinking business owners in the cannabis industry will understand the value of having a strong internet presence. The 'green rush' is coming, and the entrepreneurs who get their websites up in advance will be the ones who reign in the most customers."
THC Domains lists their available domain names according to certain keywords, such as "marijuana," "cannabis," and "pot," as well as by city, state, and region. "Some of our favorites are BigMarijuana.com, YoMarijuana.com, and WeedMecca.com, but there are hundreds that would make for great brands," said Noel Abbott, Principal at THC Media Group.
Abbott is a web developer and online marketer who saw opportunity in the measures passed in Colorado and Washington last November when the states voted to legalize marijuana for recreational consumption. "The night of the election, I went on a domain name buying spree. To this day I'm still finding great cannabis-keyword domains that people haven't snatched up."
Abbott predicts a smaller-scale "dot-com boom" in the coming months. "Once the legal framework for how this industry is going to work gets fleshed out, there will be a flood of entrepreneurs who will be trying to get a piece of the market. I'm sure they're already out there thinking about this unique opportunity. Of course the federal government can try to shut down the industry, but it's going to be too big and too costly for them to make a very serious dent in it once it gets going."
Beyond domain names, THC Media Group also offers online marketing, search engine optimization, and website development. The company was founded in 2013 and aims to "set the industry standard" for cannabis marketers.
