Director of Business Development Location: Delray Beach, FL Contact: +1.561.634.7349
Mark Daniel, Director of Business Development, has been essential to the growth of Domain Holdings since joining the team as an original employee in 2010. Mark reaches across many internet marketing and domaining channels to ensure an increase in and retention of clients for Domain Holdings and its properties.
Always in tune with the current domain market, Mark has keen insights, and has proven time after time what it takes to be a successful domain broker. He is well educated across many verticals of internet advertising, intellectual property, online marketing, SEO and more. He also constantly has his pulse on the ever-changing search landscape and prides himself on transparency, customer relations and always doing right by his clients.
Mark attends most all industry-specific tradeshows and events to constantly find new buyers and sellers. He doesn’t look at himself as a salesman, but more of as a matchmaker, trying to fit the right buyer to the right seller.
The majority of Mark’s domain sales are to end-user clients and companies as opposed to the wholesale domain aftermarket. Mark understands how specific buyers and sellers think, and provides his perceptions and rationale for why a domain name is worth what it is worth. He aims to broker deals that benefit both buyer and seller. His years of experience along with his expertise are of great benefit to his clients.
Prior to joining Domain Holdings, Mark joined John Ferber to build USO Networks, a video SEO company; he is still involved with this role today. After graduating from Florida Atlantic University in 1998 with a Bachelor’s degree in Communications and Music, Mark worked as a Senior Leasing Representative in the regional mall real estate industry in the Northeast for more than 10 years.
Mark currently lives in Boynton Beach, Florida has a passion for live music and is an avid guitar player.
How Mark Can Help You?
Mark’s main focus when selling a client’s domain name is to strategically find the right end-user buyer who can benefit the most from an asset. This means finding end users far outside the domain community and Mark has a knack for researching and identifying potential end-user clients for almost any domains. And it doesn’t stop at finding the, Mark helps them understand the power of a domain that is relevant to their business.

This is a very important part of any broker’s success as finding the right assets is critical to the success of the job. Some of Mark’s favorite properties to work on include:
- Premium Domains
