    Hi guys i have a interesting domain, thats for sure.

    In Portugal there going to be elections for prime minestry, one of the probably winner candidate its called Luis Filipe Menezes but everyone knows him as Filipe Menezes. Anyway his campaign site is http://www.luisfilipemenezes.com but as i said before nobody calls him on the first name, He´s known and all the newspapers and news agency´s call him Filipe Menezes. I registered http://www.filipemenezes.com.

    How would you guys would monetize such site if you were presented with this opportunity

    lmao so true..
    'neways, I'd park it.. I'm too lazy to find it.. oh what the hell here it is:

    _domain Parking

    Once you start all that, get paid traffic for it as well, then once it's booming (and before it starts to go down in traffic), show it to this felipe guy (or whatever)

    ..If and ONLY if he doesn't have the sense to see that this site of yours is getting 5x more traffic than his own, then you may do the whole photoshop thing.

    After that, watch your back ;)

    .. this is what I would do

    cheers,

    _trakout

    No, no, no, put up a Donation link, get some donations, then sell it to either candidate.

    Paypal gives premade "donate" buttons


    And if I had such a domain name, at first I'd create a quick site (with joomla, xsitepro or whatever) with adsense, which is better than parking.
    With the traffic you can expect with such a domain name I think you'll make some good pocket money :D
    Then when you get enough statistics about the traffic you get, and when you have made a few hundreds or thousands bucks, offer the guy to sell him the domain, ask a high price, politician got lots of money ;)
    First tell him how much traffic this domain is getting, and tell him that I doesn't want to lose this traffic on his own site, huge traffic is a good argument to ask for a very high price
    If he doesn't want to buy it, then put a donation button and make hard cash from it for a while, then do the nasty photoshop thing just before you run and hide with your cash and never come back in portugal again :D
