"Few individuals can operate well in both the cold room and the boardroom," says Rob Monster, Epik's Chairman and CEO. "Beyond that, he is a masterful affiliate marketing guru who understands how to create web content and drive Internet traffic to produce immediate and long-tail revenue. When I introduced him to domains as a financial asset and domain development, he immediately understood the concept of building websites and turning them into passive income generators. His in-depth, hands-on understanding of how to monetize Internet Real Estate makes him the perfect speaker to head the 'Internet Marketing and Monetization' panel at the Epik.com Domain Developer Conference in Seattle," says Monster.

Leveraging the most effective communication strategies and Internet broadcasting platforms on the Internet, Chris has created a pipeline of organic inbound links and monetized millions of visits to his network of websites.

"As someone who lives and loves emerging technologies, the Internet is a great place to hang out with cool people and make money. Unfortunately, it usually takes a team of copywriters, web designers, programmers, Internet marketers and affiliate marketers to launch a successful business," says Chris Pirillo, Founder of Lockergnome.com. "If there is technology out there that will let me do something quicker, faster, better, I'm going to use it. Epik.com has built a platform that quickly turns quality domain names into online businesses that generate monthly streams of passive income. I'm excited to speak to a group of technology enthusiasts, web designers and programmers who are moving beyond parking into online business development," says Pirillo.
The Epik.com Developer Conference features workshops covering the entire domain development lifecycle (Acquisition, Development, Management and Selling), as well as a live auction of revenue-producing websites. There will also be an industry-first "domain swap meet" where domain owners can trade domain names in potential cash-free transactions as a way to expand specific areas of their domain portfolio.
