Episode Info

Episode Info: This episode brought to you by SiteGround.  Check out this amazing hosting platform that I highly recommend based upon experience.  The offer free and easy SSL certificates, easy wordpress website setup, and free hosted email. Segment 1: general observations from NamesCon I wrote a quick recap of my first ever NamesCon.  I don’t like spending money, and for me, this trip was a luxury.  Was awesome to bring my son, Jackson (15) with me and spend some quality time with him. THE BEST: GoDaddy CEO Aman Bhutani gave the keynote Thursday. Like every CEO I’ve met, he’s very friendly and says all the right things. THE WORST: Richard Lau’s “Design, Build, and Exit!” made me angry – pay employees low wages, have a crappy office and give poor benefits, so that when you sale, it will be a positive for your employees – so it will make it easier to sell your business. This is some dirtbag stuff. Treat others as you want to be treated – plain and simple.. Other notes Some domain investors are pretty uppidy – “I won’t even look at an offer that’s not six figures” – I bet I heard this a dozen times. Good for these guys, riding their high horses. Some domain investors are amazing and friendly! Everyone was approachable, some had more to say than others. Andrew Alleman’s voice is amazing! Enchanted Rock was a lot of fun. Jackson’s favorite part was was Lisa Box’s talk on Generation Z and Jeff Sass’s (.Club) Economics of a Registry Cool Swag Bro! The closing remarks by Soeren von Varchmin were disappointing. Segment 2: How to best sale your domains via outreach This was a topic that came up at NamesCon quite a bit. James Booth talked about sending an initial email then calling on the phone.  And be persistent and use a British accent, of course. I heard others talking about using LinkedIn messaging, sending letters via postal mail (snail mail).  These aren’t bad ideas if you’re looking to liquidate your domains. The issue I have is that I think this will cause you to get a lower price, it stinks of desperation.  Of course, perhaps I am wrong.  With domains, I think people need to understand the value themselves. When they do, if you own good domain names, then you will have leverage. Segment 3: haters gonna hate I’m going to rant for a moment.  Experience domain investors will tell you that your domains suck, that you’re doing it wrong, and some of them will laugh and maybe even ignore you. Do you anyways. Segment 4: Amazon Affiliate update I haven’t added any content to the site since the original 10 articles.  One article is drawing some interest, though it’s a “seasonal interest” site.  Progress is extremely slow.  I’m working on making time to add some more content in coming weeks – probably 1 article every 2 weeks or so, and see how that goes. ...
