Video - Traffic Monetisation

Video - Traffic Monetisation

This is the final video in the 10th Year of Blogging anniversary series and it covers the topic of Traffic Monetisation. In this video I give my thoughts on the domain monetisation industry, where it has come from and where it is going to in the future.

Escrow.com

One thing is clear, if you are doing the same thing now as you always have done then you are leaving money on the table. This is a must watch video if you have experienced a decline in your traffic revenue over the last few years.

Traffic monetisation has become more of an algorithmic process rather than managing your domains via a spreadsheet. I hope you enjoy my thoughts on traffic monetisation and feel free to ask as many questions as you would like.

GDD and Domaining Europe

GDD and Domaining Europe

So here I am again sitting in the Emirates business lounge at Melbourne airport waiting on my flight through to Madrid and the ICANN GDD domain conference. For those of you that think a 3 hour domestic flight in the US is a long way I would like you to pity me (at least for a little bit) as I begin journey my 24 hour journey. Yes, you read right it is 24 hours.

If you've ever wondered how anyone can survive that long in a flying tin can then let me pass on a few tips. When I finally board the plane I pull out my Bose noise cancelling headphones and assume the foetal position. Eventually I spasm uncontrollably and then collapse into a stupor.....at least until some knocks my head as they walk past in the aisle. This should give you a hint that I'm not flying business class on this expedition.

Flying isn't so much as a joy but something to be endured as you whip around the time zones. The most amazing thing is I often find my body in one location while my mind is several thousand miles away, desperately trying catch-up and jam itself into a new time zone which means breakfast consists of everything you would normally have for dinner.

Enough of my complaining about flying.....so why am I doing it? GDD in Madrid is a smaller ICANN conference which is focused on registries and registrars rather than lots of policy stuff. I'm looking forward to Madrid and also the conference and more in particular it's going to be great to meet a lot of new faces and say "hi" to some long-lasting friends.

Interview with Jackson Elsegood - Escrow.com

Interview with Jackson Elsegood - Escrow.com

As always, it's a pleasure to chat with Jackson Elsegood from Escrow.com. During this video we discuss some of the new developments at Escrow.com and a number of features that readers may not be aware.

We then move on to talk about how Escrow.com has recently been awarded a Torch award in business ethics from the Better Business Bureau. This reflects well not just on Escrow.com but on the entire domain industry as an external authority recognises a key company operating in the industry.

I hope you enjoy the interview and find that it's also valuable to get some fresh insight into a key company in the domain eco-system.

Saturday Musings - Being in a Whirlwind

Saturday Musings - Being in a Whirlwind

This past ten days have been a little crazy in my household. Our son Tim and his girlfriend dropped in for a few days before heading out again with his work. Sarah had her birthday and then moved into her own place and Elise had her car window smashed and bag stolen.

Escrow.com

In amongst these personal comings and goings ParkLogic has been rolling out its new Next monetization platform from one client after another. We’ve also been deploying new systems for registries, registrars, and hosting companies to get the most from the domains they manage.

I’m now looking at a coming week where Tim returns for a few days with a work colleague and he’s hoping I can spend some time with him developing a business plan for a new venture.

While I’m doing this Roselyn and I are getting ready for GDD in Madrid and Domaining Europe in Berlin. The cherry on the cake is preparing for three speaking sessions and twenty plus meetings. Somehow amongst all of this I’m signing off on our corporate, trust and personal tax returns. It's going to be a busy week....
