Once again, I find myself sitting in the Qantas Club waiting for my international flight connection to head to Singapore and apTLD. The first thing that many of you will be asking is what the heck is apTLD? apTLD stands for Asia Pacific Top Level Domains.
I’ve been asked to speak at apTLD and to fly the domain investor flag to the ccTLD registries that will be present. Many of these registries don’t even know that domain investing exists so it should be an interesting education for both them and me.
I must admit that since it’s a short, day flight (only 8 hours), I’m looking forward to getting some work done, have a rest and generally let the world go by. The magic of noise cancelling headphones will block out the planes engines as well as the tap, tap, tap of my fingers on the keyboard.
This is the first trip for me after the northern hemisphere hiatus and I’m really looking forward to catching up with old friends and having a chat about business. I’ve always found that during July and August it’s a great time to do some development work rather than chase people who would much rather being enjoying the sunshine.
We’re now on the downhill track to Christmas and this is the time when most domain investors start checking their stats almost on a daily basis. The rush towards Christmas and the other online high sales days can make the difference between a domain being profitable from traffic revenue or not.
What I found interesting this year was that July and August were two of our biggest months ever at ParkLogic and we are continuing to grow moving forward. It makes me wonder whether the next few months will continue this trend.
Oh dear…..I just heard my flight getting called. If you’re attending apTLD then please don’t hesitate to stop and have a chat with me.
