Videos on a range of topics from management through to domain sales and traffic monetisation.

NamesCon 2020 - Traffic Monetisation

The history and benefits of domain traffic monetization.

This is the second in a three part video series that covers the keynote address I conducted at NamesCon 2020, Austin Texas. The first video addresses the domain sales business model and can be viewed via the below link:

NamesCon 2020 - Domain sales

Escrow.com

This video covers the history of domain monetisation and the major technological innovations that have underpinned the entire business model. It then unpacks case studies to determine how this innovation has impacted the bottom line for professional domain investors.

Of all of the videos that I've made over the years this three part series is the most important. It dives into the heart of what it means to be a domain investor and then extracts key metrics that every domain investor should be aware as they manage their own portfolio.

While I've had the privilege of being in the domain industry for many years Matt is a newcomer. Together we tease out some interesting insights that will be of benefit to all domain investors.

There is one thing for certain and that is the NamesCon team should be congratulated for hosting an exceptional conference.

NamesCon Keynote - Domain Sales

Part 1 of the NamesCon presentation

I had the privilege of being asked to deliver the first keynote address at NamesCon 2020 in Austin, Texas. A lot of people have been asking if I would publish a video of the presentation and here it is!

Escrow.com

I've broken the presentation into three videos that will be published across the coming week. This is the first and covers the topic of Domain Sales.

The presentation looks at the current state of the domain aftermarket, including an attempt to estimate the size of industry and numbers of domains sold each year. On the back of this indepth analysis I present what domain investors can do with this information to help them in their own businesses.

Don't forget to subscribe to my Youtube channel and also here at Whizzbangsblog. This is the first video where I've used my new video recording studio so please feel free to comment on the quality of both the video and also the content itself.

Ed Keay-Smith interviewing me for domainer.com.au

I was just interviewed by Ed Keay-Smith from domainer.com.au the other day. I was first interviewed by Ed over a decade ago and it was great to spend some time together again reflecting about the domain industry.

Escrow.com

We covered a wide range of topics including; monetisation, the new gTLDs, domain sales and a bit of history about what has happened in the domain industry over the years.

I hope you enjoy the video.

After NamesCon I headed over to San Francisco and the offices of Escrow.com. While there I had a chance to check out the Escrow.com offices, chat with the team and interview the CEO, Jackson Elsegood.

In the short interview we discuss NamesCon, the new Escrow.com API and the problems of clawbacks with payment systems such as paypal and credit cards.

Good interview Michael. Before I go, ever considered posting transcripts to accompany videos?

I've thought about doing that but it's actually quite a lot of work and times a premium.
