NamesCon Keynote - Domain Sales

NamesCon Keynote - 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.

Good video, lots of "moments of truth" in it about the industry.

I think people are wasting their time with outbound and try to hire brokers though. A name worth something will have some level of inquiries and that is the best way to sell. If people see outbound as the solution then real problem is likely that they have chosen bad domains.

Thank you for your kind comments.
Outbound sales is tough and there are very few good domain brokers that have managed to crack this nut. Creating a desire to buy a domain is challenging work.....I agree that it's easier to take the order!

Hi Michael,

Thanks for sharing your presentation data.

It is very helpful to understand and correct ourselves when the data is based on stats and previous sales.

you touched that in this video.
