Industry Update - Week 18

Great data released this week!

The data this week shows some great news for domain investors! We saw the beginning of an upward trend in the RPM and nRPM the previous week and this week the numbers show this is continuing.

This result is contrary to the typical seasonal downward trend most northern hemisphere summer periods generate….which means that COVID-19 is having a massive impact on the online space. Several weeks ago I predicted there would be an upward swing of 5% to the numbers and this trend looks like a fulfillment of that prophecy.

This result begs a question. If you’re not seeing bigger numbers in your own portfolio then you have to ask what you’re doing…! If you’re doing the same thing as you’ve always done with your domains, then don’t expect a different result. Give us a call at ParkLogic and we can see if we can help you out.

In the meantime, don’t forget to subscribe, like and comment on the videos. It’s a great encouragement to me to keep on putting them together and with every action the domain message gets out their further on Youtube.

Interview - Page Howe

Catch Page's enthusiasm for everything about domains!

It was my absolute pleasure to spend time with Page Howe, one of the domain industry’s most prominent investors. Page has sold millions of dollars of domains and on the 23rd July, he’s launching the online conference, “The Domain Show” (thedomainshow.com).

During our fireside chat together, we journey down memory lane together, reflecting upon the sales of a couple of his domains, seniors.com and seniors.net for $1.6m. I then ask for him to share thoughts on the current state of the industry and what he believes domain investors need to focus upon today.

Page is incredibly passionate about the domain industry and likewise, he’s excited about his new venture, “The domain Show”. It’s free to attend (you still have to register) and is packed full of great speakers such as Andrew Rosener, Braden Pollock, David Castello, Jeff Sass plus of course yours truly.

I hope you enjoy the interview and get a sense of Page’s passion for domains.

Life Principles - Learning

Developing a learning mindset.

Learning is my third life principle and is the key that you can use when you feel like you have failed. By developing a learning mindset and lifestyle you open yourself up to the incredible opportunity of understanding who you really are.

When I was still in high school, I would bring home at test result of 97% and right after encouraging me my mother would ask me, “What happened to the 3%?” You may think this was harsh but what it highlighted to me was that I knew the 97% and my future learning was going to come from the 3%.

Over the decades this mindset has been invaluable in my own personal development. In this video I openly share some of my own experiences in wrestling with learning. I hope they help you in coming to grips with your own life journey.

Have a great weekend!
Michael

Domain Industry Update - Week 17

What an amazing week it's been!

The data this week has the potential to be a real bellwether for the domain industry in the coming months. The tussle between Google and the direct advertising networks is really hotting up.

I’m still wondering what’s going to happen to all of the unspent marketing dollars that were slated for Facebook by some of the big corporates. Will it head towards Google and ultimately into the pockets of domain investors? The coming weeks will tell a very interesting tale.

I know that a number of domain investors have lost loved ones to COVID-19. I would like to pass on my sincerest condolences to you and your families. With all of the statistics we mustn’t lose sight of the fact that COVID is indiscriminately impacting the friends and families of some in our great industry. I would encourage everyone to reach out to someone that you know and make sure that they are OK.

Life Principles – Trust

Trust is the basis of every relationship.

Trust is the second Life Principle that forms the bedrock of my own life. All relationships are built upon a basis of the truth (from the previous week’s video) and trust. In fact, you could also say that society is built upon an unspoken contract of trust.

Escrow.com

When I look at the world today one of the things that dismays me the most is the assault upon the bonds of trust between us. COVID-19 has brought about an air of suspicion where people are fighting for the “I” rather than the “we”. You can witness this behavior at supermarkets as shelves are emptied in a frenzied zeal to protect “me”.

What makes a person trustworthy and how can we become more trustworthy ourselves? In this video I outline the characteristics of trustworthy people and what I personally look for in someone that is trustworthy.

I hope you are enjoying this Life Principle series. Have a great weekend.
Michael
