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

Domain Industry Update - week 19

A big annoucement and a big change

I have two things to share with you this week, the first is a big announcement and the second is the numbers are looking staggering! When I say, staggering I really meant it. There have been some massive changes in the online advertising landscape that are now flowing through to domain investors.

The big announcement is that I’ve now launched MasterClassLessons.com. Master Class Lessons is a website that will host freely available training courses and the first topic covered is “Domain Monetization”.

For many years I’ve had an ambition to release a structured video training course on “Domain Monetization” that is relevant for both entry level and experienced domain investors. All you need to do is register and you get access to over two hours of lessons that start with a bit of my own history in the industry and finish with how to effectively manage a large domain portfolio.

I plan on adding to the series and incorporating additional topics that relate to domains, entrepreneurship and life. At the beginning of this week’s video I take viewers on a quick tour of masterclasslessons.com….I hope you enjoy it!

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.

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.

Domain Industry Update – Week 16

Is a massive change in the wind this week?

This week showed a VERY unexpected change in the stats and one that I personally was very surprised to witness. It signals a potential massive change in the domain monetization industry so hang onto your seats as I dive into the data.

Escrow.com

I also couldn’t help noticing that Facebook is going through a whole heap of pain as major advertiser after major advertiser has stopped advertising on that platform. The question I ask myself is where will the advertisers go to attract the Gen Z and millennial eyeballs?

Google? Unlikely. Twitter….they have their own kind of pain. Whatever happens, I’m sure the data will begin to reveal the activities of major corporate advertisers.
