NamesCon - 22nd-24th Sept

Not long to the auspicious event.

NamesCon is just around the corner and it’s the MUST attend online event for all professional domain investors. Whether you are new to the industry or a multi-decade domain veteran like me, NamesCon has something for everyone.

I must admit that I’m really excited to be taking attendees of my session through the ParkLogic technology pipeline. Yes, we are going to be sharing about some of the innovations that will be coming out before the end of the year….no sneak previews here though!

I will also be sharing about domain monetization in three separate Master Classes. One of the Master Classes will be for high-end professional domain traffic investors or those that plan on substantially growing their portfolios. It will not be for the faint of heart as we dive into case studies and pull apart commonly misunderstood metrics to extract additional revenue. I should mention that each Master Class has a maximum limit of 50 attendees so make sure you get in early.

I have also been invited to share on a panel with other industry colleagues called, “The Traffic Jam”. This should be a great time of banter as we really dive into why traffic monetization underpins the entire domain eco-system.
If you haven’t been to an online NamesCon then I would highly recommend you get your ticket, spin up your computer and join in for a great time of learning and networking. Besides, it’s always wonderful catch-up with old friends.

NamesCon Online is from 22nd-24th Sept…..only a couple of week’s to go!

Domain Industry Update - 25 Mar 2021

Numbers are all over the place.

The week saw some pretty bumpy numbers with both Google and Direct advertising networks being buffeted up and down. It will be interesting to see if this type of behaviour is going to continue in the coming weeks.

I had a great time sharing and listening to last week’s MAX.club in ClubHouse. For those of you that were unaware, I’m now running a weekly 1-hour session on “Entrepreneurship and Life”. As an interim measure you can go to MAX.club to sign-up to the club or MG.club and go to this week’s session details.

This week is title “The Entrepreneur’s Hope” and in this we will be looking at what drives entrepreneurs to push through adversity, work crazy hours and give so much for their dream.

Date: Every Sunday 7PM EST, 7PM PST
MAX.club – information on “Entrepreneurship and Life”
MG.club – This week’s topic

See you there!
Michael

Industry Update - 19 Mar 2021

Great numbers for a great week!

This past week I decided to acquire a couple of great domains…..and they are both new gTLDs. Yes, you read the correctly, I’ve has finally gone rogue and bought a couple of awesome premium domains. So what are they?

Both of the domains I purchased are .CLUBs. I’ve actually always been a fan of .CLUB and over the years I’ve secured a few great ones. This time I grabbed MG.club and MAX.club. I plan on using both of these domains for myself. The first one, MG is my initials (Michael Gilmour) and the second is for a ClubHouse I’ve setup which is all about MAXimising your business and life.

I’ve now setup a clubroom and each week I will be hosting an event that will discuss topics such as, “Life Principles”, “How to hire good people”, “Balancing Business and Life” etc.

Topic this week: “Dealing with Disasters”
Time: 4pm USA Eastern
Clubhouse: MAX.club (search for the club in ClubHouse)
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this week’s stats!

Industry Update - 11 Mar 2021

Advertisers roar back into the market.

What a difference a week can make to the statistics pouring across the Internet. This week we saw a sharp rebound in the Google and more in particular the Direct Advertising network numbers. If you haven’t looked at one of my weekly videos before then this is the one to check out.

As well as the RPM and normalized RPM number pulling around a lot of other great things have been taking place. I recently uploaded a new lesson on MasterClass Lessons (MCL.club) that digs deep into Traffic Quality and why is it that some domains are better than others. If you haven’t done the series on domain monetization then I would encourage you to do so….after all, it’s free!

I should also mention that I am starting a club on ClubHouse….really couldn’t resist actually. It’s on “Entrepreneurship and Life” and will be discussing a wide range of topics that impact not just an entrepreneur’s business but all aspects of their life. I will be hosting it at 4pm Friday EST so make sure you come a check it out.

Industry Update - 5 Mar 2021

Google catches a cold!

This week saw some big changes in the numbers as Google fell away and the direct advertising networks picked up the slack. Yes, you read that first sentence correctly. Google dropped substantially in what it was paying out to domain investors while the other networks paid out more.

This brings up an important point. If you are not exposed to other sources of income other than Google then your revenue can be at risk. If you’re doing more than $500 per month in revenue, then I would encourage you to reach out to me at ParkLogic or via my blog as getting a broader mix into your revenue can help mitigate a lot of downside risk.

If you are looking at selling a traffic domain portfolio then we have some cashed up investors that are able to buy. Please feel free to reach out to me if you’re interested.

I would like to also thank all those people that wished my Dad well. He had a health issue that a bit scary for him and the entire family. The good news is he’s back home and doing well.
