NamesCon - Be Inspired!

After heading across the USA and a series of whirlwind stops in Europe I am now finally heading to Austin for NamesCon. I'm currently writing this blog from Fort Lauderdale in Florida and I must admit that I can't wait until the 3 hour flight is overr and I get a chance to meet all of my friends (and new friends) when I arrive. It's been two and half years since the last physical domain event and to share a drink at the bar with a group fo domain investors is going to be a real pleasure.

I'm bringing my wife, Roselyn, with me this time and she would also love to say "hi" to everyone so make sure you're not a stranger. Three members of the ParkLogic team will also be joining us; Craig Beveridge (COO), Matt Herbert (Sales Manager) and Andrew Miles (Accounts Manager). You won't be abile to miss any of us as we will be the group walking around with polo shirts and the words "Be Inspired" on the back.

Make sure you drop into our booth and say "hi" to the team as we have some Australian gifts and chocholate that you're just going to love. As well as a booth I will be presenting the first keynote on the Break-Out stage at 11:05am on the first day of the conference on the topic of "Be Inspired About the Future". On the second day, we are running three fantastic workshops on monetization for Elite investors. These workshops will be full of statistics, insights and are suitable for those investors that earn a considerable amount of their income from domain traffic monetization....they are not to be missed.

If you see me wandering around the conference then make sure you say "hi". In the meantime, I've got to go and catch a plane.

Leaving on a Jet Plane

Back onboard is a good feeling!

It’s been quite a while since I last blogged and after a hiatus of two and half years I’m heading back into the sky and around the world….well, sort of anyway. I should say that I’ve been going a little stir crazy in the island paradise that is Australia and it’s with welcome relief that I’m writing this blog.

Given wars and the current state of chaos in the travel industry I’m traveling to Europe via the USA. Yes, you heard that right….Melbourne to Sydney to San Francisco to London. After a brief jaunt around Europe, I’ll then be heading back to the USA and Austin, Texas for NamesCon. To say that I’m about to clock up a few frequent miles is an understatement to say the least.

There are a number of things that are different about this trip compared to every one that I’ve made to date. For a start, my wife Roselyn and the ParkLogic COO will be with me for the entire journey, and we will be catching up with more of the ParkLogic team at NamesCon.

The biggest difference for me is that after NamesCon I’ll be staying in the USA. Yes, you read that right. I’ll be based out of Fort Lauderdale in Florida and flying around the USA on business trips for the following 1-2 months. I can categorically say that being in the US time zone will be a wonderful experience compared to my regular pre-Australian sunrise calls.

I would like to take a brief minute to introduce to you the ParkLogic account and sales managers. Andrew Miles is the account manager and Matt Herbert the sales manager. Both of them will be at NamesCon and I’m sure would love to have a chat to see if we can help you with your domains. Don't forget to checkout the ParkLogic booth and have a chat with both Matt and Andrew.

I have the privilege of delivering the first keynote on the break-out state and three masterclasses in domain monetization. Here is the schedule:

31st Aug, 11am  Kenote on the future of the domain industry|
1st Sept, 10am  State of monetization masterclass
1st Sept, 11am Monetization masterclass
1st Sept, 12pm  The future of monetization

Each of the sesions will be jammed packed with great information and as many insights that I can deliver in the time alotted.

I’d better get going now that my flight has just been called. I’ll see you on the flipside….since Australia is actually up over and not downunder. 😉

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
