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.

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.

Domain Industry Update – Week 13

Lots of great data in update 13

In this update we are getting our first glimpse of what the northern hemisphere summer may pan out for the domain industry. Although it’s early days as yet, the statistics are panning out to be really interesting.

I read a recent news article that suggested the USA may have a second wave of COVID-19. This will be a terrible loss of life, economic chaos and a tragedy for many in the workforce who lose their jobs. I wouldn’t be surprised if this spills over to the domain industry with an increased level of volatility.

The big unanswered question is if and when the big corporates will start spending more money in online advertising. If this does occur, then this influx of advertising funds combined with the existing small-medium sized business will become a boom for domain traffic investors.

In the meantime, I pray that everyone is keeping safe. I look forward to seeing you when this international pandemic finally draws to a close…..hopefully this will be sooner rather than later.

COVID Week 8 – Swinging Back Up!

What a difference a week can make!

After last week’s video I thought that we were about to enter a downturn for the domain Pay-Per-Click industry. The data was looking a little daunting but what a difference a week can make!

Escrow.com

In this video I unpack what’s happened across this last week and do a comparison of direct advertisers versus Google. What the numbers clearly display is if you’re not exposed to the direct advertising market then you’re really missing out on a big increase in revenue.

This series of videos show a detailed picture of the domain monetization industry on a week by week basis. They are not to be missed so don’t forget to subscribe, like and pass them on to a friend that may need to get some additional insights with their domain investments.

Once again, we must not forget that in amongst all the analysis there are people really suffering as a result of COVID-19. Don’t forget to give a friend a call to encourage them while they’re in lock-down, have a family zoom session or just text a friend to let them know you’re thinking about them.

COVID 19 – Has the Downturn Started?

Analysis on the impact of COVID on domain investing.

This past week saw Google announce a slowdown in the growth of their online advertising business. At ParkLogic, we have seen increased volatility and what looks like the beginnings of a contraction after a period of rapid growth in normalized RPM. What does all this mean for domain investors?

In this video I discuss the broader online advertising industry and a key statement that the CFO of Google released that suggests a more turbulent future. There appears to be a tussle between big business that has largely exited the online space and the rapid rise in small to medium enterprizes entering the market in search of new customers.

In addition to the regular slides I’ve being discussing each week I’ve added several more that show some of the trends on a weekday basis. These are absolutely fascinating to unpack and reveal some great weekly trends for investors to take advantage.

I am for the data I provide in the videos to provide a clear picture of what is happening in the online advertising space with the goal that it will help you to making better decisions for your business.

COVID Week 5 – Trend Continues

How will the trend impact your business?

In this week’s video I continue to unpack what is happening to the RPMs (Revenue per Thousand Visitors) and EPC (Earnings per click) rates as a result of the impact of COVID-19. Both these metrics underpin the entire domain eco-system, including ICANN, registrars, registries and of course, domain investors.

Escrow.com

Much to my pleasant surprise the trend upwards for in this quarter has continued and we have not seen the expected precipitous drop off in EPC rates. This has resulted in a continued upward swing in the revenue being generated by domain traffic. This is great news for domain investors that are now experiencing the additional beneficial effect of an influx of new traffic hitting their domains.

Amongst all of the numbers and analysis we must not forget that there are individuals, families and friends that are suffering around the world. My heart and prayers go out to these individuals and that we all continue to take all necessary precautions to halt the spread of the virus.
