I’ve been busy lately but wanted to say a couple things about what’s going on in domaining and of course, my opinions
Morgan Linton I’m always talking about approaching things from a different angle and Morgan “gets it” He’s putting domaining onto film. I watched him make a who’s who of domaining at TRAFFIC and I think people are underestimating where he is going to take this. I only see one problem, how’s he ever going to keep his “real” job.
Frager aka the last domainer still on blogspot. I really want to meet him. I hear good and bad about him but I figure it’s like his posts. Some are excellent and show incredible knowledge and others are 120 characters long and show how busy he must be
DnPimping.com Jason is starting to get the blog bug back. He’s posting more than ever and putting out some good stuff He’s got a great future in domaining if he can kick the junk tld habit 🙂
Rick Latona Dropping the price of TRAFFIC is a great business move. His daily auctions are fantastic and just when you thought he couldn’t do any better it seems he has
Chef Patrick One of the best guys I met this year. We all miss his daily blogging but happy he’s doing well. He always wanted to move big money domains and he’s fulfilling that dream
LLLL.com I absolutely love this domain and should have bought it from Reese the first go round. Scraping up money to buy it now at the auction
Fusible.com One of my favorite blogs. One of the hardest working men I know. Does his day job AND puts out quality articles and research each and every day.
.CO As much as I hated .cm is how much I like dot co. They are a class act and seem to be doing everything right. They certainly are spending the money to try and do it correctly. The results are yet to be seen but their relaunch seems to headed in the right direction
IdnNewsletter.com Speaking of niches. They’ve found it and are succeeding. This isn’t a short term gain. There is a ton of money to be made in this category. Those that dismiss it are foolish. Those that don’t understand it are many. You need both of those to make good money.
Epik.com Great business model. They have nothing to lose. They get half the profits and the user pays for the build out. It is also a perfect alternative to parking. The epitome of win-win. Once their customer service catches up to their idea it will be complete. Rob is fantastic, the others…… to be determined.
My favorite newest idea/site. Auctionpus.com A nice example of KISS. We’ll see how it goes after the hype wears off. He has a real chance.
And finally, at TRAFFIC a few people told me that like all industries, among all the great people in domaining there were some douchebags in this industry. It took me 6 months to find them but I finally found a few…….but let’s stay positive.
