I don’t read Namepros as much as I used to but I feel people like Bob Hawkes put in a lot of time to write a good article and I appreciate what he does over at Namepros. It’s great that Namepros gives people like Bob a voice. It exactly what it was meant for.
While reading the article on hyphens I see that the ad running in the top right is for dot bond. Yes, dot f’n bond. Every single person is going to think James.bond and that is it. And to make it worse they spent marketing money to get in front of domain investors. There are a ton of bad domain investors but I don’t think any are that bad. This has a less than zero chance of being successful. How can it be less than zero, that’s impossible.” Usually yes but with dot bond it is possible to have less than zero chance. I haven’t figured out how many they would need to break even but whatever that is and subtract all of them but 17 and that’s how many registrations it will have. Over under 17.
Change that. Its going to have 2. Two registrations. Let me get out my calculator for a second and……..nope. That’s not enough to break even. And no amount of advertising in front of Namepros members is going to change it. As a matter of fact, now they’ve blown their Gold.bond registration money and are really in the hole. We’re going to need a Coffee.bond sale with payments over 30 years to hype this bitch back up to pay for the advertising revenue spent. Add in a little NamesCon keynote money and dot bond is in real trouble. But they’ll be fine. Pretty sure .xyz will pick them up
