I’ve learned a few things over the years about what people want to hear. One. They want to hear how you made the money. It’s great that you made money but they really only care about how THEY can also make that kind of money. If the article or speech doesn’t tell them how to do it then it better be a damn good story about the journey. As much as people like to learn to make money, they enjoy a good story.
Two. They want to hear about the lifestyle that comes with money. They don’t want to hear a brag, they want to hear about the stupid stuff you purchased and why it was stupid but you enjoyed the hell out of it. Anything entertaining. I think Frank Schilling has missed so many opportunities to give incredible speeches over the last few years. He has an incredible story and can be as entertaining as anyone in the industry. Instead the speeches of late are about selling Uniregistry. He mentioned buying fuel for his jet in a speech and everyone just shook their head. He doesn’t realize they don’t want to hear about the jet. They want to hear about the journey to the jet. He has a go to story about selling a group of domains that he thought he sold for a set price but the check came in 8 times that and realized the buyer thought that was an each price instead of for all of them. People love that story and I bet he has 100 more of them. That’s a speech we all want to see.
There are so many good talks and stories to be had in this industry if someone asks the right questions. Michael Cyger was the best at getting these stories. There hasn’t been anyone before and since that had that ability. Andrew Alleman is close but he doesn’t draw out the extended answers that Michael did. He’s a little quick to get to the next question. It’s not a knock on him. I think he is the best news reporter in the business. Interviewing is a learned and honed skill.
The current Domain Sherpa does a good job. They’re working hard but I would be lying if I didn’t say its still not the caliber of Cyger. We didn’t realize what a talent he is until he wasn’t. Again, it is learned and the Sherpa team will only get stronger and better. There is no lack of domain expertise as Drew is the best in the business and Tess is getting better every day. They just had this giant Cyger shadow that is hard to get out of. The whole entertainment and information side of the domain industry is in that shadow. In the meantime I’m looking forward to the next star to shine.
