I wrote this yesterday day on twitter but I want to say it again here. There are a lot of companies in our industry. 95% of them can all exist and succeed without the other one having to fail. So when I said that Godaddy could crush DAN, EFTY and Brandbucket it doesn’t mean I want the others to fail. It merely meant that Godaddy has a huge advantage over everyone but chose to not put the time or money into Afternic and that allowed other people to gain traction faster than they would have otherwise. But they were still going to do well regardless because they are great at what they do.
Efty is not the great platform it is because of someone else’s failure. Its a great platform because they realized that some people want to manage their own leads and avoid commissions but don’t have the technical background to make their own landing page. Doron and Lionel built it. It was going to have its place regardless.
DAN came about because Rezza felt that commissions were too high at other platforms and that customers needed an easier payment. A lot of time and thought have been put in. They weren’t filling a hole left by Afternic. They were making a platform that’s good for sellers and buyers with that thought in mind
And Brandbucket. They were simply first to market with a site that offered brands. They believed in a business model that nobody else seemed to be able to build.
We should all root for EVERYONE and not root against anyone. If a business is doing something wrong then you should challenge them to improve. Root for them to improve. You can take your business elsewhere but if you’re a real business person you want as many platforms and businesses as possible that give you a chance to make money. There are no teams. The closest I come to teams is promoting companies that pay me to promote them. But we’re not promoting bad companies. Do they have room for improvement? Of course. Everyone does. And I let them know exactly where it is monthly. I want them to get better. For selfish reasons. I want their platform to be better so I can make more money using it. And I want them to be successful so they will make enough money to continue advertising with DSAD.
So keep this in mind. The domain industry is always in need of more innovation and tools. If someone can afford to bring them to market then encourage them. They are not a forest of trees where you need to chop one down to give light to the other. There is plenty of light.
