Frank Schilling Talks SEXY; Sells Com

Photo: DNJournal

Keynoted Frank: ”The same words get recycled into different things. A “Bug” in the 1950′s was an insect, in the 60′s a car, today its a problem. “black friday” meant the 1929 stock crash when I grew up; or Web (spiderweb in the past). From time to time new words evolve like “twerk” (the dance) or “blog” (web-log), but by and large the same dictionary words get recycled to mean different things and those multiple meanings cause traffic to those generics to climb. ”


(OF: A prime example is Frank’s sale of CoinNews.com noted below which may have been envisioned at registration for coin collectors, then a year ago for digital wallet and now for BitCoin which beats domains as the newest, fastest growing commodity known to man. Evolution, Baby!


Congratulations to Frank Schilling and Uniregistry for a superb presentation in Vegas and for adding five new gTLDs to the two it had delegated in an earlier batch: .gift, .guitars, .link, .photo and .pics.

According to Domain Incite, "the delegation of .photo means the root now has its first singular/plural clash; Donuts already owns .photos."

While I don't thing the "G's" are a play for average-Joe domainer, with smart marketing taking a different path and connecting with target audiences (which I blogged about earlier) will bear fruit. 

I can not understand why blogs of the smartest folks alive are littered with debate about the new "G's" when 90% of those arguing have no need, want or desire that applies. It's like trying to sell pork in a Hasidic neighborhood. 

The "G" marketing teams need to go as outside the box for marketing audiences as unique as their strings are.

One thing about the comments on other blogs that turns my stomach are all the people whining about being burnt on .TV, .CO and especially .MOBI where THIS blogger gave you all the reasons NOT to invest, primarily that Frank Schilling, Kevin Ham and Richard Rosenblatt weren't investing. 

I also knew the iPhone as coming because I had worked on the project. 

And apparently Frank, Richard and Kevin knew the G's were coming which would remove the legal roadblocks for big corps to buy into the TV brand.

All those whiny posts can be consolidated into this statement, "I willfully gave all my money and borrowed money and future financial security to make Bob Parsons a billionaire and the fact I haven't learned my lesson that I am a failure at this and haven't gotten a new profession is going to make a lot of Antidepressant makers, bankruptcy attorneys and credit counselors even richer still sooner rather than later. 


Would you image a Facilities management company in Australia named Strata buying BuidingManager.com? It exemplifies when your brand name doesn't express what you do, exact match domains are the only way to increase advertising response and advance Google position. This end user benefit has nothing to do with traffic or CPC and I for the life of me continue to be dumbfounded and my stomach turns when brokerages in this day and age advertise these insider domainer-to-domainer trading stats, and do not know how to sell based on real-world needs. I suggest watching the Wolf of Wall Street where Jordan Belfort suggests every end user contact starts with questions to uncover needs and not a sales pitch to tell them what you think they need. If you missed him on Piers Morgan check out the interview HERE.
