Now I see the numbers and now I can say without doubt that the entire landscape of the domain industry is about to have a dramatic shift. The single biggest shift EVER! An earthquake.
There is no question in my mind that folks are about to shift their TRUE type in traffic to Frank or one of the new companies using Frank's feed like Domain Power and another company set to make an announcement next week.
NEVER have so many domains and so much traffic shifted to one specific entity in this short a time with so much more to come. NUMBERS! That traffic is coming from all these other parking companies and implosion is not out of the question. I'll explain why in a moment.
The mini site has transformed into lead generation, email capture and other models that are taking advantage of the strengths of each individual domain.
The other day I mentioned that your current parking company was “Hosing” you if you have pure type in traffic. Now I can confirm it. Hosed is not the adjective I would use today. Today I would use something much stronger.
So as this unfolds you are going to see some wild stuff going down as these companies scramble to stay afloat. They are going to tell you how strong they are but that may not last long. Their traffic is being gutted as I write this. The BEST traffic. They are watching the OIL come out and they are about to be stuck with the mud. Slow moving mud with limited traffic.
A company can only lose about 35% of their business before they collapse. We are going to see some very aggressive marketing while they FIGHT for survival. Some may not make it and the ones that do will be smaller and weaker. NO DOUBT!
Stay tuned. All I know is NUMBERS and the NUMBERS are about to bury the greedy. Wait til you find out how much this shit is costing you. You are going to KNOW things you don't want to know. Let's see how many will still carry water for these companies once the truth is known.
If you have PURE type in traffic you will be STUNNED by the numbers. Domainers have taken back control of their industry and there are going to be some very unhappy folks!
What will those companies say when you have a domain making .86 cents a day and then starts making $30????????? Sorry we have been screwing you all this time?? Sorry we were getting fat on YOUR traffic??? Sorry we were taking MOST of the payouts?? Sorry but we are FRIENDS?? BULLSHIT!!!
Now obviously this is the most extreme case right now. But the increase overall is staggering. So....
Sorry guys, you got away with it long enough. It's OVER BABY!! Enjoy the mud.
And if you don't believe it.....see what I wrote back in 2009 when I suggested that an event like this could and WOULD do! I am sure I suggested it even before that. Why?? Because I have seen it happen before.
'One new solution by any of these companies has the power to disrupt the entire sector. It could put companies out of business virtually overnight. The market is fragile and no sponsor could afford a mass movement of traffic and survive.'
And here is a classic from 2008. I described the event. but as always, it is the timing. So here we are NOW. Just 2 or 3 years off schedule. ;-)
And for the record, I don't want to see anyone go out of business. But I do enjoy seeing the oil separated from the rest of the mix and having the existing companies get paid FAIRLY for the service they provide. Will it be too little too late? Certainly is not up to me.
Have a GREAT Day!!
