Big Things to be Unveiled at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Next Week! Including Something”Revolutionary” from Frank Schilling

Morning Folks!!

Big things to be unveiled at TRAFFIC Next Week and now it is starting to surface.

Why did we pick this time of year and October specifically to do most of our annual show since 2004? The #1 reason is because October means BUSINESS! That is when folks really start paying attention again. The financial engine of the universe starts up for the holiday season. In October things happen. Big things happen and BIG decisions are made. This is all teeing off for the season and the following year. Even the cars are mostly unveiled in October. The market goes crazy in October because of what i just started.

Last night Frank Schilling distributed a letter to his group of traffic partners. Frank takes the gloves off and offers a 'Revolutionary' change and one of the frankest writings I have ever seen from him. He is determined to break the status quo wide open and by luck of timing, he will introduce his new baby next week at T.R.A.F.F.I.C. Let me give you one tidbit. You MUST have an iphone 4 or 5 to participate. No droids at this time. He recommends that if you don't have one, you go out and buy one. I wholeheartedly agree. Here in small part is what he had to say:

'I think I’ve found the Gold folks. Something to bring you real value.. No fluff here. Something material and revolutionary. You will ultimately be the ones to tell me if that’s so. During the past 9 months, DNS has taken the first and perhaps the most important step of improving the experience for buyers, of explaining value. For the sellers we have created a process to speed up negotiation and provide greater speed and certainty around negotiation.

I’m very proud of the platform that results from our effort. We think that you will find this software revolutionary to your business – so much so that we’ve patented many elements of it. It will be free to use and open to everyone.

During this project we have revamped the inside of our ITC/DNS management interface to make it more simple and enjoyable to use and improved everything that folks liked. Even our existing partners have never had these tools, permissions or powers. Newcomers will be blown into next week when they see it. We’ve built a very elaborate, but easy-to-use application for which you will need to purchase an iPhone .. (any iPhone, 4 or 5).

We’ve coupled these two pieces with a sophisticated in-house management platform to change the way you think about your domain business. The three elements, Management interface—App—CRM System work together like a piston engine. I plan to announce these changes at TRAFFIC in Ft. Lauderdale. I have no particular reason for choosing TRAFFIC as the venue to launch this product other than the dates align with our readiness and I’ll be there as an attendee.'

As Frank does that I am reading on that Afternic will be unveiling their newly designed site with all types of new bells and whistles.

I am privy to a few other introductions and a couple of delayed which could be because of the crowded field of what is going to come out next week at TRAFFIC. I also am seeing companies disappearing and melting down. It's not going to be easy from here on out and if you see what Frank wrote, you know that he too sees things far beyond the confines of domaining that are sure to affect us all in the coming year. Let's just say 'Challenging' will be an understatement.

I am on record as saying the 3 months before the election and the 3 months after the election would be some of the most volatile months we have ever seen in our lifetimes. We are in that gravitational pull right now. Just look at a world on fire.

The big puke is coming and then things will get better. Much better. Just like a stomach ache. And then it goes away.

Have a GREAT Day!

    There will be nothing Revolutionary in domaining until something is done about Google, which should be spear-headed by next year TRAFFIC in Las Vegas. The entire problems we face in domaining is caused by Google. Google controls traffic to internet websites, and they do it in an evil selfish manner. I don’t care what your domain name is, your product, your vision, if Google is in the mix, you are wasting your time. The time to mobilize and get congress involved to break-up Google is NOW!
    One entity cannot be allowed to control all that Google controls. Google, admirably, is able to tell the US government that they will not remove a video from U-Tube; Google is able to thwart court orders by foreign governments such as Brazil; Google is able to manhandle giant corporations such as Microsoft; Google is able to determine what PPC is paid, who shows up on searches, what TLD ranks where, even perhaps, multiplex domain names, or make a domain invisible.
    Therefore, we have a problem. Google killed domain name business slowly bu surely. Until we start talking about how to deal with it, every pronouncement is hubris.

    I got lucky to get on the system a few months back. I don’t have much revenue at all but this system opens up so much opportunity.
    To me it’s like getting on the ground floor. Now I know if I buy a name for even 500 bucks I can get that back in the same year or two with this system. This along with whatever is coming out next week will very exciting.

    You are…right. But don’t forget that domains are here to stay for more decades. Maybe google won’t. Let’s ask yahoo! what they think about that.

    So, a PC can’t be used with his system?
    Dying to see it. :)
    I agree, never quite read Frank write with that tone. He is usually so much more reserved. He came across like an overly-excited schoolgirl, so it must be very nice and he must be very proud of it.
    Can’t wait, and thanks Frank!!!

    He’s not excited as a school girl he’s forewarning of what many of us have known is coming and we were dismissed as freaks and conspiracy theorists. Not any more. The perfect storm of climate change, peak pool, and financial insolvency across ALL governments will bring WW3 (Nuclear this time and be prepared to be drafted). You need to watch catch the entire prophets of doom on discovery channel these articles

    I hear you owen, but I was specifically talking about hia new sales system, not his warnings about the economy.

    My point is that it’s all the same topic.
    When you get zero interest in banks and stocks fall 50% and pension funds evaporate every one thinks Gold is the only option. Not so. Domains are currency but only if you have the quality and stop having to carry the pigeon shit renewals which when the shit hits the fan you’ll be thinking how dumb was I blowing 5-10K carelessly when I could have bought 1 or 2 names that there’d be competing bidders for later when names are harder to find and start to all be taken buy end users. So it’s good and bad news.
