They say it is all in the timing. Something I subscribe to. I wrote this post on December 21st as you will easily see below. What was your take away from one of the great events of the era? Maybe the single biggest event of 2012. Advertised for centuries!!
5000 years ago a Mayan salesman was looking for a gimmick. So he came out with a calendar with an ending date and while he died 4960 years ago, his marketing plan was a success. He should be very proud.
Now let's talk to the nuts and suckers that bought into this shit. Yes I know, the day is not over. Of course it is minutes from the next day in certain parts of the world as I write this. And man may have enough technology and evil to actually accomplish that task at some point. We are probably doing that very slowly.
Let me say that Mr. Gimbel, Mr. Macy and Mr Walton would be damn proud of the achievement of this salesman. Did you know that Mayan salesman I invented has a LOT in common with a lot of 3rd tier domainers? They may see something, but if that something can't occur in their ACTIVE lifetime, what value does it really have??
Just add 40 years to your age and see how old you will be and then ask yourself if something that happens in 40 years really going to help you as much as something happening in the next 5 years.
Have a GREAT Day!
The only prices that are and continue to fall are the .something extensions. Any business that is starting out knows where the highest sustained traffic patterns are.
The price offerings I have been recieving for 14 years on .COM Foundations, on average, have never gone down. Domainers are slowly selling off the other extensions and trading up to .COMS. At the same time more buyers enter the money pool every year. There are only so many PRIME Virtual Business Foundations in the .COM Traffic Channel. Yet hundreds of thousands of new internet ventures are in the pipeline.
The Math doesnt Add up unless you are in the .COM extension.
