So I really enjoy doing the DomainSherpa.com shows that comes out on Thursday mornings. It is one thing to sit behind a keyboard and punch out words and thoughts but it adds a dimension when you can see who we are and how we approach things. Not everything translates well in words. Powerful as they are.
If you have watched any of the episodes, you will see while we agree a lot, we often times disagree. I like disagreement because I usually learn something I did not think about. Or sometimes I have thought a great deal about something that others have not.
I hope folks are getting something out of what we are doing and hope it helps them to focus on acquiring better domain names. The entire panel is qualified and they are smart businessman besides. They are all friends and good guys and as you see we have a good time too. Plus, we are brutally honest and opinionated.
Anyway's, I had never written about the show and decided just to start a little conversation and hope you have seen some and hope you like what we are doing.
There are a lot of very good blogs out there. But the one that never wastes my time, always has something important to offer, is an education in and of itself is Seth Godin's Blog. He's been around for years and most folks reading this know of his blog. For those that don't, he should be on your reading list.
Seth always gets right to the point and the point is almost always immediately useful. It's PURE GOLD!! And it is EVERY single day!
I wrote a post that I did not post yet. I think the main point of it and life is that if you approach things from the wrong way, the wrong attitude, the wrong side, then your chance of success is very low. Approach with a good attitude and a strong desire and your chance of success is great.
A recent post he made is about trust and word of mouth. Something many need to pay great attention to. He explains each and every point below. All valid. All proven. All inclusive.
"How is it that someone sees your website or your social media presence or your email and decides to interact? The decision to interact happens before someone actually listens to what you have to say. Here’s a way to think about the factors that kick in before the browser even hears what you have to offer them today:"
- Word of mouth
- Direct interaction
- Tone of voice
- Size of leap
- Social ranking/metric
- Tribal affiliation
- Perception of transparency
- Mass acceptance
If you are not reading his blog each day, you may be starting off on the wrong foot. It's pure and I have yet to see
