March 31, 2010brian null, DNW Radio, Domaining, DomainnamewireComments Off on DNW Radio: Brian Null Asks “What’s Your M.O.”?

Brian Null’s latest internet venture builds on past experiences.

Brian Null’s latest venture has a great domain name — MO.com. But this isn’t the first time Null has used a valuable domain to build a business. He’s bought and developed a couple category killer domain names in the past. In this episode of Domain Name Wire Radio, Null will explain:

-How he bought OfficeSupply.com, built it up, and sold it to iREIT
-His “teaching moment” of the value of a generic, category killer domain name, and how owning OfficeSupply.com got him meetings with billion dollar companies
-The importance of subject matter passion when developing a raw domain into a big web site
-How he built out GolfCourses.com into a large enterprise, ultimately selling out to GeoSign
-His vision for MO.com, an educationald site that interviews entrepreneurs

DNW Radio: Bruce Marler Talks Local Internet Marketing

March 26, 2010bruce marler, DNW Radio, Domaining, Domainnamewire, local internet marketing, localtekComments Off on DNW Radio: Bruce Marler Talks Local Internet Marketing

Bruce Marler discusses internet marketing for small businesses — and what it means for domainers.

You meet a lot of domainers that are good at technology, and others that are good at sales. It’s rare to find ones with both skills. But one of those is Bruce Marler, who started registering domain names in the 90s when he was helping AT&T build its internet backbone.

Last year Marler exited the corporate world to start LocalTek, which helps small businesses market themselves on the web. In less than 6 months the company earned the business of over 100 clients. Believe it or not, the foundation of its initial contact with many of these companies is a .me domain name.

In this episode of Domain Name Wire radio, you’ll learn:

-The psyche of small businesses when it comes to internet marketing
-When a .me domain name can make sense in branding
-How to approach small business end users about buying your domain names
-How and why LocalTek decided to take outside investment to grow its business

DNW Radio: It’s Domainer Mardi Gras Time

January 11, 2010DNW Radio, domainer mardi gras, Domaining, Domainnamewire, michael wardComments Off on DNW Radio: It’s Domainer Mardi Gras Time

Michael Ward discusses Domainer Mardi Gras 2010.

One of the most talked-about domain name shows from last year kicks off one month from today in New Orleans – Domainer Mardi Gras 2010. Whether you’ve been to Mardi Gras or not, this is a fantastic opportunity to enjoy a domain conference and some of the most fun you can have in a weekend.

I caught up with Domainer Mardi Gras executive director Michael Ward to get the scoop on this year’s show. In this show, you’ll learn:

-How to get a conference pass for just $495
-About the great parties, including the crawfish boil and balconies
-Why the conference moved to a hotel, and when you need to reserve your hotel room
-Details on the auction, which will be hosted on Moniker’s Snapnames platform

If you still aren’t sold by the time you finish listening to this episode of DNW Radio, just drop a note to domainer Sean Stafford. I think he’ll convince you to make the trip.

DNW Radio – DevHub Founders

December 21, 2009devhub, DNW Radio, Domaining, DomainnamewireComments Off on DNW Radio – DevHub Founders

Cofounders and management team of web site building platform talk on DNW Radio.

In this episode of DNW Radio, we talk with EVO Media Group founders Geoff Nuval, Mark Michael, and Daniel Rust. EVO Media Group is known for its DevHub web site building platform.

I first met Nuval on the bus ride to the Playboy Mansion at this year’s DOMAINfest Global in Los Angeles. They’ve had a wild year since then: they’re expanding quickly and have closed on $1.5 million in capital.

In this show, you’ll hear about:

-What types of domain names work well with DevHub, and how soon you should expect to see results
-The difference between “setting it and forgetting” it and actually devoting some energy to building out your sites
-A funny gimmick Geoff and Mark used when first approaching their initial investor, Rob Monster
-2010 road map for DevHub.
-What to do if you’re interested in working for the company.

As always, you can either listen to the show or read a transcript.

Oversee.net CEO Jeff Kupietzky talks about next month’s DOMAINfest Global conference.

DomainSponsor’s DOMAINfest Global conference returns to Los Angeles next month with a few changes. I interviewed Oversee.net CEO Jeff Kupietzky (Oversee is parent company of DomainSponsor) to learn more about the conference. DOMAINfest is typically the largest domainer-focused domain conference of the year, drawing in 600+ people. In this episode of DNW radio, you’ll learn:

-Why the show changed venues this year
-If DomainSponsor plans to hold a second conference in 2010, and where
-How the Snapnames problem affects planning for the show
-Who will be judging the PitchFest and Launchfest competitions
-What to expect at the party at The Getty

You can listen to the show below, or read the transcript if you’d prefer.

Note: I realize the audio of me on the radio show is low. I’m working to resolve this problem in future recordings.

DNW Radio: Rick Latona Discusses TRAFFIC Conference

December 2, 2009DNW Radio, Domaining, Domainnamewire, rick latonaComments Off on DNW Radio: Rick Latona Discusses TRAFFIC Conference

DNW Radio interviews Rick Latona about the upcoming TRAFFIC Conference.

It’s hard to believe, but the next domain name conference is next month. This will be the second TRAFFIC conference organized by Rick Latona, but the first under his multi-year licensing agreement with TRAFFIC’s founders Rick Schwartz and Howard Neu.

What does Latona have in store? Find out in the latest episode of DNW Radio. You can listen to the podcast below, or read the transcript.

If you’re on the fence about whether to attend, I put Rick on the spot by having him give his own 60 second pitch on what you should attend.

I originally had planned to skip this show, but I’ve changed my mind. I’m excited about some of the enhancements Rick Latona is making, and think this will be a worthwhile show. So I’ll see you all in Vegas.

DNW Radio: Antony Van Couvering Discusses gTLD “Expressions of Interest”

November 30, 2009DNW Radio, Domaining, DomainnamewireComments Off on DNW Radio: Antony Van Couvering Discusses gTLD “Expressions of Interest”

Our latest guest on Domain Name Wire Radio is Antony Van Couvering, founder of new gTLD consulting company Minds + Machines. I invited Antony onto the show to discuss ICANN’s Expressions of Interest for new top level domain names.

On the show, Antony discusses how this idea was born, as well as critical components he believes are necessary for the Expressions of Interest to help ICANN predict the number and type of top level domains that will be applied for.

If you have an opinion on Expressions of Interest, be sure to post a comment for ICANN.

DNW Radio: Craig Rowe of WhyPark

Our first ever episode of DNW Radio.

DNW RadioAbout a month ago I announced I was working on DNW Radio, a radio show that will feature domain industry leaders. Better late than never, here’s the first episode.

You may recall that I’m not a huge fan of using video when you can get something across in text. The same thing goes for audio, but that’s why the solution I’m using for DNW Radio is perfect: not only can you stream the audio, you can also read a transcript. If you want to download the podcast and play it in the car, you can. If you want to stream it in the background while you’re bidding in auctions, go for it. And if you’d rather just read the transcript, that’s an option, too.

WhyPark founder Craig Rowe was kind enough to be our guinea pig on DNW Radio. In this episode, he talks about how WhyPark got started, the acquisition by Parked.com, and new features the company is working on. GeoDomain owners will be especially interested in what he has to say.

Please keep in mind that DNW Radio is a work in progress. I’m working on getting the right mix on audio, length, etc. If you’d like to add this show to your web site, feel free to click the link in the widget below. You are free to redistribute the audio. However, the transcript is copyrighted.

Stay tuned.
