JAPANESE .COM DOMAINS ARE CHANGING A MARKETING CULTURE

Hello Gang,

This might be an article different from any of the articles you’ve read before about domaining.


I’m honored to be able to get this information in front of you, because it regards a decade of strategic planning by one of my clients. Their story is fascinating for true domain investors and online marketers with an international focus.
++++++++++++

I don’t know if the rest of you get this feeling being in the domain business, but many times I consider myself an adventurer circa 15th century sailing across strange oceans searching for new trade routes, cultures and societies to discover.

I have the innate understanding that with new trade can come untold benefits for everyone. This ultimately leads me to clients outside the domain industry with unusual but intriguing ideas of the value of their domains. Few are feasible, but those that are, amaze me. Any domainer can explore and benefit from these same discoveries.

Six months ago, I came across one of the most exciting clients I ever had the fortune to meet. They showed me domains that rivaled the topics of the biggest domain sales in the world, listing a variety of domain brands and generics that I thought were remarkable. However, I had to spend time analyzing and researching them to understand how to interpret those values because they were in another language. It didn’t take long to see my client had domains that sat on the fringes of where “normal” high values of domains rested, mainly, romaji .COMs and some of their CO.JP domains (an honor and expensive to own) and some killer IDN’s.

yeah I saw this posted earlier, it seems he has a partner who is big into Romaji domains and also a little into IDN.

I left a comment like 10hrs ago.. I guess it got "lost", never mind, it's in the cache still

My advice to him is to try to sell his english.com's now. Even if they represent or sound like Japanese words.

どうもありがとうございます

Re: JAPANESE .COM DOMAINS ARE CHANGING A MARKETING CULTURE

Actually thinking about it, this guy has probably seen the writing on the wall for the value of his Romanji domains and this is a last-ditch effort to sell them for anything above registration cost, before IDN.IDN kills his dream.

This is funny. I've never met anyone in Japan who thought Internet was just a fad. It was obvious to everyone that Internet was only to grow over years.

Perhaps he was talking to old Japanese who had never even tried using Internet.

Re: JAPANESE .COM DOMAINS ARE CHANGING A MARKETING CULTURE

saw this , this morning....

yeah......last ditch attempt to pawn off romaji domains...

but I can't lambast the effort.....
ginza.com or nihon-whatever.com 's will probably go on for 50 years +++


I spent a $1000 or so on romanji dot com's and pinyin before really focusing on IDN's and this forum....

all drops.......all considered self-education investment essentially.....

Steve
