Joe Alagna, Vice President of Channel Development at 101Domain will be hosting a Google Plus Hangout tomorrow that might be of interest to people in the domain investment business. Participating in the Hangout with Joe will be Simon Cousins, who is experienced in doing business in China.
Simon was on the the team that hosted the Chinese Domaining Masterclass at NamesCon, which was well received. To get a general idea about what will be discussed during the Hangout, Joe recently published a written interview with Simon on the 101Domain company blog. I think the Hangout will delve deeper into some of what was discussed in the interview.
Here’s what Joe had to say to describe tomorrow’s free Hangout event:
“I am going to interview Simon Cousins, an expert on doing business in China.
Many of our clients ask us how to get started overseas. Simon worked with the Beijing 2008 Olympic Committee for several years and was instrumental in the development of some of the most successful new IDN gTLDs in the industry.
China is hotter than ever, and the work his team did to open China to TLD Registry — taking them from zero to hero in 18 months is recognized industry-wide.
101domain can help you to secure your brand around the world but the knowledge you’ll gain here will help you get even further.
Hope you can make it!”
There is no cost to attend the Hangout, and all are welcome. If you want to participate in the Hangout with Joe and Simon, it will be held on Tuesday, April 21 (tomorrow) from 2-2:30pm. You will need to visit the Hangout page and sign up to attend before participating.
I am not sure if 30 minutes will be long enough for a substantial topic like this, so hopefully this will be the first of a series of interviews.
