I want to share a video of a 5 minute KGW interview with Rightside VP of Marketing Bill Glenn. KGW is the local NBC affiliate station in Portland, Oregon, and as you might suspect, the interview focuses on the new gTLD domain names.
While the interview will be of interest to some people who read this blog, what I found most interesting is the audience for this interview. As a domain investor, I am looking at domain names every day. I see domain extensions and automatically know the background. For the most part, the general public doesn’t have much of a clue about domain names let alone the new gTLD domain names.
Interviews like this are good for the growth and adoption of new gTLD domain names. I presume this interview cost Rightside nothing but they were able to speak to the audience and educate them about the new domain names. Even if there were only a handful of new domain names registered by people who watched the interview, the result is still positive since it didn’t cost them anything (I presume).
For some reason the interview is not embedding properly, so visit the KGW.com website to watch.
