One of the criticisms of companies catering to domain investors is the lack of innovation in the space. Those people aren’t wrong. There are a handful of companies intent on making innovative changes to domain investor services, but the needle doesn’t seem move much. I am hopeful that is going to change.
I was in Las Vegas for the ICA meeting last week and had the chance to connect with domain investor colleagues. One thing I heard from several people is that they / their companies are building new products and services that are tailored to domain investor needs.
With few exceptions, I am generally open to trying different things that can help grow my business. I am not usually a first mover, but I am willing to give products and services a look when other investors appear to be finding success with them.
My time at the ICA meeting was short. It was the first domain industry event I attended since NamesCon 2020. I had a great time at this well-organized event and will definitely do my best to be at the next one. I didn’t have a chance to see or speak with everyone who attended, so I am sure there are others who are also diligently building.
It was great to connect with colleagues and see what they’re up to right now. For some, it was status quo. Like me, they’re doing what they have always been doing. For others, they are building new and improved products and service. I look forward to seeing what comes of their efforts.
