I will be at NamesCon in a week, but I am not really going for the panels or keynotes, with one exception. I am looking forward to hearing from GoDaddy VP and GM of the Aftermarket, Paul Nicks. You can watch Paul’s keynote from last year’s conference to understand why this is the one keynote speech I am planning in advance to attend.
Ever since GoDaddy got into the business of selling its’ own domain names in the aftermarket, the company has been able to compile a huge amount of data. I wish GoDaddy would share some of this data with customers more regularly, but I will pay attention to what Paul says in his keynote. I am hopefully he will share some trends he is seeing across the NameFind o/o portfolio, pricing strategy, landing page strategy, and other tips that has helped NameFind (and GoDaddy clients) sell domain names.
Here’s what Paul briefly wrote about his presentation:
Hey all, just polishing up my keynote slides for @NamesCon. Plan is to give real advice on building a portfolio by using a fictional investor that’s an amalgamation of real (and really successful) customers. Should be a good time, keynote hall on Mon @ 11, C U There!

I imagine Paul’s presentation will be uploaded to YouTube at some point in the near future. Perhaps his PowerPoint slides will also become available. If that happens, I will share it here.
It looks like there are going to be plenty of panels and presentations that will interest attendees. Two other panels/keynotes I hope to attend include Bhavin Turakhia’s keynote and the panel discussion about Data. One thing I find a bit peculiar and hope NamesCon changes is that the domain name sales optimization strategy panel is at the same time as Paul Nicks’ keynote. It seems like both of those sessions would be of interest to the same audience.
Safe travels to those of you who are attending NamesCon in Las Vegas. I will see you in a week.
