Well NamesCon is getting closer by the day, my flights are booked and based on the buzz I’m hearing I think it’s safe to say that this is likely to break last year’s attendance record. Like any conference, you’ll get out what you put in and I always recommend that people take the time to plan our what sessions they want to attend.
There are a wide range of talks at NamesCon so there really is something for everyone. I got an email from one of my blog readers last week who is attending NamesCon for her first time, she’s just getting started in the Domaining world and wanted to know what talks I recommended.
So I went through the session list and sent her three talks that I thought would be good for her to go to and thought I’d share that list with all of you as well.
Domain Auctions and Brokerage: A Path to Monetizing Your Domains
The perfect primer to the live NamesCon Domain Auction on Tuesday afternoon! Join our auction partners to learn the ins and outs of how to select your best names for submission, how to appraise names, and insider tips on how to take part during the live auction event. (Sunday, January 28th – 3:00PM – 3:45PM)
Navigating the World of geoTLDs
Geographic TLDs in the form of city, region or country-specific codes are well established, but often misunderstood. Our panel discusses the benefits and downsides of investing in geoTLDs, and assesses the market and viability of these types of domain names. (Monday, January 29th – 3:00PM – 3:45PM)
Mastering Aftermarket Appraisals
Join some of the domain industry’s top brokers for insight on how to appraise and evaluate domain names to sell or purchase. Stay for an interactive Q&A, where we’ll put the panel to the test and have them assess your very own domain names! (Tuesday, January 30th) – 3:00PM – 3:45PM)
Of course there are plenty of other great sessions for new Domainers but I wanted to keep it simple here and recommend three. Feel free to share some of the sessions you’re planning on going to in the comment section below!
