Have you been at that Cider?

Which industry experts, can we have some attribution?

"More than 1 billion .tel identities will be in use by 2013 if only one quarter of global cell phone users are included in .tel subdomains by their carriers. .."

We're only half way through 2012 yet so don't lose hope!

telrific05-23-2012 01:24 PM




Too bad they never went for the "book first" approach, might have more numbers like Facebook today.

:p

Great find Tony, here's a quote:

Lookup services will vary according to carriers, who could choose to limit lookups to directories maintained by each carrier network.


[size]
The only problem is not a single carrier has been persuaded to implement this lookup service in the 3+ years of .tel's existence !

So what are Telnic/Telnames doing wrong (since reg numbers are still continuing to fall) ?

1.) They haven't built relationships with telephone companies (at least not successfully).
2.) They haven't improved the limited design of .tel domains.
3.) They haven't created urgent needed features for .tel domains.
I hope after the Telnames project has been realized we will see some activities related to these matters.[/size]

When .tel was launched, with no previous knowledge (or interest) in domains, I registered a lot. As the first year went by, it dawned on me that I was never going to be able to use them all, so I dropped about two thousand of them, hoping they would go to someone who could use them. Many of them were bought by others and then subsequently dropped again - unused.

Being in at the beginning of something can bring enormous benefits, but keeping all the toys in your toybox tends to stop the other kids from playing with you.

It could be that the drops and continuing silence from Telnic is telling us all (including myself) something that we would rather not hear.[/size]

Just a small note on the bright side.Today I had to stop in at the mechanic, and after taking delivery of my van, I asked him whether he had a website... He said no, and he said also that for years he has wanted one but it was too complicated and too expensive etc etc. 
I then asked him whether he would like to have a site for about twenty bucks. He looked at me skeptically ... and then I asked him to use his computer and showed him my own TEL sites. I then proceeded to do a lookup for his name and it was available. He said "go ahead and register it". 

After quickly setting up his site, (Telnames version) with a few pics off his hard drive, I showed it to him and he was amazed. He said he could not believe how easy it was. Then he said excitedly "but that's all I need". He was happy. I hope I get a discount next time I am in his shop. Smile.
There are hundreds of people like him in every neighborhood. I really believe Tel has a tremendous future. Of course the two versions need to be reconciled. But while we are awaiting the big moves from Telnic we can do a lot by just promoting TEL. and building the awareness,
BTW his site is BeeZee.TEL

Gibran05-24-2012 03:15 AM




I just checked the site and I see that he is already playing with it... pictures changed etc. He is having a ball.

telrific05-24-2012 03:39 AM




Awesome story !

That's one for the Newsletter and the Website for sure !

They did one like that for "Cake In A Box" , but now it's dead and dropped now.

Maybe if TelPages was the Focus and they had the ability to Cross-Advertise
with other .TEL owners in the area with something like AdFlix things could've been different.

Hopefully his .TEL page will not see the same fate once he discovers how easy
the technology is ... for a free website ...

:eek:

Tony, don't get depressed !

The nice thing about banging your head against a brick wall is stopping doing it !

There really are a lot of opportunities outside of .tel for entrepreneurs these days !

No danger Mike. I'm an optimist at heart and even better - my gut still tells me we're on a winner! Otherwise I'd cut my losses.

And you're right about .Co.
I got some good .co domains at launch, but trying to figure out the the right business - with low maintenance being very important.

Well, something like that did happen to the .tel at the very beginning.
You will see a change after the big drop.

Stay :cool:[/size]

Well, we have big drop ongoing, and that should be the last, but people are still hoovering up domains they will never put to proper use - crazy! It's a frustration, and folk are even paying over the odds to back order them! They will all be back in the pot next year, with their Google ads and affiliate links hanging limply on the page, and their former owners wondering why no one would give them something for nothing.

On a brighter note, yesterdays UK Daily Mail reported that YP are changing their name (WANG-HOO, or something like that), and today it reports that Google organised a conference on the subject of child exposure to porn on the net, and that "The Google executive also claimed yesterday to have ‘no idea’ how much money the search giant makes from advertising alongside online pornography which can be viewed by children.
Ms Hunter pleaded ignorance during a debate hosted by Google on whether to block porn on the internet to protect youngsters.
A spokesman for the firm later said: ‘We do not break out our revenues for any area.’"

Of course they don't!

I think they are all in the mire.

I'm feeling quite comfortable with my, now, modest .tel investment, but then, like you, I'm not afraid of hard work.[/size]
