Is Jean Louis right ?

Post by mikeseaton on Sun 19 Aug 2012, 8:38 am

I have just read the large number of posts made today by Jean Louis.

Whether or not you agree with all, some or none of these posts, it is clear to me that JL is highlighting what many have been saying on both Telnic's and TelTalk's forums:

TIME IS NOW RUNNING OUT FOR THE .TEL PROJECT !

I'm not sure whether Telnic/Telnames realise this, but a look at the constantly falling total registration numbers should be a pretty good clue !

Is there some grand master plan, or maybe worldwide marketing via an affiliate program such as http://www.CJ.com about to be announced, or is it just more and more of the same drift that we have seen for the last 2 years ?

If Telnic/Telnames cant/wont get their worldwide marketing act together and also sort out the nightmare of trying to sell a "new" product with 2 completely different formats (Telnames single-page and Telnic subdomain multi-page) then maybe it is time to ask:

WILL THE LAST PERSON TO LEAVE THE .TEL PROJECT PLEASE TURN OUT THE LIGHTS ?

There would be no problems if the advertised perception of TEL domains, as published by TELNIC, would not be highly exaggerated and praised as being "new way of communication", "powerful mobile presence" and all the other baloney as advertised on http://www.telnic.com

If they would simply say, here is your business card, it is not much, but hey, you have got some in-house made templates in the style of 1995, you have got some options to display your contact numbers, and that's it. I guess, many would be happy as they are now, to have a plain business card.

But short overview shows the fact:
TEL in the news:
http://telnic.com/media-landing.html

There is no TEL in the news. It was. Maybe their website was not updated since 2010 correctly. It was the created and paid Public Relation for TEL domains. It was run as long as there was budget for running the PR, now there is nothing, and nobody significant for the critical mass achievement is interested in TEL domains.

Real-time global directory:
http://telnic.com/tour-global-directory.html

There is no "real time global directory" and if one refers to Telpages, that is exaggerated to say it is "real time global directory" as it is not. It is simple deceitful statement by TELNIC. By purchasing TEL domain or populating it, one does not join ANY kind of "real time global directory". As otherwise WHERE IT IS? I don't know, shouldn't I know where is the "real time global directory"?

Manage your TEL from Android:
http://telnic.com/tools-iphone-mytel.html

As one may see on this post: http://www.teltalk.org/t394-official-android-and-iphone-tel-domain-apps
The Android app is negatively reviewed on Google, and these reviews cannot just be deleted by TELNIC's censorship department, like they have deleted it on their "public and open forum".

Superbook for iPhone:
http://telnic.com/tools-iphone-superbook.html

is also reviewed here:
http://www.teltalk.org/t394-official-android-and-iphone-tel-domain-apps

So there is nothing "super" and it is not even compatible with many devices. There are little or no reviews or users using it. But hey, they have screenshots. Thanks.

Increasing your search engine ranking:
http://telnic.com/tour-seo.html

Is not what is advertise. It is certainly true one can increase search engine ranking, but certainly not by simply registering a TEL domain name. This is exaggerated statement from beginning on. One could observe that many TEL domains dropped in Google searches during the time, and this whole section of empty SEO promises shall be deleted forever from their website.

Making money on TEL:
http://telnic.com/tour-monetize.html

So far the only SECURE way to make money on TEL is guaranteed by myself and my gold in the bank, as the only SECURE way to get money is by dropping the TEL domain: you get the next year renewal directly into your pocket, because you will NOT PAY FOR THE BALONEY AGAIN, and you get US $1 from myself:
http://www.teltalk.org/t395-drop-your-tel-domain-and-earn-us-1-and-more

Gain a powerful and effective mobile experience:
http://telnic.com/tour-mobile-presence.html

I mean, I have various tablets, smart phones, my employees have them. We use internally TEL domain to get quickly the address of the company, when paying the hotel bills. We show the name of the company, its tax number and address to the receptionist. But there is nothing powerful and effective on the "mobile experience". It is as deceptive as it can be in the spam messages I receive every month. Sounds like a Chinese spam invitation to purchase nothing. The TEL domains are certainly not "fastest" as advertised on that page. That is direct lie without any real world benchmarks or comparisons.

Update your info instantly:
http://telnic.com/tour-instant-update.html

Well, I have tried this, and NEVER succeeded to update ANY INFORMATION on the TEL domain instantly. I really tried and imagined it to be so, but it was NEVER TRUE. There was never an instant update. Sometimes, the update did not go through or it took even a day to get updated. That is fantasy in the heads of someone early in that project, but reality is different. TEL domains cannot be updated instantly.

TEL domain is yet another degraded Content Management System on one domain. With payment of TEL domain, one gets hosting and the Content Management System. That is all. Nothing more to it. All the baloney about the "development" is for fantasy programmers who has nothing better in their life but to think there will be some benefit of developing on TEL domain. There is no benefit but personal achievement and personal success in handling a programming task. But not something significant where a programmer or developer may rise to heights. So far we could see developers going away from TEL project.

TEL domain is yet another degraded Content Management System.
It is domain, hosting and CMS together.
And it is a business card.

Nothing more or less but that. Everything else is fantasy of TELNIC and fantasy of enthusiasts.

.Tel could/should have been so much more than that with the data in the DNS accessible for applications the world over to read and display as required.

BUT this will never happen without "critical mass" to make it worthwhile for software developers and Telcos etc.

AND "critical mass" will never happen without worldwide marketing which Telnic (and so far Telnames as well) seem to constantly ignore.

SO it's not looking very good for .Tel's future, particularly with the 1000+ new gTLDs coming onstream soon to attract software developers time and domain investors money.

WHY are Telnic/Telnmaes so averse to marketing a product worldwide that could change the way the world communicates - if only "Joe Public" around the world knew it existed ?

YOU could ask Telnic/Telnames for an answer, but with the withdrawal of the much-loved Roadmap, replaced by the .Telegraph newsletter for product communication (now itself withdrawn), you are unlikely to get a meaningful reply.

WHY DO WE BOTHER - IN FACT MANY DON'T ANY MORE !

IS IT TIME TO QUIT THE .TEL PROJECT & MOVE ONTO MORE PROFITABLE AREAS WHERE THE VENDOR HAS A MUCH MORE PRO-ACTIVE APPROACH TO SALES & MARKETING ?

IS .TEL A CLASSIC CASE OF THROWING GOOD MONEY AFTER BAD ?

AFTER 3.5 YEARS IS IT TIME TO SAY GOODBYE TO TELNIC ?

What's your answer to the above questions ?

That's not so easy to answer:
The technology of .tel is unique and has the potential to become the standard for phone numbers. But nobody knows yet if this will happen.
Everything depends on future developments which can't be predicted.
If you keep your .tel, it can be waste of money.
But if you drop your .tel now, it can be you'll regret it later.
I'd do the following: if you own a quality domain name which is not a available for other extensions, keep it.
Every domain name which has no special value, I'd drop.
After this decision has been made, I'd wait a few years and check again.
