We all need to help get the .post-13 March TEL message out...

Post by mikeseaton on Sun 02 Apr 2017, 5:25 pm

...about the effective relaunch of this gTLD that occurred on that date !

Many people of influence in the internet world who may well have written off the original .TEL concept are unaware of the "Normal DNS" OR Telnames-style Telhosting options that have now replaced it.

I've added some links and a video at the bottom of http://MikeSeaton.tel to give .TEL newbies some information about post-13 March .TEL domains.

I've posted on https://www.thedomains.com/2016/07/20/tel-340k-registrations-slips-100k/#comments (1 reply half way down, 2 comments at the end) to try and emphasise that what .TEL offers now is completely different from what most people are aware of !

I've also posted many links on https://twitter.com/mikeseaton to this forum to try and get people reading what's happening now and the change that we are aware of , but many others are not.

.TEL needs publicity NOW - we can't rely on Telnic's marketing - so we need to do it ourselves !

All .tel domain owners have been reminded about the change many times from December 2016 till March 2017.
Everyone who owns a .tel knows about the new situation.

The big question is how the message can reach a wider audience since more than 1,000 nTLDs are trying to do the same thing at the same time?

Any forum members who are able to post a link to http://www.tel.community/t4539-the-smartest-move-telnic-ever-made#17045 from their .TEL domains would help to explain the 5 Good Reasons to BUY a .TEL domain NOW !

I have just added this link to http://MikeSeaton.tel (labelled ".Tel Advantages") and also another link to http://www.tel.community (labelled ".Tel Forum").

Every little bit of publicity for post-13 March .TEL helps !

I agree with Mike.
As far as I know, no other TLD has a group of people who are 'enthusiastic' about the TLD itself, as TEL has -  I guess both positive and negative 'enthusiasm', (negative born out of frustration).

However with some concerted effort this TLD can be propelled. I think Telnic will see the wisdom of spending something on advertising, but even without them we have to move. Right now Telnic is just another registrar but one which is offering a nice cheap site with the domain. That is worth something. That is something to talk about.

We have the best of all worlds now. 
1. A 'liberated TEL'.
2. A TEL on which someone can build a template-based web-presence in five minutes - it is cheap but very useful. (Facebook etc. is toooo busy)
3. A template-based TEL with endless sub-domains being built out by Kolb and Shaheed at the moment.

However we need to remember its not how we view TEL, or how much we can get our tech-saliva flowing, but how useful our offerings are to people out there.
We just have to be creative and aggressive. The distance between our dreams and their achievement is called 'action'!

Outside this forum it's very quiet around .tel!
