Getting the right perspective about Telnames

Post by Sunrise on Sat 05 Jan 2013, 3:00 pm

It’s a bit sad Telnames are not talking to us, but at least they seem to listen to us.
A lot of great suggestions have been made and Telnames actually followed them:
1. Marketing through the CJ network
2. Television ad on Sky in the UK

Especially the second activity brought a big increase of interest:
Worldwide:

UK:

http://i11.servimg.com/u/f11/18/03/01/53/uk10.jpg

But the number of sold tels from Telnames still keeps low until now.
What would happen if the audience of the television ad would go to Telnames.com and find a starter package for £0?
Would it be possible some people would give it a try?

I’m repeating my pricing suggestion:

£14.95: current version
£24.95: current version + folders

If the price will be £0 then 1000 people will take 1000 TELs each. The total number of TEL will increase on 1,000,000 during one night. But all these TELs will be useless, and new owners will keep them for speculation only. Also, they will take the best TELs, so if in the next day somebody will want to get his one TEL for developing it, he will find no one good TEL for free.

The same situation was with .MP extension few years ago. During one night people took I do not know how many hundreds of thousands .MP domains. Then for few years these domainers kept them for free, and no one project came from that.

The idea of .MP was similar to TEL - the template and free hosting and free domain were included.

After that night the success of .tel would be born!

This can't happen if you limit the inital price of £0 to the first year. The renewal fee will be £14.95.

That would cost Telnames $150.000 of ICANN fees ($0.15 per domain).

What did the television ad on Sky cost? Did the television ad bring 1,000,000 registrations?

Don't give the starter package away for free to prevent such situation. Charge £1 or £3 for it in the first year. That would cover the ICANN fee, too.

I think that not all registrations are equal. One million TELs, which were got for free by accident persons will bring no development for the extension.

The best domains are already taken by domainers. And everybody is talking about reducing their portfolios. The danger that they want to burn more money than they have in the past is low.

The uptick appeared to be about 3:1 while the commercial was known to be running. In anycase, there was a noticeable uptick. Spread the commercial worldwide! It's a positive that's for sure...now to find the best rates and prime time slots.

It’s impossible to prevent domainers from being the first to register the best domain names for any domain extension that shows signs to become successful.
But think a little bit further!
How much attention an increase from 240,000 to 1,000,000 registered domains would draw from not involved domainers, registrars, owners of other domain extension, new end users and phone companies?
Was Telnic not always searching for critical mass?

By my pеrsonаl opinion, domаinеrs аrе аlso not еquаl. By mе, onе thing is а domаinеr who bought domаin for his monеy, аnd аnothеr thing is а "domаinеr" who will tаkе n x TELs for frее.

Also, аftеr fеw yеаrs with idеа of TEL, I bеgаn now to think thаt domаinеrs in TEL аrе diffеrеnt from "convеntionаl domаinеrs" who invеst in othеr еxtеntions.

It will bе simply onе million of "dеаd" domаins.

It will thе sаmе, likе if Tеlnic will rеsеrvе thеsе onе million words - аs Tеlnic аlrеаdy hаd did with somе words, likе countrys' nаmеs, еtc. Thе numbеr on pаpеr will looks grеаt, but it will bе only sеlf-dеcеption аbout succеss.

Sunrise wrote:Was Telnic not always searching for critical mass?
Criticаl mаss, I think, is likе а "musclеs" on thе body. If wе rеplаcе thеm with bаloons аnd hidе this undеr thе cloths, mаy bе it will look grеаt but will not fulfil thе аim of it - to bе strong.

"Criticаl mаss" mаy bе rаthеr а tеrm, invеntеd for simplisity, аnd it mеаn, аs it sееms to mе, thе stаgе of dеvеlopmеnt whеn big plаyеrs could bе intеrеstеd with this idеа of TEL аnd whеn thеy would likе to nеgotiаtе аbout possiblе mutuаl businеss with Tеlnic on thе bаsis that thеy both are еquаl nеgotiаtors. Thеsе big plаyеrs surеly will easily rеcognizе thе diffеrеncе bеtwееn whаt аrе rеаl musclеs аnd whаt аrе fаlsе.

***

From all that I made for me a conclusion, that it will be a long story with that "critical mass". So, the second conclusion, which I made for myself, it is better to prepare now for a long run and so it would be better is to have a lighter backpack on my back.

.Tel is not about domainers.

$20 , $30 or higher is the price and its priced for 1 or 2 quick registrations for established businesses to go mobile. If you are domain sitting on hundreds of domains that are not being filled out, then you are not helping the .tel cause to see mass adoption

It's a sorry situation, because legitimate efforts to use the existing subdomains based $10 product (for example, to build out geo and service based directories that will ultimately upsell/link to even more mobile .tel ie telnames product of real businesses, not domainers) are receiving less and less development time by telnic.

Telnames .tels are being filled out.
The commercials have shown an uptick.

So, times that by hundreds of channels around the world and .tel still has a chance at mass adoption.

Уеs, it is sо.
