I think I wrote the shortest post in “DomainingTips history” yesterday and the main reason was that, you guessed it: I wrote it on my smartphone. As much as I love you guys, I love my sanity more, so there’s no way I’m writing a long post on my smartphone. Today, I’ll elaborate a bit and explain why smartphones are (in my opinion, of course), utterly useless when it comes to real work.

Am I the only one who finds them utterly useless for *real* work?

I think a lot of new gTLD registry operators rationalized their fears away by saying something along the lines of “ok, most strings won’t be smashing hits but we’ll still break even in a reasonable timeframe” instead of trying to come up with ways to innovate.
The problem is this: even relatively soon in the game, we’re starting to see extensions with only a low 3 figure number of registrations after the first day of General Availability.

Nowadays, if you tell someone to be grateful for electricity or Internet access, you’ll probably get laughed at. Most people, especially tech savvy crowds like online entrepreneurs or domainers, tend to take these things for granted. But just stop for a moment and think about what would happen if you’d end up let’s say losing Internet access for one week. That’s it, just seven days.

During the 2000 – 2002 period, one Euro was worth less than a Dollar and that made sense. After all, the Dollar is the world’s reserve currency and it has been around for a considerably longer period than the Euro. But something happened and during certain periods of 2008, the Euro ended up costing almost 1.6 Dollars.

If you can help someone, do it. A lot of times, the little things count.
If you notice that a domain a friend/contact of yours most likely wants is on the market (maybe that first person’s first+last name combo, for example), let him or her know.

… yeah right!
Let’s assume you’re selling, I don’t know… coconuts.
Now let’s assume someone got sick after eating one of your coconuts and that the story has been picked up by all local TV stations, newspapers, websites and so on.

As domainers and/or entrepreneurs, we’re often tempted to adopt an “I know everything” mentality. After all, we’re involved in the world’s most dynamic industry and all that. We’re smart, we’re ambitious… but we don’t know everything. We just don’t.

… yes, this post is about sleep. In 2013, I decided that it’s time to start sleeping like a normal person. As you know, I’m not from the US and since I’m in a different time zone, it’s easier (in most cases) to communicate with others by basically “adopting” the US time zone.

A lot of times, being genuinely helpful can be extremely profitable. You might just be making the best investment of your career… without knowing that you’re making an investment. A lot of people adopt an “I can’t be bothered to…” selfish attitude and it’s an understandable human instinct. But don’t make the mistake of underestimating the importance of networking.
