NEW OPPORTUNITIES IN AN ERA OF CHANGE

THIS IS AN ARCHIVE FILE Rodan Media is now Rodan Media Group Corporation, and we are forging ahead with a number of projects within and outside of the domain industry. All are directly related to website and domain development, which are not entirely the same animal, though they spring from the same breed. On the website development projects, we are current working with a number of attorneys in the Fort Lauderdale area to get their…

Lacking Finesse, Use Brute Force And Insults!

THIS IS AN ARCHIVE FILE When I was 23 years old, I was given a pretty potent journalism award. I thought I was a dynamic genius. By the time I was 25 I was a news director. I was unstoppable. By the time I was 30, my unflappable ardor had cost me everything. I was literally penniless and homeless. Arrogance is not a virtue. Instead of using my alleged genius and showing respect for colleagues,…

Technological Shifts and The Factors of Production

THIS IS AN ARCHIVE FILE A debate has begun between a fellow, who has a potent economics background, and I.  We are discussing the allocation of resources – such as capital, land and labor.  It is well settled in basic economics that a fundamental shift in the allocation of resources leads to an introduction of new financial instruments to accommodate the change.  The reason is the need to generate the money to facilitate development of…

They Have Come, and the Flamenco of Worlds is Begun

THIS IS AN ARCHIVE FILE Content development is time-consuming and resource-intensive work, but only if it is done properly. It is easy to throw a few lines of code onto a page, add a picture or two, generate a clever graphic, and place some keywords to help the spiders and bots find your site, after several months. But real content development, content development that is relevant to the user, which content also holds a long-term…

Tom Gardner Was Right About Online Video, But .TV Is Not the Way

THIS IS AN ARCHIVE FILE Online video and streaming is huge. YouTube.com was the ideal purchase for Google at the time the acquisition was made, and the timing was right. The price tag was staggering, but the number of users and contributors is most enviable for any domainer looking for better traffic numbers. In 2006, during the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. East show in Hollywood, Florida, Tom Gardner of the Motley Fool stated he believed that online video…

Are Your Emails Secure from Subpoena? Facts About the SCA

THIS IS AN ARCHIVE FILE Not being an attorney, my perspective as to the legal implications of the Stored Communications Act of 1986 may mean little in a court of law. The awareness of the act, itself, is paramount for anyone in the world of domains or any facet of business online. There are innumerable free email addresses, and I remember when I first had an email address of my very own @juno.com. That was…

Finding The Niche, And Running With It

THIS IS AN ARCHIVE FILE Talk about targeted traffic, this double entendre could not be more perfect to describe one of our current projects. It is an undertaking of monumental proportions, but what better way to put all the experience we have to use by putting a traffic site online that attracts drivers of the American roadway. When we first thought of the idea it was post-Orlando T.R.A.F.F.I.C., and Roy and Kay* were returning to…

The Open Directory Portal: Has It Closed?

THIS IS AN ARCHIVE FILE That question has been on my mind for the last 30 seconds. I had not really given much thought to the open directory portal in recent years. For those who do not know what it is, here is a quick review of the history of the search process on the Internet. Once upon a time, not long after Al Gore invented the internet, search engine companies began crawling around cyber…

The Client Varieties: The Kind You Keep & The Kind You Let Go

THIS IS AN ARCHIVE FILE Holding hands is great for lovers, but not for clients. When I am discussing content development, video production or advertising design with a prospective client, I relish delineating the creative possibilities. They are fairly boundless, constrained only by imagination. Prospects always have questions, particularly if they have little experience and are making their first foray into the realm of creative development. Many client prospects have a world of ideas they…

Domain Prospecting, Cyber Squatting and Trademarks

THIS IS AN ARCHIVE FILE Upon first hearing of the T.R.A.F.F.I.C. show through my business partner, Roy Crogan, my right eyebrow reached for the heavens as I thought about the potential for networking with hundreds of people who would need to have their websites developed. Listening further, my brow furrowed as I thought to myself, “These guys are a bunch of cyber squatters.” Just because one has been developing domains for clients does not mean…
