THE TEN PERCENT RULE FOR DOMAIN NAMES IN ADVERTISING

Joe Alagna says, “If you allocate ten percent of your advertising budget towards memorable and/or traffic-producing domain names, you will achieve ten times the results for your advertising.”

All the literature about domain names out today takes the angle of “how to make money in domains”. There is a void in literature (for businesspeople, marketers and advertisers not in the domain business) about “how to use domain names to make money in your business”. Almost everything published is about buying and selling domain names for a profit.

ANGIE GRAVES, JENNIFER GORE, PHIL CORWIN and ROLF LARSEN will be discussing these matters and more in this timely session.

DIGITAL ASSETS with DANTE DEANGELIS

DanteDeAngelis

A digital asset in essence is anything that exists in a binary format and comes with the right to use. Files that do not possess the aforementioned right are not considered assets. Digital assets are classified as images, multimedia and textual content files. BITCOINS is a prime example of how the world’s currency is changing its form and its dynamics. Dante DeAngelis will excite you with the possibilities of investments in other than the traditional currencies and the opportunities that abound.
