Looks Like A New Domain Publication Coming in July

domainworld

It looks like there will be a new domain publication coming on the scene in July.

On Facebook.com today we spotted an ad for DomainWorldMagazine.com

As a magazine type publication rather than a blog its seems the new magazine seems to be taking on DnJournal.com which always has considered itself more of a newspaper/magazine than a blog

Ryan Colby of Outcome Brokerage looks to be the registrant of the domain.

From the Facebook page

With over 175,000,000 iPads sold, we figured it was time to publish the first interactive digital magazine devoted to the domain industry!

About

The interactive digital publication for the domain industry. (Launching July, 2014!)
Description

DomainWorld is a subscription based, interactive digital magazine that covers all aspects of the domain industry. We are a monthly publication featuring insightful interviews and cutting edge strategies for key stakeholders.

It will be interesting to see if Ryan can make the subscription model work. Good luck to him and his team.
Andrew Warner tweeted today how newspapers are wising up to a subscription model. Warner runs Mixergy.com and he is who Domain Sherpa patterned his original interview format after. I believe Michael Cyger attended an Andrew Warner bootcamp.

    Good luck to him!

    So much lively discussion about the domain industry is already happening for free that I think it will be a challenge for subscription-based editorials to gain much circulation.

    The quality of information would need to be exceptional. Honestly, I wonder if a broker with inventory to sell can be objective enough to publish articles or interviews people will pay for. But I don’t know what Ryan has in mind; and I’ll be happy to see value added to the industry.

    Cogent points from Bulls, and Joseph Peterson, but not enough to quench the thirst for more innovation in that field. DomainSherpa is good, but not exclusively so. Others can come in.

    The ‘objective’ point is proper. We shall see.

    “DomainWorld is a subscription based, interactive digital magazine that covers all aspects of the domain industry. ”

    I sometimes wonder why people sugarcoat their comments. This business model absolutely won’t work.
    Why would anyone pay for domain industry news when we get it for free from the best in the business. The Domains, DNW, DNN, Domain Investing, DN Journal etc…..have all the news you could ever want. If any of these ever charged for their news I would just go to the next one. This industry is to small and to cheap to ever support any type of paid subscription.

    Do people forget when Francois said this

    “This is why Domaining.com should switch to a subcription based service within the next weeks.
    Don’t panic, the cost should be something between $10 and $30 monthly (still to define).”

    Francois already had a huge following and people basically laughed at the concept. There is so little industry news that most of what we read is just a re-written twist of an old story so who would pay for it when Google alerts me for free.

    It’s also interesting to note what name an Elite Domain Broker registered for his own business. ;-)

    It’s not a single letter (SLD) dot com, nor a category killer registered in 1920′s, nor exact match, nor a new gTLD.

    Just your regular business name. What does that portend? What does it tell us?
