There is no such thing as a holiday in the Domain Business

A day can be as busy as we make it.

From the moment we wake up, until the time we turn our brain into ‘sleep mode’, the interaction with events, obligations, projects and other such business functions is a continuum that we rarely dare interrupt.

During prolonged periods of time when we need to rest, take vacation, enjoy a trip or simply unwind away from these daily functions, certain things are bound to happen.

You know it.

Step away from your daily schedule and you will forget about the time you planned to make that phonecall. Take a longer nap and the closing time to enter a domain auction will be gone by the time you wake up. Take a vacation, have a holiday, drive to the store at a time you planned to watch that domain drop – and it will drop and be caught, just not by you.

There is no such thing as a holiday in the Domain Business.

Even on a Sunday, things happen, around the clock and you can’t be missing out. Even on Easter Sunday, Frank Schilling will be watching the clock before the auction ends, to beat those of you who thought it’d be luxurious to have an extra beer with your Easter meal.

And that’s exactly how you lose great deals, you miss opportunities or you fail to succeed. The Domain Business is open 24 hours a day and it requires a lot of effort and discipline.

That, and a good alarm clock.

    “The Domain Business is open 24 hours a day”

    and 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

    Please Please tell this to Sedo and most of the Domain Registrars.

    The Domain Business may be open 24/7 but Sedo and company are not.

  2. Tricolorro 🙂 Perhaps I should have excluded corporations and just included individual domainers. Obviously, companies observe a holiday schedule, whether we like it or not.
