The doubters of “Future Trend” domain investing in this industry who had reservations and most likely a misunderstandings of what it takes to invest in FT domains may be impressed with Billboard’s headlining article on hologram celebrities performing in this technology. It seems hundreds of estates of some of the best “deceased” performers are stampeding to this new technology.
Hologram concerts, events, DJ’s, and any visual format and medium for presenting a quality reproduction of a popular, but no longer living performer, is the new rage in technology and entertainment presentation.
It’s no longer a “point of contention” from short-sighted domainers who missed out on the unbelievable market of FT domains that were “smart bought” by FT domainers, because now the naysayers are quietly nibbling their toes. Never before has a domain name niche exploded on the scene with direct identification of where the market is. When 3D domains were the big trend (and they still are), there were so many uninformed domain investors (I think that’s what they were) ridiculed the buyers of 3D domains, and attributing their negative comments specifically to “3DTV”. Whooops! 3D is all over the category map, and if any of the cynics did their homework, they’d know that, and stay quiet. That would give them the chance to pick up one or two of some powerful OOTB purchases in this category. Only one domainer I know of actually learned from this and made a smart move — “smart” glasses by Rick Schwartz. It isn’t the “category killer” that Berkens indicates, but it’s a great domain name that can push across several categories to reach brands that would pay big money (more than $4k) to own Rick’s domain.
With Hologram Celebrity concerts becoming a hot new venue for corporate producers, the hologram niche is a new domain market so wide open for FT domainers to take advantage of these domains, it’s like Christmas in the summer. That’s a timely comment, obviously. so when you read this in the winter of 2012, you probably will have heard of some incredible FT domain successes.
Stay tuned for more updates on this incredible, top-of-the-page entertainment news reports coming out of Hollywood. This marketing niche is so big that I will personally be following the marketing news articles and blog reports to try to keep you up to date on what is happening as fast as the news comes in.
Cheers to the smart investors in FT domains! The Future is YOURS.
