First-Time NamesCon Attendee Shares His Experience

Traversing the domain industry to find your place under the sun can be quite challenging, especially when your a newcomer.

There are many casualties and carcasses along the domaining journey to learn from or join. YIKES! 😳

One doesn’t have to blindly throw money down the drain purchasing ill-advised domains.

In fact, you’re likely better off attending a few conferences and touching base with experienced domainers BEFORE  spending a dime on domains.

And speaking of conferences, I recently attended NamesCon 2018. I met with a number of domain investors and industry professionals throughout the conference.

One of the attendees, Andre Gary (pictured below in the middle), was gracious to share his domain investing journey and NamesCon experience with me.  Andre attended NamesCon after winning the VIP ticket giveaway.
