I came across to Domain Boot Camp a couple of days ago and I think it’s a great idea. It’s two-day intensive workshop offered by pros, Sharon Hayes and Steve Jones. I think boot camps are great way to do rapid learning. While it’s true that you can learn most of it on your own, via blogs/research, but boot camps have greater value.
Just being in one room with a lot of like-minded people is already a great benefit. It provides plenty of networking and partnership opportunities. And of course, you have pros teaching it, which makes it even better. You can get a lot of your questions answered and hopefully not make as many mistakes.
The trouble with Domaining is that most people when starting assume that it’s really easy and only requires minimal investment. Well folks, that’s not true. Domaining can be like gambling if not done right. Just like gambling machines, you can start playing with packet change, but before you know it, you’re out $1000s
Domaining can have similar effect if not done right. If you buy a lot of junk/crappy domains, they add-up quickly, and before you know it, you’re out a lot of money.
I’ve always advised to take time to learn, experiment with no more than a couple of domains.
Boot Camp would be great if you can afford it. Hopefully, it’ll give you the missing parts of the equation.
I really like the Boot Camp idea and think Los Angeles needs one too
