Leonard Holmes interviews Donny Simonton.
In a recent post Andrew questioned the value of internet video for many purposes. Â I don’t completely disagree. Â My own pet peeve is pages that start playing the video as soon as you land on the page. Â Give me a play button. Â I know how to use it.
I do believe that interviews can be a great use of video, however. Â I personally get a lot more out of a video interview, because the person’s personality often shines through much better than in a text interview.Â Take the example of this Donny Simonton Interview, fresh from DOMAINfest Global. Â Donny lets us know that PPC (pay-per-click) numbers are down around 20% across domains in their system. Â He tells us that financial domains are hit even harder than others. Â He puts a bright face on all this by telling us that Parked has been able to make some design changes to tweak a few more clicks out of people in some cases, so in those cases income may be flat. Â He also shares thatÂ ParkedÂ will now allow you to include TemplateMonster templates on your domains within their system. Â
This rote description pales in comparison to the video interview. Â Click below and see if you don’t agree:
