do you really think it's a good idea to ask / answer that here?????
Should have been done as a PM.
The Singapore mirror of Epik is running normally. @Raj V or @epik can be a resource for anyone with technical challenges.
It's working again now, finally.
Introducing new Epik team member:
@RaquelPenha is based in Portugal and a friend of @Miao, the founder of Sibyl Systems, now part of Epik. Raquel is a young dynamo and is bringing some new energy to our European leadership team that is taking form. We are excited to have her on the team so please welcome here, and @Eric Lyon will tag her with an Epik badge.
Thank you so much @Rob Monster, excited to be part of such a hard-working and dynamic team! It will also be a pleasure to help everyone have a better experience at Epik.
Será ainda com todo o gosto que ajudarei todos os que falam a língua de Camões e procuram oportunidades com uma experiência lendária nesta que é, sem duvida, uma empresa focada no cliente e em proporcionar grandes oportunidades.
Welcome to NP, Raquel. Look forward to getting your assistance.
Do you plan to add the internal BTC wallets for NP members? Is it possible to implement?
For example (the one of possible scenarios), I want to receive my Bodis earnings in BTC directly to my Epik account/wallet...
We can do that already today with our Masterbucks API. I have proposed that exact arrangement before to Parklogic and Bodis, etc. It has yet to be implemented from their side but we have the capability and we would even give them a rebate, e.g. 5 cents on the dollar so that it actually saves them money versus paying out PayPal. Win-win-win. Please encourage your parking provider to do that.
As for BTC, soon Masterbucks will also let you hold BTC balances. We do already run our own BTC pay server. We also are able to hold BTC balances for customers but it is not yet part of the Masterbucks dashboard. A big upgrade is coming there.
In case not aware, your Epik login also works at Masterbucks.com.
On this page please add the possibility to test SMS delivery BEFORE 2FA will be actually enabled...
Because ~1.5 years ago (you should remember) I activated it but then wasn't able to log in due to lack of SMS from your system to my Ukrainian mobile... So I don't want such adventures again...
p.s. No SMS issues for me with Google, Dynadot, GoDaddy and Namecheap etc. - they are delivered successfully...
In case not aware, we will be upgrading our SMS vendor to Twilio next week to address issues with spotty SMS delivery to some international markets The contract is signed and engineering is doing the integration now. Noted on the test SMS. Google Authenticator is a reliable alternative and popular for Epik customers.
Same here. Though I tried it less than a week ago. Rob tells me there's an upgrade coming soon that should make it work. Fingers crossed.
Edit - he beat me to it!
Welcome, Raquel. I hope you find Epik as great from the inside as I and others do from the outside.
I can guarantee Epik is amazing inside and out, Rob has a team of super hardworking and friendly people that make Epik so... Epik!
@Rob Monster, what are you doing as regards displaying other domain names owned by the same person on a landing page. Are we going to have that feature anytime soon?
Yes, coming soon -- personal landing pages with just your domains and featured domains. @Ala Dadan
In the meantime, you can already set up your own branded marketplace domains here:
You can also add cross-selling text to any of your SSL landers, e.g. scroll down here:
The below the fold content is completely customizable. Some people use it to promote other related domains, e.g. here as guy has a network and is hoping to sell the whole network:
He did a basic job there. If you do it this way, I would use the table-building feature and make the links clickable (and SEO-followable).
There are some people, including in Nigeria, who are becoming very expert at customizing these SSL landers. They are welcome to share their work. I imagine that some of them could do freelance work to set these up with enhanced SEO.
The above two domain names is an eye opener. Never thought of it that way.
The last paragraph got my attention. I'm off to work!
you should talk to @ThatNameGuy
I see some folks making effective use of Twitter to promote their listings.
Here is one:
I think it can be enhanced a bit with more specific hash-tags for the logical target buyer. Feel free to tag us with @epikdotcom.
Here is one I did recently:
I definitely think wise to experiment aggressively with Twitter mentions that link to these dedicated landers.
of course, you @Rob Monster like it when they promote epik at twitter too
but if that is effective marketing?
for you yes
but for the domain?
only time will tell
I find it to be particularly effective during industry trade shows. Look up the trade showCalendar for the industry events for the domain you want to sell and then tag the tradeshow event name with their hash tag in your Tweet. It works. You’re welcome.
domain examples and sales price when it work
would be more convincing
Hey, @Rob Monster, a Spaniard here. Just a brief note to let you know the Spanish version of the lander has some minor mistakes and a bit of confusing wording -things like verb forms, which are a bit complex in Spanish-. Overall it gives a kind of automated translation feeling.
PM me if you want some details about it, would be glad to lend a hand there if you want
As you know, at Epik we don't report client sales, but since you are being professional thorn in my side, you probably leave me no choice but to create a new MEGA-THREAD about the social media topic in specific, where we can discuss these matters and collectively enlighten each other.
However, the best example I know of is when I was at the National Restaurant Association Expo in Chicago 2 years ago, and someone wanted to sell a premium restaurant-related .COM. I Tweeted about it being in play, and tagged the event organizer and their event hashtag and immediately got multiple qualified inquiries.
So, yes, I do know that the method works for leveraging established communities and tapping influencers who are constantly looking for stuff to Retweet. I do think these landers need to be "Make Offer" for it to work since a $ price on the lander will look like a money grab whereas Make Offer looks more innocent.
More to come on this topic -- but likely in a stand-alone thread.
Another possible bug?
When I tried testing a change in price on a domain with installments it shows the wrong price in the installment box. Cannot force it back to price as shown in top.
BIN is $500
Payment plan shows $200 no matter what I change.
Separate names with a comma.
