    Please keep the content relevant to purpose of this thread....

    This is about Epik promos not about who is giving less than Epik!

    I am saying because it is becoming conversation of off topic.

    Thanks,
    Ravi

    I knoooow.

    Where's the discount domain support programs to turn to during these discountless days?

    I think @STUART MALOFF has a great .com for one...
    And inspired by this epik thread, and well, my entire domaining career...

    ... I picked up DomainersAnonymous.org.

    Before any of you big registrars ask about sponsorship opportunities, be aware of tradition #7 of alcoholics anonymous.

    Before your discounters get in a frenzy, don't worry, pretty sure I purchased it on a discount, as .Orgs are still @ $7.49 per reg at Epik.

    Now that, that's out of the way....

    ... Where art thou discount transfer whales?

    So... what I hear you saying is we might have more success taking a different approach?

    Perhaps maybe we start posting pictures of our newly regged or newly transferred epik domains, in support of epik, and maybe, just maybe, a bunch of minnows can make the splash of a whale?

    I would say, a whale like splash = X amount of registrations / transfers, but truth be told I don't know epiks financials, therefore only they know what's best for the company, in knowing when and where they can take loses. So let's leave it open ended, and maybe epik will feel the minnow love hug?

    I'll start... (time stamp of invoice: December 14th @ 10:00 ZULU)

    Going to bump the count to 7 unless there are any objections. See below for missed registered / transferred domains of today reported in this thread.

    Let's hope that Santa (Rob) will have a special gift for us this Christmas ;)

    But meanwhile be happy knowing that if you spend a little extra it goes towards supporting the many of your fellow domainers (and their families) that are now employed at Epik (I don't think that Rob is drawing a salary for himself for the time being).

    Also I believe that if a domain is a potential gem that is worth registering it's not unreasonable to pay a little extra to get it now, and then you can wait for a special sale to do the bulk registration on the rest of your wishlist.

    IMO

    If we each register / transfer one or two at full price, that'll go a long way in making a bigger splash. Right now, we have a splash score of 7.

    Also for those who are selling domains in the four to six figures perhaps they shouldn't mind paying a little extra commission if Rob and other Epik staff have gone out of their way to make the sales possible,

    Everyone has to do their share to keep the wheel moving for the domain Industry, spreading the wealth will help lift everyone up.

    You might have the right idea about a lot of minnows being equal to a whale, but maybe you weren't aware that those fish are jumping out of the water so frantically because the area around the boat is electrified.

    We need to treat the wildlife more humanely.

    We all like discounts and free stuffs, but keep in mind that Epik is not a charity organization where you expect to get deals/discounts throughout the whole year.

    ffske, have some consideration that they have a forever growing team to feed. They will give deals/discounts whenever it's the right time...Some members talk like Epik needs to have discounts/deals for every festive holidays in their countries -_- If that was the case then Epik should be re-named to "EpikCharity.org" and give free Domains to all muppets out there...

    Till then have an awesome Day:laugh:We Love Epik❤

    Ps. "EpikCharity.org" still available for hand reg:laugh:

    FYI: I am a big fan of prefunding as that allows the best pricing when a promo isn't running. They like it because there are no bank/paypal fees taken out on a single or small number of domains when ordered.

    As far a 'whale' issue, it is when they feel like making the same deal for all of us once a whale is going to register.transfer his/her names and they make the whole pricing structure available for a time. Us registering a name one or a few at a time would not help initiate 'whale' pricing.

    I'm sure someone from Epik will confirm or deny what I just posted (or make necessary clarifications). :xf.smile:

    Quick update on deals and promos:

    - We definitely went all out for Black Friday. We are talking hundreds of thousands of dollars of market development budget, i.e. cash spent there across promos and programs.

    - We continue to work closely with the registries to bring awesome deals across all TLDs. For example, we want to bring back $0.99 .CO but there are other TLDs that offer great asymmetric returns when on deal.

    - We continue to invest massively on technology with an accelerating pace of innovation visible throughout 2019 and much more to come in early 2020 in time for NamesCon Austin. I think you will be impressed.

    - We are balancing commitments across service/support, innovation, empowerment programs, loans, and incentives. We are working to be fiscally responsible while helping as many folks as possible.

    - As for loss-making promos, we'll place an emphasis on transfer incentives, especially for loyal customers who are consolidating and using our marketplace to sell, finance, and lease domains.

    - Our commitment going forward is to be a price-leader for domain investors. We make money when you make money, i.e. when you sell or lease to an end-user. Otherwise, we actually lose on domainers.

    For ongoing promos check here:

    https://epik.com/promos

    If there are deals with other registrars that you think Epik should be pursuing, check in with @Sufyan Alani.

    Thanks for choosing Epik, and thanks for being engaged stakeholders in our continued commitment to make the big bigger for everyone. We appreciate it, and are humbled by your high standards for awesomeness.
