    I was browsing through the NF Blog yesterday looking for the interview you guys did with David awhile back for this thread, and I stumbled across your old post about domain parking with NetFleet from back in January:

    http://www.netfleet.com.au/blog/domain-parking/domain-parking-with-netfleet/

    It got me wondering how it has gone over the last 9 months, ie do you guys have any data on what sort of conversion rates (in terms of offers produce) those pages have?

    With parking revenues not being the greatest for AU domains I figured it is definitely worth considering just parking them with NF rather than looking for ad clicks.

    Yeah I've often wondered that in general. Esp if, like me, 80% of your rev comes from 20% of domains.

    Might make sense just to push a sale with the 80% of the remaining domains (esp those that get lots impressions but low CTR)

    We've had 1400 enquiries come through the parked pages to date which is superb.

    To be honest, I don't know how that has subsequently converted. Our current setup is difficult to report on actually.

    We will run a quick survey next month to see if any enquiries were helpful, and resulted in a sale - but currently I don't have the stats.

    Wow 1400 over 9 months sounds like quite a lot!

    Do you know how many pageviews that was from?

    Also 1400 enquiries... there must be a lot of people using the service?

    My thinking exactly.

    I've added a few to this service recently. Very pleased with the way the holder presents. They appeared fairly quickly but today neither of the two are showing the NF parking page. Both DNS are still NF???

    No, not on chrome or firefox.

    WAIT .....

    I just changed pc's and now I can see?

    I do block some of the Adobe software on the other pc - could this cause the issue?

    Now that the NF Catalogue is generating commissions for NF will developing and further optimising these parked pages?

    Also have you guys started tracking the performance of these parked pages since the introduction of the new NF system?

    Do you guys have any data on these parking pages yet?

    Or does anyone on these forums have their entire portfolio (or a good chunk) parked with netfleet and can comment on effectiveness?

    And have you guys ever thought about integrating a video into your parked pages featuring the benefits of buying a quality domain?

    Parked pages slated for development July/August 2013 - a lot of love coming their way.

    Videos slated for August - we are attracting so many new retail buyers into the site which is great. Much of the development will revolve around making the process incredibly streamlined, easy to use and will better explain the processes in simple language and video.

    Definitely "watch this space".

    Awesome to hear!

    And if you need any suggestions of value propositions to mention in the videos or testimonials of success stories be sure to post a thread here on DNT - I'm sure we could come up with dozens of important "selling points" to help with the brain storming for video scripting.

    Same goes for parking page design - a lot of members here including myself have experience with conversion rate optimisation that could be worth starting a discussion about.

    I haven't been watching this space sorry. How is Netfleet's commitment to development coming along? Looking forward to seeing those new landing pages.

    True. We get more communication from Flight MH370 than we do from Netfleet

    With @Jonathan Gleeson arrival at NetFleet I thought I would bump this thread back up to both offer some food for thought and restart the conversation on some of these past NetFleet projects that stalled.

    Would love to hear people's thoughts or if it is in NetFleet's development pipeline.
