NTES’s Portal business’s rebirth – part 2 – Cooperate Email

This is the second part of a 3 part series on what NTES is doing to rejuvenate its portal business. Part 1 of this article can be found here:

From the following article :

The 2nd thing NTES will do is to monetize its email business. NTES has virtually monopolized the email service in China. But they had never really trying to monetize this service. On 3/25/2009, they are starting a new service for companies. They will provide enterprise email account. They will guarantee the email in this service.

This service will also try to intercept spam emails. Any company that uses Netease’s service will be compensated if there are any lost emails or in-sufficient spam blocking. NTES will set aside $10M rmb this year for compensation.

Companies signed up with NTES will also receive other services including bigger email capacity, email virus protection, and email monitoring.

In a separate article indicating the dominating position of NTES in emails, Netease’s Email users exceeds 300 million

From the following article,

Only 10% of China’s cooperation has its own email system (compare with 60% outside of China). Therefore, this can potentially be a lucrative business.

I like to idea of investing in high quality real estate investment trusts that invest in brick ands mortar buildings I would favor well run reits in developing countries like china and India over europe. Not only do you get an annual dividend that increases usually ever year but you also get the benifit of the increasing value of the reits brick and mortar buildings over time. And well selected real estate could very well out perform stocks. Another possitive factor is a hedge against inflation rents generally increase over time along with the property values of the reits real estate holdings.

I have never regarded banks' insurance companies' financial services companies as real busineses. All they do is recycle money.
