Helping You to Succeed: Domain

Creating a Great Domain Name

If you want to have an online presence, then you will need to have your own website.

The first step is having the great domain name:

DO have your domain name communicate what you do... for example laser-traffic.com says that this site is all about traffic (getting online customers) quickly (like a laser).

Look around... most domain names of the best online companies tell what the company does.
DO keep your domain name short: no more than three words or characters: laser-traffic is in three parts: 2 words, one character (-).

If a name you want is already taken, you can add a dash (-) to make it your own. That is how I got laser-traffic.com.

DO NOT use your own name unless you are a celebrity or an expert in your field as personal names are not easily remembered.

Give your domain name careful thought as - like your own name - you will be living with it for the rest of your life online.

Benefits of a Domain Name

Domain names give you...

1- Your own online presence: If you want to advertize your business online with Google, Facebook, Bing, you have to have your own website to give you credibility online.

2- Your own brand recognition: Your domain name is a key part of your brand. People will remember a GOOD domain name.

3- Your own email address: Those who have an email address of @hotmail.com, @gmail.com, @aol.com, or other free email domain... look like newbies (those who are new/inexperienced) online to more experienced users.

4- Your own targeted audience: Your site will rank better on search engines or in social media if your domain name is relevant to the keywords (more on that later) for your niche. The better you rank on search engines or in social media, the sooner your potential and existing customers will find you and the more you can add to your own email list.

Planning a Domain Name

So how do you come up with your own domain name?

More importantly how do you come up with one that your customers are likely to search for?

Simple, to find out what your target audience is looking for... use a
"Keyword Tool". Such tools will help you to craft the best possible domain name for your particular niche.

Why? Every online search is an expression of your customer's needs, wants, and interests. When you analyze the results of such searches, you can better customise your domain name to better reflect the interests of your customers.

If the domain name you want is already taken then there are some alternatives:

1- Alteration: If you can put a dash between the words and come up with a unique name, that is a great alternative.

2- Extension: If you cannot get a .com, then you could try another extension like .net, .biz, .org, .us, .int, .co, etc.

3- Broker: Some of the best domain names are held by brokers for sale. These can be a real bargain IF they are exactly what you need for your business.
