Why should I have my own domain name?What is wrong with my gmail? Why should I not use my aol.com?
We get asked these questions a lot. Whether you own an existing business or an idea for a start up, you need a strong online presence. Your online presence is nothing different than your shop window but online. It does not look professional when you have an email address firstname.lastname@example.org instead of email@example.com on your shop window or back of the car.
- Benefits of a strong domain name
The first thing a potential customer would do when searching for a product or service is conducting a web search, and if your domain name is relatively easy to find and has content related for those products or services you greatly increase your chances for a sale or visit to your shop.
- Stand out with a unique domain name
When you meet people at a party, and they introduce themselves you listen to their name. As you move on the fifth person, their names fly out of your memory. The names that you remember are the ones that are unique and seem to match the person that shook your hand. Your domain name is as important for standing out in a crowd within your industry. Without the right domain name, you run the risk of becoming drowned in today’s busy marketing. The goal is to pick a name that is unique and/or close to your business or service.
- Make sure you pick a domain name to remember!
If nobody remembers how to type your domain name, you may have created a domain name that is too unique. The easier it is to type your domain name, the more it will stick in the mind of your potential customers. This also counts for your business name. Sometimes it’s as simple as just using your business name, but sometimes that might work against you. Domain names like thebesthairdresserintownluckyhairdresser.co.uk are simply too long while luckyhairdresser.co.uk will be remembered and easy to follow.
