Things To Consider When Choosing A Domain Name

  • Brainstorm your top 5 keywords - choose keywords that are relevant to your business
  • Choose a unique name - don't confuse your audience with another site
  • Choose .com addresses first - .com sites receive more traffic than .net or .org sites
  • Choose a name that is easy to type - this will ensure that your site will be found easier and faster
  • Choose a name that is easy to remember - you want people to talk about your site, and in doing so, pass the name along to others
  • Keep it short - long domain names are harder to type out, and people are bound to leave out a letter or two in the process
  • Don't make people guess what you do - choose a name that is relevant to your business
  • Avoid copyright infringement - make sure you're not breaking any copyright rules in your domain name
  • Avoid hyphens and numbers - this will make your domain hard to remember, and also hard to verbalize

Is Your Site Getting The Traffic You Hoped For?

One of the most important tasks of any site owner is getting traffic to their site. A high percentage of site traffic means people are looking for a company like yours specifically, and if they can't find you then your site has become irrelevant to the internet.

If you feel like your site has become irrelevant, here are a few things you can do to bring those rankings back up to speed:

  1. SEO - Search Engine Optimization takes some time to do, but in the end you'll reap the benefits greatly if done right. SEO includes adding relevant keywords to your site, specific titles to each page, and a content specific description to every page on your site.  Sitemaps and search engine submissions are also very helpful in this process and necessary if you want the keywords to be searched on a more regular basis.
  2. Use Facebook, Twitter & LinkedIn - These social networking sites have proven to be extremely important in the advertising world. In fact, some people don't even have an actual website, but solely use these networks to promote their businesses. (Although I wouldn't recommend it.) After you set up these accounts, always remember to put links on your site to these accounts and vice versa.

  3. Frequent Site Updates - Audiences like to see fresh content when returning to your site. If you haven't already, add a blog to your site and update it monthly, weekly or even daily if time permits. Blogs are great for promotions, new items, upcoming events, contests, or anything that you think will draw people to your site.  Make sure your blog is linked to your Facebook account. If done right, everytime you post a blog it will post the blog to your Facebook profile, as well.
  4. Set Up A Google Adwords Campaign - If you have your keywords in place and want to bring more people to your site, these Google Ads will do the trick! With the right key phrases directed towards your site, you will bring in more traffic than ever. You set your own budget, and Google will not surpass that amount.
  5. Give Away A Product Through a Contest - People like receiving things for free. There's no question about it. Use this as a tool to bring people to your site, and you'll get them every time.
  6. Promote Your Site For Free - Use classified ads and directory sites to promote your site. The more submissions and links you have out there, the more likely your site is to be found.
  7. Add Website URL To ALL Printed Materials - This is a given, but just a reminder.  ALWAYS add your website address to ALL printed materials, i.e. business cards, brochures, menus, promotional products, even items you are giving away in your contests.
  8. Put Links To Your Site In Email Signatures - Think about the number of emails you send out a day. This is the number of times your website could potentially be visited. Add your logo and/or another cool graphic with the link to your site for added appeal.
  9. Send Out Frequent Email Blasts - Monthly newsletters are great refreshers to let your customers know that you're still around. Promote your specials, introduce a new product, announce an upcoming event, or any other special news you can use to "get the word out".
