Again, your own domain name is extremely valuable. It can serve as your own product or brand name on internet.
Let's do brainstorming for your domain name. Here are some pointers in choosing your domain name:
1). Choose a name which reflects and promotes your business.
2). Choose names that are catchy phrases. Why? they are easy for people to remember, therefore easier to identify you with. But they are also a great investment. Had you or I registered a catchy domain name like ' bingo.com ' we would have been retired very rich. That name was sold at auction
for a few million dollars, and it cost less than $100 to register it for 2 years.
3). Register names which are Keyword rich. This can greatly improve your search engine ranking, simply be using keywords in your domain name. 4). How about your own name, it is unique to you.
5). Of course, if you currently have a domain with one of shorter 23 character or less, or a .net, .org, by all means register a new longer keyword loaded name. Now you can register a domain name with up to 67 characters. It is reported that there are more searches for .com, that any other.
Before registering your domain name you will need to check it's availability in 'whois.' You can do so here: http://www.building-your-internet-presence.com
Now, with having your domain, there are many options for building your web site. There are pre-designed domain web sites, saving lots of money and time over custom built ones. They allow you to add your own ideas, pictures or links to your current business and/or program. But, you may choose to have one custom designed. Both of these services can be obtained at a very reasonable cost. You can find more information on that here: http://www.building-your-internet-presence.com/services.htm
With over 80 million Internet surfers on Web each day, it is inevitable, all serious entrepreneurs will need a domain web site. It is reported that there are 50,000 domain names being registered each and every day. That's over 1,500,000 per month and growing.
How many of those could you sell while more effectively promoting your current business/program? While at it, why not sell Web site services? Everyone coming on Internet with any intentions of making it big and staying course will be in need of these same services too.
