What?? You haven’t reserved your name on the internet?
Well, here’s why it matters and
should be an urgent priority!
Whether you are thinking of starting a business soon or have no interest in a business or online presence right now, the one thing that every woman needs to invest in is the domain (www.WhateverYourName.com) containing her name.
I use the term ‘invest’ rather loosely. Reserving your name as a domain name costs around $10 to $12 for the first year and about the same for each year you renew it.
You have a business domain name but also need
your own name as a domain name.
It’s an asset you must own.
Many years ago I realized that you must own your own domain name and image or someone else can snatch it.
I registered my name as a domain name many years ago. When I share this domain name with anyone, I capitalize my names for easy to read emphasis, www.MaureenBeaucond.com.
I am not using or promoting this website yet, but I have set it live to begin organic exposure. I put up a “Coming Soon” page on my website to display and direct anyone who may land there to visit my main website. I use the SeedProd free plugin for WordPress to make the Coming Soon page. It doesn’t take any tech skills beyond the skill it takes to create a Word or Google doc.
Thinking way ahead, if you ever sell your business or blog the domain name will be included in the sale. I firmly believe every person, online entrepreneur or not, needs to brand her image and name. This is insurance for anyone in a 9 to 5 job too.
Why is registering the domain
for your personal name an
urgent step to take NOW ?
Locking in the exact name you want is urgent asap so another person can’t take it. Think ahead! Many people have similar if not the same name. Do a Google search of your name if you have doubts.
Most business names you may want to use are independent of your personal name. As soon as you have a specific business name in mind, you should reserve it by registering that domain or multiple domains if there are several good names you don’t want to lose out on.
I believe every potential writer, blogger or entrepreneur should think about visibility. To be found online you should register and own a business name with a relevant connection to the focus of your writing, blog, business or audience niche. Do it as soon as you know the focus of your business.
DO NOT REGISTER ANY DOMAINS except the “.com” version. Many other variations of names are available, such as .net or .biz or .anything else and buying any of them is a BIG waste of money!
