The Most Important Domain Name You MUST Own
Have You Registered This Domain or
Did Someone Else Get It?
Well, here’s why it matters and
should be an urgent priority!
Whether you are starting a business soon or have no interest in a business, the one thing every woman needs to invest in is the domain (www.WhateverYourName.com) containing her name.
I use the term ‘invest’ rather loosely. Registering ‘your name’ domain name is a $10 to $12 investment for the first year and each year you renew it.
Ok, you have your business domain name.
Your own name as a domain name is
even more important.
It’s an asset you must own.
Many years ago I realized that you must register and own your name domain name or someone else can and likely will snatch it.
Naw, you say! Just google your name and see how many name alikes you have in the world. If anyone else registers it, it’s gone forever.
I registered my name as a domain name many years ago. When I share this domain name with anyone, I capitalize the start of 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. If you doubt whether you will ever need it, I cover this in detail in my videos about starting an online business.
Locking in the exact name you want (YOUR NAME) is urgent asap so another person can’t take it. Think ahead! Many people have similar if not the same name. You may think your name is unique enough that no one has a similar or matching name. WRONG! 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. Never bother to register anything but the “.com” version.
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!
I want to make sure you know the critical importance of having your own unique domain name plus your business domain name and how to position your domains to work in tandem for super visibility to grow your business.
