Marketing lesson for the day.  Sometimes it

is good to take action and move forward to

get it going…though sometimes it might kick

you in the rear.

 

The good thing though is that I did include an

alternate link and explanation in case the first

attempt did not work.

 

Sometimes when you purchase a domain and

try to forward it (Which is where you fill in a

website that you want your domain to go to

instead when someone clicks on it) there is

a lag of potentially up to 48 hours for it to

work.

 

Usually it happens within minutes or a couple

hours.  I am not sure if I had not filled it in

correctly on GoDaddy or what, but it finally

works.

 

The question is why would I want to do this?

 

The answer for me really lies in appearance.

 

I showed you the other link as well which goes

to the same page and uses the WordPress

Pretty Link Lite plugin to make my affiliate

link look more appealing.

 

Who wants to look at a long series of letters

and numbers to click on.

 

Who wants to easily have their code changed

so that someone else get credt…or no one at

all.

 

Not only does this look more appealing, but in

my case I was able to grab a domain name that

is related to a hugely popular series of books and

videos for “idiots” (not that we really think you

are idiots, but I hope you get the deal)

 

The other reason is it is a hell of a lot easier for

me to verbally tell someone or mention it in a

video and people WILL remember something

like “Video For Idiots dot com”

 

Another reason for having an easy to remember

domain and one related to the product you are

promoting is that you can leave it forwarded

to the product or even make your own review

website of the product with YOUR OWN OPT-IN

BOX on the page, which builds your list and then

re-directs to the product.

 

One note on this last reason though is that

people might be curious why they are opting

in to one page, being redirected to another

and then being asked to opt in again…Somewhat

redundant they might think.

 

Providing a short video in regards to the tips they

will be receiving from you in your in box instantly

as well as your partnership with the product author

will help them understand where they are going.

 

If you are using the product yourself and can show

a demo in the video of how it has benefitted you

and your clients, this is like gold and they won’t

be able to get to the next screen fast enough.

 

Well, enough  about forwarding domains for now.

 

As I just picked this one up, I am not sure what

I will do about it…Maybe I could even flip it for

a pretty penny because it has such a great ring

to it.

 

In the mean time…be sure you go check out the

video yourself now, to see how this can help.

GoDaddy Black Friday 5 Dollar Domain Sale

GoDaddy Black Friday Sale where you can get 5 dollar domain names. If you have been thinkng about getting online, now is the time to take that next step and pick up your domain name.


Black Friday Special! $5.00 .COMs from GoDaddy.com

With almost 100 domain names to my account at GoDaddy, you could say I am somewhat addicted to using this domain seller.

If you are in any way looking to get yourself online, or if you have a business and do not have a website yet, I am not sure what you have been waiting for. Perhaps this is just the sale for you to get yourself going.

Lets say you have a few domain names (websites) you would like to have. I would highly suggest you get one with your name if possible and then another one with a product specific ring to it. This way you can separate yourself from your business in case you decide to change niches, but your main site remains and continues to build.

I would also suggest trying to stick with the “.com” ending as these are recognized and remembered a lot easier.

When you go though their website for this sale, they will let you pick up to 5 domains, though they are limiting the number of people who take the offer (they are a business) just like stores that will run out of merchandise. So this is the perfect weekend to move forward with all those thoughts that have gone through your head in getting yourself online.

After you get your domains, you will want to be able to host them and run a system where you can stay in touch with readers and customers. I highly suggest using GVO (which is where I have most of my sites). If you look up at the top right of this page you will see a place to enter your contact information. Go ahead and sign up and see how I am able to stay in touch with you to help you out in your business growth. This is referred to as an autoresponder service and it comes included with their service.

Web Hosting and Domain Names-Helping You Take Control of Branding Your Business in Online Overload

Whether you are working to improve your business or have a fun and personal website about yourself, taking the initiative to host it so that you can control it is so much more critical than allowing some other person to run the format/layout of the site. Sites like Facebook, Myspace and Twitter are great formats to put your content, but until you obtain your own domain, any plans to become financially successful are dramatically diminished due to the lack of specific features and benefits on these sites.

For starters, you do not get your own personalized email with these programs.   Nothing works greater than to have your own “FirstLastName@YourDomain.com.” It is possible if you are one of the few with a random name to get your name with an aol, gmail, yahoo etc. account, but these do not show the world any relevant qualities or hints about the person or what they are involved in. Often you end up with something that is a combination of letters and numbers when you use these free email accounts,  which might not help in branding your business one bit! If you want to keep that special one you had many years ago when email really bloomed and you signed up for many accounts with it, there may be a benefit to keeping it.  Taking the initiative to get your own site will allow you to brand yourself and get more people to read your emails as it also becomes more personal. For example, if you send an email to DaveGardner@MagneticSponsors.com, I will be sure to write you back. This email is attached to my website, MagneticSponsors.com. This might get more email conversions than using info@ or support@, though these accounts can be established as well when you begin to define your business better.

Next, when you get your own domain and hosting you have an option of many features and benefits that may include, but are not limited to
cPanel, Fantastico (WordPress and Forums), autoresponders, opt-in forms, email forwarders, site templates, video hosting, conference rooms and more depending on the program or web hosting company you choose. Here is a little breakdown of the benefits of each feature:

1.  cPanel: This allows you total control over your website from editing to loading files through an FTP platform quickly, setting up WordPress, email accounts and more

2.  Fantastico: Allows you to set up your WordPress blog and set up forums related to a topic of interest of the site. These can be places to put advertisements, videos, reviews of products and more.

3. Autoresponders:  when someone comes to your site, you want to keep them coming or at least be able to keep them updated to what is happening with the business of program. These programs allow you to send messages or posts to anyone who opted or signed in to your list.

4. Opt-in:  forms a fill in the blank application that brings a customer or viewer to your autoresponder and then to a site, video, program of choice. Double opt-ins are beneficial in that they guarantee you are not being spammed.  When you send out a message, you may get many returned if the person did not go to their “real” email address and confirm that they were a “real” person accepting messages from you. If you want to see one at work, check out DownforceGuitar.com, which is another site of mine.

5.  Email:   Forwarders These help to streamline your websites.  You might have many sites and not want to log into every cPanel and email account each day. If you have them all forwarded to the same generic email you can save time when you do get a message from that account.

6.  Site:  templates many people do not know how to or care to use html code.
Having ready made templates can save time and easily get your web site up. You can edit as needed in the html editor of cPanel in a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) method.

7.  Video Hosting:  I know Youtube is popular, but a site like this forces people to see other videos that they may find offensive, which is one of the main reasons why as a Science teacher, I do not have access to this site in school. You could embed the code for the video into a premade template (see #6 above) but you still have the Youtube links there and logos. Certain plans allow for video uploading and producing.

8.  Conference Rooms:  We all do not have an endless flow of money to get us around the world at a moments notice to have a meeting with like minded individuals. Getting in front of a computer with a video capabilities allow you to easily meet someone from the other side of the world to host a meeting. These may range from a few seats to thousands of seats that are available for people to log into and be part of the experience. Think Webinars!

When it comes to branding, you want to get a domain name that is easy to remember or looks appealing if you send someone a link or it appears in an ad. As an example, some of my “.coms” are MagneticSponsors, BasicLacrosse, MyGVOTrial, YourReviewGuru, and TheDavidGardner which are all live and consistently updated (some newer than others and therefore have less content). Others I have in the works are MyResourceKit and MyStupidMistake. For the most part, I have been able to set up cPanel accounts for all of these with the respective “DaveGardner@_______________.com” email address.

There are many options out there for catchy domain names and you might want to grab it up before someone else does.  Even if you do not put any effort into setting up the site, you can always do what is called Cash Parking,where the host may put ads onto your site (assuming people stumbled on it by accident and could see Pay Per Click, or PPC ads from a variety of sources. For example, one I have set up at BadLacrosse where you might see everything from Lacrosse the sport, to Buick Lacrosse to Lacrosse Wisconsin! When people click the ad, instead of you getting charged, someone else does and you actually make a commission of the fee.

There are many programs and hosting companies out there and it can be very hard to choose which one is best for you and your business. I personally have gone with GoDaddy for most of my domain name purchases, though I have only set up 1 site with them. Most of my sites are hosted through GVO. I highly suggest checking out both of their offers.

I have also included some of the other major host providers out there below. You may want to do a little comparison shopping to see which one will be the best to suit your businesses needs. While some of your sites might only be one page that captures an email address and leads the person elsewhere, others might have some high tech software like Butterfly Marketing Software installed and may need a bigger bandwidth and more pages as it has viral friend generators, affiliate sales options, merchant linking software and more.

As you now have one of my many email address above, please drop me a message to let me know how things work out for you or if you need assistance with any of these programs that you are going to purchase!
