Online Advertising Tools

Online advertising made easy Here's a company I discovered while looking for some keyword analysis on my GeorgiaBeachHomes.com website, Wordstream.

Not only does Wordstream offer keyword advice and optimization, they have a suite of utilities to tune up your marketing campaigns. Wordstream is a Google and Facebook Premier Partner leading the industry in search optimization.

I like the design of their wesite too and they have a wealth of information for those of you just getting started with online advertising. Spend a little time reading though the Pay Per Click University and learn about bid management and conversion tracking.


Tips For Getting The Best Domain Name

Get the best domain name From and article on WinningWP.com about getting the best domain name possible by Karol K, he provides 22 essentials tips to help those new to the industry.  There's only one other tip I would add to this post, it's well worth it to buy a great domain name.  Memorability and validity make your business standout.  Not everyone can afford a million dollar domain, but there's a reason why they are worth those kind of numbers, specific site traffic and being the brand authority.

Remember you are building a brand when you build your website, and there's no point to building all your collateral advertising around a sub par domain name.


Saluda Shoals - Best Americana/Country Artist

Saluda Shoals Band I had the unexpected pleasure of seeing and hearing the duo of Henri Gates and Cassie Verhaeghe live at a small club in Mt. Pleasant, SC last night.  Charleston has a lot of great local bands, but these two are top talent.  They played some their new music that they haven't even recorded yet, and their new song "All You Got" is sure to be a hit record.  If you're looking for rising stars in Americana/Country music, look no further than their website SaludaShoalsBand.com

Check out this song "Fall" and look for their new releases coming soon.  Wouldn't be surprised to hear these two become international stars. Was nice meeting them on the ground floor.  All the best!


End Daylight Savings Time

Daylight Savings Time From and article on NBC Dallas - Fort Worth I agree, let's put and end to springing forward and falling back.  And, let's make everyone happy by splitting the difference.  Here's what I propose, one time fall back only a 1/2 hour (or spring ahead a half hour depending on the time of year) and never do it again.

It may even stimulate the economy with all the programming work adjusting applications that compensate for these time changes, like Y2K all over again.


Escrow for Domain Names

Escrow.com
Escrow for Domain Names and a lot more.

I recently sold a domain name to a foreign buyer that wasn't familiar with the escrow process.   It's really just as simple as depicted in the image below, but with their unfamiliarity, I can see how they could be skeptical, so I walked them through the whole process.

Escrow.com

A couple of items not represented in the images are number one, make sure your buyer chooses the right email address for your transaction.   Most people have at least a work and personal email address.  It's always good to ask before you start your transaction.  The second concern is for the seller.  Sometimes when a buyer receives their goods they don't always follow up to verify that they have possession.  You can rest assured that Escrow.com can verify the domain name transfer without any action by the buyer, it just takes a few day longer.

Escrow.com has been in the business for over 25 years and they began with handling domain name transactions.  They truly are the industry leader.

They provide services for just about every other transaction as well payment plans.

Investing in Domain Names

DomainingI found 2 articles on Domaining.com that I thought I would pass along to share.  I follow all of these blogs and they help me stay in tune with the pulse of the industry.   

Domain Investing
This is a TED talk about the Carvertise.com story.   From the business owner's perspective and a savvy domain owner.  Not going to spoil it, just enjoy the presentation.

Domain Sales

The second article comes from Morgan Linton's blog about the frequency of 6 and 7 figure domain name sales.  Large sales are more common than you think and often under reported.


After Memorial Day is usually a slower season, but not so this year.  Sales are up, and heating up.
Check out the rest of domain names I have for sale here.

The Seven Spiritual Laws Of Success

Seven Spiritual Laws of SuccessOr The Spiritual Laws of the Universe

I just had to make one more post to pass along.  I would like to share this book with everyone.  In the book Deepak Chopra expresses with the simplicity of nature our connection and mechanisms for a closer relationship with divinity.  It truly is a life altering book that will change more than your perspective.  Thank you Deepak!

"You are what your deep, driving desire is.
 As your desire is, so is your will.
 As your will is, so is your deed.
 As your deed is, so is your destiny."
          - Brihadaranyaka Upanishad IV.4.5

Developing Domain Names

BHKO.comBusy Developing Domain Names

This will be my last post for awhile.  About a year ago I formed BHKO LLC with a focus on vacation rentals and real estate sales.  We have several niche websites launching over the next few months each with its own regional area of inclusion.  What distinguishes BHKO from the competition is our custom URL's or custom names that allow homeowners to choose a name for their property and they can use that link to pass to potential renters or for sales prospects.

We only cost $148 per year with NO commissions!  So for about $12 dollars per month (tax deductible) you can advertise your property.  Use us solely or in conjunction with your existing property management company or link to their system.  We have a full reservation system available and you can share your property with just a click.  Refer 10 of your friends and your renewal is free!

Simply the best value in advertising your property!
