Happy Veteran's Day - Thank you

For All Those Who Served
Veteran's Day falls on November 11 for a good reason many do not know.  November 11th is the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice, which ended the World War I hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany in 1918.

On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 an armistice between Germany and the Allied nations came into effect.  And, on the following November 11, 1919, Armistice Day was commemorated for the first time.  President Wilson proclaimed the day should be “filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory”.

Thank a Veteran and help those that are returning from combat.  You can get involved at any level, from volunteering at your local VA hospital to helping the family of a Veteran.  Do something positive, be a part of the solution for the real heroes.


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, specifically 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.


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.

EMD's - Exact Match Domains

EMD - Exact Match DomainsExact Matching Domain Names

The most valuable domain names are exact matching domain names.  An EMD is the perfect match to the business that you're in or the traffic you would like to attract.  The value of these domains are not only investment grade, they are the key to your brand protection going forward.  There has been several articles on Forbes.com by Michael Gargiulo the CEO at VPN.com about domain name valuations.

Adding my 2 cents, the future is now and it's all about the digital side of your business.  Get an exact matching domain name that suits your market, only buy a .com extension and make sure your site works seamlessly on mobile devices.

Here's a few very strong EMD's that I have for sale:
