How To Choose A Good Domain Name For Your New Website

domain nameIf you’re selecting a primary domain name for your new website I don’t recommend you get anything less than a domain name with a .com extension. And if you can, you should pick a domain name that describes exactly what  problem your website is going to solve.

Unfortunately you’ll most probably find the domain name you want to use is taken.  So an easy way to get around this is to put your name in the domain name.  For example, if you want to get the domain name:

http://www.acnefix.com/

You would find it’s gone.  But the chances are very good that if you put your name in the domain name somewhere you’ll be able to get it.  So you would put something like:

http://www.sarahsacnefix.com

Now you may think that a domain name like that is hard to read.  So whenever you publicize your domain name that has more than one word you would do it like this (capitalize the first letter of each word):

http://www.SarahsAcneFix.com

But here is a word of warning with domain names.  Do not get ones with hyphens in them.

Years ago I was on the radio talking about a product and my website had hyphens in it.  Because of this I did not get much response.  So do not get a domain name with a hyphen in it.

Finally, here’s my three tips for getting a domain name:

1. It must be a .com

2. It should be related to the problem you’re solving

3. Try to make it easy to remember

Ok, with all of that being said, here is the place I recommend you secure your new domain name now: http://www.directnic.com

How To Get Attention With Your Website

Watch this video below to find out how you can get attention for your website.  It’s critical that you know this information otherwise your website will not stand out.  So watch this video now:

Video Summary

If you don’t get attention for what you’re doing then virtually nothing else matters.

But you can’t get attention by offering exactly what everyone else is offering.

Imagine going into the weight loss marketing and your product claims to help people lose weight.  Are you going to get attention with a message like that?  Of course you’re not.

What about going into the opportunity market with a message that says I’m going to help you make money.  Is that going to get you any attention?  Of course it’s not!

In any market you go into or are in you need something very different to capture attention.  Here is a great example of this.

Imagine you’re in the fast food business and you come out with a new burger.

Is that going to capture much attention?

Of course it’s not.

New burger….big deal.

But what about if you had a new burger that didn’t have any bread buns.

Now that’s different.

That’s what KFC did with it’s double down burger.

 

KFC - Double Down Burger

The chicken was the bun’s.

So that’s completely different right?

Did it get attention?

Yes, in a big way.

Here in New Zealand people were talking about this bunless burger coming and being released and then on the day it was released people were lining up out the door to get this new burger.

When did you last hear of that happening for a new burger release?

Now there’s some very smart other elements to this marketing.

1st. Here in New Zealand it had a launch date and there were stories on the news about it coming here.

2nd. It was only available for a limited time…so you’d better get in quick otherwise you’ll miss out.

3rd. It was not trying to be a healthy burger.

It was a bunless burger that had bacon and cheese and who knows what else in it.

So it not only went against convention by having the chicken as the buns it was not trying to be healthy.

You’ll notice every other fast food operation is trying to come up with healthy alternatives and KFC comes out with the Double down burger.

So here’s the big take away for your Internet business. :-)

If you want to get attention then come up with something that is totally the opposite to the accepted norm.

Here’s some examples of this.

If the accepted is that you eat 3 meals a day you come out with a weight loss product that advocates you eating 6 meals a day you’ll get attention.

If everyone says you should eat very little protein and fats you come out with a weight loss product were you tell peopled to basically eat all protein and fats and you’ll get attention.

You would probably recognize products that have used those types of elements in their weight loss marketing.  And I’ve picked on the weight loss market for good reason.  Because it’s probably one of the biggest, most competitive markets there is to make money in.

And everyone knows to lose weight you simply have to eat less and exercise more.

But is a message like that going to get you attention?

Of course it’s not.

But do you think there’s going to be some people producing products and systems in the weight loss market that will be huge sellers this year?

Of course they are.

Why?

Because they’ll have some different message to them.

So take a look at what you’re doing currently and if you want to get some big attention then brainstorm way’s that you can angle your marketing message in a completely contrary way to the accepted norm.

Do that and you’ll get attention and more sales.

Now here’s a bill board I saw that made a joke about this KFC double down burger.   Enjoy that and have a great rest of the day.

Don’t Make This Website Mistake

The other day my wife was on the computer reading something and I happened to look at the screen.  Here is an example of what I saw:

I asked my wife what she was reading and she said “shhhh, I’ll lose my place”.

It’s sad that a person went to quite great lengths of writing something and then they didn’t format it for the visitor.

Do not make that mistake on your website!

When you produce any written work on the Internet it should be in chunks of about 4-5 lines.

This is for readability.

Look, reading online is harder than reading a book so we need to make it as easy as possible for people to read what we’re writing.  And you do that by having short paragraphs.  So remember, use the 4-5 line per paragraph as a general rule.  Also throw in some one liners to mix things up.

Like this! :-)

The Best FREE Targeted Traffic To Your Website

A website is not a business until it gets traffic.  And the absolute best, most ready to buy traffic there is comes from affiliates and joint venture partners.

Website TrafficIf you set up the system right you’ll get loads of traffic to your website for free and it will be people that are pre-sold on your product or service.  You only pay a commission on the sales you make so there is no risk to you.

If you have a product and it’s not part of an affiliate program you need to get it on one ASAP.  I recommend Clickbank for this if you’re selling a digital product.

When I first started out online I setup my own affiliate program by buying an affiliate software program and getting a programmer to install it.  It worked very, very well.  But I ignored Clickbank for a long time and it was a mistake.

I should have duplicated my website and put it on Clickbank.

So again, if you don’t have your product on an affiliate network site like Clickbank (or something like Clickbank) then you need to do that.

Now you need to understand something important.  The MAIN reason someone is going to promote your affiliate product is…

MONEY

So if you’ve got a lead in product that is in the $1 – $99 range, then generally an affiliate is going to promote a product that makes the most money for them.

You need yours to be that product.

A really simple way of doing that is to price your product different than your competition.   If most of your competition is selling $17 ebooks then you should consider selling an ebook for $47.

So if you’ve got a product now that is on an affiliate network consider raising the price and positioning your offer differently so it appears more attractive to big affiliates.
