I traded cubical surfing several years back for life on an island in Southeast Asia. I had gotten pretty good at building small, informative websites on a topic, getting them to rank well in search engines like Google and Bing, then enjoying a little semi-passive income from them. I made many sites like this, and if the money wasn’t enough to live on in the United States it was definitely enough to live well in a warm place and never run out of rice. I was working way too hard for stuff I didn’t need, like I was afraid of something when I really wasn’t afraid at all…well, if you’re interested you can read more about it here at WageFreedom.com.
Branding and SEO
A funny thing happened on the way to ‘early retirement’, though. I never stopped examining websites with regard to how well-optimized they are for ranking highly in search engines. It’s just something I like to do. I’ve helped friends and acquaintances fix their on-page SEO (search engine optimization), and given plenty of advice to people on how to choose an optimized domain name for a business they are about to start. With CatchyBusinessNames.net I set out to create a small business out of something I enjoy and at which I have some proficiency–probably the same things that are motivating you to take action and create a business yourself. Here specifically is how I can help you:
Most existing websites have plenty of “low hanging” deficiencies just begging to be fixed or improved upon, and most often first among them is–you guessed it–the domain name itself. Too many business owners proceed enthusiastically building businesses, and the websites that function to market these businesses online, without understanding how critical their domain name is to ranking well in search engines. In this regard, a site’s URL is up there with the number of backlinks to your site and the age of the domain (along with dozens of other factors).
It’s certainly possible to market your business online without giving much thought to the URL, to simply have it match your catchy, brandable name. However, I’d contend that most small, locally-oriented businesses could benefit by leveraging SEO and the right keywords in their domain instead. By getting it right from the beginning you will proactively market your company online, attracting visitors earlier and establishing a web presence worthy of the time and money you’ll put into your new company.
I’m offering you the benefit of the knowledge I have earned from years of informal education and trial and error, using the same tools and methods I’ve always used. Let me help you establish the online component of your business properly, by ensuring that the domain upon which it rests actively markets your business.
