I am setting up a website for myself. I have started doing some work with friends about how to build an online presence for their small businesses.
I am setting up a website for myself explaining how it works as it will be easier than repeating myself a million times to anyone who asks me.
What shall I call it? I want it to be jargon free. It is for normal people, who run small local businesses, but want an internet presence. I'm not bothered about the name being a keyword.
All my ideas have been painfully lame and devastatingly girly.
Lol - traffic hunter would make an excellent name.... for a huge dog that likes chasing cars
Everything comes out as a variation of online and fairy or angel - which conjures images of a gay p0rn site.
Help me people please. I can do marketing - I do not do names!
The way I am working is pretty informal so I dont want it to be pompous or even too business like. But I don't just want it to be my name either.
There are a range of things you could name it, just try to think of a catchy name like HowToDoOnlineBusinessLikeMe.com
or because the above one was too long, try something like spaceygracey.com (or your real name) and just direct people to a specific page that explains all.
I've got the domain name waynetully.com that redirects to my art blog and I've found I can direct traffic from an email list or through any blog comments that I get....much easier!
I would go for "freeinternetmarketingtips.com" or "freeinternetmarketingcourse.com" "freeinternetmarketinghelp.com"
Even though you stated that you are not bothered about keywords and want the name to be jargon-free, you may want to choose a set of phrases that people search for when they are looking for help on how to market their small business online.
Except of course you want to create the website for only your friends who you can refer to the site by giving them your link. Then you can use a URL that rarely gets found by people looking in search engines for the help you offer.
I know that "Free Internet Marketing Tips" sounds like jargon but that's what most people search for when they are looking for such information.
Hope this helps
At this stage I'm really not bothered about getting people to find me in search engines. It will mostly be friends of friends who will access it from my facebook page. I know I could use my real name but if you had my surname you wouldn't want to use it either.
Think I may revert to my maiden name for business purposes. That's allowed in the UK - so I will be going by two names.....like a spy.....or a nutter with split personality.
In that case, branding with your name is most appropriate. Even when you use your maiden name as the domain name, you can still make keyword targeted inner pages that could have high ranking in search, that is if you decide to go full commercial in the future
