An online presence is important to the success of your business. Most of the consumers search online for products or services. If you don’t have a business domain name & website, that means people are searching for — and not finding — your business online.
The first step to build your online presence is securing a business domain name.
Here’s what a domain name can do for your business:
Accessibility : Your actual physical store might open its doors from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., but a domain name is available 24/7. You can use your domain name to build a website that provides important information, such as your store hours, location, phone number and descriptions and images of your products and services. You can even connect with your customers personally through a blog on your website.
Brand Protection : If you don’t register a domain name and build a website for your business, someone else might do. In fact, we recommend registering multiple domain names to ensure your brand protection.
Professional Email : Did you know that when you register a domain name, you can create custom professional email addresses? For example, if your site is Example.com, then you can create email addresses like Info@Example.com and Sales@Example.com. Having your email address at your business name is much more professional that using a free mail service.
Promotion : Even if you aren’t selling products and services online, you can use a domain name to promote your brick-and-mortar business. For example, you can direct customers to Example.com. On your website, you can advertise upcoming sales and events, offer special discounts or printable coupons, and highlight what’s new.
Online Sales : To capitalize on the growing number of online shoppers, consider selling some of your products and services online. It’s the perfect way to expand your business nationally or globally. For details, see Selling Products Online.
