Hi Everyone! I want to start today’s blog about where to start when you’re stuck. We’ve all been there! You have it all mapped out in your head, you’re ready to begin your online journey. You open up your laptop, or sit down at your desk with excitement. And then there it is. The fear and confusion that grips you when you’re staring at a blank screen! Believe it or not, it doesn’t just happen to newbies. Experienced marketers often come against the wall from time to time. When this happens to you, take a deep breath and start thinking of what you want to accomplish today. Just today. And maybe even just this hour.
If you’re wondering how to choose a domain name for a website, you’ll be happy to know that it’s not all that complicated. A few common sense rules will however make a big difference in a good domain and a bad one. I’ve purchased tons of domain names in the course of my internet marketing career, and I’ve learned a thing or two along the way. I’ve come up with 5 basic steps for finding a great domain name. So let’s get started.
Basic Rule #1: Make It Short
Short domain names are easy to type. and easy to remember. It’s as basic as it gets, but which do you think is easier to get to: shoes.com, or buygreatshoes.com? It’s a matter of simplicity. With that said, many if not most of the super short domain names are taken by now, so you might have to go for a slightly longer domain name than you would like. This brings me to the next rule.
Giving up work to be a stay-at-home mom (SAHM) or a stay-at-home Dad (SAHD) is often a tough, but very much a personal decision. There is no right or wrong answer here, but there are a lot of considerations that will help you in making this very important decision.
When I was pregnant with my first child, I was working full-time, but I didn’t have a long-term plan as to whether I would stay at my job. My job at that time was in the non-profit sector and it paid very little, and my job was pretty stressful on top of things. While we needed the money, my salary wasn’t all that much, so my husband and I decided that it would be a good idea to stay at home after my daughter was born. Once my precious girl was born, I knew that I had made the right decision for me. I emphasize the “for me” part, because everyone is different and has different priorities. I would never judge another mom for choosing to go back to work.
Choosing the best web hosting service is an important step when setting up your blog or website for the first time. There are many services to choose from, but there are some that are well-known and worth your purchase.There are come considerations to explore when shopping around.
What you need depends on what kind of website you plan to have. If you want to set up a blog, there’s a good chance you’ll be using WordPress, so make sure the web hosting company you choose supports WordPress and offers easy installation of WP. If you want to have an e-commerce website, then make sure whatever software you intend to use is also supported by your choice of hosting company.
