First step to building your brand
Choosing the right domain name is one of the most important things that you can do to strengthen your brand.
Creating Your Online Brand
Branding Your Business
The first section of your website provides the platform for you to build your brand by informing your visitors of who you are and what your business is about.
- Home Page
- Landing Page
- About Page
- Contact Page
These pages connect you with your customer and set you apart from the other web sites on the Internet that provide the same product or service.
Using media to show a visual representation of your product and service is very important. When presenting a product show clear photos of the product and the product in use.
Services are represented best when displayed with a photo of the service being performed. Adding video is also an excellent way to promote your product and service through your website.
Your Domain Name
When choosing your domain name keep in mind that you will have to use the domain name in all your print as well as your online advertisements. If your business has a long name you may want to consider using an abbreviation to make the domain name short, memorable, and easy to type into a browser.
Creating the Perfect Domain Name
Sometimes it is difficult to come up with the perfect domain name for your business. In many cases the exact name of the business is too long or not available and if that is the case you may have to come up with something creative that reflect your product or service as opposed to the business name itself.
