Internet's Best Marketing Articles

cover of e-book, "Internet's Best Marketing Articles"

February 2011 was a big month for me. I learned much about marketing, advertising and the importance of a domain name. I found out many Internet users search by domain or blog name. Having both of these, or at least one, from a marketing point of view gives one a promotional edge. Most businesses know how crucial this is regarding gaining customers.

Desirous of having a domain name for my newly formed online bookstore, Alicia Harrell’s Bookstore, founded the beginning of February, 2011, I seriously looked into this matter. My research brought many surprises including how pricey most of the companies that offer domain names and domain services are. The majority insist on one paying for 2 years at a time which adds up and can end up costing $60 or more. I mostly saw the more and cringed as these 2 year plans (package deals) did not meet my budgetary requirements.

DomainPros.com was the affordable website I chose to get my certified domain name www.aliciaharrellsbookstore.com. This website was recommended by my bookstore‘s supplier who was very encouraging and helpful. Going with DomainPros.com has turned out to be a blessing, bigger than expected.

One feature I fell in love with is their email service. DomanPros.com has an email service I found inexpensive, useful, easy to use and receive emails from others, plus beneficial for my bookstore (listed on my website for customer use). It is an email I can also post on advertisements. For any business this is crucial; having a reliable email address with domain name and service gives a professionalism most customers notice.

DomainPros.com offers several package deals varying in price that include privacy settings, security, certification for domain name, email service, domain names, web hosting, marketing tools, and build a website service. These packages range in price from $11.99 per year for a .com domain name on up. It depends upon what you want in your package that reflects the needs of your domain or domain name. They have reasonable pricing for .co, .info, .net, .me and .org too.

I chose a .com for my domain name because my bookstore is commercial and that is what .com means, a commercial entity listed online. What I liked best about DomainPros.com was the ability to renew my package annually which for me is easier to budget. I highly recommend DomainPros.com; especially for the budget conscience.

Looking forward to March and sharing more with you,

Alicia Rose
