How to Have Right Words For Your Domain

Now, I really know how tiring and frustrating it can really be when it comes to choosing a proper domain name.

You are just so excited to register. Adrenalin rushing, heart pumping, blood filling your head.. til you click on GoDaddy and stare blankly on the domain name to request. Paralyzed by.. a blank. Just a blank mind, a blank stare & high blood pressure.

Besides the fact that a lot of us are rather dry on our creative juices, choosing a name must be done with extreme care & concern. And words that actual sell!

I am sure a number of us would avoid These words don't sell. They repel potential customers. Even if your product was ethical, legitimate and credible, a stupid like that, well, don't sales anytime soon!

After all, the name you choose must reflect professionalism and your business. You don't want to have and promote kids crafts online.

So, care & concern. Professionalism and business focus.

Here's a great guide for everyone, including creative nuts, to inspire when thinking about right words that actuall sell!

How to Start an Online Business

from wikiHow - The How to Manual That You Can Edit
An online business is a business that is run via the internet. These businesses may include retailing, outsourcing of services, reselling of items and others. Finding an online business that you can make money from may require you to create a website that advertises your business and items, registering yourself on certain websites or forums where you can advertise your services and finding clients from the rather huge world of the internet.



Choose Your Focus
  1. Identify your area of expertise. Do you have any information that others will benefit from?
  2. Write down some keywords that you will be using on your website and check out the demand for your keywords using the Overture tool of Yahoo.
  3. Use to determine the Google supply(the number of websites that are built around those keywords) for your keywords.
  4. Determine profitability of your keywords using the formula 'Demand number/Supply number'.
  5. There are a lot of businesses you can start on the internet and the first thing you should establish is what kind of business you think you can successfully run. There are outsourcing businesses that offer manpower for a whole lot of online jobs, like writing jobs, research jobs, accounting jobs and other web site related work. If you are a programmer who specializes in optimizing websites, an SEO business could be your online business of choice.
  6. Knowing what you can easily offer people online and what business you can successfully run and make money out of is the first step in running an online business. After determining this, you will need to come up with a plan for the execution of your business idea. You may start with hiring a programmer to create your website for you or you can create your own website if you are capable of doing so. You will also need to find hosting for your website as well as to register your domain name. If your site requires additional manpower, you may need to look for the people who will be working with and for you, like for those businesses that offer outsourced workers. You cannot put up a site that offers outsourced work and workers without the people who are capable of doing the services you are advertising. You will also need to establish a way for your future clients to communicate with you. While you can use a free email provider for this, it would be more professional for you to have an email connected with your domain or website.
Create an Online Presence
  1. Build a content website for your profitable keywords which overdelivers to the user that you are targeting. Remember an Internet user is looking for information and not sales talk. So use your content to show her your expertise in your area. Write your content in such a way that your user stays and browses through your site instead of hitting the 'back' button. Talk to your user through your content and pre-sell to them the product you want to sell - information/product/your offline business etc. Pre-selling using content builds confidence in your user.
  2. Build traffic to your website using simple free-to-use tools.
  3. Monetize your site. Use Google Adsense and/or Yahoo Publisher Network on your site to monetze. Follow some easy to follow tips given by google for posting adsense ads on your site, that will make you money.
Finance your Endeavor
  1. Research and select an online payment processing service so that you can provide your customers with a wide array of payment options, such as credit card,e-wallets PayPal, or even bank transfers.
  2. Use other ways of monetizing as well if you are not an entrepreneur.
  1. Find a mentor, the person who has a good success system to follow!
  2. Find a direct sales model. It's the fastest way to break-even.


  • Find a business system that has been proven successful.
  • A thing that needs to be ironed out for your online business is your billing service. While there are businesses that may bill their clients directly after a contract has been agreed upon and signed and these bills are paid for through checks that are deposited into the service provider's bank account, there are some clients who require a certain online billing system for them to pay for the services they have contracted. You may need to register with a billing system like Paypal for your online business to make billing and payment easier and less of a hassle to you and your clients.
  • Putting up an online business may be easy or hard, depending upon whether you did your research well and laid down all the groundwork before you began. You can make money out of an online business if you execute the necessary steps and do not miss out on some of the essentials that are needed for an online business to succeed.


  • Watch out for website hosting and building services that do not handhold you through the process of building an e-commerce website.
  • Keep in mind that it is a business. Learn from your failures but also the success of others. Be a willing and eager student.
  • Never give out your money to anyone to show you how to make money. Please be very cautious before spending a penny.

Things You'll Need

  • A Website with a domain name that you can acquire from a website hosting service.
  • A good training system to follow with step by step details.
  • It is much more profitable to outsource when you are beginning to start an internet business. This will insure that you have experts doing the work for you instead of you trying to figure it all out.

3 Ways To Fund Your Internet Marketing Business

Maverick Wealth Wave™

Perhaps you are thinking of needing some money about building your major online income. I know I have before. Spending money to get your internet business started and to market it requires some money.

You can make some quick money online fast. However, it will by no means be the kind of income you may be really dreaming about. Still, with these 3 ways, you can get a head start to fund your internet business. And still get to head happily to your local Starbucks store.

The 3 ways you can get started without investing a dime are: writing articles, taking up surveys and posting on forums.

1. Writing articles.

If you are into writing, this is a great way to start. You can start writing articles and get paid for them by top websites from $3 to $40. However, most of the time the bids placed on your articles are usually much less than $10.

Still, if you can churn out several articles a day, it is most definitely a great source of income. And you will be surprised just how easy it can really be.

2. Taking surveys.

For a fraction of your time & little effort, you get paid by survey websites. Why do these websites pay you to complete surveys? Information is power!

Companies want the scoop on their products and services from consumers that they are willing to pay loads of cash. And the top websites out there would pay anywhere from $1 to a possible $100.

Some offer around $0.80 on for their guaranteed surveys. May not be much, however for 30 days, you make almost $30. Considering the little effort, it’s not bad at all. Plus, you still participate in other surveys and still get paid on top of that.

Now, what if writing articles or spending time in front of the computer clicking away survey forms is not really your cuppa joe, there is still one other way.

3. Posting on forums

If you are able to just type in a minimum of 12 words or so each time, you are likely to get paid $0.10. And that’s what top websites pay for just type & clicking away.

12 words for $0.10 is really good money when you consider just how long (or quick) it takes to type & post 12 words. How many posts do you think you are able to post in 1 minute? Or in 1 hour?

Let’s do some simple accounting (not my favorite subject, but for the sake money!) – say you are truly, truly lazy and make only 60 post in 1 hour. That’s $6. What if you spend just 4 hours a day doing that? A nice $24 per day! In a month, you would make a sweet $720.

Enough for you to fund your internet business and still have enough to save for your PS3.

Yes, there are tons of ways to make some money quickly online; however, these are just tried and tested and far more credible. They may not be exactly the massive income approach but it will give you enough cash for a head start.
