choosing your website name

When you're just getting started with your own business then setting up a website will be one of the first and most important things you do.

One of the first and most important things you'll do when you're setting up your website, is choosing your website name.

I often think it's a bit like naming a child.  It can be great fun trying out all  the different names, laughing at the silly ones, perhaps doodling some of your favourites on a piece of paper to see how they look and sound.  But actually making a decision? Well that's the tough part! It's a big commitment after all! It can be an even more daunting prospect if you're not sure what you need to consider when you're making your choice.  Soon-to-be-parents know to look out for names that might cause problems for their baby - dodgy initials or names that don't go well with your surname and that sort of thing.  But what pitfalls do you need to look out for when you're naming your website? 

In this week's Business Class Monday, I'll be telling you 3 things you should keep in mind when you're choosing a name for your website.  If you can't wait to know what they are then here's a spoiler...

1 - Keep your name short, simple and easy to spell (and remember!)

2 - Wherever possible, go with .com

3 - ALWAYS check your chosen name is available before you jump ahead and start printing your business cards ;)​

For all the juicy details then catch the video below and then you'll be fully prepped and able to enjoy the fun of choosing your website name without the stress.
