I am a commercial real estate broker from Southern California, with a focus on retail. I love marketing and all things about promoting my business. I am starting this new blog series to share business tips and tricks I am learning, which have helped me along my career path. I also want to give a shout out to my amazing company, Progressive Real Estate Partners for all they do for me! ~Roxy
It’s Your Real Estate
Whether you are a brick and mortar, or virtual business. If you simply have an online Etsy store or you are an Amazon reseller, you must purchase a domain. The cost of a domain can start at around $12.00 a year, and helps you to control your traffic and make your life easier when marketing your product or service.
If you are a commercial real estate broker, for instance, instead of dealing with the time and expense of creating a website, forward it to an existing page. For example, roxannek.com, is the domain I am using for commercial real estate. When I am on the phone with a client or tenant rep and I want them to see my listings, instead of having them go to the main website, and click several times, this domain instantly brings them to a page where the listings I am working on can be easily and quickly viewed.
The sky is the limit on what you can do with your own domain name. Landing pages, use it for professional email and eventually create your own site and blog. The important thing is that names are a land grab. If you think of an awesome name that suits your business, grab that name and use the same name for your social media handles too.The important thing is that names are a land grab.
