If you’ve already dreamed up a name for your home staging business but are nowhere close to building a website for it, you should still purchase your company name and your given name as domain names if they’re available.
In fact, whether or not the domain name is available is often a deciding factor in what someone decides to name their company today.
Having the right home staging domain name for your home staging business is very important.
Consider these tips:
- Choose a name that is easy to remember
- Find a name that is tightly associated with your home staging business, by including your company name or slogan.
- Ensure your name is easy to spell
- Try saying your name out loud, is it easy to hear or recognized? For example, if there’s a silent letter some people hearing your name might not realize what it is. This is a problem over the phone and in media interviews where you risk having the name spelled wrong which makes you difficult to find.
A domain isn’t very expensive, it can cost as low as $10 to secure a domain name for your home staging business that hasn’t been claimed yet, but if someone else ends up buying the name you’re thinking of before you do, they could charge a handsome fee to transfer the domain name to you.
One popular place to purchase domain names is www.GoDaddy.com although there are countless others. Go find one (or more if you haven’t finalized your desired name) now for your business, haul out your credit card and make a sound $10 investment in getting your home staging business started.
