Websites generating greater customer growth and revenue.

Amidst big brands such as Amazon, Walmart, and the list goes on, small businesses account for quite a bit of market share.

Google estimates that there are approximately 115 million small businesses in the world while the United States of Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy estimates that there are 28.8 million businesses in the US alone.

Of course, there’s much discussion to be had pertaining to what specific attributes must be realized to qualify as a small business. But I’m not writing to debate those finer points.

With both numbers on the rise annually, one has to wonder how small businesses are able to affordably differentiate themselves, especially when considering small businesses with a strict local or hyper-local presence.

How many oil change, dog grooming, nail salon and other local-centric business services do you pass daily going to and fro?

If you’re like me, then you’re likely surrounded by a growing number of small businesses, varying in name, peddling similar services in hopes that a potential customer remembers their business when the need arises.

Hoping that customers remember your business in a sea of competitive small businesses offerings is not a sound plan for existing or growing local market share.

But here’s something to ponder. Would you be interested in uniquely differentiating your business from the competition using an emoji domain? Continue reading

Once again, I’m up early and starting my day. I typically don’t post on Sundays, but encountered an interesting thing to note in regards to emoji domains.

When new to domaining, there can often be a tendency to emotionally bid and buy expired domain names.

If familiar with expired domain auctions, specifically the GoDaddy aftermarket platform, then it’s likely you’ve been tempted to purchase closeout or buy-it-now domains for cheap.

You peruse the list and spot a desirable expired domain name that looks too good to be true.

You question yourself. How did this domain manage to slip through the cracks and off the radar of daily domain bidders in expired auction without a single bid?

The stars must have aligned for this expired domain and I to be united sings the voices in your head.

You buy the expired domain name thinking of the massive returns you’ll soon realize by developing or flipping.

Truth be told, we all have likely been down the path only to drop and not renew those domain gems we thought to have made us a fortune.

Don’t lose hope though. Today, I’m sharing with you a bit of insight to help you spot trending expiring domains that are undervalued. Continue reading

We’re back and kicking off the week with World Emoji Day. And you know what that means, right?

It’s time to lose our minds crazy using emoji as we celebrate our new found communication path of the future today.

If you didn’t know, everybody young, old, and in between use emoji to freely express the good, bad, and ugly parts of themselves!

And if you don’t believe that, then maybe the following convinces you otherwise: Continue reading

Shouts of praise and joyous screams of “Live long .ws” can be heard around the world just in time for World Emoji Day.

The general public has spoken and crowned .ws as King of Emoji Domain extensions.

There’s no other domain extension that can or will ever compete with .ws for emoji domains. 😱

And just how do we know this? “We Smile”, and simply check the poll results. 😂

As @DomainKing quite often says, “Numbers don’t lie, people do!”

I was sitting with a customer yesterday discussing various re-branding options for her business.

She currently has an events planning centric domain presence for her company, yet her service offering has morphed into focused child care services for well-to-do families.

As we discussed whether or not her current domain name was the best brand representation, we brainstormed new domain possibilities.

Not in front of my laptop at the time of our conversation, I reached for my ole trusty mobile device and instinctively opened the GoDaddy iOS application. Continue reading

If you’re new to the emoji domain conversation, then buckle up your seatbelt as you have a bit of catching up to do.

Yes, those little funny faces and quirky gestures used in text messages, blogs, social media, email and more have now found a home in web urls and domain names.

By the title of this post, you’re likely thinking I’m a bit off my rocker to question which extension is most popular to register emoji domains.

After all, the no-brainer answer when registering your next web presence is always .com, right? Continue reading
