I want to share another alternative web hosting provider I use sparingly when flipping and developing geo service domains.
If you’re a regular reader or visitor, then I bet you’re wondering why I’m mentioning Bluehost.
After all, you’re likely wondering how Bluehost fits into my geo service domain puzzle when you know I use and highly recommend both GoDaddy and HostGator as primary and second web host providers respectively. Continue reading
For me when it comes to web hosting, HostGator tends to always be lurking somewhere in the top 5 or top 10 web hosting providers that are recommended because of performance.
And when I’m in need of a secondary web host to GoDaddy, my primary web hosting, HostGator’s flexibility, ease of use, and reliable performance meets my need for hosting geo domaining websites.
Again, I’m not transacting to the volume of an Amazon or Facebook, so I don’t need the complex technologies or service level agreements they use for simply flipping and developing geo service domain websites.
In fact, most of my geo domaining websites tend to very simple and nominal in terms of their content, functionality, and dependence upon reliable performance and uptime. Continue reading
When it comes to managing my growing portfolio of domain names, I recommend and personally use GoDaddy. They’ve come quite a long way since 1997.
Some will argue that they still have a ways to go in certain UI/UX areas. I’ve been with GoDaddy as long as I can remember.

We’re kicking of this year with a bang, releasing a MUST-READ ebook topic: Local SEO Marketing.
Yes, there’s an abyss of local SEO marketing content covering a vast number of options for small businesses to locally market services and products.
The list is long, including marketing and advertising options such as Google, Facebook, Twitter, Yelp, Yellow Pages, Yodle, CitySearch, MerchantCircle, Door-to-Door hangers, and many more…
But I’m not covering those topics in this book. I’m sharing and showing you another less traveled road that only a few are dare to travel.
That’s right, I’ve worked quite hard over the last year researching and experimenting with a variety of techniques and strategies to command local market share for a range of businesses.
And I wrote an ebook to share with you and the world about what I learned in my quest to understand local SEO marketing for myself and others.
In short, getting more revenue and customers in a local market can be quite the challenge for the every day small business and it’s owner (that’s you and me too!).
After all, I’ve been there with my own businesses, and executing local SEO marketing is not an easy nut to crack. Why, you ask? Continue reading
As 2015 comes to an end, it’s been quite a year for Kickstart Commerce pertaining to SEO and Domaining.
The 2015 recap…
I’ve help quite a few customers determine that SEO MUST be aligned to the needs of their business as well as their overall marketing strategy.
I’ve successfully taught, coached and consulted quite a customers on what it means to always be continuously content marketing with an education slant and not selling.
I’ve also fired a few customers who only wanted to focus on buying reviews, buying links, or create content based solely on keyword focus in an attempt to sell and not educate.
Although I’m working with less clients, my stress levels are down, yet my overall value proposition has increased right along with profitability.
Where we’re headed in 2016…
I’m looking forward to 2016 and focusing less on SEO and more on domaining. I’ll still accept new SEO relationships with customers, but I’ll be more intentional with who I am called to serve and how to serve their business in the most effective manner long term.
That said, with my new found time in serving less customers, you’ll notice that there will be quite more posts about domaining in 2016. You may have already noticed with daily domain auction posts being made within the last week or so.
Nevertheless, the domain industry overall is growing at quite a rapid pace. Namescon, a growing domaining conference, is right around the corner is expecting nearly 1500 domain investors (aka domainers) to attend.
With the domain industry growing, I’m devoting more time to educating brands not only about SEO and content marketing, but adding to my repertoire the value-add services of educating customers about domain investing at a personal level for themselves as well as a professional level for their business.
With the new domain extensions becoming more relevant over the next couple of years, the time is right for me to transition with the vast market growth of the domain industry itself.
As we enter 2016, I want to leave you with my top 10 predictions for where I see both SEO and Domaining headed. At the end of 2016, we’ll see how spot on I was or was not. That said, here are my 2016 predictions… Continue reading
