We all look for the best way to monetize our traffic, but there’s more than simply paying for clicks – that’s never the whole story.
What happens when the visitor sees the LP and bounces out of there because maybe their not decided or maybe not ready to make a purchase? They leave, that’s what they do.
But some of them will want to come back and either see your LP or they are already ready to buy. This is always a great opportunity to make even more money, as I like to call them ‘residuals’.
This is why it is so important to have a good domain name and to cram it into the visitors head so that they can come back or tell a friend or the such. Typically I’d say stay away from hyphens but sometimes it’s all you can get for a nice memorable domain, even though it does beg the chance that the person with the non-hyphen domain will get a sale out of it. So goes life.
Then again it does put a spin on it to do some SEO so hopefully, you can rank for your domain name if that’s worth it to you.
However, I can’t tell you how many times I have had someone come back and then order. Well worth the price of the domain many times over.
Where To Get Domains
Some people think all registrars are the same. This is not true. Personally, I think GoDaddy sucks and you should never ever use those turds. When you buy or transfer a domain there, or inside their system, you have to let it sit something like 60 fucking days! I have gotten drunk and then went after support because I hate them so very, very much. What else do you do when you find out some domain you just bought from someone else can’t be transfered out of their system? From what I understand it illegal, but I’m not a lawyer, but they need to eat shit and die.
Besides their interface sucks, they charge your for whois protection, you don’t get squat for free. They also like to fuck you if you get a complaint on a domain. There was a thread on WF, about someone getting a complaint and they wanted him to pay something like $200 to resolve it! He couldn’t transfer his domain out or anything. Just fuck them – period. You see how riled up you guys got me?
Where I’m Going Next
Well as my job winds down here, as I work a seasonal job, I don’t plan on getting another regular 9-5er. Fuck that. This week I’ll be trying to go balls deep into a new PPC campaign, and I’ll be doing some WordPress plugin coding. I’ll also be firing up a phpBayPro, hint you can get it 20% off right now so you’ll save $15.
