He wants to start a blog.
He owns free-investment-advice.com
Do you think it is best to set up the blog under his current domain
name which is simply firstname-lastname.com?
Or is it better to have the blog reside at free-investment-advice.com
and then he can make references to firstname-lastname.com and drive
traffic to firstname-lastname.com?
The alternative is to simply set up the blog at firstname-lastname.com
However, the free-investment-advice.com is very marketable from in a
traditional sort of way - in print, in magazines, on bench
Thanks - adivse would be greatly appreciated!
Re: Blog and web site advice
It depends on a lot of things. Is his business registered as
"Firstname-LastName"? Is that how he's listed in the phone book? Is
that how his customers know him? Then that's the domain name he should
be using, also.
Something like free-investment-advice.com will be much harder to
describe to customers ("free hyphen investiment hyphen advice dot com)
and (unless he has a very long name), much harder to type. It also
doesn't have the personal appeal. It does, however, have a much wider
appeal; if he's looking to give free advice to people from all over the
world, it might be better.
As for using a name for a business site - completely wrong in the
investment business. One of the most famous investment sites is run by
Ric Edelman - www.ricedelman.com ("that's rice delman dot com"). It is
very successful for him.
