Why do you need a domain name in your Network Marketing business?

Actually, a domain name is a must for any business. The first reason why you need a domain name is that gives you recognition. It gives you uniqueness and separates you from the pack. It can make a lot easier to find you online and it's going to show that you are serious about your business.

A domain name is what people type in the browser box (that rectangle where you type "www.....com"). For example, google.com, yahoo.com, blogger.com, are all domain names. A good domain name is going to stick in your prospects' minds and it can minimize misspellings.

Maybe your company gave you a website. But usually is something like "www.yourcompany.com/you". With your own domain name you can have your own name in the browser and redirect that address you your company's. See for example what happens when you type "www.angelicaried.com" . See that? I redirected my domain name to my blog and before I did to The 7 Great Lies of Network Marketing. You can do that when you buy any domain. I also bought another during the weekend that is going to be different. Come back to see what I'm doing with that new domain.

As your business grows and your Internet strategy lifts from the ground, you'll see that you will want more domains. But for now don't get overwhelmed and don't be afraid. They cost about $10 a year. If you want hosting (what allows you to have content, like building your own website) and more services, it's going to cost more.

The two services I've used are Orderyourname.com and GoDaddy.com. They are very well known and trustful. Just trust me on this one and start with your own name. Your Network Marketing business will benefit from it in the long run.
