Starting a new home business is tremendously exciting!
You have finally selected the product or service that aligns with your personal vision.
You have chosen the vehicle that will help to accomplish your goals and dreams.
Now that you have made your initial investment, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and get to work marketing your business.
You may have received a few tools from your company including marketing materials and your sponsor or mentor may have told you to make a list of your 100 closest friends and family members that you can expose your new business to.
One of the most important tools in your toolbox is your company replicated website. This is generally the portal that will be used to process your orders as well as display information about your product or service. This site will generally have a long web address that includes your company site name along with your personal identifier that codes the website directly to you.
There’s a huge problem with this web address that can cost you lots of money if you don’t fix it
That web address is simply too darn long! Imagine you come into contact with a person that you are talking to about your awesome business and they are showing interest. They ask where can they get more information…how likely do you think it is that they will remember http://mynewcompanyname.com/repid873987487 ??
Even if they remember it…there is a high likelihood that they will enter that long name incorrectly.
85% of people will only try a website twice before they give up or get distracted and started surfing for something else.
How much business will you lose out on trying to share that long and complicated web address?
Your sponsor may not have ever shared this information with you but they honestly may not have thought of it.
You don’t know what you don’t know!
There is a very simple way to correct this issue.
All you will need here is a personalized domain name.
