Video: Developing Domain Names Into Brands: Episode #1

October 10, 2011 in News

In the first of a monthly series of educational videos on iGoldRush, Morgan Linton brings his expertise to iGoldRush visitors by providing the basics on how to turn a domain name into a mini site, an informational site, an online brand and eventually a flourishing and profitable business. Over the next 10+ minutes you will learn about the type of software to use, tips, tricks and what to avoid in creating your online brand.

In this video, you will learn about the three different categories of domain development:

  • Mini-Site – A mini-site is a great place to start when you begin developing domains from parked pages. These are small, 5-10 page sites that provide more value to visitors than parked pages and can begin to get indexed by search engines for primary keywords. In this segment, get basic seo tips, learn how to set up an easy backend, find out when and how often to post, and learn how to set simple, realistic goals to turn your parked page into a successful mini-site.
  • Full-scale Information Sites – Once you’ve passed the mini-site threshold, it’s time to take your domain development to the next scale with a full-scale information site, which is a great platform to start getting your brand known. In this segment, you’ll learn how these types of sites can become an authority within their niche, what type of content to include, and how to grow your authority and awareness.
  • Full-scale Online brands – Once you’ve mastered the mini-site and full-scale informational site, you’re ready to provide a service to your visitors and turn your site into a full-scale online brand. In this segment you’ll learn how brands learn which products/services to provide their customers.

Domain development is not about getting lucky, but rather taking the time, doing the research, and creating something truly unique that becomes well-respected within your niche.

Now that you’ve learned the basics about developing your domain names into brands, check out Episode #2: How to Install WordPress for tips on how to start developing your domains!
