I have two tips for you today…
FIRST TIP If you want to communicate by email with your clients, get your list together, and send out an email BEFORE JULY 1st (2014), asking people if they want to receive email from you.I personally recommend Mailchimp as a tool, but there are many other systems out that for this purpose. Just note that if you want to send out emails after July 1st, you need permission to do so before July 1st.
SECOND TIP Domains. Web addresses. www dot. Don’t get scammed. Don’t let your domain expire. Don’t buy domains needlessly.
Some people think that they can improve their website’s chances of being found on google simply by buying domains that are filled with keywords. This is untrue. You will be wasting your money if you go on a domain shopping spree.
Don’t let your domain expire, or let your contact information associated with your domain fall out of date.Your website or email may end up offline, and a little preemptive reassurance that everything is in working order could prevent those disasters!
Go to http://who.is and type in your website address.
1. Check that the contact info is current (especially your email address)
2. Check the expiry date (and diarize it!)
3. Note who the domain registrar is, and find your login info (then save it!)
And if all else fails, or if this seems daunting, email me and I’ll help.
Don’t fall for this scam. If you own a domain, there’s an excellent chance that you’ve received paper mail, reminding you to renew your domain.What they’re actually offering is a domain transfer – which provides no benefit, and costs you about twice as much as you would otherwise pay. Got one of these? Just shred it.
