Subvert the System: Price Change coming to .TV Domain Names


The band Cinderella explains best our loss of cheap TV domains

It was the great American poets Cinderella that said “Don’t Know What You Got (Until It’s Gone).” Today we experience that very real pain as the long-time low price of .TV domain names is coming to an end. The fact is that .TV domains are short, memorable, have a ton of availability, and they’ve always sold for a higher price. Come 2015 TV domain name registrations will be $35.00. HOWEVER we do know a little trick that will make you the happiest person on the ‘net. Or the .TV. Because you can skip high renewal fees and keep your .TV domain at 10.99/yr for ten years. All you need to do is register for ten years. You can do that in your name.com shopping cart as seen below:

Or for at least 10 years.

So before you’re forced to croon like a grief-stricken glam band, get your .TV now at name...

Creating conversational content that builds a community


conversational-content

One of the most difficult things to do in content marketing is create content that people are actually interested in. Being not boring may be difficult, but when you’re successfully not boring, you have the ability to create likable content that makes people want to comment, share, and do whatever they can to interact with your content and your brand.

When you create content that people enjoy, you’re more easily able to insert yourself into the conversation of a relevant group of people. When you’re part of relevant conversation, readers who are sharing your content are effectively endorsing your brand within your target community. There’s nothing more powerful for growing your brand than peer-to-peer sharing of your branded content.
