Twitter, FourSquare VC Says "Be Your Own Bee-Yotch"

There’s some offensive language here, but sometimes (and I’m sorry mom) it can be effective. Fred Wilson, whose mere presence is every startup company’s fantasy, offers his advice on whether to use Twitter, Facebook or Google Plus.

You know the Smash Summit has good content when the lighting is awful, the sound even worse, and people are still riveted by the speakers. (Not to call you out Microsoft, but this was your building and your Internet didn’t even work. I was kind of hoping for a giant paperclip to come and help me.)

What we should learn from the Crock Pot Girls

Let me be the first to try and share the success of an Internet Sensation. This time it’s not a kid high on nitrous oxide or an interesting squirrel. This time there’s meat, real honest-to-gosh meat. It’s the Crock Pot Girls. They are three mothers, Allyson, Jenna, and Nicole who, as their Facebook page says, “decided here was a great way us moms can exchange crock pot recipes.” Sounds pretty darn simple, and that should be the main lesson. KISS: Keep It Simple…Silly (Moms loathe the word “stupid.”)

So they go about this straightforward project and in less than ten days score half a million “likes” and so many wall posts they have to beg people to behave and follow the rules. What are the rules? Well, simple: share recipes. Now that’s about as Abigail Adams as you can get. This old-fashioned way of connecting people spun up in an electronic forum. And by golly they have 300,000 more fans since I checked the site last night. Soon they’ll be on Good Morning America, and we’ll be watching from our piles of press releases and flowcharts and wondering, “How?”

crock pot girlsSince it has to do with food we at Name.com wanted to be a part of it. As the Community Evangelist I contacted the CPGs to see if we could provide them with a domain and a website that we could monetize and search engine optimize. Our customers really think we’ve got something with our PageZen web builder and SEO Tutor, and we’re very fond of them. But that really should be the litmus test: are you portraying your product even close to something that with a flip of a switch can feed your family for a week?

There’s another lesson: give people something they want. We’ve all been serenaded by the sales gurus hammering their fists and berating us about benefits: “Share the benefits of your product!” But the Crock Pot Girls have one up on that. Their product is a benefit with benefits. People want food. They want lots of it, and they want it to appear magically. The Crock Pot is all that. You put something in it, you turn it on, and then you do something else with yourself. All you need is a recipe. In come the CPGs. Throw in the fact that the economy is weak and I’m surprised our ladies of the ladle haven’t been propelled to Congress.

At Name.com we’d love to hear that we’re the Crock Pot Girls of domains and website building. We want it to be quick, easy and convenient, and as satisfying as a pound of pulled pork. We want to put you in that place where you can be any level of web IQ and still get your ideas and products on a website that ranks big with SEO. Actually, I think there should be some kind of buzzword introduced here. Something about a “Crock Pot” business plan (not to be confused with “Crackpot”) where you sit alone with the slow cooker and brainstorm how close you can get to its paragon of goodness. If you don’t get all the way there, then don’t worry. It’s hard to touch moms with vats of food.

Name.com Emerges from Rigorous One-Stopification Process

The Name.com dev team stepped out into the daylight and blinked at the big, big world. It was time for a shower and something other than processed cheese and potato chips. It was also time for something else: a celebration. A good party was in store because Name.com’s One Stopification was complete.

A developer’s diet. Exercise is also recommended.

Our staff of intrepid tech-addled engineers have grappled the once painful process of building a website and cocooned it into the amazing and easy-to-use PageZen web builder. They tore down the ominous mountain of Search Engine Optimization and downsized it to the simple, step-by-step SEO Tutor.

When you go to Name.com, you are now greeted with everything you need to build and optimize, monetize and securitize the website you need. But there’s more. We’re working on quick and easy tutorials for all our quick and easy services. That’s doubly quick and easy.

With our One Stopification complete, you’ll be able to build your own website in minutes. Tweak it how you’d like. Add what you like. Add PayPal, social media, videos, your own unique twists, colors, designs and propel your profits into the webosphere with all the benefits about you and your business.

name domains hosting security websites

What One Stopification looks like.

We have the security, the SSL certificates, the domain names and the easy web builder with all the accessories. So you’re covered for small business, blogging and anything from domains to websites to ranking on the top search engines.

SEO Tutor starts at 36 bucks a month and you can do it yourself. Call that expensive SEO consultant and tell him you’re using the money you save to go to Mexico.

But we will still be here, One Stopified and ready with the same great customer support. It’s nice that some things never change.

Hey mate, .ASIA domains are now just $6.99 at Name.com.

Where you find .ASIA

Asia is huge.

We all grew up learning that Asia is the largest continent. Now, with the .ASIA domain including Australia, it’s even bigger. Even before they acquired the Down Under, Asia held 60% of the worlds population, and included 90 different languages. I mean this is a booming, vibrant and diversified culture that’s going to go on about its day without you unless you can identify yourself with the .Asia community. What I’m talking about here is business. Lots of business. Get the .ASIA domain for just $6.99 and get started.

To register with .ASIA, at least one domain contact (Registrant, Administrative, Technical, or Billing) associated with the domain name must be a legal entity in the .Asia region. Here’s the Charter Eligibility Requirement.
