An Interesting .Land gTLD Encounter

Weekends often fly by when your having fun, especially this past weekend as I attended a Men’s Retreat.

I kicked off this past weekend by getting on the road and heading to T Bar M Camps & Retreats for my home church’s, Mosaic Church Austin, annual Men’s Retreat.

I managed to escape Austin’s nightmarish traffic to head south to New Braunfels, Texas.

In route, I spotted quite a few domains being advertised across various media that I’ll likely write about in the coming weeks and months.

Sharing faith and growing your church using domain names

Although it’s sad to admit, churches are often quite behind when it comes to embracing and harnessing the power of technology to share their faith.

Fortunately, I’m grateful to be an active member of a church in the eclectic city of Austin where only roughly 16% of the population actively attends church.

Our church embraces technology and does a decent job effectively using domains to share the Gospel and draw awareness to the Gospel in general.

I’m always amazed and encourage to encounter churches embracing domains to grow their church as well as share the Gospel.

Why small business needs more than a website

Meet Pete. Roofer Extraordinaire. His shingle skills and tile-laying largess turn ordinary roofs into rare works of art. But if no one knows about Pete, how will his business thrive? GoDaddy, of course. With a domain name and website from GoDaddy, customers find Pete online. Share your talents with the world. It’s go time. Build your own website today.

I wish GoDaddy’s latest “Pete Roofer” commercial was indeed as true and easy as it comes off to be. If anything, this commercial is a great marketing ploy for the person with an idea to launch their new business today.

But for the small business owner that has been around the block a few times, you know it’ll take more than just a domain and website from GoDaddy to run and operate a profitable, successful business.

I’ve watched the “Pete Roofer” commercial a number times, and there are a few things to point out.
