Bouncing Around in the Wild with a .Rentals Domain

This past Friday, I had the pleasure of attending the our church’s last day of vacation bible school.

My wife, as well as a number of volunteers, had faithfully served throughout the week in various capacities.

Across the United States, and likely throughout the world, Vacation Bible School is one of those events that kicks off summer in a special way.

This year was special because our oldest son was able to attend have his little heart seeded with the Gospel. What a pleasure it was having him arrive home daily to share all that he had learned.

Bata Bing! Bata Boom! No… It’s Bazinga!

Well, another fun-filled and exciting work day is in the books.

I love what I do as a search marketing and domain name strategist for the customers I’m called to serve.

But as the saying goes, there’s always going to be more work than there is enough hours to accomplish it all.

As I called it a day and headed home, I normally spot a few domains on my 15-20 commute home.

Most of the time, I spot the good, bad, and ugly uses of domain names, primarily those using .com extension.

Although it’s been a few years since the new gtld release, it’s not often throughout my local traversing of Austin that I run across companies using the new gtlds or domain name extensions to advertise their brand.

But this very day, imagine my surprise to spot a vehicle advertisement wrap using the .media domain extension.

When choosing a shorter domain makes the most dollars and sense…

The other day I ventured over to check mail and found my monthly edition the the Community Impact.

It’s filled with all sorts of articles, highlights, and advertisements pertaining to the greater Austin metroplex.

I personally read it for the latest updates on new businesses launching or unfortunately closing.

Then there is also the red hot real estate market here in Austin that I like to keep tabs on.

But the most interesting thing that captivates my attention are the various ad types.

From small mom and pop to larger middle market companies, there are quite a few companies hoping their ad catches the eye of a potential customer.

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.

While watching the news and hoping for a rain-free weather forecast a few nights ago, I spotted a local austin company using a .PRO domain name.

I typically encounter .com, .net and .org domains for just about 90 percent of the commercials aired.

Although I’m not a fan of uppercased domain usage when advertising, as it’s too hard on the eyes to read and make out distinct wording, I was quite amazed to see Real Green make use of the .PRO in their televised commercial.
