Two of The Biggest Mistakes I see When Picking Out A Business or A Domain Name

Being a person who has many connections both offline and online, and being a Life & Business Coach, I am often chatting with people about their idea for their business name or domain name or how they are going to brand themselves and ‘the name’ always comes up.

Here are two of the common mistakes that often happen and people sometimes, unfortunately, don’t realize until it is too late…. which is why I am writing this… to prevent you from making any of these branding mistakes.

Mistake #1

Too long of a name.

For example when you are choosing a domain name, the shorter the better and for various reasons. Ex. Beer.com It’s short, it’s easy to both spell and to remember. It also takes less space on business cards and printing materials. So always go for the shortest and simplest version.

Mistake #2

Too Crafty & Not Simple Enough

I get that we are creatives but some people get too crafty. You ask them what their business name means ex. LPJ3ArtsAndCrafts.com They tell you that it is the first letter of their name, their husband’s name, and the name of their cousin twice removed and the 3 is for the 3 different types of art that they focus on πŸ™‚ LOL! And believe it or not this happens all the time.

Another example is a name that means something to YOU but means nothing to your potential customer and they will never remember it. For example, “BrattleboroPrinting” Co. I just made this up. So maybe you live in Battleboro, Vermont, or you came from that town that you think fondly of, and now you own a Digital Printing Company that ships finished products all over North America…. who is going to remember this name? Personally I have never heard of this place until I Googled small towns in the USA to find an example and I know I will never remember how to spell it off the top of my head in the future.

So for both examples, what is the problem? Ask these questions:

Can people who don’t know you remember this name?

Gosh, can people who do know you remember this name?

Do people other than yourself care what it means?

Does it tell people what your brand or company is in a simplified manner?

Will your customers and peeps remember in the future if it is the number 3 or Three spelled out?

I am sure by now you get the idea πŸ™‚

When it comes to branding and choosing those names, keep it simple and consistent.

I hope you found this helpful.

Imagination IS the Key to Having it All!

Quote from Neville Goddard on a picture of The Sleeping Giant on Lake Superior in Canada

Only his imagination you say? Imagination is 𝓔π“₯π“”π“‘π“¨π“£π“—π“˜π“π“–! We are what we imagine. We are our own virtual printing machines walking the earth. I believe this to be absolutely true!

What we ‘image’ or ‘imagine’ is what we bring into our reality … that is ‘we make real’.

Another quote from Neville is “It is the exact and literal minded who live in a fictitious world”. πŸ™‚ Wow. Ponder on that one.

I for one, am jumping in whole heartedly and with passion into using my imagination to create my world and my world is AMAZING I must say!

I project onto my worldly canvas what I want to create in my life. I am the master artist of both my destiny and my playground. πŸ™‚ And this my friends feels fan and funtastic! I highly recommend using your imagination both in your life and for your business goals.

Have an AMAZING day everyone and keep on imagining! πŸ™‚

Action Breeds Inspiration

Quote: “Action Breeds Inspiration More Than Inspiration Breeds Action”.

I had to think about this one for a minute. I wasn’t sure if I got it or not but then I realized that when we take action we start the ball of inspiration rolling. It is like fueling a fire. We get the fire going (action) and then it gets bigger (inspiration + action).

This is good. As a person with tonnes of ideas, this is a good reminder that ideas are worthless if we don’t take action. πŸ™‚

It is like blogging, just write about something. That is taking action. πŸ™‚ Sometimes we complicate things too much and then we take no action.

Something to ponder on……

Obstacles Pay Off!

Graphic and quote: “The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it.” – Moliere

I saw this quote and loved it! I am very much enJOYing some 𝔾𝕃𝕆ℝ𝕐 these days. I have been a student of the internet for many years now and I love it. However, lately to top it all off, I have had some upward curves and quantum growth in my work. My hard work and results are starting to pay off and I can see and feel the next level emerging.

Meet my “Golden Pen” as I call it. I use these pens, that I πΏπŸ’—π’±πΈ, and I have them in different colors but this is my new gold one fondly nicknamed “My Golden Pen”. Why? Because it is symbolic to me that I am tapping into the virtual goldmine of the internet and how easy it is for anyone to build an online goldmine of leveraged income. Yeah, the make money while you sleep kind. The wake up and check your inboxes to see those deposits kind of income. β™₯ The bring it on kind of leveraged income. β™₯ The passive income where one can #workandplayfromanywhere like I do.

And I use the term ‘easy’ lightly as it has been many years of long hours of learning, trying and tweaking, investing lots of ca$hola, and I still do that everyday, but now the dots are lining up and I can see that the future is very bright. So bright! 🌞🌞🌞

As a Life & Business Coach, I can help my clients fast track to where they want to go because I have put in the time, money and effort to decode a lot of this stuff. The funny thing is though once you figure all this out you realize your time is better spent applying what you know to your own business goals. πŸ™‚ LOL!

Anyhoo I will close now but I will leave you with the thought that these are πŸ…΄πŸ†‡πŸ…²πŸ…ΈπŸ†ƒπŸ…ΈπŸ…½πŸ…Ά times in marketing history. The future is πŸ˜β˜… 𝓑ⓑ𝒾ق𝓗𝓣 …. SO β–‘Bβ–‘Rβ–‘Iβ–‘Gβ–‘Hβ–‘Tβ–‘….

So get your golden pens out and start setting your goals to maximize on this golden era of opportunity! All the best to you πŸ™‚ And never, ever, give up. I believe in YOU!

Woman with Sun glasses on and quote: “Act the way you’d like to be and soon you’ll be the way you’d like to act.”

We have all heard the saying “Fake it until you make it”. This quote is similar to that. What I like about this is that it reminds us to use feeling to create our best version of ourselves.

We have to act the part of who we want to be to show the Universe that we want to manifest exactly that. The person we are ‘being’ and ‘feeling’ while we are projecting onto the universal screen of creation and manifestation is a powerful thing.

The stories we tell about ourselves are more than just verbal. We are energetic beings and if we can hold the vibration of our desired outcome, we can manifest it into being.

So always act as if and act as though you already are… whatever that may be… happy, successful, abundant, rich, healthy, wealthy… you get the idea. πŸ™‚ And then you will bring it into being. πŸ™‚

And be sure to have FUN while you are doing this. πŸ™‚

How Well Do You Communicate?

Two people communicating

Whether it is in a personal relationship or a business relationship, communication is key!

Those who become master communicators win the game because there is less room for error and time is not wasted sorting through misconstrued information. And there is a lessor chance of feelings getting hurt!

The best way to communicate is to ‘spell it all out‘ in a language that is relatable. Even in blogging, such as what I am doing right now, the best thing to do is to write like you are talking to a friend sitting across from you at your kitchen table.

Gone are the days of puffed up wording and burbly descriptions that are trying to impress through ego driven endeavours. People today want the real goods delivered in a real and humble way…. certainly something to think about πŸ™‚

Have a great day everyone reading this today and everyone reading this in the future. πŸ™‚

The True Secret πŸ…ΊπŸ…΄πŸ†ˆ to Marketing Success in 2020

There is a secret that many people are not aware of or they miss it completely. This secret has always been true but now in 2020 even more so.

What is this secret you speak of Maggie?

Drum roll…… it is the secret of building a network. When you build a network you can move ANYTHING through it. This has always been a saying of mine but even more so now as we are in the digital age.

Guess how products are being sold these days? Through online networks. One need only open their mind to what is a network? A network is any of these:

. your Fb friends

. your Twitter following

. your Moms Group on FB

. your Gardening Group on FB

. the people who follow your blog

. your email list

. the customers who follow your FB business page

𝔼𝕋ℂ. 𝔼𝕋ℂ. 𝔼𝕋ℂ.

𝕋ℍ𝔼 π•ƒπ•€π•Šπ•‹ π”Ύπ•†π”Όπ•Š 𝕆ℕ 𝔸ℕ𝔻 𝕆ℕ 𝔸ℕ𝔻 𝕆ℕ!

There are networks and there are micro-networks. Networks are also Influencers and Micro-Influencers. These are examples of using other’s people’s networks to sell and promote.

The true secret and key that I am trying to hammer home here is that in order to market or sell anything, you need to have a network! This is why it is so important to expand your reach and grow your network(s). Those with the largest networks have the best chance to WIN!

And never, ever, forget when you have a network you can move things through the network. This my friends is one of the golden secrets of having successful income streams and the exciting part is that it’s never been easier to build networks and to market products and services. πŸ™‚
