Get your own Domain Name
Getting your online presence established and set up your own website will require you get yourself a domain name.
If your business name is XYZ123 you might want a domain name like xyz123.com.au (if you are an Australian business) or xyz123.com (if you are an American or international business). I am saying, “might want” because you will find that a lot of domain names have already been registered.
If the ideal domain name xyz123 is not available with the suffix you want such as .com.au then you will have to look at alternatives. You could change the name to xyz-123 and use one of the newer ccTLD (country code Top-Level Domain) like .co, that is assigned to Colombia, but used by business globally or use .io that is assigned to the British Indian Ocean Territory.
Set-up a professional email address
Having your own domain name will also mean that you can get a professional looking email address like email@example.com instead of firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
Social Media Network ID’s
Before you think you have found the perfect domain name you might want to consider if a similar name is also available on today’s most common social media networks. If not then a tweak of the name might do the trick ensuring you have a domain name and a social media network ID that is sort of similar and easy to remember. The exercise of searching for your domain name should ideally run in parallel with the exercise of searching for your user ID on Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, Linkedin, Pinterest and Google+. Even if you are currently only thinking about using the number one social media network Facebook, you should also secure your ID on some of the other existing networks as well as new ones that emerge. Things change very fast on the internet, back in 2004 the leading social media network was MySpace its number of users expanded from 1 to 5 million users within that year. 4 years later in 2008 when Facebook was only 2 years old they had managed to have the same number of user (115 million) as MySpace. Today MySpace have around 50 million users and Facebook got 1.5 billion users!
