The Right Domain Name is Critical to Success

Welcome to Ganja Names. We are glad you found us.  We offer top-notch premium domain names for the cannabis industry.  Many of our names are specifically attuned to the Medical Marijuana industry. Others are for entrepreneurs who see the nation trending toward legalization and want to get into the business or at least prepare to get into the business.

As you probably know, owning a good domain name is critical to your business these days.  It has long been said that the three most important considerations for someone opening a retail store are LOCATION … LOCATION … and … LOCATION.

It is important to remember that your internet URL is our Virtual Real Estate.  And with Virtual Real Estate, those are still the 3 most important rules.

Instead of being on a busy street with plenty of visibility and traffic-flow, you need to be on an internet website that is easy to find, easy to remember and easy to promote through SEO (Search Engine Optimization).

Now days, more people search for a business online than in the yellow pages of the phone book. Having a business presence on the Internet is actually more important than having a Yellow pages listing. In fact, the phone companies that sell yellow pages listings, now promote their listings on the Internet more than they promote their listings in phone books.

Because of that, if you have to choose between spending $1200 per month for a phone book listing and spending up to $5000 for a domain name, the domain name is the bigger bargain. (We are assuming you are purchasing a premium domain name that describes your business.) In this example, the domain name costs the equivalent of 4.16 months of phone book advertising and it is yours to create any website you wish. Your contract with the phone book company requires you to pay that $1200 every month for the term of the contract (usually 1 months). You only have to pay a yearly fee of about $12 US Dollars to keep the domain name after you’ve purchased it. If you want, you can pay in advance to own it for many years. For about $100 you can own it for 10 years (with the multi-year discount offered by most registrars.)

If you want to change the look and feel of your advertising campaign, you can change the website you already own at any time. If you want to change your ad in the phone book, you have to wait a year until they are publishing a new one and change your ad then.

Your domain name is your key to success. It is how the rest of the world finds you. It is how you tell the world about your business. It is a big part of your marketing and branding efforts. The right domain name can make a huge difference between success and failure.
