Welcome to “How to use a personal domain”.
Have you ever done a domain search on your name, or a variation of your name, and discovered it’s available to own?
You may be thinking, “Why would I want a domain for my name?” The answer is that it gives you a unique web address that helps you take control of your online identity.
And that doesn’t mean creating a website, although if you should ever decide you want a website, you’ll already have a great domain for it.
But until then, a personal domain has a number of uses. You can point it to your Facebook page, Twitter account, and other social media. It acts as a shortcut for you, your friends and your followers.
And if you happen to be in the job market, you can point your personal domain to your LinkedIn profile and include it on your resume. It’s a great way to show recruiters you’re web savvy and understand the importance of a personal brand.
Are you among the ranks of people selling stuff on Etsy, Ebay and similar sites – or thinking about it? If so, you can use your personal domain to point directly to your pages, eliminating steps for your customers. The easier it is for shoppers to find you – and keep coming back – the better your odds of making sales.
In a world of billions of people, there’s a good chance others share your name. But there’s only one you. A personal domain can help you own your unique identity and stand out in the online crowd.
