The “content is king” adage isn’t going away anytime soon, and there’s a good reason for that – content marketing works! Large corporations and hot tech startups leverage this marketing approach often. But small business owners can benefit just as much, if not more, from content marketing efforts.
What is content marketing exactly?
Content marketing is a category of marketing that focuses on the creation and distribution of quality and relevant content. Think of it as a way to connect with your customers in an authentic and relevant medium, to form a genuine relationship. You are offering your customers value, perhaps solving a problem they may have and you’re making a lasting connection in the process. Interested? Read on to discover industry insider tips from our partners at .us domains, and get this strategy working for you.
When starting a content strategy, focus your attention on your immediate products and services. You don’t need to reinvent the wheel or conduct massive hours of research. Think about what you do every day, knowledge that may seem second nature to you could be very valuable to your target audience.
Let’s say you’re a local pie company. A great idea is to share quick blog recipes like “how to create an easy pie crust,” or “the perfect whipped frosting in under 10 minutes.”
What about a small social media agency? Create a cool infographic about “how to make your Instagram page look beautiful.”
Interior designers should consider creating a video series featuring instructions on simple ways to spruce up your home.
You get the idea. Strategic content empowers businesses to share their brand story, enlighten their audience and establish themselves as industry experts.
Here are a few tips to keep in mind as you get started:
1) Keep content valuable and engaging.
Sit down and brainstorm ideas and blog topics that you can confidentially speak to as a small business owner. Think about educating your target audience and answering their most pressing questions. Quality blog content should position you as an expert in your field.
Plus, quality content written about your business, products and services, provide natural keyword relevancy to help boost your visibility in search rankings.
2) Go beyond the blog.
Create resources that can help you gather information about your customers. This might require more in-depth, specialized content like whitepapers, checklists, and guides that can help your audience learn more about your industry, company, and services.
Also, think of going beyond the written word. Our smartphones have become great tools for recording high-definition quality video, so consider posting an instructional video to your website and/or social media channel. Give locals a video tour of your new brick-and-mortar. Again, get creative as video has become a dominant digital medium and an effective way to keep people engaged.
You don’t need to be a big company with a massive ad budget to create these resources. Small business owners often underestimate themselves. If you’re a local florist, for example, think of creating a seasonal gardening guide. If you’re a nutritionist, consider creating a keto recipe booklet. These helpful resources might entice your customers to trade in their contact information for your valuable, gated content (see more below).
* Because this type of content is more resource intensive, consider gating these resources behind a contact form so you can collect your customer’s names and contact information for email follow-up and building your newsletter list. This means, visitors will be required to enter the contact information in order to download your content.
3) Let the small business marketing campaigns begin.
Once you gather your leads’ information you can engage with them further, be it to alert them about a sale/deal, product launch, fundraiser, etc. For example, if you capture a customer’s email, you can store it in your customer database. Then, when it comes time to build a newsletter or e-mail marketing campaign, this customer will automatically be among the subscribers, and up to date on all your business has to offer, especially when it comes time for a sale.
As you create these emails, just be sure that each has one call to action that leads recipients back to your website to engage with you further or prompts them to schedule a call. A critical step for any email marketing campaign to work is to ensure you are sending from a business email account. This is not the time to leverage your @gmail or @hotmail personal address. If you haven’t already, secure your custom business email address with a domain as unique as you.
4) Bring your content to social media.
While blogs, whitepapers and videos will result in a resource-rich business website, you must also think of larger distribution. In addition to e-mail campaigns, look to social media as a great (and usually free) vehicle for sharing your small business content.
Post and share any new blogs or content pieces on your social channels to draw more eyes (and potential visitors) to your content-rich website.
5) Be consistent.
Whether you start small with a free blog or have a long-term plan of building up to a gated e-book or podcast series, make sure you’re consistent in the publishing, sharing and distribution of your content. In other words, don’t leave your audience hanging. Think of a packaged content series that covers a given topic in depth.
Also, as an entrepreneur, time management is everything. Allocate a set number of hours each week to content creation.
6) Be authentic.
Again, content marketing is an indirect form of advertising because it’s encouraging the business and the customer to form a connection beyond the transaction. As business owners we invest so much time to convince people to buy your product, but if we invest time and effort in educating and helping them to solve problems, overtime you’ll build greater brand loyalty, which is absolutely priceless for small business survival.
Looking to launch a new blog site? Get online with a domain as unique as you are.
The .art domain zone, created for professionals in the art world and the creative community, confidently entered 2021, passing the mark of a hundred thousand users.
There is continuous innovation happening in the .art domain zone. We’ve selected some of our top .art stories that will hopefully motivate you to get creative or bring inspiration for your hobbies.
1. Crypto artist Matt Kane released his record-breaking Bitcoin-based artwork priced $100K on volatility.art.
Chicago-based artist Matt Kane began a classical painting career before moving to IT. He combined his skills and became a “creative programmer”. Kane’s Right Place & Right Time, 2020 work is programmed to reflect Bitcoin’s price volatility. The work and the domain volatility.art, on which it was created, were sold to a private collector TokenAngels for over $100,000.
2. The circa.art, a project that supports the creative community suffering from the pandemic by raising money through charity sales, appeared recently on the iconic Piccadilly Circus digital billboard.
All the legendary brands such as Coca-Cola, Kodak, eBay, Nescafé, Hyundai, L’Oréal Paris, McDonald’s, and many others have marked this London’s central tourist location. Since October 2020, visitors and residents of the capital can regularly view a new circa.art’s monthly video of a work by a renowned artist on sale. Artists such as Ai Weiwei and Patti Smith have already taken part in the project. The artworks on view are available for as little as $100.
3. .art received a patent for its unique ART Digital Twin solution.
The past year has become significant for .art in terms of innovation. The domain zone received a US patent for a developed method of storing and identifying objects using additional Whois fields, launched as “.ART Digital Twin“.
The Observer, a leading international publication, has released its newest edition of Arts Power 50. The founder of the domain zone, Ulvi Kasimov, was included in the list among the most influential artists, curators, heads of museums and non-profit organizations, politicians and innovators operating in technology related to art.
.Art zone co-founder and a trustee of the Multimedia Art Museum (MAMM), Reikhan Kasimova, launched a charitable project titled Flowers for Medics amid the rise of the pandemic in 2020. Together with MAMM, .ART launched an exhibition of works submitted within the framework of the project. A sold-out charity auction to support medical workers and artists in need also followed the show. The initiative further strengthened .art domain zone’s authority as an innovator across both art and tech communities.

With just three widely recognized letters, .inc is the domain that quite literally means business — accompanied by all the professional perks you’d expect:
Instant Credibility Purchased by more than 51% of Forbes Most Valuable Brands, .inc stakes your place at the pro’s table. Graduate from that startup garage space to the main stage with a domain name your customers and clients know to trust. In this reliable, professional namespace, you’ll stand out from your competitors, proving you’re invested in your work.
Increased Security As a premium domain extension, .inc prioritizes security and aims to eliminate cybersquatting — empowering businesses like yours to purchase the domain you want, when you want it. Save time and money by avoiding pre-owned domains and private sellers entirely. Join major brands such as Nike, Facebook, Amazon, and American Express in protecting your brand with a .inc registration.
Great Availability We’ve all excitedly searched for our preferred domain, only to face that dreaded “unavailable” message. Rather than parse through less-than-ideal alternatives, with .inc, you’re far more likely to get your first choice upon that first try. While a .inc domain is an investment, if you’re looking to secure your exact brand name, it’s well worth the expense. Less pricey than other premium alternatives, .inc offers an extensive selection of available names, giving you ample opportunities to find your perfect match.
Dream big, beyond business.
Contrary to popular belief, .inc domains are not limited to corporations alone. Anyone can register. And with those three easily memorable letters at your disposal, their possibilities are as wide as your imagination. Who says inc has to mean incorporated? Get creative with page titles and offer your visitors a bit of welcome wordplay… .inc/omparable or .inc/lusive or .inc/orrect. You could even celebrate your favorite mineral on z.inc. Oh the opportunities!
Whether you have a propensity for puns, or a brilliant business mind, the benefits of .inc extend beyond name recognition.
Boost your branding. Use an exact match to your brand name for a domain that’s as easy to remember as it is to type. Startups like Exo.inc (formerly exo-imaging.com) and Air.inc (formerly aircamera.com) have both secured new rounds of funding since upgrading their domain to a perfect match.
Benefit from shorter domains. Use .inc to be more mobile-friendly, authoritative, and memorable — like Dental.inc (formerly IntegrativeDentalSpecialists.com) and FMG.inc (formerly FTRmedia.com), or one of our favorites, th.inc (formerly thinc.digital) — now that’s easy to remember!
Improve your SEO. Rank higher on results with a name search engines trust. Collab.inc ranks #1 in Google for “Collab” — above Collab.com. Fluency.inc ranks #1 for “Fluency Inc” — ahead of TryFluency.com and GoFluently.com.
Rank internationally. Unlike most country-specific domains, .inc ranks internationally in Google and carries the same weight as .com. SF.inc (formerly SF.com.tw) and Event.inc (formerly EventInc.de) no longer have the geographic search limitations from their prior country code extensions.
Build your brand with .inc.
Commit to your company. Get creative. And go big with the domain that’s dressed to impress. Grab this offer to secure your perfect match before it’s gone.

Everything about your school’s online presence starts with your domain name. It’s the address of your institution online. Your domain is the name that students, faculty, and alumni will need to recall in order to easily find your school on the internet. To attract the best and brightest students to your institution in today’s connected world, it is crucial that your school stands out to them in this way. Many students’ first stop will be researching online when choosing their ideal educational fit. Schools that have an inviting and memorable online presence have an advantage when appealing to prospective students.
Besides winning the race to attract top students, institutions must also adapt to the rapid expansion of online services in the education industry. Many key initiatives for student retention have moved fully digital. This includes everything from online classes to student enrollment and even program organization and donation collections.
Unlock the full potential of your school’s online presence by building on a platform designed to bring freedom and flexibility to the education industry online.
How .College helps drive students to your school online
1. .College domains can make it easier to find you online
A .College domain helps you enhance your school’s brand online by making it easier to remember where to find your website. As the main information source for your school, your website should be at the center of all of your promotional activities – whether that’s sending direct mailers, running digital advertisements, updating social media pages, or attending college fairs and other events. Having a more memorable domain name to use in this promotion increases the stickiness of your marketing and keeps your school top of mind for potential students.
You can promote YourSchool.College in advertising campaigns as a branded link to collect applications. Giving out that same domain name on direct mailers and in-person visits can increase the likelihood that a student or parent will remember it later to research your school.
YourSchool.College is also a short and easily readable URL that will not take up too much space in social media posts. The flexibility and memorability of .College domains help you optimize all areas of your school’s branded promotion.
In order for your promotion to be effective, you need to have your school’s name top of mind for your target audience. One of the oldest ways to test if you have a memorable online name is the “radio test.” Your website name passes the radio test if someone who hears it in an advertisement on the radio would easily remember it and recall it again later.
.College offers you a unique chance to secure a domain name for your school that is both short and intuitive. In fact, many institutions can upgrade their web address to a domain name as short as three characters. One example of this is the Institute of Forensics College Corporate University, which promotes its forensics education programs through the short and expertly-branded domain ISF.College . Their 3-letter .College domain is easy for students to recall and type into their browser, sending them directly to ISF’s main recruiting page.
2. .College domains clearly communicate who you are
Your .College domain is made to help instantly connect your mission with prospective students and their families. A professionally branded .College domain signals to your website visitors that your institution is a part of the education community. This benefits many different kinds of learning institutions, from two and four-year universities and colleges, to private preparatory academies, to distance learning schools, as well as online educational resources.
One clear example of this branding power in action is Barker.College , which Pre-Kindergarten through Year 12 private education institution Barker College uses as their main online hub. Barker boosted their online image with a .College domain name exactly matching the name of their institution. Using the .College extension shows prospective student families that Barker provides education that puts their students on the path to higher learning.
Those in the distance learning and skill teaching sectors can look to LearnSkills.College . The domain is the online home of Learn Skills’ all-in-one education hub. As a distance learning platform geared toward high school graduates, the school offers courses on everything from business and finance to health and beauty, with specific interest courses on topics like computers and technology, writing, and even animal care. Learn Skills is able to attract students to the URL while also using it to offer a simple and memorable address for them to navigate to for their classes.
Institutions who offer various tools and guides for prospective students can do so via a .College name for each. A perfect example of this strategy in action is GuideTo.College . They promote their college application prep course through a .College domain that not only describes the product perfectly, but also doubles as a call to action. So students can simply type GuideTo.College in their URL bar and be taken right to the provider’s comprehensive guide to the college search.
Using a .College domain signals your commitment to providing top quality education that can make an impact on the career and future outlook of your students.
3. .College helps to make your domain SEO-friendly
The majority of internet browsing sessions begin through a search engine. This is where most go to get answers to their questions, find resources, and research beneficial opportunities. Getting your website to rank in search results for terms related to your institution is essential in improving web traffic.
Securing a geographic-specific domain like YourState.College or YourCity.College can strengthen your overall SEO strategy to establish your institution as the go-to in your area in online search results. These keyword phrases can match popular search terms for students.
Using a domain name that exactly matches these location-specific keywords can help your website rank at the top of search results for them. This is because the keywords in your domain name are relevant to Google and other search engines in their mission to show the best results.
Boosting your visibility in search engine results can help you save on advertising costs as well. Using these strong keyword .College domain names in conjunction with your overall website strategy can help your website rank above other institutions in your area for geographic searches. If you are naturally at the top of search results, you can get a lot of the traffic to your website naturally that you would otherwise get from buying ads.
If your school secures YourCity.College, that geographic keyword domain belongs to you alone, and prevents your competitors from getting it. You can then use your keyword .College name to help increase your site’s ranking and claim valuable real estate at the top of search results. To see what this looks like in practice, take a look at Bramcote.College in Bramcote, England. The school secured their exact match for their city, which doubles as the school’s name. This geographic keyword domain supports the school’s overall SEO strategy for their website by adding keyword relevancy in their URL. As a result, the school ranks first overall in search results for the search term “Bramcote college” as well as among the top three search results for the keyword “Bramcote.” This helps them appeal to students searching for a school in their region.
4. .College domains appeal to the new generation
Today’s students have grown up online, and they have high expectations when it comes to your institution’s internet savviness. New domain extensions like .College are the latest technological development in internet naming. Thanks to the memorability and flexibility they provide, they are gaining popularity and trust with the next generation of internet users. Build a positive association between your website and prospective students by showing you are ahead of the curve with a .College name. New domains are a favorite among innovators in the technology industry, and .College domains allow you to bring that innovation to your school’s online presence.
To do this for your school, take inspiration from Vanier College. The school uses its branded .College domain to offer a virtual walking tour to prospective students on Walk.Vanier.College. The site gives prospective Vanier students a way to view the campus and see if it is a fit for them without having to book a visit or travel to the school in person. This shows Vanier is committed to offering helpful solutions, and promotes them through the latest in domain technology.
How a .College domain improves the online experience of your students
The freedom and flexibility of .College domains give you many opportunities to enhance your students’ experience with your school online. An unrestricted .College domain affords your institution the freedom to set up pages to meet various student needs.
1. .College domains supplement your existing website
Utilizing a dedicated .College website gives your students and faculty a solution specifically built to take care of their academic needs. This way, your .College domain can provide an intuitively named page that supplements your .edu domain. Institutions who are unable to claim their own .edu domain can use a .College to upgrade their URL to an education-specific domain. Using .College domains marks their place in the higher education community better thanunrelated, generic extensions they may turn to if they can’t get a .edu.
A notable example of .edu domain supplementation in practice is Vanderbilt.College. Vanderbilt University operates the domain as a knowledge hub with important news, ongoing research initiatives, alumni and giving information, and admissions tools. The site creates a one-stop resource for Vanderbilt University’s students to visit and stay connected with their school.
2. .College domains are memorable names for information portals
Each college or school within your institution will have its own needs for its students. Some institutions show their commitment to the members of each department by launching educational resources on URLs named for each department. Institutions are only allowed to own one .edu domain, and so offering resources for different schools or departments on a single domain can require use of long URLs with lots of slashes and extra words. It’s not ideal if it’s difficult for students to remember or easily navigate to these resources that institutions put a lot of time and money into providing online. Placing them on simple, department-specific .College URLs makes it easier for your students to find the materials they need.
Cambridge University is a great example of this kind of .College usage. They chose MurrayEdwards.College to be a centralized location for the university’s women-only constituent college, Murray Edwards College. The college attracts potential students to the Murray Edwards College within Cambridge by promoting its advantages through this dedicated URL. They also use the site as a memorably named hub for news and information which current students and alumnae can access.
3. .College domains streamline virtual-learning link sharing
Virtual learning is fast becoming a staple of higher education. Bringing classes together through online video requires careful planning and setup to succeed. Your school can greatly simplify the video conference coordination for students and faculty by using branded video conference links like YourSchool.College. Long, random URLs generated by video conference platforms can be difficult for students and faculty to remember. This sets the stage for potential issues when classes organize online. Using a simple, branded .College URL removes this extra confusing step.
Simply use the branded YourSchool.College name with custom subdomains or subdirectories for each class conference link. Using .College domains in this way can bring classrooms together online efficiently and effectively. Best of all, only one link is necessary for all classrooms to keep track of.
4. .College domains are equipped to handle your school’s e-commerce
.College domains have no restrictions on commercial use. This makes them perfect platforms to use when creating online venues to:
Sell tickets to events
Set up e-commerce platforms for school merchandise
Collect university organization-related fees
Conduct other commercial transactions
The .edu domain ending is a classic, but can be complicated to obtain, and its use has restrictions, such as prohibiting any commercial transactions on the web address. As a primary or additional option, .College domains carry no such restrictions, making them perfect for any school-related commercial purposes.
Shop.Career.College perfectly illustrates this use of .College domains. The site serves as
Vancouver Career College’s online store. It provides students with a virtual marketplace to buy supplies, electronics, and school-branded apparel all from one central online hub.
5. .College preserves your school’s online reputation
.College domains offer unprecedented branding opportunities and memorable URLs for your institution. However, those unassociated with your school could seek to register a URL matching your school’s brand and conduct malicious activity like phishing and spam. By claiming your school’s brand on .College, you signify your school’s commitment to the new innovation happening in website naming. You’ll also prevent bad actors from seizing an opportunity to unfairly profit off or damage your school’s hard-earned reputation.
Thousands of universities have already locked down their institutions’ brands on .College. Centre.College , ranked among the Top 50 Liberal Arts Colleges, claimed their exact matching .College name to use as a branded redirect to their existing online hub. Cementing your institution’s ownership of your brand on .College gives you the same opportunity to promote a branded URL.
Closing in on your .College name
.College domains help higher education community members attract prospective students and build a deeper connection with them. They also offer a memorable platform for online student solutions, which improves overall retention.
Memorable .College domains are your school’s tools to boost online promotion and advertising. Your .College connects closely with students by appealing to them with department or geographic specific URLs. Using the .College extension marks your institution as an adopter on the edge of the new wave in higher education naming online.
.College domains are free of restrictions, allowing you to provide all the services your students need. Your .College domain is your school’s home for commercial hubs, memorably branded virtual learning portals, and classroom resources. Securing your institution’s name on .College cements your mission and prevents bad actors from impersonating your school.
Your .College domain is the key to unlocking the full potential of your school’s online presence. The first step in realizing this potential is to secure .College domains for your institution, departments, and region for $9.99/1st year. Take advantage of this opportunity to cement your school as a top destination for students through a memorable, industry specific .College domain.

New domain extensions can be access keys to the world of Internet, as innovative, increasingly attractive elements vital in establishing your piece of virtual property. Can new domain extensions be a first step for your business success in this digital era? Definitely! And domain extensions like .LTDA and .SRL can be part of the success of your business.
Embrace the future: gTLDs for your business
The new generic top-level domain extensions, known by the abbreviation gTLDs, represent an important milestone for the Internet and the DNS. Before new gTLDs were launched in late 2013 and 2014, there were only about twenty gTLDs available on the market.
The TLD .com was, and remains, the most popular choice, but this is exactly the reason why this domain today is highly saturated. Long domain names are definitely not a good choice, while .com premium domains are not accessible to small and medium companies that do not want to pay a fortune. To date, there are over 1,500 top-level domains (ccTLDs and gTLDs) available for the global Internet community.
As a company, you now have better and easier access to significant domain names to build the best possible online presence for your brand.
.SRL & .LTDA: your professional choice for your corporate website
Are you doing business under the legal form of a limited company? Here is some big news: We have the perfect TLD for your company! If you run a Ltda or s.r.l. company in Latin America, Italy, Spain, or Romania, the domains .LTDA and .SRL become your digital corporate identifier. You can now create a domain name that perfectly matches your business name.
These two TLDs offer a unique opportunity for companies that want to build a professional presence on the Internet. If you are looking for the perfect business domain, .LTDA & .SRL, run by the registry InterNetX Corp., will be the right choice: they ensure a professional name with a clear and concise message.

.Gay launches to the world on September 16th. There are so many exciting aspects of the new .gay domain extension, including industry-first policies that result in big donations to LGBTQ organizations and enforceable anti-hate policies. We could tell you all about this stuff, or we could let some sassy gay GIFs break it all down. Um, GIF please!
Yup, .gay is well, GAY! And when we say GAY, we mean, it’s an inclusive space that upholds LGBTQ people and causes and doesn’t follow the internet’s do-nothing status-quo when it comes to bullying and hate. Whether you identify as LGBTQ or allied, .gay stands with you! And at 3 characters — just like .com and .org — you can be sure that everyone will know a .gay URL means WELCOME TO THE GAY INTERNET.
.Gay is the internet’s new pride flag. In the same way that a storefront may have a rainbow flag or sticker in the window, a .gay domain affirms the business or individual behind the site as a community member or ally.
“Why get mad when you could be GLAAD?!” The .gay registry donates 20% of every new name registered (that’s revenue, not just profit!) to LGBTQ organizations. In its inaugural year, .gay has partnered with the preeminent GLAAD, which, yes, has been doing important work aimed at empowering LGBTQ people in media representation even before Taylor’s shout out. Equally important is .gay’s beneficiary partner CenterLink, which is an umbrella organization of over 250 LGBTQ community centers around the world. Each center is doing vital, life-saving work in their community, and CenterLink makes them stronger together.
.Gay is going to take down domains associated with reported and verified anti-LGBTQ hate and harassment?! An anti-troll domain extension?! While .gay can’t change the whole internet (although we would if we could — please, gay overlords!), it has an industry-first policy that will allow it to suspend domains that are being used by hate groups or otherwise have hateful, anti-LGBTQ content. If it’s a chop, IT’S A CHOP!!
The .gay domain has already launched more than a hundred sites during its early access phases, ahead of the public launch. There are community centers, health resources, small businesses, celebrities, and even some big companies jumping on board. These use cases show that the .gay community will reflect the diversity of the world’s wider LGBTQ communities. One site stuck out to us: grindr.gay. (Plus it had a really nice GIF tie-in and if you’ve made it this far, then you deserve a sprinkle of mostly-safe-for-work sexy.)
