Don't you just love opportunistic marketing? Seems like everyday, I get phone calls from someone wanting to sell me all the greatest leads for only hundreds of my dollars every month. Yeah, I swallowed that bitter pill once...Not going there again!
Then yesterday, I got the following email from the nice people at Strategies Inc.
Our agency is currently selling the domain name TulsaOK.net We can currently offer this domain for the very reduced price of $890.
Owning an easily memorizable domain name can help to drive high value clients to your business.
If you have interest in purchasing this domain or have any questions, you can contact me at...
Now let's think about this for a moment. The first little indication that this might not be something we really want to consider is the fact that it isn't addressed to me. In fact, it isn't addressed to anyone! What that tells us that is that this is a spam email that was sent out to no telling how many people.
The next indication that we should run for the hills on this particular offer has to do with the purchase price and the domain name. Notice that they are offering TulsaOK.net rather that TulsaOK.com or TulsaOK.org or any other extension. Why is this? Because they don't own those names. They went to GoDaddy.com or some other online vender and bought this name for the same price you and/or I could - around $20 bucks! Now they're trying to reach into our pockets to make some easy cash. Is that even legal? I guess go...but talk about a HUGE price mark-up! No thanks!
Even though TulsaOK would be a big Google keyword search, the competition for those particular words or for the words of other big cities is extremely large. The fact that you might own a city domain name is no guarantee that you can drive it to the number one result on Google page one, even with excellent blogging content. Too many other people have way more money, are way better at it and have been trying to do the very same thing for a whole lot longer.
Tell you what Strategies Inc, I think I'm gonna take a pass on your offer today. In fact, I think I'll just use my blogging skills, keyword placement and Google juice that I learned and harvest from Active Rain. That will take me ahead of you to page one position one in Google every time!
