I'd Love To Have The Community's Opinions On A Couple Of Domain Names Please!

Last Update: May 02, 2019

I'd love to have the Community's opinions on a couple of domain names I've purched please.

I'm not overly inspired by the name of my current Bootcamp site, not so much for the name itself, but because I feel it's too long and it's also hyphenated which, I believe, is not good for SEO.

As I was accepted for this year's Super Affiliate Challenge, I thought I'd make a completely fresh start and effectively make this 'Day 1' of my Weatlhy Affiliate membership going forward as my 2 and a bit years have been littered with false starts and distractions.

I thought I'd start with a fresh site with a fresh look, and started looking for domain names to include the words 'affiliate' and / or marketer in them. Sadly, but not really surprisingly, the most obvious are already taken, especially with .com extensions.

One of those on the list I compiled for myself was available 'themarketingsniper' and I've bought it as a .com. The other came to me in a 'flash' of inspiration, and I hope you'll excuse the pun as the domain I've purchased, again as a .com, is 'thenakedaffiliate'.

There's an awful lot of online marketing nowadays that uses words like naked and exposed. Here in the UK we've got a TV shows called 'The Naked Chef', 'Naked And Afraid' and 'Naked Attraction' which is actually a rather tawdry and poor taste dating site for exhibitionists (so I'm told by a friend of mine!). It's not actually that new, since there was a TV show from America called 'Naked City' dating way back to 1958!

The simple fact is, the word 'Naked' is eye catching and maybe in this particular context, there is a humourous element too. At the same token, some may find it a little off-putting or 'cheesey'. I'm not sure what sort of site logo I'd come up with. It certainly won't be a picture of me in my birthday suit since, with 'Attraction Marketing' in mind I certainly don't want to frighten people and put them off!

I like both domain names, and may well end up using both, as well as re-using my old site, as I narrow down the very broad 'make money online' niche and start to target specifc demographics, but that's some way down the line.

I'd be interested in hearing your opinions, folks, and thank you for any insight you might be able to give me.

Have a great WA Day everybody!

Cheers

I've gone with nakedaffiliate for the time being, Brad, but I'll certainly use marketingsniper in the future when I've narrowed down what is a broad niche and have started to focus on specific demographics within it.

I like them both but thenakedaffiliate.com has more of a ring to me in a way that would make me want to go to your website, curious on what it was about. I think the name alone would drive traffic to your site. 😁

PS - you could add a tag line, naked and not afraid. Haha! 🙃

Thanks, Renee. That seems to be the consensus opinion and was what my intuition was telling me.

I'm going with nakedaffiliate in the short terms with a view to developing marketingsniper more long term. Thanks for taking time to comment.

I think thenakedaffiliate really catches you and makes you curious, and your site could center around naked truth, doing things honestly. I think there's a great brand to be had there. Honestly, they are both great, think about the target audience you're going for and put yourself in their shoes. Good luck!!

Thanks, Mel. I'm going with nakedaffiliate for now as it's very eye catching and memorable, but once I'm more experienced in the very broad Make Money Online niche and feel able to narrow it down and target certain demographics I'll use marketingsniper as well.
Cheers

I really like "themarketingsniper" for some reason that one stood out for me as being direct and authoritative

Me too and I will be using it in the future when I've narrowed down the Make Money Online niche into different demographics to target with individual sites. For now, I've gone for naked affiliate as it's eye catching and memorable and so is quite a 'broad brush' so to speak.
Cheers
