Owning Your Own Domain
You aren’t in this alone.
Tread Partners has one very important rule: you own your domain. There are quite a few reasons why we want you to own your domain – namely being: it’s yours. You’ve used that domain since your company first got on the internet and you’ll use that domain long after your marketing efforts are underway.
Why do we have to say this?
A popular trend that some companies still follow is to lease you a domain name, but not allow you to keep it unless you pay them lots of money. Who wants that kind of relationship? Not Tread Partners, that’s for sure.
And why should you own it?
This was popular with companies like Yellow Pages because they could easily make a lot of money off their domains. Well for Tread Partners, that’s just silly. It costs $11.00 per year (from GoDaddy) for a normal .com domain. That $11 allows you to have professional email addresses and a place for users to visit your company’s website. There’s no need for a “free” company-website.wix.squarespace.net domain when you can have your own domain name for so cheap.
“But I don’t know what to do!”
That’s the great part of working with an agency like Tread Partners. We know what to do so you don’t have to. From helping you purchase your first domain, to helping you get your IT team squared away, Tread Partners will help you every step of the way.
“What happens when we part ways?”
We all know that not all relationships last forever. That’s why we want you to own your domain. If the sad day comes when Tread Partners is no longer a part of your marketing efforts, you’ll have full ownership and control of your domain. Free and clear.
As always, Tread Partners is here to help you and to assist in any way we can. If you’re stuck, having issues, or would just like to say “Hi”, please don’t hesitate to email [email protected] or call us at 888-866-4233.
