Jets Going To Super Bowl?

The New York Jets have a charismatic and entertaining coach in Rex Ryan. But what the Jets do not have is the one-word, exact match domain for their brand- ‘Jets’ in the fact that they do not have the domain name- The Jets roll with and for their web addresses. The Jets do not have the luxury of promoting the short name- since is owned by a private jet air charter company. In baseball, the New York Mets have the short and easy to remember domain for high recall. However, the NFL team Jets missed the boat in the domaining world. Let’s hope they can at least make it to the Super Bowl. Can the Jets repeat what both the 1969 Jets and 1969 Mets did for New York back in 1969 by winning a championship?

As a new brand- ‘‘, we now have a new advertising slogan for 2010- “Domain Names in Advertising”.

We are always amazed at how many ad campaigns lose focus on the significance of shining the light bright on the company’s Web address in all advertising efforts in a bold and aggressive way to drive traffic to their sites and/or mobile sites. What is your advertising slogan for your brand?  Do you change it every year the way top global brand Coca-Cola does?

Coca-Cola is consistently ranked as the top global brand. When companies use slogans, it is in their best interest to trademark their slogans and add the domain names for their advertising slogans as part of a naming strategy.

Coca-Cola, a household brand name globally, makes the headlines with an Andy Warhol painting sold at a recent Sotheby’s art auction.

“An icon of global desire.”- Andy Warhol

Domainertising predicts that a domain name will sell at a Sotheby’s auction someday down the road for a high value in the area of tens of millions and even hundreds of millions.

Top Global Brands Naming & Branding Strategies

As mentioned in a previous blogpost, roughly 30% of the Top 100 global brands use short names of four letters or less (2L, 3L & 4L). Furthermore, the top brands using short names of  five letters (5L) or less equate to 45% on Interbrand’s Top 100 Global Brand list of companies keeping it simple and easier for recall with branding to their customer base. We have not counted the six letter name (6L) companies yet, but it is safe to say that the majority of these top brands use short names that consist of six letters or less. The extreme rarity of short names with available domain names leads to high values for quality names. If you are a start-up, you know how difficult it is to claim a top notch domain name for your company. More importantly, it is smart, sharp and aware to purchase elite domains for your business. Your naming choices are worth their weight in Gold.

Going forward with Domainertising (formerly Inside Domaining), we will be studying and analyzing some of the top global brands as case studies into how these top brands have mastered naming and branding strategies in the advertising world both online and offline. The reasoning behind Inside Domaining’s re-branding to Domainertising is to combine the business topics of naming and advertising without pigeon-holing ourselves to the domain industry. In order to broaden our audience, we will be using jargon that people understand when it comes to advertising and Internet advertising. Most people do not understand domain jargon and the domain industry as a whole is way too small compared to the power domains have in generating big money both online and offline with the right naming strategies and modern Internet marketing techniques.

In an effort to shine a light on the big time pros- the successful global brands, Domainertising will attempt to bring the masses out of the darkness of traditional thinking into the creative new media mindset. We will start with Coca-Cola’s marketing approach. Also, we will be adding share buttons to be displayed at the bottom of each blogpost (for now you can use the twitter & facebook buttons to the right of our home page… oh, & many thanks in advance; do it now & do it as a habit please! ;)). We will share our ideas with you and strive with our mission as a team to raise domain awareness to those who know the value of advertising but have not yet grasped the importance and intrinsic value of high quality domain names.

If you have a vested interest in the domain industry, we ask for your support in sharing Domainertising strategies of these top brands as “proof in the pudding” that naming works. Please feel free to share our blog posts virally via email, re-tweets, facebook, etc. Let’s be team players. The domain industry is too fragmented and needs some teamwork in order to ramp up. Let’s spread the new word- “Domainertising” and reveal the best kept secret to Madison Avenue once and for all. Let’s do this. We will all benefit.

Best Global Brands Ranking for 2010

After Domainertising reviewed Interbrand’s 2010 Top 100 Global Brands, we noticed a common naming strategy of keeping names short. Roughly 29% of the Top 100 global brands use short names and/or acronyms (4-letters or less) for their easy-to-remember brand names. When selecting a brand name think big with a short, memorable domain name.

Though not on the list, let’s discuss Facebook’s naming strategy from their original ‘The Facebook’ name. Amazing it took Facebook this long to figure out is the ticket to co-brand alongside Facebook as it recently acquired the 2-letter domain. Remember the line in the Social Network movie when the Napster Internet guy schooled Zuckerberg to lose the ‘The’ in the young company’s name & go with

We say the hell with even this shorter version of from the original TheFacebook name as said in the movie, and we suggest to Facebook to re-brand entirely with ‘FB’ and brand the power of a short, extremely rare 2-letter domain they now have- is far cooler and cleaner than and by a long shot. Some of the top global brands have figured out the obvious-  short brand names are cool. This is not rocket science.


There’s a New Advertising Term on Madison Avenue- ‘Domainertising’

Definition of ADVERTISING

: the action of calling something to the attention of the public especially by paid announcements
: advertisements magazine contains much advertising>
: the business of preparing advertisements for publication or broadcast 
 (Source: Webster Dictionary)
1. the action of calling something to the attention of the public by displaying a domain name (web address) via Internet advertising, online video advertising, mobile web advertising, interactive advertising, traditional media and new media
2. domainertisements magazine contains much domainertising>
3. the business of preparing domainertising for publication, broadcast or Webcast on the Web and the mobile Web with both online and offline marketing

Imagine if you will for a moment, spending $2.7 million for a 30-second TV spot for a Super Bowl ad and not displaying a high quality domain name. How many high priced Tv ads and billboards do you see without a domain name even displayed?

P.S. Inside Domaining blog has been reinvented & re-branded with a new name- Our goal is to raise global awareness of the power domain names have in advertising around the world. We call advertising with domain names domainertising.
