One of the goals of my blog is to give people an inside look at how an Internet business is run. So, here’s a business decision I am currently facing:
I’m planning to build a site similar to SocialGuide.com, which is a site where people discuss TV shows (chatter.usanetwork.com is another example of a site like that), mostly in realtime when the show in on the air. SocialGuide.com recently received $1.5 million in funding. My site won’t be as fancy, and won’t involve any funding, but I happen to already be working on technology similar to SocialGuide.com for my WatchMovies.com site, so I figured it couldn’t hurt for me to setup a site like this.
My dilemma is which domain I should use for it. I already own these TV domains (I am not currently using any of them):
Or, I can buy a domain, such as:
TVWatcher.com – $2,488 (TVWatchers.com is also for sale for $45,000, but I don’t want to spend that much)
TVWebsite.com – $4,188
TVTime.com – $18,000
Keep in mind that just like with SocialSite.com, if my site does well, I might come out with iPhone/Android/Blackberry apps for it, so the domain needs to be appropriate for those also. I am happy to spend money on a good domain, if it is a better fit then one of mine.
What decision should I make?Share:
