Social Land Grab

@Tim | Social

Everyone knows the first thing to do before creating a website and/or company for that matter is come up with a name and subsequent url. For years, entrepreneurs and marketers have searched high and low on GoDaddy to find what precious .com real estate is still available without resorting to premium url prices. In 2009 however, finding the right .com real estate is just the start, next step is see what social real estate is available for that same name. A great little tool we recommend (and use) is Namechk, simply type in your brand name and vuala… availabilty of that name for 68 of the most popular social sites will register in RED or GREEN overlays. My only beef with Namechk is they surprisingly forgot to include in the results.
