Watch the full interview on our Youtube channel and read along with our transcript below.

Transcript

[Brooke] Hi. I’m Brooke with Saw.com and today I have Chris Shuptrine, VP of Marketing with Kevel. Chris, thank you for joining!

[Chris] Thank you for having me Brooke.

Who is your company? What do you provide as a service?

[Chris] We are Kevel, we offer software that makes it easier for brands and apps to build custom, user friendly, private ad platforms to monetize their site and apps. Lots of big words there, but when you think of a company like Facebook. You are scrolling through the feed, and love them or hate them, but there are the promoted posts that are within that feed. Those are what we call Native-Ads, they are there but they aren’t like pop-ups, they do not slow down the page, they are relevant to your interests. Additionally, you are not going to see Malware or spam. Facebook makes many many millions of dollars from that ad platform, and it took them years to build and hundreds of engineers. What we want to do is democratize that advertising tech.

With our tools you can take something like Facebook. But, instead of years and fifty engineers, you can use two engineers and a couple of weeks and build a minimum viable product that is similar and that you can launch. 

We work with a lot of marketplaces too to not promote posts, but similar to Amazon’s sponsored products. For example, where you search for a hat and the first three results are sponsored hats. Those ads drive 10% of their GMV right now. So, they make a substantial amount of money from their ad platform. 

At Kevel, we talk to retail and marketplaces and say, see the success Amazon has from their ad products? What about building that and doing it easily with our infrastructure tools?

What are the factors that you want to portray to your potential customer’s, with regard to your brand identity online?

[Chris] We are an interesting product. We appeal to both the revenue and exec side and to the technical side. By that I mean, creating an ad platform is effectively a revenue idea, generating opportunity. So that is going to stem from the people who are growing the company, that could be the head of product or revenue. But then the actual implementation of the product is through API’s and tech software. We are very much a backend infrastructure tool, so you cannot just drop us into your sites and suddenly it works. But, that is our selling point! By being more of a backend tool, there are more security benefits, faster and gives you the opportunity to create more native ad placements. 

When did your company first conceptualize this brand? My understanding was before the company was under a different name.

[Chris] Yes, it was called Adzerc. We were founded in 2010 by our CEO, James Avery, at the time we were more of a traditional ad tech platform. As we evolved and we pivoted to being more of an API solution, we realized the name Adzerc was not the best name suited for the company. We rebranded in December and because Kevel.com was not available, we went with Kevel.co. 

What was the process you took as a company to pick the name as well as the domain name? 

[Chris] We worked with a brand called Lexicon Branding, we went through a couple rounds of keywords and company name ideas. Kevel was one of them. We liked it a lot. What spoke to us was that it was so unique, it’s not a name that is heard often. However, it is also not a made up word, if you are familiar with boating, kevel is the cleat that is attached to a dock that you would tie to your boat to keep it moored. 

It ticked off a lot of boxes of what an ideal domain name would be; five-six letters, symmetry in the name, easy to pronounce, easy to spell. With Adzerc, some people would capitilize the “z” and some wouldn’t, so it lead to confused branding. With Kevel it is not a problem, its easy to pronounce, snappy and memorable. 

The biggest issue was that Kevel.com was already taken. So we found the .co and moved forward with that. 

[Brooke] One of the recommendations in the domain industry is that if you are going with a brand, you need to make sure that customers are going to be able to say it and spell it. Even if they have never heard of the word. Kevel is short, snappy, strong and easy to remember.

Playing off that, what advice would you give to a startup, or even an established company, looking to acquire their brand fitting domain?

[Chris] Naming is hard, if you have the budget to work with a third party professional, highly recommend it. Working with an outside eye was so helpful. Internally, it is very easy to be caught on being overly descriptive with the domain name. Working with an outside help to bring in new words and brandable names that evoke an emotion- not always product related.

We did not let the lack of a .com stop us from going forward with the domain. It was not necessarily ideal, but we still launched with it and I tried to reach out to the owners of Kevel.com. The advice I would give is if someone is to hire a professional. We went to Saw.com to see if there was an opportunity to work with professionals to acquire Kevel.com. Why? Because we saw value in the .com. 

With companies there are always interesting highlights of something that was supposed to go one way but went another. Do you have any interesting stories?

[Chris] A while ago, one of our customers was Reddit, we were powering some ads on their site. Our CEO was randomly in their office doing a visit when they invited him into their product meeting. They were discussing difficulties with getting out this native promoted Reddit post of theirs. James Avery, our CEO, was like “Yes, we can do that!” Perhaps it was not fully built yet, but he went back to the office and we figured out how to make it happen. It was a good thing he was in that meeting, because it changed the course of the company. We started to build more backend software to allow for user friendly, privacy driven, integrative ad units that we were not doing before. 

Would you recommend Saw.com to other companies to assist in domain acquisition?

[Chris] 100%. We tried and failed to acquire Kevel.com. Saw.com did not fail. You were great to work with, the start to finish was a month. You were fast, you acquired it and at a price we were looking for. 

[Brooke] Wonderful, it was a pleasure of course. I wish Kevel good luck, we will be watching you guys expand and continuing on your success. Thank you so much for being here, I wish you the best!

How-to-Choose Domain name

How to Choose a SEO Friendly Domain Name

Your domain name is essentially your company’s home address. It is the location users plug into their search engine to find and connect with you. Whether they are just looking to browse your site, or if they have a question or want to make a purchase, your domain name needs to help them get to you. Customers want easy, they want fast. The less work for them, the better. Acquiring a domain name that directs customers to your company site quickly and efficiently should be your goal. 

Additionally, choosing a domain name that also fits your brand should also be on your mind. It is crucial to your company’s success that your website also captures the essence of your brand’s identity. How do you find a domain name that checks off both of these boxes? You find a domain name that fits your brand but is also SEO friendly and you watch it bring you to a whole new level as a business. 

In this article we will cover the importance of domain names, SEO and how to choose an SEO-friendly domain name for your business.

Importance of a Domain Name

At Saw.com, we believe in what a domain name can do for a business. We want you to be seen online, and seen by millions of people. As the virtual address of your business, your domain name should do exactly that. A premium domain name is easy to spell, brandable and memorable. Some of the benefits a premium domain name can bring your business is building your credibility, increasing site traffic, increasing sales and so much more. 

Still do not understand the importance of owning a strong domain name?

There are currently 363.5 million domain names registered across all top level domains (TLD’s) around the globe. Without a good domain name, you are a needle in the haystack that is the Internet. 

You need to figure out how to make your business stand out from the other businesses, large and small. And in 2021, you simply can not just rely on organic reach. There are far too many business websites and social media pages to compete with. If you want to stand out, you need to take matters into your own hands. This is where choosing the right domain name is crucial. 

Search Engine Optimization

First, we need to discuss SEO. 

SEO stands for search engine optimization. It is the process of improving your website in order to increase the website traffic from search engines. So, when people search for a product or service similar to yours, your site can be recommended.

Essentially, search engines like Google have bots that scour web pages collecting information about different sites. Then, algorithms use the information to determine what website should be on what page of Google search results. This is what sets SEO apart from advertisements. You can not buy a good SEO ranking in search engines, you need to work for it. 

As a company, you want to take advantage of using SEO so you can rank higher in searches. Why? Because the higher you rank, the more exposure you receive from organic traffic, and the more customers you will receive. 

SEO Friendly Domain Names

Wondering how to take the reigns and get your company the traffic it deserves? You purchase a premium, SEO-friendly domain name. Here are some things to keep in mind as you search for a domain name:

1. Top Level Domain Extensions (TLD’s)

When purchasing a domain, you need to choose the domain extension that is right for you. Today, there are over 1,000 domain extensions- some unique to countries, some that connect with specific industries and activities. However, the most common domain extensions are .com, .net, .org and .edu. 

Which do you think typically rank higher on Google searches? The most common TLD’s, of course. To give your business a better chance of ranking higher in search engines, buy a domain with a TLD, like a .com or .net.

2. Brandable Domain

When choosing the domain for your website, you need to make sure it is brandable. What does this mean? 

  • It is unique. Think of Amazon.com or Google.com. They are made up words, a blank canvas to create a business upon. And, they stand out. 
  • Make it simple. The easier it is for people to remember, the better.
  • Easy to spell, easy to pronounce.

3. Avoid Hyphens and Numbers

Using hyphens and numbers in a domain name typically correlates with spam to a search engine like Google. Hence, ranking you lower. Additionally, many customers will not trust the site. 

For example, Walmart.com vs. Wal-mart123.com. Which is easier to remember? Which would you trust? 

4. Easy to Spell

Again, your domain name needs to be easy to spell. Not only for your customers, but for search engines that are trying to figure out where to rank your website. 

Choose a domain name that people will remember.

KING-COM-BLOG

Why The .COM is the King of Domains

When you are starting a business there is much to consider. Your brand, finetuning your product or service, target audience and your online presence. Owning a domain name that matches your brand significantly benefits your company. The benefits include improving recognition, building credibility, generating new customers, and establishing your company identity. Buying a domain name that matches your brand is truly a no brainer! 

However, there are domain names that are superior to others. Owning a .COM domain name is one of the keys to success when it comes to branding your business. These are the .COM domain extensions. They are the golden standard on the internet and we are going to tell you why. 

History of the .COM

.COM was first implemented in January of 1985 as one of the first top-level domain names in the DNS, or Domain Name System. This was years before the launch of the World Wide Web. Other top level domains included .gov, .edu, .mil, .net and .org. Although they were not created with business transactions in mind, the .COM was created based on the words “company” and “commercial”. 

However, with the fast growing popularization of the Internet, the .COM was opened to the public. It became the most popular for websites and emails, both for large corporations and individual people. Today, the .COM domain extension is the most used top level domain on the Internet. As of March of 2021, there are 363.5 million domain name registrations across all top-level domains. Additionally, 154.6 million of these have a .COM extension. Coming in second is .tk, with 24.7 million domain registrations. 

Benefits of the .COM

So, why do so many internet users use the .COM extension for their website? Why is the .COM truly the king of domain names?

It is Memorable

Think of when you sit down to search a website. You type in the domain name and probably without thinking add .COM as the extension. The .COM is most people’s default when searching the internet.

Both tech savvy people and people with no technological knowledge associate .COM with most websites. Additionally, it is easier to remember than .biz, .info, .tv, .de, .int and other region specific extensions. People associate most websites with this extension, and when they are searching the internet this is what they type in the browser.

It Builds Credability

Not only is the .COM the default when searching the Internet, but it is also the most trusted by Internet users. People associate .COM with successful businesses and trusted names. If you have a premium .COM domain name, that means you had the financial resources to acquire that domain. Additionally, you have the expertise to brand the domain and rank high with SEO. 

Think of trusted companies like Amazon.com, Apple.com, Target.com and more. If Amazon had a domain name like AmazonProductFinds123.tech not only would it not be memorable, but it would not be trusted.

It Gets the Most Traffic

Because so many people go to the .COM as the default when searching online, it gets the most traffic. For this reason alone, we recommend acquiring the .COM with your domain name. The amount of site traffic you could miss out on is too great to not purchase it from the start. 

No matter what your domain name choice is, you should always acquire the .com first, even if that means spending thousands of extra dollars. The value of having the .com name simply cannot be overstated.

Are .COM Domains Better for SEO?

For your website to rank well, there are a few things that you should be doing.

  • Buy a domain that is one word; easy to spell, memorable and brandable
  • Match your domain name with your brand 
  • Avoid non .com extensions

Now, the .COM is not the end all be all of your website. There are alternatives, like region specific gTLD’s. Additionally, if you are a niche or local market and traffic does not matter as much to you, it is probably not necessary to purchase the .COM. However, for most other businesses we would strongly recommend buying a domain name with a .COM. 


Why? Google also loves websites that use .COM. This extension is the oldest and most used, Google understands this and the fact that most people use .COM as their default. Google as well as other search engines are programmed to understand and prioritize human search behavior. If most people are searching websites with a .COM, that is what Google will rank. So, are .COM domains better for seo? Yes, Google will prioritize and rank them higher and you will have more site traffic since people automatically assume your website has the .com extension.

NFT Domains

The Rise of NFT Domains

NFT’s. The digital asset that has celebrities like Elon Musk and his wife Grimes, Snoop Dogg, Paris Hilton and more joining the crypto art craze. We keep hearing about them on the news, in pop culture and online articles. But, what are they really?
Are NFT’s just a short lived craze? Or will they shift the world of investing forever? In this article Saw.com will answer your questions about NFT’s; what they are, why you should care and how they could affect the domain industry.

What is an NFT?

Put simply, an NFT, or Non-Fungible Token, is a unique digital asset. They represent real life objects like art, music, videos and in-game objects. However, they are bought and sold online, and many times purchased using cryptocurrency. Many NFT’s are part of the Ethereum blockchain, an open sourced  blockchain. However, a large majority are also created and sold using marketplaces that accept other coins.

A NFT can not be replaced with something else, because they have distinctive properties. An example of a non-fungible object is The Mona Lisa painting by Leonardo da Vinci. If you traded it for another painting, you would have something completely different. There is nothing that compares and can be traded equally for The Mona Lisa.
Some characteristics of NFT’s include:
  1. Each non-fungible token has a unique identifier
  2. Each token has a creator and an owner. It is easy to verify yourself as either the creator or owner.
  3. NFT’s are not interchangeable with other tokens. Each is completely unique.
  4. NFT’s are based on Ethereum.
  5. They can be sold through an NFT market like Ethereum or sold from consumer to consumer.
NFT’s are not to be confused with a fungible token, like the cryptocurrency Bitcoin. Bitcoin is a digital currency, without a central bank or single administrator. It can be sent from user to user through bitcoin network without the need for an intermediary. Furthermore, there is no difference between two Bitcoins, they are like two United States one dollar bills. Interchangeable, physically identical and worth the same amount.

Examples of NFT’s

Charlie Bit My Finger, Nyan Cat GIF, CryptoKitties and NBA shots are just a few examples of recently sold NFT’s. Although most often associated with digital art, NFT’s can apply to any product online. And they are truly taking the digital world by storm. One NFT, Beeples “Everydays: The First 5000 Days”, sold for a whopping $69 million dollars this year.

Some examples of NFT’s include: unique digital artwork, a video, gifs, an essay, digital collectible, a video game item, designer sneakers, an online ticket for an event and a domain name. However, NFT’s are still so new. Because they include anything that is unique and requires individual proof of ownership, in the future there could be much more that is identified as an NFT.

NFT's and Domain Names

As the interest in NFT investments rise, there will be more and more websites handling the transaction of NFT’s. Thus causing an increased need for NFT related domain names. Domain company, Donuts, monthly market report of trending keywords reported a huge spike of domains containing NFT’s in March and April in 2021.

Some of these domain names were registered by investors, but some buyers were companies who sell NFT’s. Common keywords for NFT related domain names include NFT, NFT’s, NonfungibleTokens, NonfungibleToken, as well as the hyphenated versions, non-fungibleToken and non-fungibleTokens. 

For example, by our estimation it looks like NFT.com, and NFT’s has changed hands. Saw.com would presume that if they did trade, they sold for millions of dollars, if not above 10,000,000 each. In order to break into the NFT space, one does not have to have a domain that has the letters N F and T in it. Amanda Waltz recently co-brokered the sale of Candy.com. Candy is currently being used as a NFT site.

Additionally, a close friend of Saw.com is launching an NFT site on NFT.net. We wish the site good luck and look forward to see it’s success!

The Importance of Domain Names in the NFT Industry

Domain names are the digital real estate upon which we build our businesses. They provide a portal for customers to reach us. Domains have never been more valuable or important as they are in 2021. The rise of the United States E-commerce goes hand in hand with the increased sales of NFT’s. There are 4.27 billion Internet users in the world, and a website provides access to each and every one of them.

This is true for domain names in the NFT industry. With a memorable NFT domain name, this digital real estate will become a destination for both NFT buyers and sellers. Additionally, a domain name shares many characteristics with NFT’s. They are each unique, non-fungible, with proven ownership.

What Does a Domain Broker Do?

Domain names are the digital real estate of a company. They define brands, increase credibility, improve SEO and improve your business in so many more ways. A domain has the power to bring an individual or business to a new level of success by improving their brand online. Domain brokers are the people who help clients who want to acquire or sell these domain names. By understanding what domain brokers do, it will be easier for you to reach out to one in the future. Read more to learn about domain brokers and how they can help you reach your business goals.

What is a Domain Broker?

The online world can be a confusing place. With millions upon millions of registered domain names it can feel impossible to find one that fits you and your brand, at the price you want. This is where a domain broker comes in. Domain brokers are essentially real estate agents, but on the Internet. Instead of selling houses, they are selling domain names. Domain names are a virtual street address, how your potential customers or clients find you and visit you on the internet. So, similar to a real estate agent, a domain broker is an expert in the online world of domain names. They are the experts in the industry, and the best people to consult when acquiring a domain. Domain brokers work for you and with you, the client, to help you achieve your goals. They will listen to your goals and domain name needs and apply their expertise of the industry. There are two types of domain brokers; seller brokers and buyer brokers. A seller broker is a broker that represents you when you want to sell a domain. A buyer broker is a broker that represents you when you want to buy a domain. However, most domain brokers will represent you with either buying or selling.

Why should you use a Domain Broker?

Using a domain broker to sell a domain or buy a domain makes it easier for you. You can sit back and relax as domain brokers do the heavy lifting. They will walk you through the process, utilize their network and make your business goals achievable. Domain brokers add many advantages to the buying and selling process:
  • Domain Brokers protect your privacy: When you use a domain broker while looking to buy a domain specifically, your identity remains anonymous. Your domain broker represents you throughout the process, and talks to the seller without ever revealing your identity. Why would you want to remain anonymous? Well, if you are a larger successful company, a seller might raise their price on the domain. Additionally, a company might not want their domain name search going public, as it could reveal some of their future business plans.
  • Domain Brokers have a strong network: A domain broker who has been in the industry for a while has many connections among other brokers and companies. Additionally, brokers always have a network of buyers looking to buy different domain names. If your broker has a strong network, they will know who owns the domain you want and how to reach them.
  • Domain Brokers can give advice: As experts in the industry, your broker can guide you through the process and answer any questions you have. Brokers can give advice on the pricing of the domain you are buying or selling, ensuring you do not overpay as a buyer or get under paid as a seller. Brokers can also give you advice on a backup plan in case the domain you want is not available. Additionally, they can suggest other domains if they believe yours is not good for SEO.
  • Domain Brokers have negotiation experience: Buying or selling a domain name is challenging, but negotiating the sale of a domain name can be even harder if you are doing it alone. Additionally, you could let your emotions get the best of you. As the internet real estate agents, domain brokers are very good at negotiating. They can be in between the buyer and seller, mediating any tension and informing both parties about the domain’s valuation. Furthermore, you know you will be getting a fair deal if an experienced broker is handling the negotiations.

Brooke Hernandez on Kickstart Commerce Podcast

Saw.com domain broker Brooke Hernandez was featured this week on the Kickstart Commerce podcast. Hernandez spoke with podcast host Alvin Brown about her extensive experience working with domains. They discuss how she stumbled upon the vast industry to becoming one of the most well-respected Domain Consultants and Branding Agent. Additionally, in this podcast, Hernandez recaps domain names she has brokered in the past and what she does in between sales.
Podcast Sneak Peek
Who are you? What is your personal and professional background?
“My name is Brooke, a.k.a Broker Brooke, and I am a Domain Consultant and Branding Agent with Saw.com. I have been in the domain industry for almost ten years. Starting with a company called Domain Advisors, moved to Uniregistry and got my knowledge and understanding of sellers and now I am with Saw.com.

When I was little, I wanted to be a Veterinarian. There was no radar of me going in this direction. But, I was lucky to get into it when I did. I actually started as a commercial broker in my 20s, I wanted to be a developer. Then the market crashed in 2008, so I knew developing was not going to be happening for a little bit. So, I luckily had a friend introduce me to Tessa Holcomb and I got in with Domain Advisors.”

I had no idea this industry even existed. But, this industry is so fascinating. It is not just buying and selling, there are so many different levels to it.
Who are you? What is your personal and professional background?
“Yes. When I was working at Uniregistrey I sold the domain vaction.rentals. New gTLD’s are great. What i am seeing is if people can not afford a strong .COM domain and have a great business idea, they start with gTLD’s. If you are a small business or startup or mom and pop and just want to get into it and see, it is a great way to do it.

On the flip side, I am working with those same startups and companies where once they hit a certain level of funding and certain level of revenue, that realize they need to get the .COM. The .COM is thirty years old, because of that it is also looked upon as the location. People know it, they are comfortable with it, they see it.

There are over 200 million active websites and over 40% of them are .COM. Additionally, almost every Fortune 100 company owns their brand .COM. These successful companies are making sure they are taking their own brand to their own company. Making sure that no competitor gets it and no one can run with their brand in a different direction. I am still seeing the .com as the location, it is trustworthy and the most desired.”
