Using your own domain name on your social network profiles and various web 2.0 properties are more important than one might think.
Let’s take the most recent ‘Youtube Slap’ for an example, how many internet and network marketing professionals lost all their content and friends instantly when Youtube decided to terminate their accounts?
Losing all your content is painstaking enough, but what about all the links that you placed all over the web pointing to that profile? Where does all that traffic go? Definitely not coming back your way!
Now unless your intention was to spam (we normally spot those accounts before or by their first blog post anyway), we are not planning on banning any accounts or terminating any MLM Blogs.
Point still remains, you need to control your own domain names as far as humanly possible to avoid being at the mercy of any social site or to redirect your traffic to different sites when need be.
That way if any of the social sites give you the red flag, you can simply direct the traffic back to a new social site of your choice.
That’s all good for social profiles, but what about satellite sites? (a.k.a remote blogs on web 2.0 properties)
This is where thatMLMbeat PRO Members take advantage of our domain mapping feature.
If you are blogging on thatMLMbeat and you would like to use your own domain name like yourname.com instead of yourname.thatmlmbeat.com, then this video is for you.
When you use your own domain name, your blog on thatMLMbeat acts as a complete personal blog, but you still benefit from your blog posts being fed to the front page… nice!
In a hurry? Do this:
1. Log in to your thatMLMbeat backoffice
2. Scroll down to the Tools Menu and click on Domain Mapping (if this is not visible, you will need to upgrade to PRO)
3. Add your domain name
4. Go to where you purchased the domain or your domain host and add a DNS “A” record pointing at the IP address of this server (IP Address provided in the backoffice. Doesn’t make sense? Watch the video!)
5. Email me your domain name so that I can ‘park’ it on our server.
Although we park it on our server, your domain is still YOUR domain name. If you decide to use it for something else later, just contact us and we will ‘unpark’ it for you.
