About two weeks ago Daniel Scocco released his ebook Killer Domains: Tools and Techniques to Find the Perfect Domain Name. Daniel owns and manages Daily Blog Tips, Daily Writing Tips, and Daily Bits. In Killer Domains he reveals all of the information that he has learned through the past few years of buying domains and building profitable websites.
Because many readers of this blog are actively involved in building websites, I thought that Daniel’s book would be of interest to many of you. Daniel kindly provided me with a copy of the book so that I could review it here.
To start with, the book is nicely laid out so that it’s very easy to read. It consists of 55 pages, with about 30 pages of content and 25 pages for a list of over 400 prefixes and suffixes to help you find the right domain. Daniel included bookmarks in the PDF so you can easily jump to other sections of the book any time.
Daniel starts the book by going over seven keys to good domain names and he explains what separates the good from the bad. If you’ve been involved for a while with websites and domain names, some of this information will not be new to you, but it all certainly needs to be said to accurately cover the topic. Some of the issues covered include the length, memorability, and descriptiveness of the domain.
Part of finding the right domain name is coming up with plenty of choices so you can narrow the results and find the best one. Daniel gives some ideas for helping you to quickly build a huge list of potential domains. At this point some research begins. Daniel goes over the research that should be involved and he’s linked to plenty of useful tools that can help you to get the information that you need, including tools for researching domains, researching trends, and resources for buying registered domains.
In my opinion, the true value of this book is that it puts all of the necessary information and resources in one place. Any time you are looking for a domain, this book can help. The comprehensive list of over 400 prefixes and suffixes will make your brainstorming much easier and it may help you to find that perfect domain much quicker than you could otherwise. With all of the researching tools right there, along with Daniel’s instructions, this book can take you step-by-step through the everything you need to do in every phase of the process. I believe the book could be a great time-saving resource because of the information and resources and how they’re organized.
The price of Killer Domain is $17, which would be a steal if it helps you to find the perfect domain name. Because of the value of the book and its low price, I feel confident recommending it to bloggers, web developers, and anyone else who is looking to build a profitable website. Daniel is even offering a money-back guarantee if you feel that the book isn’t worth the $17.
It should be noted that I do have a working relationship with Daniel. I have been writing for Daily Blog Tips since last year; however, I don’t feel that this has any impact on my recommendation of the book.
