http://reijourney.com/My name is Kasper. I need a name for my upcoming real estate investing blog (i will maybe at some point also write about personal finance). I will share my journey from being a complete beginner (buying my first house) to becoming an intermediate (hopefully ;-))
Help me find the perfect blog name! All suggestions are appreciated!
True, what do you think about kaconomy ?I think the name's irrelevant. Put it under your own name, or something that includes "real estate" and "journey to success" themes. Doesn't really matter what. If your content is awesome, people will flock to it. If you get a lot of readers, you can run a contest or poll suggesting better names for your publishing. If you don't have a lot of great posts, who cares how catchy the name of the blog is?
^^^ THIS!!!I think I'm probably qualified to respond to this one...
Don't waste time focusing on the name of the blog. In fact, don't waste time focusing on the blog at all. Focus on the real estate journey -- that's where the bulk of your effort needs to be if you want to be successful in that industry.
Not saying you shouldn't start a blog and document your progress (it worked for me), but you can always go back and rename, revamp, redesign and reorganize your blog after you have a couple real estate deals under your belt and a whole bunch of content already written. I know lots of people that spent so much time focusing on their real estate blog that they never got their real estate business off the ground.
Focus on the real estate.
I agree. But still - if I can get a great name from the beginning, it would be awesome. I know content matters and that my full focus should be on my investments, but I like to share things with others as well. For me, blogging is fun.^^^ THIS!!!
“Tell me what you’ve done and I’ll tell you who you are.”
Document your journey, so others can follow. Do it even if no-one reads it. Before you know it you’re way ahead in your journey, and have left a trail of breadcrumbs.
My “blog” looks crap. I have hardly any readers. I keep changing domain even. I don’t bother collecting email addresses. I don’t care. I make money building my business and the blog is just insights gained along my journey.
Don’t get me wrong, I’d like to monetise all the content I produce, but I don’t want to put the cart before the horse.
The content is a by-product.
JScott hit the nail on the head.I agree. But still - if I can get a great name from the beginning, it would be awesome. I know content matters and that my full focus should be on my investments, but I like to share things with others as well. For me, blogging is fun.
Just make it your name initially? That way you can twist and turn and change what's on it (“pivot”, as others call it).I agree. But still - if I can get a great name from the beginning, it would be awesome. I know content matters and that my full focus should be on my investments, but I like to share things with others as well. For me, blogging is fun.
No. If you are successful in your real estate journey and can translate that success into useful content, THAT would be awesome.I agree. But still - if I can get a great name from the beginning, it would be awesome.
And I was simply answering a question you didn't ask, in attempt to help you...I guess its my own choice. I was just asking for a name. Not advice on what I should focus on...
You haven't offended me But anyway, thanks for the advice. If you have any name suggestions, feel free to throw them at meAnd I was simply answering a question you didn't ask, in attempt to help you...
Given that I've literally made millions of dollars by doing what you're considering doing (monetizing the blog I started to track my real estate efforts), I thought you might appreciate that.
But, if I offended you, I apologize. Feel free to ignore my feedback.
Thanks man, It helped alotFair point.
For naming a company I like two random words plus something niche related:
I also like appealing to people where they are, and where they might want to goto later.
E.g. FreelanceAndBeyond. This is for people who want to become freelancers, or freelancers who want to move beyond that and grow a business.
If I’m doubt, use your name and move onto the next problem.
In a way you do. Because you so generously share with others the advice you give your clients, that means people who call you about a project have a very good idea of what you're like. And why they should respect your professional advice.I’d like to monetise all the content I produce, but I don’t want to put the cart before the horse.
Prologis and Ventas sound Greek, which ESPECIALLY does not say "put your money here"I just did a web search for largest real estate companies by valuation. Some have names that let you know they do real estate or investments. But these are generic: Brookfield, Prologis, Weyerhauser, Ventas. None of those names suggest, "Put your money here to make money in real estate." But all have been great places to do just that!
Ventas is from Chicago, now doing business in the U.S., Canada, and U.K. Their focus is the intersection of real estate and health care.Prologis and Ventas sound Greek, which ESPECIALLY does not say "put your money here"
