When you think of sitting in a cafe the image is likely pleasant and relaxing. But if you own and operate a cafe, relaxing may not be how you describe your experience. The restaurant business is high-risk, great reward. The restaurants, delis, cafes, eateries, etc. that succeed have great food and service, yes, but more importantly, they know how to promote and advertise, which creaties a network of regular patrons and a postive stream of word-of-mouth. The new .cafe gTLD extension cafes (and coffee houses, restaurants, diners, etc.) have a new online home--a marketable domain that will let the people who want to find you, find you online... easier than ever before. Having a website, social media presence, and online photos and tours can help bring in new customers and keep regular customers coming back. You can also leverage your new .cafe website to promote specials, events, and news.
The goal of the new .cafe gTDL is to provide a new/better way for businesses to make their websites easily identifiable to their clients--and to bolster consumer confidence in their brand. Registering a .cafe domain extension for your brand will help you grow (and keep) your business, by letting the world know exactly who you are and what you do. And it will help enhance advertizing efforts and help you promote your business (or yourself) more effectively online, increasing search rankings. Be sure to get the .cafe domain name you want before it's taken.
