Webnames.ca Launches 11th BIV Ad Campaign Featuring Business in Vancouver

Webnames.ca has launched an advertising campaign in Business in Vancouver that will be running from September 2012 until August 2013. When we were considering a campaign with BIV, we started to think about who we are and what makes Webnames, well, Webnames! Immediately we thought about our customers!

We have built our business and our reputation on our #1 core value of “amaze every customer with exceptional service.” Our customers are always giving us their feedback and we decided to take their experiences and share them with the rest of the business community here in Vancouver. We thought this was a great opportunity to share stories about our customers, to highlight their personalities and businesses and the great things they are doing.

Summer Domain Sale: $4.99 .BIZ Domain Names

The summer is here, and it’s the perfect time to register your business name online! Webnames.ca is having a domain sale on .BIZ domain names!

Why .BIZ?

Get the domain name you want – With the popularity of .COM, it can be difficult to get the exact name that you want. .BIZ offers more opportunities to get a unique domain name that will really work for your business. You can finally register that domain name you’ve always wanted like VancouverCraftBeer.BIZ or CanadianEntrepreneurs.BIZ.

Differentiate yourself – If you’re starting a new business, let people know about you with a .BIZ domain name, it sets you apart from the Internet’s vast crowd of .COMs. Do you have a new specialty bacon restaurant or maybe you just love bacon? Consider getting TimeForBacon.BIZ, it’s unique, available and makes your business more memorable! Plus, it’s a catchy name too.   

Protect your brand – If you already have a .COM or another domain extension, registering a .BIZ domain name is still a good idea. Protecting your name across varied extensions means that others can’t infringe on your name and take away business from your brand. Ensure that your customers never get lost by forwarding your .BIZ domain to your main website, for maximum exposure.

Internationalized Domain Names – Communicate with customers and website visitors in their own language. Protect and enhance your brand in multiple languages globally. PoutinĂ©.BIZ anyone?

Register your .BIZ domain name and make sure to enter WNBIZSALE in the shopping cart!
