Be careful when selecting domain names because…your domain name may mean something that you’re not aware of.
While surfing through the PepperJam affiliate network‘s list of merchants, I came across an interesting banner:
Because all the letters in the domain name are in lowercase, you’re open to interpret it in a different way.
One way could be “Blind Sex Press”. Leaving one to wonder…what is that?
Using a series of uppercase characters can help visitors instantly recognize the domain and can help pre-qualify the traffic.
In this case the merchant, Blinds Express, could consider changing their creatives to read BlindsExpress.com, instead of blindsexpress.com.
Affiliates can benefit too, because it will increase the return on their marketing spend.
