If you’re looking for a new job and are thinking about starting a business for yourself, then you might want to consider becoming a domain reseller. Who is a reseller, you might ask. A reseller of domains helps their clients to find the domain name registration they need for their business.
You could become a reseller fulltime and focus all your time on this. We have seen that a lot of resellers actually combine this work with their actual job. SEO specialists, marketing agencies, and even the local IT guy, they all see the importance of getting the right web domain name registered. If they can offer this for their customers, it’s a great service to stand out from the competition, plus they’re making extra money.
How would a marketing agent become a reseller?
Registering a domain name sounds easier for a lot of people than it is. Yet, it is often a vital part of setting up a business. A dairy farmer in a small German village might not understand anything related to SSL certificates or DNS servers. All they want is a web page where they can share their different dairy products, the opening hours and instructions for how to get to the farm and maybe, if they’re feeling bold, a web shop where customers can buy the special milk directly online and have it sent.
However, running an online website is something completely different than running a farm. So what does this farmer do? Get help. Small marketing agencies have lots of customers like this. They need someone to set up their website, create the content, help uploading images, and to find the right domain name for their web page. Who is a reseller? Any marketing agent that helps their customer get a good domain name for their website.
The importance of a good domain name is also well known amongst SEO specialists. Moz, a leading SEO blogger, mentions in this article why and how to get a good domain name for a business. The best domain name for any company has to be memorable and make use of keywords without being too stuffed with keywords. SEO specialists will run into customers who could really benefit from migrating their website to a different, better domain.
Again, being able to offer that service is a lot better than just pointing this out to your customer. After a URL migration, an SEO specialist wants to stay up-to-date with the ranking of the most important keywords, so it is in their own benefit to be a reseller and get the domain registrations themselves.
But what if I’m not any of those?
No problem at all! As mentioned above, you can easily become a full time reseller of domain names.
