You answered your own question already! Branding is important and I would personally always go with my own name. I for example choose my name to brand it and also an slogan.

Check if your name is still available because if you have a name like john smith it might be gone long time ago than you have to chose something related to IM.

I already purchased my domain. I might just stick with that more simple.. I just need to find an effective blog template.. Any suggestions ?

Hi there,

As you can see there are two different thoughts on this but one thing to mention here if you do build a brand under your own name you will not be able to sell it as easily as if you used a generic name. Just in case that becomes an option down the track

I have branded myself under my own name but also have another blog called get internet marketing smart. Same theme different branding

Hope that helps

Involve a spammy sounding and cheap domain with the words 'make money online' or similar in it for sure.

It is not important. Sure, look for something to brand. It can be your name, it van be a blog name.

Look at socialtriggers blog - huge success

Look at problogger - mega success

Look at zenhabits - tornado success

What is important - find your USP, narrow down, like Tamal Anwar just suggested, provide great value and market, market, market

You can brand you, or a neat make money online name...I chose cashwithatrueconscience, because I intended to share karmic tips to help folks make money online....in either case, brand yourself like mad through your blog, with pictures, videos, etc....and write like crazy to find your voice.

All the best!

Although the domain name is important, it is not the end all do all for marketing. What is key here is the content! In other words, you can use your name, your mom's name, even a branded keyword domain. Just ensure the content is up to par. Take a look at funny sounding insurance company names, design firms and other alike. Some do not have a keyword within their name, but still carry a lot of weight in gold for their industry keywords

You can also brand the site with a pen name. Then if it's sold they can buy the name as well.

As your niche is money making you better choose a domain name like below:

proonlineearning dot com

moneymakinghome dot com

earningfromhome dot com etc
