Telnames' first newsletter is out!

Post by Alex on Wed 15 Aug 2012, 1:36 pm

This is the content of the first newsletter automatically sent to all existing customers:

Dear Customer,

Your .tel name is formatted in such a way that makes it easy for search engines to find and display you in their results. This gradual process can take a few weeks. However, there are a number of additional steps that you can take today to make it even easier to get found. You can found all these great tips at http://www.telnames.com/faq/found.

Take a look at some of the great examples created by our customers here - http://pinterest.com/telnames/our-customers-tel-names. All of the features they use are available through your Telnames management console.

Remember, the better you populate and share your .tel, the more visible it becomes to your customers.

Kind Regards,
Telnames.com

These are the recommended steps to getting found:

Your .tel name is automatically formatted in such a way that makes it easy for search engines to find and display you in their results, but there are more steps that you can take to make it even easier to get found online.

1 – Populate - Make sure your .tel name is populated as well as possible. This includes using unique content and linking your page to other websites and social media sites. Additional links can be inserted on your .tel name by clicking the "Add" button in the "Contact Information" section of your management console

2 – Submit your site to Google - Once you have populated your .tel name it will take a couple of weeks for Google and the other search engines to “find” and then “index” it. You can speed up this process by submitting your .tel directly to Google at https://www.google.com/webmasters/tools/submit-url

3 - Free Listings - Adding your .tel name to a free listing not only helps the search engine visibility of your .tel name, but it also adds another way for you to get found online. Two of the larger free listing sites are:

  • Google Places let you link your .tel name to a free listing, which will boost the visibility of your business in their search results. Our guide can help you set up a listing with Google
  • Yell.com - In addition to paid listings, yell.com also offer businesses free listings, which can drive traffic to your .tel name. Our guide can help you set up a free listing with Yell
  • There are many other ‘free’ directory listing sites which can be used to link to your .tel name and we suggest you search to find the ones most suitable for you in addition to the two listed above


4 - Share - Make everyone aware of your .tel name through linking to it from any other websites you have and social media pages (e.g. Facebook, Twitter etc). Another great way of letting people know about your.tel is by adding it to your email footer- replacing lines and lines of contact details with a single link. We have instructions on how to add or update your email footer for some of the most popular email services here

5 – Divert – If you have a website such as a .com or .co.uk which isn’t mobile friendly you can set this up to automatically divert anyone visiting it to your .tel name. Full details on how this can be done can be found here

Remember, the better you populate and share your .tel , the more visible it becomes to your customers.

Good solid advice by Telnames, particularly valuable to newbies, though the Yell.com and Google Places freebie links are useful for all.

Those registering Telnic .Tels via a registrar wont of course get the above info sent to them.

I have 8 telnames .tels and as far as I can see I didn't receive it, so I guess I'm not a valued customer heh.
..I'll re-check old emails just in case.
..

Found it
..
Telnames should partner with other listing services so that no one needs to sign up at them, aka you should get listed in yell without lifting a finger or whats the point of a .tel? so such and such should get automatically listed as a business if you bought a .tel as a business and list your business data and address and email etc.
..
Everything is below a .tel in the hierarchy, aka .tel is supposed to feed them the correct data thus to expect us to sign up is ridiculous, you enter and update your .tel and it updates all other partner sites and if it don't why have a .tel?

This is a point that Mark has often brought up as the way .Tel should operate - directories (YP and others) should read the .Tel DNS at the point they require the information so the directory is always up-to-date and only a single master copy (in the DNS) exists.

With former Yell.com Head of Marketing Ian Bowen-Morris joining Telnic in July 2010 (see http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/telnic-hires-former-yellcom-head-of-marketing-ian-bowen-morris-as-chief-marketing-officer-97787064.html) you would have thought Telnic would have at least got a few YP directories operating like that by now !

But AFAIK they haven't - another promising .Tel idea that doesn't actually happen in the real world !
