In a moment, I’m going to give you today’s ComixLauncher, but first, we need to thank our sponsor…

BLUEHOST

Let me ask you a question… are you master of your own domain?

No, this isn’t a dated Seinfeld reference… I’m talking about your web domain.

And Bluehost is an all in one web hosting solution that will help you master your domain.

I own the domains for ComixTribe.com, ComixLaunch.com and many more… but I know many of you are trying to save a few pennies a day by NOT paying for domains you’re trying to build brands around.

That’s a mistake.

Owning your own domain provides better branding

  • More professional.
  • More credible.
  • More memorable.

When you own the dot com for your brand, it’ll help you protect it.

If you’re building your empire on someone else land, your comic @facebook or @tumblr or remember @myspace God forbid… you don’t control those platforms.

Own your own domain…

You can use the ComixLaunch affiliate link to get a special introductory offer and 30-day money back guarantee at Bluehost by going to Comixlaunch.com/bluehost today.

Bluehost powers more than 2 million websites world wide and makes it super simple to get a wordpress hosted website up in just one click.
