What's in a Name? Try $2.5 Million for 'Cabinets.com'

What's in a Name? Try $2.5 Million for 'Cabinets.com' | Modern Woodworking | Scoop.it
Whomever nails down this unique ecommerce opportunity will own a significant advantage in the cabinet industry.
Spyker Manufacturing's insight:

What an opportunity!  Let me get my checkbook. . .  I wish.  

 

When it comes to SEO, keyword popularity and search patterns nothing is better than having a domain name with the most popular keyword.  It's no different if you are selling leather jackets or kitchen cabinets.  A price like $2.5 million may seem a bit exhorbitant, but you'll be drawing traffic from anyone who will ever search for kitchen cabinets - or any other kind or cabinets - for the forseeable future.  

 

Keyword is king and it looks like cabinets.com is the best of the best when it comes to drawing attention to your brand, regardless of what it is, in kitchen casework.  If you don't want to shell out millions for a non-specific, take traffic from everyone domain name then there is some work to be done.  

 

Make sure your site is filled with relevant and useful content.  Update your site frequently.  This makes Google take notice. Use your industry specific keywords wisely.   Promote on social networks and encourage those who read your site to share as well.  For a much more reasonable fee you can hire SEO companies that specialize in developing your site to attract the right traffic.  Create newsletters with useful, free information that will keep people coming back for more every week.  

 

These tips aren't only for the cabinet makers out there, but for anyone, anywhere who owns a website.  

 

Good luck to whomever can scrape together $2.5 million for cabinets.com.  Hope it's worth it.

Woodworkers: Regain Your Independence From LEED

Woodworkers: Regain Your Independence From LEED | Modern Woodworking | Scoop.it
Don't follow the LEED: the design community should regain its independence and not be beholden to a process that is tantamount to a 12-step program for responsible construction.
Spyker Manufacturing's insight:

Another great blog Brooks - keep them coming. It seems that finally someone with some common sense is speaking 
up. As you have stated, it seems that people become so obsessed with rules that common sense goes out the 
window. I sometimes wonder how much additional energy - human and otherwise - along with wasted trees in the 
form of paperwork are expended in these "green" projects.

Inspiring Kitchen Cabinetry Details to Add to your Home

Inspiring Kitchen Cabinetry Details to Add to your Home | Modern Woodworking | Scoop.it
Your kitchen cabinetry is one of the main aesthetic focal points of the room and rightfully so, they take up the most real estate and they provide function (Inspiring Kitchen Cabinetry Details to Add to your Home http://t.co/DSlxTND1...
Spyker Manufacturing's insight:

The kitchen has morphed from the place where food is cooked to the room where friendships are forged and maintained.  Since families and their guests are spending more and more time in the modern kitchen make sure it is beautiful, functional and easy to maintain.  Plastic laminate casework in a kitchen allows you to choose your color, sheen and even texture of your cabinetry faces.  The cabibets will be durable and easy to clean.

Workshops teach kids woodworking, tool skills
HeraldNet
The Everett Public Library and Home Depot are offering an opportunity for kids ages 5 to 12 to learn basic woodworking skills and how to handle tools safely at two workshops in June.
Spyker Manufacturing's insight:

With so many school losing funding for what used to be considered essential skills classes it is encouraging to find that Big Box stores are finding ways to fill the gap.  Our children are growing up in a time immersed in technology that grabs their attention in every waking moment.  Their eyes seem perpetually tied to a computer screen or a mobile device.  They need to get outside, learn to use their imaginations, learn to use their hands for useful things.  It may not seem like learning basic woodworking skills are essential for modern life, but they are skills which may one day come in handy once they reach adulthood.  We are running out of "handy", skilled people.  Wouldn't you feel proud to know you contributed to your child getting a well rounded education in mind and body?

Woodworkers: Don't Follow the LEED

Woodworkers: Don't Follow the LEED | Modern Woodworking | Scoop.it
LEED, originally drafted as a format to realign priorities towards energy efficiency and environmental stewardship has morphed into a strict guideline, limiting creativity and compromising common sense in construction.
Spyker Manufacturing's insight:

Great blog Brooks! I completely agree with what you are saying here. Just another case of how through bureaucratic 
maneuvering "non profits" are getting rich by making people feel warm and fuzzy - like their partner in crime FSC.

Cabinet Sales Continue Growth in 2013

Cabinet Sales Continue Growth in 2013 | Modern Woodworking | Scoop.it
After closing 2012 on a positive note for the first time in six years, expectations for 2013 cabinet sales are upbeat as the economy continues to improve.
Spyker Manufacturing's insight:

This is great news for casework manufacturers everywhere.  The economy is growing and home sales are up.  This uptick in the economy is also having an impact on corporate and public projects.  With more money flowing jobs are being created and more projects are being planned.  Whereas last year many companies were having to lay off employees and run leaner this year the tide has turned and more projects are available for bidding turning into more hours of labor for their workforce.
