    bargain cove can mean anything ... it is really up to you to setup any shop you like

    Ever notice that people who spend money on WSO, memberships and courses, are always complaining about being broke and not making any money ?

    They should have bought ASSETS instead.

      relevant domain name is good for seo
      by using keywords in the domain
      but is seo the best method of getting traffic

      look at all the successful sites out there
      with domain names that have nothing to do with the service they provide

      If I was providing just one service then I would go for a keyword related domain name and build off that

    Your domain itself doesn't really hold any value. It can be an adult website for all anybody cares... it's all what you decide to do with it and how far you carry it.

      These questions should have all been answered before you spent money on domains.

      You have a domain name, good!

      Do you have hosting? Do you know how to build a website? If not, do you have money to pay someone to do it for you?

      Do you have money for marketing?
      You can do anything with the site, but what I'm getting at it's a you should have thought of the business before the domain.

      Answer this: Why did you buy the domain and what did you picture in your mind when you made the decision to buy it?

    You can use auctions or used stuff to build online store. Ebay or amazon content will be good to try. Good luck.

    The domain name, itself is pretty good. You need to figure out what niche, you want to sell in. You need to figure out what products and who is going to provide you these products to sell.

    Are you going to dropship, deal with wholesalers? What kind of store front you are going to use. How you are going to, drive consistent traffic to your site.

    There are a lot of elements, that make it a hit or miss. Take everything into consideration and just take action and keep doing till, you get the results you want.

      As Mike pointed out, you're going at this backward.

      You shouldn't let the domain name determine what niche you're in.

      First find a hungry audience, then determine what they want to buy, then create or find the right product(s) to satisfy the need, and lastly set up your web site with a related domain.

    When I hear bargaincove I assume its going to be lots of different items, but thats just me. I assume it would be a general deal site where stuff is priced lower than usual.

      I'm with you there. It's a good name, too. Hop on it!

    I like the domain for a bargain store. Bargain is a wide enough umbrella that you can sell lots of stuff on it. You don't have to confine yourself to just one niche.
