"Measure twice, cut once"
In times of economic uncertainty, it is essential for businesses to find ways to cut costs and weather the storm. However, cutting corners can lead to detrimental effects, especially when it comes to managing an online presence and protecting a brand.
At Lexsynergy, we understand the challenges brands face during the cost-of-living crisis, and therefore we are writing this blog to educate businesses on how they can reduce domain management and online brand enforcement costs without compromising on the quality of service.
We have all heard the phrase "cutting corners," but in the realm of domain management and brand protection, it can lead to serious consequences. Let us explore some practical examples to understand the risks associated with cutting corners:
By neglecting proper security measures, such as SSL certificates, Anycast DNS or robust firewall configurations, brands leave their domains vulnerable to cyber criminals. A security breach on mission critical domains can inflict financial losses, compromised customer data, and a damaged reputation. Cutting corners on domain security is simply not worth the risk.
Optimising a domain portfolio is crucial for maintaining a strong online presence. Neglecting to register, renew, or monitor domains regularly can result in losing valuable assets to domain squatters or competitors. Cutting corners in domain management can harm a brand's visibility, impact SEO efforts, and ultimately lead to missed opportunities and decreased revenue.
Proactive monitoring and enforcement of Intellectual Property online is crucial for protecting brands against unauthorised use and infringement. Cutting corners in this area can lead to missed instances of trademark infringement, counterfeit sales and unauthorised use of Intellectual Property. Failing to enforce rights quickly and diligently can dilute a brand's value, confuse consumers, and result in lost revenue.
At Lexsynergy, we recognise the need for businesses to adapt to the cost-of-living crisis without sacrificing the integrity of their online presence. Here's how we help brands cut costs without compromising on the quality of their domain portfolio:
