Last week, we wrote about how .Me is all about… well, me. It is used for personal branding, a clear „this is me“ ending on a personal domain, behind a name, a brand or a personal stand. The thing is, both people and companies sometimes get to be quite selfless, and sometimes .ME can actually be all about someone else. About you, for example.
Mercedes recently made a huge leap in personalizing customer service and putting the consumer at the center of the brand- with a special Mercedes.Me. The focus of this service is not on the Mercedes- the .Me stands for you, the user, the consumer and how Mercedes can make your life easier. The Mercedes.Me platform features five key areas, which could just as easily be stand-alone .me domains t: “Move Me”, “Connect Me”, “Assist Me”, “Finance Me” and “Inspire Me”, all of them aimed at helping you interact with the world of Mercedes-Benz int he best way possible.After all, their motto is The best or nothing.
But Mercedes is not the only company using a .Me domain to cater to the needs of their customers. Visa’s digital payment brand, for example, is a very simple and effective V.Me, a paltform that serves as your own digital wallet. As Visa’s global head of eCommerce Jennifer Schulz put it- it’s created to help you shop online simply and securely.
Let’s not forget that you can tell someone what to do with a .Me, invite them to take action or entice social interaction. Connect.Me does exactly what its name says, Facebook’s spinoff app Sling.Me dares you to sling photos back and forth, Vizualize.Me invites you to turn your professional experience into eye-catching graphics.
Think of all the things you can do with .me, to .me, for .me, the list of things topics circling around .me is virtually endless.
If you have no need to get personal, you may want to choose one of the options above. I have to disappoint you, the domain aweso.me is already taken (and not by Barney Stinson), and it’s apparently owned by someone with a great sense for humor because once it loads the whole page just states „Can’t Touch This“.
Quite a lot of brands jumped on the opportunity to use .Me as it so fortuitously responds to their brand names. Ti.me (Yes, it’s The Times!), but the internet informs me that there is a few hundred words ending with .me, so if you’re fearso.me or handso.me, do something extre.me or like to take it easy sip some coffee and string some rhy.me, there’s domains for you still.
I hope you caught the gist now. Not only is the .Me the most personal domain- it can also be the most selfless, enticing, funny, and everything else you want it to be. And you can rest assured that you are in good company with .Me- just take a look at some of the success stories we are really proud of on our blog, or tune in later this week when we hand pick some of the coolest and most creative .Me domains.
