The meaning of Duudes.­com

Duudes.com logo bundle image.

The word Dude is a very common word, which is a frien­dly and casual way of saying guy. It is also an older word than one might think and has a very int­eres­ting (albeit uncer­tain) history that ties di­rect­ly to the birth of the USA. “Yankee Doodle Dandy”, is a song whose melody exists since app­ro­xima­tely 1750. The lyrics that are associ­ated with the song were written by a British doctor, intent on mocking the Ameri­can Colo­nials. A Yankee was a conde­scen­ding term used by the British at the time that meant Ameri­can colo­nist. Doodle was an unc­ultu­red person, and a Dandy was a person who was int­eres­ted in how he looked, which could have the imp­lica­tion that the person had no subst­ance, in other words was a concei­ted coward. This was the cultu­ral climate that gave rise to the senti­ment that Ame­rica was dis­tinct from Britain and they were unri­ght­fully ruling the coun­try.

In true Ameri­can spirit, the oppre­ssion was crushed in The Revo­lutio­nary War of 1775. The arro­gance of social elitism was put to shame, and the song mocking the Ameri­cans became a war song, enjoyed by all. Later the phrase Doodle Dandy became widely used to mean a fash­ion­able city man, and it became short­ened to Dude by the western ranch­ers who rece­ived city folk and gave them a ranch experi­ence as a form of ent­er­tain­ment and bro­ade­ning their hori­zons. This busi­ness model was called a Dude Ranch. Dudes were city slick­ers, unpre­pa­red for the hard life on a ranch, but it was rec­ogni­zed that they were versed in other ways of life that were alien to the ranch­ers, and there was no animo­sity in the term at that point. Ranch work and a simple life has a way of bring­ing people toge­ther.

With the passing of time, Dude became embra­ced and widely used by hipp­ies, surf­ers, and other casual ind­ivi­dua­lists. They would often stretch the word into Duude, to mean that there was some­thing very impor­tant related to the guy. Perhaps some­thing they needed to share with him, or perhaps they were just very happy to see them. The word has spread into main­stream langu­age for many deca­des, even in other English speak­ing coun­tries around the world, like in the UK and Aus­tra­lia for inst­ance. Dude is associ­ated very closely to a casual and youth­ful env­iron­ment that is open to other people because all are consi­de­red equal. A place with no point of conten­tion. Iro­nic­ally enough, after centu­ries of evolu­tion of meaning and usage, the word Dude is consi­dered ina­ppro­pri­ate in sett­ings which are the oppo­site: Tradi­tion focu­sed, older (feel­ing it is impor­tant to portray being a grown up), judg­ment of others (as to whether or not they are fit for the env­iron­ment), and seeking val­ida­tion through forma­lity, educa­tion, wealth, etc. People like the British at the time Yankee Doodle Dandy was writt­en.

The name Duudes is very simple and stra­ight­for­ward. The site prov­ides access to guys who are casual, frien­dly and appro­ach­able. The site is very easy to get along with.

Given the nature of Duudes.­com and lack of availa­bility of domains of this nature with the .com exten­sion, it could be extre­mely valu­able to help the right buyer build their online empire. Part­icu­larly because its per­for­mance is gua­ran­teed.

The appeal of Duudes.­com

Duudes.com marketing example image.

The name Duudes, has only six, all rounded lett­ers, which make the word­mark feel very short and frien­dly (with few sharp corners that can feel agg­ress­ive). At the same time, the base of the word­mark is per­fec­tly flat with no letters that pro­trude below the word­mark as a j, g, or y might, giving it a feel of self-assu­red­ness and stabi­lity. Pho­netic­ally, is even shor­ter, with only one syll­able. It is clear, easy to prono­unce, and very play­ful, with the double uus, and the cadence repea­ting the D-d. Short names are often very valu­able just for being short. Short and very appea­ling can be astro­nomic­ally expen­sive.

The feel of Duudes is extre­mely plea­sant with very low emo­tio­nal stress. It is casual and extre­mely confi­dent on the one side, and very low in assert­ive­ness on the other, which can be extre­mely appea­ling to people who are not looking for forma­lity or high tech, and / or do not want to be conf­ron­ted with struc­ture and a sales pitch. It is also some­what of a polar­ized name, meaning that people will either not find it int­eres­ting, or find it very att­rac­tive. It may sound like a bad thing, but in marke­ting it is actu­ally a great thing. The huge emo­tio­nal draw of Duudes within the favor­able target audi­ence, could give it huge marke­ting poten­tial with prod­ucts that are aligned with the emo­tio­nal appeal, and a target audi­ence that is recep­tive to it.

@Duudes.com email add­re­sses are also appea­ling in a wide range from very casual to formal, while reta­ining prof­essi­ona­lism and great cre­dibi­lity:

The obvious app­lica­tions of Duudes could be for marke­ting prod­ucts and serv­ices that are a match for the casual and confi­dent, youth­ful and open man who is at peace with the world, or women who are att­rac­ted to that kind of man. For example, Duudes could be a great name for a surf, smoke, skate, or ski supply and ins­truc­tion site. Duudes, with its short, frien­dly aes­the­tic, and pow­erful emotio­nal appeal, could also be inc­redi­bly good for mer­chan­di­sing, which is an amazing bene­fit, since it both inc­rea­ses aware­ness of the site / product / serv­ice, and also prod­uces an income stream, turning a tradi­tio­nal cost center into a profit center. Duudes could be a great apparel brand name, with tee shirts, sand­als, shorts, sun­gla­sses, and / or any of a myriad of prod­ucts that are casual in nature, like bean bags, hamm­ocks, sun­bre­llas, beach towels and gear, casual and com­fort­able outdoor furni­ture, crafts, hook­ahs, etc. Some poss­ible app­lica­tions, like a blog, news, or ent­er­tain­ment site, could be ideal as well, even an ind­ivi­dual rights advo­cacy site. Duudes could also make a great name for a marke­ting firm that focused on a casual target audi­ence, meaning “if you want to sell to dudes, talk to us. It’s our speci­alty.” In the same spirit, it could also be used as a name for a short term employ­ment serv­ice. Need some guys for a day’s work? We have the Duudes.

All together, Duudes.­com is an extremely professional domain, that is very memorable, cool, easy going, and allu­ring, and offers instant credibility in easy going men and male sub­jects.

Reasonable yearly sales exp­ecta­tions in some app­lica­tions of Duudes.­com, could be in excess of $10 Million per year, and if the marke­ting power of the name could incre­ase that, even if it was only 10%, by crea­ting the marke­ting syner­gies that could attract the addi­tional poten­tial cust­omers, and assu­ming a gross margin of 40%, Duudes.­com could be be pur­chased for $400 Thousand and pay for itself within one year.

Price: $34,000


The domain Bundle price for Duudes.com is $34,000, and is payable to EmpireURL via Escrow.com. This is our compensation for releasing the ownership of the domain, and delivering the above mentioned bonuses.

Please refer to disclaimers below, terms and conditions and our privacy policy that govern the release and delivery of the bundle items.

When you purchase Duudes.com, it needs to be transferred to a registrar account in your name. Empire URL covers any expenses that may arise in the release side with our registrar, however, you are responsible for whatever fees your registrar of choice imposes on the transfer. Some registrars charge a fee to transfer in a domain, but usually registrars only charge a one year extension to the domain registration upon transferring a domain into a customer’s account. It is unfair to consider the registration fee as a transaction fee since it is due as a regular expense of owning a domain.

We offer 10% off to first response employees, professional educators, and senior citizens. First response who qualify for a discount are namely, military personnel, paramedics/EMTs, fire rescue, and law-enforcement. If you indeed qualify, we thank you for your service and hereby pay our respects to your contributions. Hopefully we give a little back with your success with Duudes.­com.

Any purchase of 3 or more similarly priced domains can be evaluated for an additional discount, within reason. 10 or more similarly priced domains will result in approximately an additional 10% off.

We increase the price of domains based on a number of factors, including market shifts that may produce opportunities, partnerships that may increase our expenses, and the devaluation of the US dollar. If you were intending to purchase a domain and we recently increased the price before you were able to finalize the decision to buy, let us know to consider holding the price increase for you.

We know that we could get four or five times the bundle price for any of our domains, so we will not accept a low ball offer for Duudes.­com. Also, the bundle price of Duudes.­com is actually for 2 domains. We invest rather extensively into each domain and feel confident in the value that Duudes.­com will bring the customer who takes it to market.

As a rule of thumb, our price is lower than what we feel the monthly marketing budget should be for a venture, so theoretically Duudes.­com will be spending no less than $34,000 every month in its advertising campaigns. With that in mind, over the first 5 years, the price of the name is less than 1.7% of the marketing budget, which is nothing in comparison to the benefits it could bring. The reason our pricing is so far below what we feel is attainable, is because our mission is to help new business ventures succeed in today's challenging market conditions. Discounts will not be considered unless there is a reasonable and fair cause to take the time to consider a discount.

Assessing return on investment is the responsibility of the entrepreneur / investor. If you agree that the return for the price of Duudes.­com will be great, then there is no valid price objection.

Making financial arrangements to cover business expenses and cashflows is another important job of every entrepreneur. If any of our domains is truly unaffordable to any entity, then the chances that entity will be successful using the domain are minimal, simply because the entity lacks the financial resources to be successful. They will not be able to afford employees, essential services, inventories, R&D, startup costs, overhead up to the breakeven point, or any of the myriad of unexpected expenses that are sure to arise in the course of business. There is no valid affordability objection.

Our selection process involves research on the name and it’s meaning in western cultures, assessing all the qualities we list as important in name selection, including distinctiveness, relevance, phonetic appeal, length, memorability, and the emotions the name evokes, among other parameters. We rate our findings and select only the best. Duudes passed our criteria with flying colors.

Traditionally, naming a new business venture involved a group of people brainstorming and coming up with possibilities, then discussing the options, and clarifying preferences, then checking the availability of those names’ domains. With domain names being as scarce as they are today, it is likely the name is not available, and if the domain is not available, then it is back to brainstorming. This iterative process can ultimately end in a name that is not very good because there tends to be lower quality in each iteration. And perhaps equally importantly, it is very time consuming, and expensive. Checking Empire URL’s name recommendations is a great shortcut, since there is additional marketing insight filtered into those names already. Also, checking through the names allows you to get a first impression of the feel of the name when seeing it for the first time. It is very valuable insight, and is practically impossible to get when brainstorming, because you have been playing with words for so long that the names feel like a collection of prioritized possibilities, rather than a business. The result is less time to market and a superior name.

Marketing design allows us to better understand how the name will feel in use, and you get to keep the copyrights with your purchase. We developed the logo of Duudes.­com to be appealing, brandable, trademarkable, and flexible for different marketing needs, including being rendered in black and white, and being scaled down to a 16px X 16px favicon among many others. Having the preliminary marketing also means that you are not starting from scratch developing your site. With a few adjustments, the site design can be ready to launch, saving time and money and creating a very appealing end result. Having professional marketing support from the initial design stage means less problems later on when designs often reveal issues that make them unsuited for some marketing needs.

We feel that our domains deliver superior value to those of competitors simply because of our marketing research, extensive prescreening, rigorous selection process, and experience behind them. In addition to that, Duudes.­com is offered with even greater value with bonuses like being bundled with logo artwork, the extra domain Duudes.org, support images and color palette recommendations. The detailed bonuses included with Duudes.­com are listed in the "Bonuses included with Duudes.­com" section above.

Many online suppliers are guarded, playing in what seems to be an adversarial role with their cards close to their chest. Their online offerings often hide their price, and other information from their customers. Granted, their domains are probably very valuable indeed, and sticker shock can prevent people from contacting the seller, and each entrepreneur has the right to do business as they wish. But at Empire URL we are 100% transparent. Our offering is very straightforward. We research and screen hundreds of thousands of names and source those with the most potential, we then develop marketing designs to enhance the power of the name, and provide the package to our customers with the intent that our efforts will serve them in building the online empire they dream of. Our efforts are in line with our customer's interests, and our transactions are intended to be a win / win.

In marketing we use statistical data to validate our interpretation of market opportunities. And of course there is great value in it, particularly in the feedback areas to better understand how people are engaging with our offering, where they are coming from, and what preferences are met and unmet. This process should be the core of the marketing evolution of a company. However, in areas where a market has not yet experienced a product (prior to launch), it can be very difficult to use statistics because there is no reliable data available. Even a focus group of target market customers, which is very advisable, can be tricky to manage and can give wildly incorrect data, even when well managed.

There is a phenomenon that challenges data. It is the opposite of Murphy's Law, and could be expressed as "If the business can be successful, it will be." And it relates to the drive of the entrepreneur. It is a severely underrated marketing influence. The passion to bring something new into the world, the strength of courage, facing competition, and uncertainty, while carrying the weight of responsiblity for employees and the effects of the business in the community. It is sheer will power, and it is fueled by belief. if you, as an entrepreneur, feel that Duudes.­com is the right name for your business, and you know it down to the core of your bones, you just know…
