When buying a domain name, always go for the .com first. It might not be an easy thing to do since most names are hard to get for they are taken. Make sure it's catchy and easily pronounced. Keep away from names that have more than one way of spelling them and leave out any hyphens or dots if possible! Make it memorable!
Do you use Google Analytics? Did you know by adding a "Static Fbml" tab (in applications) to your Facebook Fan Page and inserting the html code for Google Analytics, you can get an even more in-depth look at who is visiting your page. Do it up!
