Business Name - How to Choose One


It's very important to get your business name right. You may already have a business name but it's not too late to change it. Let's face it; big organisations change their business and product names all the time.

I named my business Fairweather Associates when I started in 1993. However, when I attended networking events with my name badge on my lapel, people would ask - "Are you lawyers or accountants or architects?" They would come up with everything except what I actually did, which was Professional Speaking and Consulting.

I've retained Fairweather Associates for my business bank account; however, I'm much better know as - howtogetmoresales.com

Here are some things to think about when choosing your business name:

#1 Make it easy to remember - I met a lady from a graphic design business called - "Shout" - I'll always remember that on.

#2 Make it easy to pronounce. People feel uncomfortable if they phone you and pronounce your name incorrectly.

#3 Make it easy to spell

#4 Stir the customer's interest - make them want to ask more - Jones the Plumbers doesn't exactly do it. I met someone from - "Dynamic Plumbers" I had to ask - "What makes you "Dynamic"

#5 Make it positive sounding - optimistic

#6 Make it changeable - "Apex Software" might want to start selling hardware someday.

#7 Make sure it doesn't confuse you with someone else

#8 Make it attract the kind of customers you want -"equi- store.co.uk" sells all sorts of equestrian products to the horsy set.

#9 Make it fun, (if it's appropriate for your business) - "Curl up and Dye" - not for the baldies

#10 Make it quirky - egg.com - would you believe it's a bank

Here are some suggestions to help you choose a name:

#1 Brainstorm - think about how you want people to feel when they see or hear your name

#2 Think of humorous aspects of what you do

#3 Check other names and trademarks on the internet

#4 Check domain names

#5 Does your name sound cheap or expensive

#6 Think about picking a name that starts with "A." That could be important if you want to be listed in a publication such as Yellow Pages
