company naming tips

Our experts share insights on naming, branding and starting a new venture.

Trap: Picking a Name That's Not Your #1 Choice.

If you select a name that was your 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th (or yikes) 6th or lower choice, you are sacrificing something. Keep in mind that your name is the keystone of your start-up. Don't sacrifice the success of your business on a second-tier company name.

Tip: Don't Be Different, Be Outstanding.

Any company can choose a name that's different. Your goal should be to select an uber-cool company name that stands head-and-shoulders above your competitors.

Trap: Don't Use Hyphens or Dashes in Your Domain Name.

If you use a domain name with a hyphen or a dash you're telling the world you couldn't obtain the non-hyphen domain name. Hyphens and dashes look unprofessional and will compromise your online status. They’re also incredibly difficult to communicate and you’re quite likely to be sending people to the wrong site, hopefully not your completion. Hyphens only stand as an obstacle between your customers and website!

Tip: Harmonize Your Company Name With Your Strategic Objectives.

Many start-ups fail to align their name with the key strategic objectives of their firms. A great name communicates a core message in a flash of a second.

Short business names are easier to remember and easy to communicate which is the best thing for a business. Short is how you define it but here at Brandings when we say short we generally mean fewer than six letters. Above are our three letter product names and four letter company names but there are other places you may want to look for that perfect name for your new venture.

Bold business names are great to catch the eyes of your target market, bold product names make a splash when they enter the market, catchy company names stay with your customers for years and year and luxurious company names are the ones your customers can?t wait to tell their piers about.

Finding the right company name is difficult and there are a lot of choices at Branding, if you feel overwhelmed or confused where to go, please drop us a line or email and we will be there to help you through it or make some suggestions.
