When you first start a small business there are a wide range of complications. The finances, business location and that’s without creating the perfect name. Finding the right name might seem like the easiest of all the tasks but many people make a series.
One of the first mistakes people make is asking others to think of ideas. You can only choose one name and if when discussing the options with a large crowd you risk alienating the people that want to help. If everyone joins together to think of a name then the final verdict will often be a safe and mundane conclusion. Try to mix up your group with people that think in different ways.
The name of your company needs to stand out and be simple, so try to avoid what’s known as the ‘train wreck’ method. This happens when companies try to create a new word by mixing two that already exist. For example, imagine a fitness center called exegym. Both words are fine for using in a name, but mixed together in this way creates something that should left alone.
But remember that your name still needs to make an impression. You’ll be competing against other companies so make sure to have something that people remember. Search engines such as Google and Yahoo stand out because we remember the words. They wouldn’t have been as successful if they were titled internationalsearchengine.com.
