Company Naming Secrets
We’ll, there are none. It’s just all common sense. First, you have to decide what you want from your name. Some people aren’t sure about future scope of activity of the company they are starting, so they want a name that won’t be too restrictive. Others want a name that conveys a specific message – like 9 Dollar Haircuts or 24/7 Plumbing.
Who is going to name your company? A. You, B. Naming Agency. C. Crowdsourcing service. Forget B. – it’s the worst option (too expensive). Owners, their family or friends are frequently best “namers”. Still, some people still can’t do it. Naming agencies charge a lot of money for supposed expertise they have, but there is no evidence to suggest that naming agencies are any better at naming companies than other people.
Your last option is to outsource naming. This is how it’s done at PickyDomains.com (we’ve named over 1500 companies since 2007). First, you deposit $50 and specify what you want. Then you start receiving hundreds of suggestions. You select a winning suggestions. If none of our suggestions fit, you get a refund.
