03-09-2014, 04:27 AM

:confused: Starting a business is hard and even more stressful is choosing the right name for your business. Your business name will always depend on you, after all you will be the one operating and representing it. But

1. Don't be a copycat - You might say that it's obviously against the law but some start ups do use this lame technique in trying to ride with a successful name brand. Ex. naming your business based on a popular movie, or naming a device eye-pad that sounds like Apple's Ipad.

2. Choose a unique/positive/fun sounding name - Google and Nike are good examples of unique and fun names.

3. Avoid names that are difficult to pronounce or hard to spell - You got to aim for quick recall.

4. Don't create a name based on current fads or trends - Because there's a big possibility that your business will go away when the trend does. and

5. Check if the domain name is also available - Having an online presence is a must in today's business world so better check if the domain name of the business name that you're considering is still available.

That's it! I hope you've learned a thing or two from this topic and if you have additional tips in mind, please feel free to hit the reply button and share. Thanks and have a nice day! :)

Great points, especially number 5! Checking for domain name availability is important but if you're out of luck you can settle for something that has your name in it plus an added word. Number 1, don't be a copycat when naming your business is related to 5 also. If you have a similar sounding name with another company while online the search engines will give more relevance to the older domain (in the beginning at least). Plus, product names like the one you suggested make customers think about Chinese knockoffs :)

This depends on where are you incorporating. You would have to check your local business register. And Google obviously :)

1. Make Sure The Domain Name is Available Before Choosing a Business Name
2. Trademark The Business Name
3. Choose a Business Name That is Unique But Not Abstract
4. Maintain Your Visual Identity
5. Avoid The Play On Words

Remember that your name is a very important part of branding and marketing your business. The business name will also be used to help with search engine optimization (SEO) so it is worth investing time and money into choosing the best one.

As you start to build your brand, you don't need the hassle of trying to fight the confusion of your relation with another company. Do a fuzzy search on Google and see what comes up. Chances are, those companies with names similar to yours, will have a page one listing on Google well before you get there. You don't want your customers thinking that's you.
