Home Business- Top 5 Ways To Choose A Name For Your Business

Have you yet chosen a name for your business?

One of the most important things that your business needs is a name. Your business name will probably be the first thing all of your customers will see.

Naming your business is not as tricky as you might think. You just need to choose a name that tells something about you and your business, and which your target market can easily remember without any effort on their part.

A good basic idea is to use your last name followed by what you do. Like Walton’s Feed and Supply or Anderson’s Plumbing. You could also add the town where you live in to the name like Anderson’s Little Rock Plumbing.

Or, if you are targeting your local market, you can just leave out your last name and just name your business ‘Little Rock Feed and Supply’. Obviously naming your business this way sounds like you are the first choice for your local people, and this way, you would get more customers than other businesses in the same niche.

Or, let’s say that you are about to deal with some big companies. In that case, you might want your business to have a corporate sounding name. Think of a word to describe your business then add the word “Consulting”.

If you want to go for a trendier market you may want to have an informal name instead. You can name your business after an animal; this is a fantastic way of branding your business especially if your budget is tight. I will give an example of a business named after an animal. Can you remember Gecko? They named their business after the gecko lizard which they use on everything they own. What do you remember when you are thinking of car insurance?

Or maybe your best bet would be to choose a short name for your business. Think of two or three possible words that describe your business, and then shorten the words to make it one word. So you end up with IHOP (International House of Pancakes). This is a great way to express your business to your customers without using a long and hard to remember name which would obviously confuse and bewilder your clients and prospects.

If the above tips are not helpful to you, and you still cannot come up with a name, then just play around with words until you come across a name which describes your business exactly the way you want it. The advantage of naming your business in this way is that the name you choose would be unique to your business.

Whatever you do, make sure your business name is easy to remember, pronounce and spell. If you make your business name long and confusing, you will end up losing prospects!

After you have chosen a name for your business, do a quick search on the internet to make sure that no one else is using them. You don’t want to name your business with something that someone else is already using, right?

So now you can see how easy it is to pick up a name for your business. What you may not know, however, is where and how you can find profitable business opportunities.
