How a Business Name Generator can help you

online-business-domain-name-generator-300x197Thinking up a new and original name for a business is never easy. In today’s world of domain names and websites, it’s even worse. Twenty or thirty years ago, if you wanted to start Bud’s Used Books in Topeka, you didn’t worry if there was a store of the same name in Syracuse. Today, you have to worry because you will probably be selling online.

Fortunately, there’s a new kind of online application that can help you name or rename a company. It’s called a business name generator, and if you can type, you can use one. All you have to do is type in the name you plan to use or the product you plan to sell and it will give other names.

If Bud typed in Bud and books, it would give him several choices. More importantly, the business name generator would give him a number of options that were not being used by anybody else. That way, Bud could have an original name for his business that was not being used by somebody in another city. He would have an original domain name for his online sales.

A name generator can even show you what kinds of domain names are available. If Sally was setting up a new business called Shoemaster, she could see if there was a Shoemaster.com or were other domain names such as Shoemaster.net or Shoemaster.org available.

Online Business Name Generation

If you are setting up a new online business, a business name generator can enable you to locate an original name. More importantly, it can give you a name that will help you get noticed and drive business to your site. If you’re planning to sell homemade socks online, you could find a catchy name that will sell those products.

The generator can tell you if socks.com and homemadesocks.com have been taken. It could also show you alternatives such as socko or socky. This way, you will not have to pay for a name somebody else has registered. Many popular domain names have been registered by entrepreneurs that make their living selling back names. You can find a name that you will not have to pay for.

All you would do is type the word socks into the generator and see what comes up. The generator can give you both a domain name and a company name. That way, you may not need to rename a company in order to go online. You could even start a second business with your new name.

Another reason why you would want to create an original name is to get something that you can copyright. There is always a possibility that the name you want to use has been copyrighted by somebody else. That way, you can get a new name you can copyright yourself and protect your business identity.

Staking out a distinctive identity for your business has always been important to success. In today’s world of online business, it is even more important than ever before. It’s also vital that you take the effort to create a distinctive name and identity for the business from the beginning.

A name generator can help you accomplish that task and establish a new brand or identity for an existing business. Whether you’re expanding your existing enterprise or establishing a new business, creating a distinctive identity is vital to the success of your brand. Today’s name generators can help you accomplish that task for free.

The Solution to the Naming Dilemma

give-me-a-name-2If you’re like most entrepreneurs you’ve probably spent far more time designing, creating and perfecting your product than thinking up a name for it. The truth is that naming whatever you plan to sell or distribute was probably the last thing on your mind.

Now that you’re ready to go to market you’re probably scratching your head and asking how to name your product. If your expertise is in sales or engineering or technology you may not even know where to begin or how to begin. Here’s a solution to your problem that you probably never thought of: hold a naming contest.

How a Naming Contest Can Help You

There are websites that let you hold contests where writers submit suggestions for names for your products. You put up a cash prize that can be as low as $50 and wait for the competition to end. Then you go over the submissions and choose the one that you like the best.

Think of it, you can have dozens or even hundreds of creative people from all over the world competing for the right to rename your company. You will be able to concentrate on developing your product and readying it for market. If you have no knowledge of marketing, advertising or writing you won’t have to spend a lot of time researching and learning those fields.

Instead you can have experienced professionals handle the chore for you. Best of all you will not have to pay them until the work is actually done. That means you take no real risks. Yet you can have a professional write the wording that will describe your business or your product for the world.

Why You Should have a Professional Create Your Name

We all know that a really bad name can sink a product, a production or even a business fast. The wrong words on the box or the website will drive the customers away. Worse customers may spend their money thinking your product is something that it is not. That means you’ll end up having to give refunds and lose money.

Hiring a professional to create the names for a product can help you avoid this dilemma. They can write the words and all you will have to do is approve them. Even if you don’t exactly like the words they chose the input that a professional writer or marketer can give to your enterprise will be invaluable.

They can point out markets and means of advertising that you may not have thought of. Such a person can also help you with modern marketing methods such as search engine optimization (SEO) and social networking. Those methods rely heavily upon searches which are based on words.

A professionally-written name is one of the best ways of staking out ground for your product in the virtual world and on the social networks. There will be a distinctive name for your creation that will be easy for customers to remember and find.

Instead of wondering how to name a product you should harness the creativity and ingenuity of professional writers by holding a naming contest. If it is conducted properly such a contest can generate a name that will be the equivalent of thousands or tens of thousands dollars worth of free advertising.

A Name Is An Investment

apple_rainbow_logoSomething that a lot of business people forget is that a name is an investment. The right name can increase the value of a product or a business. Some names can even sell products, for example Apple sells computers and Coke sells soda pop.

The names Coke and Apple are now worth billions of dollars because of their appeal to the customer. When people invest in Apple and Coca-Cola stock they are investing in the name as much as in the company. In some cases a name can be the most valuable thing that a company owns.

So any money you invest in thinking up names for a product or naming a store can be money well spent. A highly creative product name or a catchy name for a store could actually increase the value of a business. It could make that product or business more attractive to investors as well as customers.

To be valuable a name must be creative and original. It also has to effectively reflect what the product is without confusing or confounding the potential customer. Creating such a brand is obviously a tall order for a person who does not know how to name a production.

Fortunately there is a very cost effective means of finding an original name for a business or a product. This means can actually get the services of dozens of talented writers that have lots of experience thinking up new names for a very low price.

This means is a naming contest and it can be one of the best investments that you make. In an online naming contest you put up a sum of prize money which can be as low as $50. Once this is done writers compete by entering names. Only the winner gets paid and you don’t pay until you have a satisfactory name that meets your criteria.

This is the risk free way to rename a company and it is more effective than a business name generator. Actual human beings with thoughts, emotions, feelings, creativity, imaginations and intuitions will be thinking up your new name. You name will actually appeal to customers because a real person created it.

Names Created by Real People

Spending money on a brand name generated by a computer program makes absolutely no sense. The computer-generated name can meet legal and search engine criteria but it will not have the extra flair or emotion that will appeal to customers. After all your customers are human beings, not algorithms. Customers these days want the human touch more than ever.

You also need a name that effectively conveys your values and the value the customers will get for the dollar. In today’s economy people are more reluctant to spend money than ever before. They need every nudge they can get in order to open their wallets and pull out their credit cards.

Since a name is an investment you need to increase the value of that investment by spending money to create one that actually appeals to customers. Effective businesspeople have long known that their enterprise’s name is one of the most valuable possessions they have.
