Bizzy Mama Hosting. Old Kid Photography. Addie Kat Boutique. Your business name is very important to your success. In essence, you’re starting your brand from that point on. The goal is to have your name synonymous with the product or service your business is based on. When they see or hear your business name, they should automatically think “Oh yeah! I’ve heard of them! They sell hairbands and they’re awesome!”. So choosing a name requires a lot of thought.
One major factor in determining a name for your business would be availability of a URL. You can check to see if a URL is available right here on the Bizzy Mama website. Try it out!
Another determining factor in addition to the URL is relevance. You want to tell what you are providing, but in your own unique way. Let’s say you are selling girls headbands. If you look, the URL girlsheadbands.com is a URL that is already in use. A way to distinguish yourself would be to think of something that could compliment your style and the girls headbands. For instance, let’s put a pun on it and look up Crowning Glory Headbands. Go check it out. You can see that the URL is available and it is a cute name play on headbands. Something that is catchy.
Another thing to do would be to check out your competitors. You don’t want a name that closely resembles another headband website. You can do a quick Google check with your keywords that you want used and see if there’s anything similar out there.
Remember, this is the start of your brand. The name sets the tone for your business and could mean the difference between a widely known name or something that could just fade away in the blend of websites.
