Rules for Naming a Startup
Rules for Naming a Startup:- When we start a new business a flake of bravery is always required. Through the internet, e-commerce, domain names, apps, social media handles, etc naming a new business is no longer the charisma-from-a-hat process it used to be.
- Avoid names that are hard to spell
Make the name simple. Don’t make the probable customers getting confused about how to find your business online. Avoid correcting the misspelled version of your name.
- Don’t end domains in .com.
Having the destination domain name is not always practical. Integrating an alternate top-level domain (TLD) extension can be a clever loophole, such as the original del.icio.us extension. These types of endings also signify that you are new, different, web-connected, app-related, etc. You can add description type “names”,” “solutions” and “systems,” among others.
- Check out if the name is catchy.
Don’t choose a boring name for your business, also don’t choose something that’s too “out there.” You always want that your employees will be able to say where they work without delay, and you want your name to ring with your target audience.
- Get feedback on the name.
Emerge with 5 or 10 names and then run them by friends, family members, and trusted colleagues. Also, get feedback from your target audience. Make sure that the name doesn’t have any negative.
- When said aloud make sure the name sounds good
Sometimes names seem fine on paper but sound horrendous when said clearly. Make sure people aren’t confused to spell when it names audibly
- Make sure that you are personally happy with the name.
As the business owner you have to live with the name for a long time, so make sure you are happy with it. Also, believe that your startup name will vibrate with your customers.
