Too many entrepreneurs underestimate the value of a good business name. The truly aggressive and fearless entrepreneurs will stop the entire world and spend time to develop a company name which identifies what their organisation does and can be used in all of the company’s marketing material.
A successful entrepreneur is not hesitant to get the opinions of experts when he is making a decision. When you are trying to decide on a name for your company, it pays to hire a professional marketing firm to suggest names and company logos that you would own. You can choose to use the suggestions from the professionals, you can combine them into one idea or you can ignore them. But the point is that you brought in input from a professional when you were naming your company.
It is incredibly important to remember just how critical your company name is to the success of your organisation. Many companies poorly plan their names and are forced to change the company name when business conditions dictate it. A focused entrepreneur will work hard to develop a company name that will never go out of style and will always fit the image of his organisation.
One good naming tip is to get really creative and develop your own words. The company name Xerox is a shortened version of the word xerography, which was a word that was created to describe the original method of dry copying that was developed in the 1950’s. These days, people often refer to making a photocopy as making a Xerox. With a little creativity, your company name could have the same impact.
The name of your organisation is one of the most important marketing tools you will ever develop. Take your time and come up with a name that you can be proud of and that your customers will never forget.
