When I first started blogging I remember I had the hardest time trying to come up with the name for my site. I just sat there and brainstormed several different names while trying to come up with clever ones. I think that to me was the hardest part of starting my blog. Finally, I decided on yours truly, The Fit Hanna. Why? Well, I knew I wanted to write about my fitness goals and whether I’d achieve them or not. I also knew I wanted to write about finances and other life struggles. So, The Fit Hanna just seemed like it could cover most of those bases; writing about being financially, emotionally, and physically fit.
You want to start a business or already have one, but you don’t have a name. The name of your business is very important. It is what is going to attract people. The name is what they will use to search for you and tell other people about your business as well.
Think about what your business offers. Depending on what your business offers you can incorporate that into the name. Maybe you have a cupcake shop, and specialize only in cupcakes; then you could name it “Specialty Cupcakes” or “Cupcake Cuties”, or something like that.
Make sure you think very hard about your business name. Don’t make it too complicated for people to misunderstand you or do any special spellings. You want your customers to be able to find you easily. If they can’t spell your company name they won’t be able to search and find you.
Don’t just pick one name. Make a list of a few options and number them from favorite to least favorite. Be sure to search and see if the name is already taken. Sometimes just doing a general search will eliminate some of your options.
Once your business name is registered you’re in the clear! Congratulations, nobody else can use your business name.
