If you are launching a new business, you are probably in search of the perfect name for that business. But what should it be? What catchy title is most likely to attract the attention of customers? If you want to select a name for your home based business, start simply and don’t over think the process. Often times, the most obvious thing is that which we overlook because we are too busy searching for the perfect answer.
You can start to select a name for your home based business by taking out a notepad and writing the type of business onto a piece of paper. What is it that you will be selling? Will it be a product or service? Next, think of ways to make the title unique and interesting. If you are the sole proprietor of a business, perhaps you want to include your name in the business title. For example, if Jane is selling pet bed designs and other products, perhaps her business could be named “Jane’s Pampered Pets.” Whatever the title, it should be indicative of the product or service that you are offering. A business name will draw more attention if it makes people smile so, if possible, try to add a little humor to the title. If people enjoy the name of your business, their interest will be peaked as to what else they could enjoy about the business itself.
Before making a final decision on a name for your home based business, make sure that you check with your state’s business office to confirm that your title is unique. You don’t want to begin a new business venture with any problems over trademark infringement, so take the time to do your research on other business names. Besides, your business is unique. It is all about you and the service or product that you provide, so you would want to give it a name that is equally unique.
When all is said and done, be sure that you select a name for your home based business that you will enjoy displaying on business cards and promoting both locally and nationally. The name of your business is the first thing that people will notice. Even before they surf your website, call you on the phone or send an order, they will already be aware of your business name. Make them smile and they will be eager to do business with you.
