In opening a business the first thing that comes to your mind is, ” How shall I name it? “. Perhaps, the first choice that you could possibly generate is naming after your name.You wanted to be known and eventually gain popularity in your business venture through it .
I had encountered lots of difficulties when I was still thinking and gathering ideas about my business name. I even tried to browse numerous websites regarding generating business names ideas but had not decided which to select.
As I was driving my way to Department of Trade and Industry to register my business, I then realized that I should just have to make it simple and easy to remember….Something that should run in my bloodstream just like my genes.
I have then decided that it should be my ( drum roll …. ) last name.
And I began thinking about my Mom. Her popularity of being a high school teacher.
The Ma’am Valero. Her brand as a teacher that opened out in my own business venture. When people passed by in my shop they would wonder if Ma’am Valero is still teaching. There was even one time when a certain man approached me about my Mom after seeing the car signage bearing my business name and even messages in my Facebook page, some of them were my mom’s students. I even gained clients who used to be mom’s students.
My mother who had already established popularity in Sogod and Borbon Cebu of being teacher made a mark even in my business. The name JTValero Electrical Services which is basically came after my own family name must be known and formidable not only in north of Cebu but also within the city as an electrical contractor.
This business name had given me peace, courage and endurance in all the struggles plus having my mom as my inspiration. That’s really big plus…
Allow me then to give you simple hints of generating business name ideas with credits to Yanik Silver.
1. The name needs to sound good when it’s said aloud. Make sure it easy to utter
2. Use a name that has meaning to it and conveys a benefit. If you heard it you’d know right away what it is.
3. Avoid Web 2.0-ish syndrome. Simply make correct spelling. Please avoid “u” in using “you”
5. Use specifics. Don’t use a generic name that doesn’t mean anything. I like names that take advantage of details such as numbers and days.
7. Test it out on Google AdWords. One of the great features of the “find keywords” tool on AdWords is that it will list similar search phrases, along with how many global and local monthly searches each are getting.
I hope I can help you in finding your business name and somehow you already know the sentimental value of my business name ( tissue please….)
