Good Names

Intellatec - good names | new business namesWhat makes a Good Business Name?

While we’ve named this blog “Good Names” what we’re really after here is to develop great new business names or great new product names and that’s what we’re really here to help you do.

Firstly we want anyone reading this, possibly people who are frustrated with the business naming process to relax.  The process and the pressure to find the perfect business name may be overwhelming at times but that’s natural and very healthy.

Our Business Naming Team wants to share a few pointers with you.  One thing to consider is, what is it exactly that you’re looking for in a new business name?  Now think outside of the box with this one.

Don’t just look at how you see your business but ask yourself how other people see your business as well.  When considering new business names you might want to ask your company stakeholders for instance your employees, senior executive team and Board of Directors.

You might also want to consider how your external stakeholders like potential clients, suppliers, vendors and even community leaders like or feel about your business name ideas.  Brandings has some really great information available to you in an article entitled “Good New Business Names” we think you’ll enjoy and it’s free on our site, just follow the link.

We also think it’s a good idea to ask friends and family, particularly if you’re questioning if your business name idea might be confusing or possibly hard to read.

    Well the first thing you should consider is what kind of real estate are you selling or even renting. Are you going into commercial real estate and selling to companies or are you selling private homes to families. You might say that you’re going to do all types of real estate and that’s just something you want to consider as well. Consider your location, are you in a specific city, focusing on a town or region?

    If you are looking for a broad and nonspecific name I would highly recommend a “Brandable” name or a name without any specific meaning. These names are generally easy to spell and you could always add “Real Estate” to the end of it. Have a look at our “Brandable Real Estate Names” and you’ll get the idea.

    Thanks for your question and I hope this helps.

    Thank you for your comment and we would love to help you in naming your real estate company based in India.

    It is quite difficult for me to be able to just pick a name that would perfectly for your real estate company because there are equally as many types of business ideas as there are types of real estate companies.

    The first thing I would suggest is that you take a look at our Brandings Catalog for some inspiration. We have great names for commercial real estate companies, perfect names for a residential real estate company and then we have business names for both commercial and residential real estate. Even if you look at these names and one doesn’t pop right out at you, you many just be inspired.

    If you are looking to develop the name on your own, there are other places to look for inspiration, the first being your business plan. Look at your business plan to see what it is that you are going to do better than other real estate companies that you will be competing with.

    Take a look at your real estate company’s mission statement. Does your statement say, you will be trust worthy, no project is too big or small or will you specialize in first time buyers?

    Look for a name that will stand out from the competition and always make sure that you can secure the matching domain name.
    Lastly, think like your customer because ultimately they are the ones that will be judging your name selection.

We try really hard the help people understand that a great business name comes from within and those names need to come complete with an exact match .com domain name and that name needs to easy to spell and understand.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom ddo I come across
    a blog that’s equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head.
    The issue is an issue that tooo few folks are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy thaqt I came across this
    in my hunt for something relating to this.
