Help me pick from these brand names

by kevd10 22 replies
So I am launching an e-commerce store in the Outdoor hiking/activity niche.

So far I have narrowed the possible brand names down to:

Hikers Stuff
Hike Stock
Hikers Rig
Treking Outfit

The .com is available for all of the above.

Any preferences or additional suggestions welcome.

Much appreciated.

  • None of them look like a branded domain to me.They look like exact match domains. Anyways if I had to choose, I would go for hikestock(dot)com.

    Not a fan of any of them. Off the top of my head, I'd go with something like HikingPost.com or HikersTradingPost.com.

      Why 'post'? Don't really understand the relevance of that word

        A trading post is defined as...

        "a store or small settlement established for trading, typically in a remote place."

        Look at SierraTradingPost.com.

      I am an avid hiker and I tend to agree with the comment above. Of the ones you list I think hikers stuff is best.

    From all these four propositions I will choose this second one: Hike Stock. But maybe if you want to create a brand you should try to think about a less connote name. I mean less one all.

    I'm also not a fan of either of them. Why not use something like TheHikingStore.com? I've just bought a similar domain (not in the hiking niche) and it seems to be a good one as it's pretty obvious from the domain name what the site will be about.

    Also maybe hiking is too broad and you need to think of some umbrella term like outdoor pursuits?

    Out of those I like hikersStuff and hikersRig. But hikersStuff has double "s" in it. So I prefer hikersRig

    I'd look at something more memorable, like AdventuresAfoot.com, with a tag line like "This gear was made for walkin'..."

      I think hikersStuff.com and hikersRig.com is shorter and more memorable than adventuresafoot.com. And they have the exact meaning - stuffs for hikers. Adventuresafoot.com seems more general name.
      Just my opinion

      I like John's domain name because it allows more room to market other related outdoor items

      You never know down the road if you need that wiggle room

      My experience is restrict your niche too much and it's hard to grow the site beyond what you started with

      Especially in this time frame of authority sites

      Hiking maybe hot for a while and then something else becomes popular or it's hard to find content etc... etc...

      I have found working with students that they failed because the niche they were working in was too restrictive for growth and they could not weather out the ups and downs a narrow niche experiences

      Having something a little broader you can add new related focused niches to the mix and still grow

    Hikers Stuff sounds good to me. Because you are selling stuff for hikers. Clean, clear, easy to understand and easy to discern the chief benefit from the domain name.

    The Hikers Stuff is the best.

    Though it is not niche specific, it can potentially earn you more.

    In the long run.

    Fair enough...

    They say opinions are like butts, everyone has one and most of them stink.

    He asked for my opinion, I gave it to him. If it's worth what he paid for it, so be it.
