Creative website name needed!

24 replies
Hi all,

I am creating a website where me and my JV partners sell our music that we have made royalty free. We also do custom track creation for customers.

I need a site name. Something catchy and memorable, and that can (dos not have to) include italian music lingo.

I came up with:

crescendoartists.com

crap I know, but I am sure you can some up with something better!

Thanks,

Mubarak

    That domain name is free and I suggest you pounce on it.

    No need to get "creative." What you want is something with an implied benefit to the user.

    As a classically-trained composer myself, I was about to throw in some "creative" suggestions... but then I read Colm's post, and the marketer in me kicked in again.

    Colm's right. Go with his suggestion.

      Where are your prospects in the buying process? If they arrive at your site are they ready to buy a product, or are they gathering info?

      I don't think I would concern myself with distinguishing against large competitors. If you go with some long tail keywords in your SEO strategy confusing you with your competition could actually be a good thing.

      They are already established and worked hard to establish a name for themselves and you can piggyback off that name.

    Not necessarily, saq3m.

    I have mixed beliefs - I believe you should have a memorable name, unless it's just a quick gig or whatever, but also do as colmodwyer said. (Michel Fortin's free e-book, "10 Commandments of Power Positioning" could help.)

    Italy's Royalty Free? I can't think of anything better just yet, if I do I'll let you know.

    I'm new to these boards but in other forums it's typically not a good idea to ask for good domains unless you don't plan on registering any yourself. Then again, I haven't found WarriorForum anything like they said on ********** -- here it's actually mature and civil for the most part, with a good set of intelligent contributors...

    edit: Heh, it's automatically censored.

    Also, royaltyfreerhythms.com sounds catchy, for me at least.

    For crying out loud, you're supposed to be web savvy you lot!!

    DO NOT EVER search for a domain you want, just to "see if it's free".

    Not unless you want "This domain available for $500" as the next step.

    I learnt this the hard way. I made up a new word, no such dictionary term, meaning "a big little thing" or a little big thing, whichever. Knowing no better I checked to see if it was available. Yep.

    Got my logo made up, favicon, other such stuff, all my contents mentioned the biglet.com site and...

    www.biglet.com

    DON'T search for a domain until you have a short-list that you really want and a credit card in your hand ready to go.

    You never know who's looking at what you searched for. I don't know quite how they do it but there seems to be an entire business model based around snapping up domains on the off-chance you've already had cards, logo, stationary etc made up and will pay stupid money for it. I've even seen a ebook on it.

    And before you say "well maybe you shouldn't search on some seedy little site" that was with godaddy.


    Be warned. If I'm after a domain I feel uncomfortable searching google for it let alone checking the domain. You'll find the "thanks" button down and to the left

      I've heard of these kinds of things happening. Never happened to me. But I'd love to know other ways to avoid it for the future. I would've expected a mammoth like GoDaddy to have security measures in place for this.

    Back to the top, try using Keyword Elite or similar to find what terms are getting the most searches compared to the least opposition. Add .com on the end. Done.

      These are my suggestions. I am not pinpointing a niche, but the domain names get across what you are offering in a concise way that is easy to remember.




      NoRoyaltyTunes.com

      NoRoyaltySongs.com

      RoyaltyFreeMusic.com

      FreeTunes.com

      NoRoyaltyArtists.com

        Have you thought of looking at it from a prospective clients point of view - if they were looking for something like this - what would they look for? What would your prospectve market be searching for?

    thanks nitro

    but I would like ALL of you to STEP OUT OF MARKETER MODE!!!

    most of our customers come from places like the WF, not search engines, and also word of mouth. Big-ass site names are NOT easy to convey in that way...

      How about "digimelodies.com"? Is it a big-ass name?

      I believe that this one is easy to remember and it has the potential to stick to people's minds if marketed properly...

      I hope you like it!

    Hi Saq3m

    Had to wiki for italian terms (years since I have seen a piano)

    ConBrioBeats
    BellaMusica
    Virtual-osos
    TrebleandBass
    MusicSmithsInc
    LondonBeatSmiths

    Wasn't sure what sort of music you guys did some went pretty generic. All the best and good luck.
