Help in finding business name.

by yosk 14 replies
Hello guys!

I want to create my business (that is related about video production and creation) , but i'm having trouble to find a good name.
I read some tips online , and used a lot of "domain name generators" (The Best Domain Name Generator Ever: Impossibility! is one of the best. i'm not related to the owner ,I'm just reccomending )

Anyway...
I do searches all day long and search for hours each day for some business name for my business.

And I've got one quetion.

The question is this : When I search on Google for business name (lets say I want my business be called "5 point media" [which is already an exsiting one] )
Do I need to search with -"- -"- or without it?
I mean. When I enter google.com and have some idea about business name.
To search like this : "5 point media"
or like this : 5 point media

?

Thanks.

    I wouldn't stress over the domain name - you obviously want it to be short and contain your keyword but most likely, you will be fine by adding a prefix or suffix. (I did this and I'm doing ok)

      I mean to the fact that if I search 5 point video (just like that , it has 1,720,000,000 results)
      and If I search for "5 point video" it has only 298,000 results.

      How to dothe search better , what extacly and how to search?

      Gotya , I'm going to do this quick

      This can be tricky.

      TIP:
      Always try and keep your domain short as possible? Also, if I could give you some advice try and select a domain name that is catchy and easy to remember.

      If you want to create brand awareness then this is the best way to go!

      Regards

      OP - Your business name is an important thing - but it is less important than almost anything else.

      Do you even have a business? Make something up and get out there and sell. If you asked many of my clients what my business name is, they would probably have to look it up! They know me. They know what I do.

      Stop this fruitless search and go sell something. A name will come to you. You can always change it once you get rocking. Hell - call it "Get Rockin Videos" - it doesn't really matter yet at your stage of the game.

      Until you have made at least one sale - you don't a business...you have a dream.
      That was really motivating and helping !
      I really MUST stop waisiting my time about not that important stuff..
      Thanks buddy .

      Concentrate more on getting customers and less on name, logo and other glitter.
      You are right , I should really stop with this glitter things..

      I need to do a couple of sales and then think about things like that..
      Thank you Jason.

    When you find a few you like, check that the domain is available!

        I know a lot of SEO guys will tell you to get an exact domain match, etc. But ultimately a name is a name, it's an identifier, and hopefully it has an arresting/intriguing quality to it. Ideally it should be easy to remember and look good on a business card, especially if it is offline.

        Myself, I obsessed over a business name and had an interim name until I found one that works. I picked it as much as it would cause people to check me out, if nothing else, something out-of-the-box.

        A process which I am glad is over, because I have much more important things to dwell upon.
