More challenging than ever, naming a company or product requires an expert brand namer
Too many companies blunder into alligator-infested waters when naming a company, product, or service. The result?
- A clunky name that never catches on
- A new name, but no available website address
- A cease-and-desist letter from another company’s lawyer, demanding an immediate stop to using “your” name
Rushing the naming process, taking a misstep, and falling into this quagmire can be incredibly frustrating, time consuming, and expensive.
How to name a business?
While it’s extremely important to give a new business, product, or service a great name, it’s also extremely difficult. And though many creative agencies offer this service, their solution usually involves throwing an unwitting art director or copywriter into these alligator-infested waters.
Unfortunately, the statistics for this branding specialty area are frightening: 60% of new company, product, and service names chosen and implemented are already owned by someone else! After launching a newly named product or service, many companies receive a “cease and desist” letter, forcing them to retract, rename, and reprint. Truly a naming crisis!
