Naming a business? Need business name ideas? The process to Choose a business name can be stressful with all the business names available. In this video, I’m sharing step-by-step advice on how to choose a name for your business.

What if my name is taken?

If someone is using your name in what capacity are they using it? Are they just securing the website and they don’t have any of the social handles or do they have all of the social handles and not the website? I would prefer to have all the social handles and not the URL domain name for the website because you can make anything with the URL.

Use a variation of the name

I used a variation of brand like a boss, when I wrote my book “Brand Like A Boss” because somebody has the URL brand like a boss, but they didn’t have the acronym BLAB. And another thing that I really liked about this is it that it meant blab? Since the whole book is about branding and creating a brand for your business, I thought it would be a little creative to say blab, so that people can Blab about your business. Blab see you get it? You get it? Is it ringing? 🙂

Use business name generators to come up with ideas

You want to come up with a variation. So how do you come up with a variation? Well, I would go to Google and search “business name generator” and I wouldn’t just search name generator because you’ll get like baby names and stuff. 

I would use a business name generator or free business name generator and it will pop up a list of ideas. 

You can use a tool called Lean Domain Search for available domains or Shopify’s Business Name Generator to help come up with ideas!

How Do Business Name Generators Work

With one of these tools you literally will just put in the name and it’ll generate a list of ideas to go with your name.

For instance, if you put in Brandi it might say brandi business, Brandi Brand, Brandi store, Brandi shop,  Brandi online, Brandi pink, Brandi blue.  Or, if I search for “bloggin” it might say Bloggin trees, Bloggin book, Bloggin coffee etc….
