Choosing the right name, URL, and social media/forum handles is a crucial step in building a thriving company. Luckily, there are several tools online that can help you find the perfect name for your company. Robb Misso, CEO of Dynamic Manufacturing Solutions and an expert in building a successful business, will spotlight five excellent business naming tools for business owners and startup founders:
A website dedicated to helping you find the best URL available for your company, Domainr searches domains across the internet and shows you what is available and what is not. It has built-in brainstorming, real-time availability of domains, and an instant search and suggestion feature. Whether your startup is a traditional brick-and-mortar company or an online company, having a unique URL is very important and Domainr is one of the best sites available to help you with your online address.
This is another website that is excellent for coming up with a domain and you can also use it to create the actual name for your business as well. Namestation’s main feature is its ability to condense keywords into usable, niche domains. It also has a ‘Name Contest’ feature where you can hold a contest to enlist help from people who have ideas for your business based on your company’s description.
As the website says, “Wordoids are made-up words. They look nice and feel great.” With highly customizable options on wordiod.com, you are able to pick the language (5 languages available), the quality, the pattern and the length of the word you’d like to create. The name of your business doesn’t have to be a real word, after all. Many popular businesses these days have words that don’t necessarily have meaning and yet are meaningful and memorable. If you decide to go for a creative approach to naming your company, wordoid.com may be the perfect place for you to go.
Taking the arena of startup management by storm, shopify.com is a great website built to help new companies with all of their ecommerce needs. It has a great tool that is helpful to entrepreneurs in search of a name for their business yet are unsure of where to start. Shopify.com’s business name generator guarantees that they will help come up with a unique name that will stick in your customers’ minds. It also has categories of different businesses (in example- clothing store, flower shop, etc.) that will help narrow down your pathway to finding the perfect name.
Another great site for coming up with business and domain names, panabee.com offers simple solutions to names you might already be thinking of which are taken. It may suggest that you drop the first letter, or swap a “q” for a “k”. This website also lets you know if the domain name is available or if there are similar ones which you can choose.
Naming your business is one of the most important aspects to creating an image for your company. In a way, it is the very first bit of marketing you do for your business and it is how people identify you. Having the right name will have a tremendous influence on your business and using the tools mentioned above will help you in this process immensely.
