  • Tips and tools that will help you finalize your e-commerce brand name

Beginning your entrepreneurial journey and decided the product you are going to sell. The business plan is also in place and everything looks well aligned and happening at a good pace. That’s until you sit down for the first brainstorming session of brand name ideas for your upcoming business.
The whole process of name selection is not easy. Oftentimes one comes up with names that are already being used by someone. Very soon the name selection process becomes exhausting and frustrating and even after spending enough time on the name selection process you are not able to zero down on one single name for your project.
There comes a point when you start feeling that you have lost the mental capability to decide a good and engaging brand name and you turn to online forums and support groups for help. Alas! This exercise leaves you even more frustrated and you are still undecided on the e-commerce brand name for your venture.
Having heard this story over and over again we decided to do a research and come up with some tips and tools that can help you decide a catchy, profitable, SEO friendly name for your upcoming business. Let us have a look together at these:
Be clear on what makes a good name

To build a memorable brand you should choose a catchy name that is well aligned with the product or service you are offering. The catchiness and brevity is the essence of a good brand name. Tap in the effect and power of sounds and symbols. Some sounds are known to produce positive effect and have better chances of success. If you are unable to find a name directly related to the product go for a name that is associated with the emotion your product evokes. If you are unable to finalize a name even after this use the dictionary to your advantage and go for synonyms of the word to generate brand name ideas.

Prepare a list of Names
It is always easy to finalize a name if you have a list of names to choose from. Choose a name that makes your audience feel empowered, privileged or makes them think in a new way. Think out of the box and use words of another language along with English to create a unique name. The permutations and combinations will certainly give you a list of good names that connect with your brand and make it easy for you to register a domain name.

I like that you suggested having a list of names that you will choose from to find something that would target your audience and make them feel empowered, privileged, and new. I can imagine how helpful this strategy would be to come up with something that will be catchy. Also, having a new product naming research agency to help you out when you already feel something about a certain term would give you an idea if it is still available for you to use.

The bad part about these generators are that they won't suggest names that might be helpful when it comes to create a brand locally.
