Agreed and sadly most startup ventures these days are only looking to add value (money) to their own pockets without solving any actual problems or providing value to the customers. Time won't be pleasant to those ventures. If you snub your customers, your venture will die (or at the very least limp on needlessly).
Sandy Archer at Sandy Archer Creative
Well said Jef, so much temptation these days to just get it out there without the real thought of who they are and what they want to offer themselves... it is all about providing value

How do you come up with an original business name that is catchy, yet not outlandish?

It's hard finding a name that isn't taken already. read more

I disagree somewhat with the simplicity approach. You must start with the company values before picking a name.Picking a simple name may not align or give flexibility to grow. Also most simple top level domain names are taken and are very costly to purchase. This can be problematic if you don't have significant funding.Names should be unique and memorable. Look at using parts of multiple words.For example a company we founded is called Ampersanity. It plays off the word 'ampersand' and 'sanity'. Ampersand came from "and per se and" when the & was the 27 letter of the alphabet after Z. So Ampersanity literally translates to And Sanity by itself. It matches our value slogan, "Chaos Creatively Managed".The point is that a back story and alignment to company values can be a stronger play than simplicity.
Hi Yee, Most of the names we have created have come after a few wines! I don't know if there is a strict formula at all. I did read an article recently -the 2015 Marketing Trends report by Landor a global leader in brand consulting. They predict that Names will be going super simple... "With more noise in the digital market place and less time than eves to capture the consumers' attention, brands will continue to streamline the path to sales.That includes a shift back to basic, clear, relevant naming solutions. There will be universal, easy-to grasp concepts that consumers can instantly connect to (think Uber and Square) and that brands can fully own in meaning and URL."I hope this helps. If you need good quality wine... I can recommend something there too :)

Is there any related topic you would like to know more about to help you with your personal branding?
Ling LeeDirector at Japanese Sword Auctions Australia
Thanks for the awesome article Karoline! I totally agree with you...the folks at my local post office are honestly some of the nicest, sweetest people I've met, and I truly enjoy just dropping by to say hi whenever I pass it by. They are extremely crucial to my business (which involves alot of sending paracels etc) and I hope I can achieve this level of personal branding with my business.
