Competitor Name Analysis
To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful bee businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
The Peaceful Bee Company
This company is a the result of a partnership between a medical team and a boy with autism sensory processing disorder who loves cooking. Together, they came up with a range of cosmetics based on bee products.
Bountiful Blossoms Bee Company
The symbiosis between bees and flowers is well known. This company creates its own artisan bee products and it also grows local flowers for the purpose of bringing down the import of cut flowers.
The company supplies gardeners and bee business owners with an array of bee species. It shows you the diversified range of activities and naming options that bee companies can opt for.
1. Do a Competitor Analysis
Doing a competitor analysis as your first step will save you a lot of time in the future, knowing what names to avoid and understanding why and how your competitors business name words for them will help you in forming your own business names. When analyzing competitors think about:
- What business or product values are they conveying in their business name? How does that work for them?
- Is there a trend in how these businesses are naming themselves? It’s best to avoid sounding like “just another one of those businesses”.
- Who does it best? Why does it work and how can I produce a better name?
2. Focus on Naming your Business not Describing it.
A typical pitfall most businesses run into is describing their business name too literally, using overused honey terms like royal, tasty or sweet. A more effective business name should convey to customers your businesses and product values at a deeper level. Try name your business in a way that has a story behind it.
Let’s take for example a real honey business named “The Beekeepers Daughter”.
Literally, this name conveys you’re buying honey from the daughter of a beekeeper. At a deeper level though, this is a great name that translates the history and values of the product/business: they’re local, family owned and operated, have been working with bees for generations.
3. How to make a more memorable name
Creating a memorable business name is the first step in getting into a customers mind and is also a task that’s easier said than done. Your business name should aim to stop a customer in their tracks and give an extra thought on your product among your wave of competitors. Some tips to create a memorable name would be:
- Use rhythmic pronunciation or alliteration (Busy Bees, Bee Bound)
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Hexa Bees – Hexa as in Hexagon, the usual shape associated with honeycombs)
- Keep it short and simple.
4. Try purchasing a Brandable business name
Brandable business names are names that are non-sensical but read and are pronounced well. They often use letter patterns of Vowel/Consonant/Vowel as these word structures are typically short, catchy and easy to say and remember. For example, some brandable bee business names could be:
- Nuvane Buzz
- Alomos Bees
- Nurilo Honey
You can find a full list of Brandable business names at Domainify.com
5. Avoid combining words just to create a unique name.
Another mistake business owners typically make is creating bad word combinations when they find out that their business name idea is already taken. For example, John names his business Bumble Bees and finds out it’s already taken. Because he’s already decided this is what he’ll name his business he tries to opt for similar sounding names like BumbillBees, Bumblees or BummbleBees.
You can see how these ideas are a step backward as they are not catchy, easily pronounceable or memorable. In these situations, we suggest starting from scratch and trying the tips we mentioned previously.
