#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Build, “Foundations”, “Brick” and “Future”. You can see that while these words can be related to Contractors, they also suggest that you can build a new life and a new future for your family with the work carried out by this business or brand. Your goal here is to create a list of words or names that come to mind when thinking about your business.

Here’s a quick checklist you can run your ideas through to help shorten your list of name:

  • Is the name simple and easy to remember?
  • Is the name easy to read and say aloud?
  • Is the name different from competitors?
  • Does the name convey a relevant meaning?
  • Does the name avoid overused words or cliches?

#3) Get some feedback

You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great contractor business names and you can start to ask potential customers or people working in the industry for feedback (your target audience). Avoid feedback from family and friends, are more likely to praise all your ideas and they aren’t your customer.

Be sure to ask questions like:

  • What first comes to mind when you first hear the name?
  • How would you spell it?

With you’re customer feedback you can now ask yourself is the name still relevant? and did it represent your business how you intended?

My customer feedback:

Building for the Future

This name shows us how this business can help its customers to look forward to a better life. It suggests that they are focussed on doing the right things to ensure success for everyone involved.

We Build Your Dreams

This name conveys that the contractors are ready to do whatever is necessary to make people’s dream come true. They don’t just build houses, because they know that a house means much more than the sum of its parts to the owner.

Contracting with Confidence

This name lets us see that we can trust this contractor to make our life easier, which is a huge concern for a lot of people who are getting ready to build.

Stress-Free Constructions

This name gives the impression of a hassle-free service that lets us concentrate on simply getting the work done in the best possible way.

#4) Check It’s available

At this point, it’s good to have at least three great contractor business names on your list, in case your any of your names are already taken. You can do a quick Business Name Search online to find out if you’re name is available within your country/state, also be sure to search if the name is also available for Trademark and Domain name Registration.

Check Domain Availability

5 Tips for naming your contractor business

The ideal business name should be simple, memorable and convey a meaning all at the same time. Here are my 5 tips to keep in mind when developing your business names.

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 contractor terms like building contractor or contractor services. 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 “Fix This Build That”.

This informal name lets us imagine a friendly handyman who is capable to sorting out any issues around the home. No matter what work you want carried out at home, it looks like this contractor is going to be happy to do it for you.

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 (Contracting Choices, Classy Constructions)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Brick  –  this word lets us picture ahead to when the contractor is placing brick after brick onto the construction).
  • 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 contractor business names could be:

  • Zoom Builders
  • ChaChaContractors
  • BrickaTime

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 Reliable Builders 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 ReliaBuilder, BuilderReliable or ReliableBuildings.

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.
