#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Share”, “Reach”, “Talk” and “Click”, you can see that while these words can be related to social media, they also suggest that you can expect to reach certain people, connect with them and being social. Your goal in this step is to create a list of words or names that come to your mind when thinking about your business or service.

#2) Shortlist your ideas

Once you’ve developed a list of possible names, do an analysis of your ideas. Remove any names that could be hard to remember, spell or speak aloud. Keep names that are brandable, sound great, are memorable and communicate your brand values, product or service to your target audience.

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?

My Shortlist:

Crowdly

Viraly

SnapTalk

#3) Get some feedback

You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great social media 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?
  • Is it catchy?

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:

Crowdly

This name conveys a service that will put the clients and their businesses in front of targeted audience/right crowd.

Viraly

This name conveys a service that will create viral content and communicate the right message in front of thousands of people.

SnapTalk

This name conveys a service that connects random people for a limited time creating the bond and connection.

WeShare

This name conveys a service that has a focus of sharing the content and putting it in front of the right audience.

#4) Check It’s available

At this point, it’s good to have at least three great social media 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

Competitor Name Analysis

To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful social media businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.

Facebook Logo

Facebook is the biggest and most popular social media business known today. The business started with the goal of creating a community among Harvard students. The initial name was Friendster, but it was renamed to Facebook since the profiles were called Facebooks. The name communicates a strong personal connection since users create their own profiles, connect with other people and share their opinions – just like writing their own book. The name is also very sound, easy to remember and brandable.

Snapchat Logo

SnapChat is the platform where strangers can communicate through sharing the photos that disappear in a few seconds. The name literally communicates that the communication isn’t deep, but rather short and fun. Also, the name is very sound, easy to remember and brandable.

Instagram Logo

Instagram is social media derived from two words ‘Insta’ which refers to the instant camera and ‘gram’ which refers to the telegram. The social media focuses on sharing photos and connecting with like-minded people and communities. The name is easy to pronounce, sound, hard to forget and very brandable.

5 Tips for naming your social 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 social media terms like ‘picture’, ‘like’ or ‘click’. A more effective business name should convey to customers of your business and value your service provides. Try name your business in a way that has a story behind it.

Let’s take for example a real social media business named “LinkedIn”.

Literally, this name conveys you’re going to connect with like-minded people and social media is all about making meaningful connections. The name doesn’t consist the most used terms in social media and it’s very brandable and easy to remember.

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 (LinkedIn)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (FaceBook – Face as a literal face of the person communicates that people build their own presence or present themselves as they like)
  • 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 social media business names could be:

  • Ezio Media
  • Telvius Media
  • Magnus Media

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, Terry names his business SnapTalk and finds out the name is already taken. Because he’s already decided that’s the name he wants to use for his business he tries to opt for similar sounding names like SnappTalk, SnapTalking or SnaapTalk.

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.
