Choosing a Name for Your Work From Home Business

By

Choosing a name for a work at home business can be difficult. In fact, choosing a name for any business can be, as once it is chosen, you can’t go back. You want something that sounds right for the type of work you do, isn’t already taken, and is unique. This can take some thinking about, and it isn’t something that can simply be done overnight. If you are starting a work at home business, here is how you can go about choosing a name. 

Standing Out

Work from home businesses are becoming more popular, and this means more than ever you need to choose a name that will make you stand out from the crowd. Perhaps this is going to be something that will make people laugh, or perhaps you just want this to be something simple so that people will understand straight away from your business name what it is that you do. Some people prefer to use their last name and what their business is, while others decide to take the risk and use something quirky. This comes down to your personality and your willingness to attempt a quirkier name. 

You also need to consider the future too, for example, you may want to name your business “Smith’s Wedding Photography” but what if in a few months you broaden that horizon and start doing other events and parties? This would mean changing your business name, so think very carefully about how you may want to expand in the future. 

Ask for Opinions

Once you have chosen a few ideas, ask for opinions. You may be very biased if you came up with the name yourself and it may be that you didn’t notice a flaw in the name. Asking a range of people including friends, family and even strangers means you will get a good idea of whether the name could work or not. If you want the name to be simple and want those who hear it to know exactly what your business is, ask them and see if they can guess. If they can, you’ve hit the nail on the head and can move onto step three. 

Legalities

Once you have chosen a name or two that you like, it is time to check if the business name has already been taken, as well as how you want your business to run. 

There are many forms of businesses out there including sole proprietorship and LLC, so you must first choose what you want your business to run as. You can then use an online search tool to determine if your name has already been used. For example, if you live in Oregon you can use a state-specific business registry search to ensure that your business name is legal to use. 

Choosing a great name is just the start for your work from home business. Once you have chosen the perfect name, you can begin to build everything from your website to your logo.
