How To Make A Perfect Business Name?

A perfect name for your business matters a lot. When it comes to starting a dropshipping business, making a perfect name for your dropshipping store is a crucial first step to building a memorable and profitable brand. The name will definitely become your business’s identity and will appear everywhere on your website, logo design, business cards, advertisements, products or services, and many other materials. It should be such that it distinguishes your dropshipping business identity from your competitors and can be remembered by customers easily. The article will introduce ways to come up with the business names, tips for making the business names as well as tools to generate the business names.

Ways To Come Up With Business Names

1. Brainstorm

Brainstorming is a creative process that needs to think outside the box and can be done independently or with others. There are no bad ideas.

You can brainstorm by yourself. Research what already exists, such as check out your competitors, browse for markets like Exchange, and list your favorite business names, to see if they inspire any ideas of your own.

You can also organize a fun brainstorming session and invite your friends, family, or employees to take part in and contribute ideas. Start by using some words that define your industry and products or services you deliver. Once you have a lot of ideas, you need to go back and sort them out to find the best. When you list your thoughts, consider using a word bank to organize them or categorize them by topic, that also helps to generate new ideas after brainstorming.

And there are four best brainstorming tools for 2019, includes CoggleMindmeisterLucidChart, and Scapple.

2. Experiment

Combine your various words with partial words. Don’t be judgmental. Just write various combinations down on paper. And review the lists to see if there is a combination that gives you a good impression when you see and hear it. Or you can share the lists with someone you trust to ask for their opinions and how they feel about them.

It also a good idea to try using the first letter of every word in a phrase or parts of words or names. For example, AOL (America Online), BENQ (Bringing Enjoyment and Quality to life), and BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation).

And take a symbol or an essential element of your work and try a new name starting from that word, just like Pixar, a combination of the word pixel and the initials of one of its founders, Alvy Ray Smith.

In addition, mix two or more words that are meaningful for you and your business. For example, Compaq (from “computer”  and “pack”), Groupon (from “group” and “coupon”), and Evernote (from “forever” and “note”).

3. Use mythology, literature, map or dictionary

It is a good idea to get inspiration from mythology, literature and map. Some famous brand names are about Greek and Roman legends, such as ASUS (from the mythical winged horse Pegasus) and Nike (the goddess of Victory). Furthermore, a character, place or object can also be a good start for a name, such as Samsonite (from the Bible character Samson), Starbucks (from Starbuck, the young chief mate of the Pequod, in Moby Dick).

You can also find out the Greek and Latin translations of your words. Figure out colors, gems, plants, or animals associated with your language to find unique yet appropriate associations and words that can be incorporated into names.

What’s more, use a world map to get inspired, such as Amazon (named after the largest river in the world, by volume of water), Adobe (after the Adobe Creek, running close to the founder’s house), and Fuji (named after the highest mountain in Japan).

Lastly, you could do as Blizzard and Twitter did and just pick a random word from a dictionary.

Tips For Making Business Name

1. Pick aeasy name

Use the words that are simple and short and are easy to pronounce and write so that everyone can remember your business names, such as Apple, Southwest, and Virgin. An easy name also makes word-of-mouth communication easier because people can quickly remember and can tell it to others.

2. Available aadomain

You need to make sure that an appropriate domain name is available, ideally, YourCompanyName.com. Customers tend to associate a .com name with a more established business. It is necessary that your URL and business name match to fill your customers with confidence in case that your customers think of spams and web security. And you can check on the availability of a domain name on sites such as GoDaddy.com or NetworkSolutions.com.

3. Test your name

After you have picked a business name, you should test your name to find out if it is a perfect name by knowing people’s reaction. Share the selected name with your family members, trusted friends, even with your potential customers to see if they give good feedback. If the reaction is positive, then go ahead with the choice of the word or word phrase.

You can also test the name on Google AdWords which will list similar phrases along with the global and local monthly searches made for that keyword so that you can ensure that your company name is not already used on the web by others.

4. Avoid literal names

Avoid having a literal name for your business even if it lets consumers instantly know what you produce. You may have a business change later. A good idea is to opt for the word that a little abstract in the sense that it does not spell out your products or services. In other words, use a word that only gives the consumers a hint of what your company does.

5. Avoid geographic names

Avoid the situation that your business name consists of some geographic names unless that you are trying to establish a strong local affinity with a location, such as a neighborhood bar. Your business name should have a universal appeal for your business will grow in the future and cross the geographical boundary.

Tools TGenerate Business Names

However, if you don’t have any ideas, or if you’ve hit a creative block, tools to generate business name are great to use to get inspiration for your own ideas and build off of what the generators present to you.

There is a list of business name generator tools:

1. Shopify’s business name generator

2. Namelix

3. Wordoid

4. Dot-o-mator

5. NameStation

6. Domain Hole

7. Oberlo’s business name generator

8. Bustaname

9. Domainr

10. Impossibility!

What should dropshippers do?
What are the best Oberlo alternatives?
1. DSers
2. CJ Dropshipping
3. NicheDropshipping
4. Spocket
5. Printify
Today we got breaking news for dropshippers. Oberlo, one of the most well-known apps on Shopify will officially close its entry on June 15th, 2022.

Oberlo has been a successful dropshipping app. It provides a convenient method for store owners to fulfill orders with AliExpress.

Among all the various dropshipping apps on the market, Orberlo has got a great reputation in the community. It has helped countless people become successful entrepreneurs.

However, the sites will officially shut down on June 15th. For the people who are currently on a paid Oberlo subscription plan, they can cancel it now and get a refund.

What should dropshippers do?
There are many possibilities for Oberlo to make such a decision. And shutting down the Oberlo app doesn’t mean the Oberlo company is going to shut down.

We will talk about this topic in our latest articles and share some insights about the dropshipping industry in the short future.

For now, Oberlo will shut down soon. If you are one of the entrepreneurs who have been using Oberlo, you need to think about what to do next and find a solution for the incoming event as soon as possible.

In this article, we will present some best dropshipping sites as alternatives for Oberlo. If you wish to take this challenge as an opportunity with a new service provider, this is the chance.

If you are not using Oberlo, the event may also lead you to some deep thoughts about the industry. In case your current supplier or service provider got the same situation in the future, preparing in advance is always a good choice.

What are the best Oberlo alternatives?
1. DSers
On the official Oberlo FAQ page, Oberlo has suggested the users migrate to a trusted Shopify partner, DSers.

DSers is a dropshipping app that provides multistore management. You can use it to manage most dropshipping platforms such as Shopify, Wix, and Woocommerce.

Just like Oberlo, DSers allows you to sync orders from your store to AliExpress and then fulfill the orders in a more convenient way.

Also, you can use DSers to source the products on AliExpress. Instead of sourcing products on your own, using DSers will save you a lot of time to locate the specific product you want among the massive category.

In addition, DSers is also available for data transferring from Oberlo. If you wish to migrate your Oberlo account data to DSers, you can do it directly on the Oberlo admin home page.

What makes DSers unique?
Good Chrome extension
Multiple store order manage
Optimizing sourcing time
Allow data migration from Oberlo
Good chrome extension
Still, DSers is not the best choice if you wish to save your budget and justify the cost. This is because if you want to fully use the functions of DSers to manage more than 3 stores, you will need to subscribe to the paid plan first.

2. CJ Dropshipping
CJ Dropshipping is a one-stop dropshipping platform that provides a complete Dropshipping service.

The service of CJ dropshipping covers sourcing, shipping, order management and even filming ad videos.

CJ Dropshipping has both features of Oberlo and AliExpress, you can find products that come from various international suppliers at cheap prices on the site. By using this sourcing feature, you can easily find better suppliers different from AliExpress.

If you need some information about the recent trendy products or best-selling products, you can also explore the trendy products recommendation columns on the CJ Dropshipping site. Every season there will be brand new innovative products for you to choose from.

Besides, the overall shipping time of CJ Dropshipping is faster than AliExpress suppliers. This is because many suppliers on CJ Dropshipping got their own international warehouses.

Also, if your business volume is big, you can actually have your own private inventory in CJ warehouses. Then your orders can be shipped out within 1 to 2 days.

If you are not only looking for a store integration service provider but also suppliers with better prices, CJ Dropshipping will be a good choice for you. Unlike other paid-to-use platforms, most functions on CJ Dropshipping are completely free to use.

What makes CJ Dropshipping unique?
Free sourcing for better suppliers
Trendy products recommendation
Faster shipping time than AliExpress
International warehouses
Bulk order management
Various extended services (POD, Photography)
3. NicheDropshipping
Niche dropshipping is a site that combines sourcing agents and dropshipping suppliers. You can find various product collections on their site just like searching for products on AliExpress.

When you want to search for any products with better quality or price, you can directly consult the agents of NicheDropshipping to find the product you want.

If some products got higher prices than you expected, you can also negotiate with the agents. Agents of Niche dropship are also professional in getting the best quotation from the suppliers.

Besides, Niche Dropshipping got international warehouses in both China and the USA. So if your market is in the US and you wish to optimize the processing time of the products, you can also choose to bulk purchase the products to stock in their USA warehouse. Once products are stocked in the USA, shipping and processing time can be amazingly fast.

In addition, the photography service is available if you wish to see the actual quality of the products. You can also request photos or videos for advertisement usage. But keep in mind this service is paid, the cost will depend on your request content.

What makes NicheDropshipping unique?
Free product sourcing quote
China & USA warehouses
Automated dropshipping service
Photography service
4. Spocket
Spocket is a high-rated dropshipping platform that allows you to connect with suppliers all over the world.

Most of the suppliers on Spocket are from the USA & the EU. This special feature makes it an excellent tool to search for products within the US and the EU.

The best thing about domestic suppliers is the shipping time. If you buy products from domestic suppliers, shipping will only need takes 2-5 days to deliver. This is why international warehouses are also recommended by other dropshipping platforms

Still, the limitation of domestic suppliers is the product variety. If your wish to expand your business, you will need to explore more international supplier platforms.

If your target market is in the US or in the EU, Spocket is a great choice for you to find the supplier you prefer to work with.

What makes Spocket unique?
Available US & EU suppliers
High-quality products with samples
Winning products recommendation
Support multiple platforms (Shopify, Woocommerce, Wix)
5. Printify
POD (Print on demand) is a special major category among all different kinds of products. When we talk about POD products, Printify must be the top to mention. It is also a dropshipping site that specialized in integrating POD suppliers.

On Printify, you can source a wide range of customizable products including hoodies, accessories, T-shirts, and so on.

Wish to see the effect picture? You can simply upload the picture to the platform then the editor will automatically generate an example picture.

Still, not all the products are customizable and some products are only customizable if you have a large order quantity. Many suppliers require MOQ (minimum order quantity) to provide customization services. And of course, it’s not free.

So if you are running a general store with various product categories, Printify may not be the best option.

If you are looking for customizable products or wish to brand your products with store logos, you check out Printify to make your own products.

What makes Printify unique?
Specialized in POD products
Wide range of customizable products collection
No extra charges except product and POD fee
Simple editor for designers
