Starting a New Business
Your Business Name is Your Business
The name of a business is one of its most vital assets.
It's how you answer the phone. It's how people remember you and your products or services. It's what they see in your advertising, your leaflets, your business cards and stationery. It's how your business gets recommended to others. It really is - your business.
Choosing a name for your business is one of the most important decisions you will make.
