    Hi guys,
    What do you think would be a best type of name for Internet Maketing Company? Should it be serious or funny? Should it include the word "marketing" or "media"? Any ideas?

    I think it should fit your style. I'm getting ready to start a web design/seo business and since I'm more of a silly individual the business will definitely reflect that.

    It should be something that stands out but still easy for people to remember. Ands its important that the name is easy to spell. Its also good if the name is in some way describing.

    So it can could be something like Orange Media, Orange Marketing. And then your logo could be an orange. Something thats stands out, gives you a profile.
    Or maybe a number like "21 Media".

    If you're going for short and memorable, pick an animal and use alliteration. Media Mongoose, Marketing Mouse, Mosquito Media, Musk-Ox Marketing, Mustang Media, Media Mako, Marmoset Marketing, Monarch Media, Marketing Mule, Mountain Goat Marketing or my personal favorite, Manta Ray Media.

    The animal also gives you some really easy logo ideas.

    Edit: This post brought to you by the letter M

    it depends on your personality, but if business is to be professional, it shouldn't be funny. it can, however, be witty or clever.

    it should be 'The Internet Marketing Agency', this name gives you authority from the start even w/o people knowing what you exactly offer

    just in case if it's not taken already of course :)

    Why not choose a name like: Google, FaceBook, Bing, Yahoo, Blippity, MySpace, HootSuite, SEMRush, ScrapeBox, SocialOomph, Fiverr, Social Monkee, SpinChimp, Meta Fever, SERPIQ and on and on...

    In other words, just be creative and don't limit yourself. You also should think about long term branding and trademarking possibilities when making your decision.

    What do you want to rank for in the SERPS?
    If you're going to be an Internet Marketing Agency
    shouldn't you at least rank for something to prove your ability?

    I'd suggest something quite sober to begin with, you can always rebrand once you have a decent client base. You are probably going to have to do ALOT of cold calling/networking to get your first few clients and the last thing you need to get your pitch off the ground is having to call up strangers and say "Hi this is Bill from cunty chops chuckle media"

    That's not necessary. My main services are around social media marketing (mainly Facebook).

    use at least one power/descriptive word in the name.

    -marketing
    -evolution
    -media
    -content
    -strategy
    -group
    -collective

    you get the point
