    I want to incorporate my internet marketing business and I need a name.

    Anyone have any ideas? What name did you use?

    That should be the least of your concerns. What I did is let my girlfriend come up with one. It took her literally 5 seconds to do so.

    someone had a similar post to this earlier and ill give you the same advice... find a good domain name first... then use it for your business...

    chances are your cool new business domain will already be taken...

    i always use
    Code:
    www.whois.sc
    to locate my domains... and then type in google cheap domains... godaddy always has a sponsored link for discounted domains at the top serps... :)

    Not to bust your chops, but, concentrate your time and efforts on making money. The name of your company doesn't mean jack. Coca Cola would still make mega millions even if it was called Crazy Loca or whatever.

    I would suggest creating a name that is 100% fictional (no dictionary words). It's much easier to find a domain name and trademark it, etc.

    I can't agree that inventing a good name isn't that important. Of course first of all your business should be your primary focus, but having a nice name can sometimes help. Spend some time thinking on something with nice sound to it and evoking positive connotations. It's usually a good idea to ask your friends for an oppinion. Try to avoid popular names and words as it will make your name less distinguishable and harder to notice among many others.

    You have to see first what your goal is ? Are you going to do BH or WH marketing ? Who are your clients ? Start to act and think as a client. How will he gonna find/search your compagnie ?
