Select a Name and Domain

Now, it’s time to make your clothing business a reality by giving it a name. While you don’t necessarily have to keep this name forever, it can be extremely costly to re-brand. So definitely use these tips when you’re thinking about what you’re going to name your online store.

1. Originality.

You want to stand out from the crowd, so make sure you choose an original name. Go back and visit your ideal customer. What do they care about? Can you tie that into your brand name? Tap into the emotional and aspirational aspect of your ecommerce business to help you come up with a unique name.

2. Personality.

In addition to being original, you want your brand to have some personality. Infuse yourself and who you are in the name. For instance, if you’re selling t-shirts with funny saying on them, come up with a brand name that will make people laugh! This will help you with the next tip.

3. Memorable.

Once you’ve put together some ideas that are unique and personable, the next tip is to make sure people will remember it. Of course, you don’t want to be remembered for the wrong reasons. So this is another opportunity to reach out to your network and get feedback on your ways. That way, if there’s something you didn’t account for, such as how your name might translate to an audience in another country, you can change it now before you’ve made any investments.

4. Availability.

Even if you’ve come up with the perfect, most awesome name for your store, you can’t do anything with it if it’s not available. Check for trademarks, domain name availability, existing social media handles, and more to ensure you can proceed with your business name.
