    Hi,

    **I am hoping for an answer from left-field to catch my attention**

    This is a "help me name my business, but with an exciting twist" thread, so please read on!!

    I have a business concept I am considering launching. However, I don't want to share the concept for fear of influencing your responses...

    My branding concept is to incorporate the business name into it's own tag line... I have devised the primary component of the tag line, but need the right business name to give it the edge...

    Tag line concept: "For the best experience just add <<business name>>"

    So, as an example I could name the business "Dynamite Services" and the tag line would then read "For the best experience, just add Dynamite"...

    Some thought provoking ideas for consideration:
    What do you add to things to make them exciting/memorable?
    Like, what do you add to a party to make it exciting? or what do you add to cooking to make it just right? or what do you add to your day life to make it exciting?...

    Looking forward to your responses...

    My initial response was "drugs or alcohol", but decided that wasn't being particularly helpful.

    "Passion" also came to mind ... and if that's the best I can do, it may explain why my career has been in construction and not copywriting.

    Look forward to other suggestions.

    Like estim8, I'm no copywriter... (and yes, I like 'passion' as an option)

    Depending on your target market, what about 'bliss' or 'delight'? For another audience, 'action' or 'extremes'. Another type might like 'comfort' - this is really hard with no idea of your product/service or target! ;)

    OK - that's enough for now - I could keep going through the alphabet, but without more of an idea, I'm not sure I'm actually helping!

    Whilst I admire the query, I am not sure without any understanding of product etc etc how on the nose these replies will be... Although, for me, they might include:
    Just add meat!
    Just add cheese!
    Just add enthusiasm!
    Just add friends!
    Just add contacts!
    Just add my PS4!
    Just add air!
    Just add exhilaration!
    Just add passion!
    Just add flyingsolo!
    Just add a netwrork!
    Just add expertise!
    Just add knowledge!
    Just add bookers bourbon!

    Or

    Just remove negativity!
    Just remove boundaries!
    Just remove racism!

    And so forth..

    Cheers
    Jason

    I'm guessing you're trying to do a google thing, as in "let's google that". The difficulty is, it takes time to make to make your brand synonymous with a concept, if it happens at all!

    For my addition, without any other info I'm going with "Just add Pepper"
    Because pepper spices things up!

    Wishing you luck in your search,

    Danni

    Thanks everyone for your input...!

    I understand the difficulty in not knowing the business service to be provided... My intent behind keeping it from you was to make sure I didn't curtail your thinking to industry specific...

    I've decided to go with my original name and tag... "Dynamite *****" as the business name and "For a great event, just add Dynamite" (or similar...)

    Thanks...!
