    Please help me choose a business name by voting below.

    Hello, my name is Daniel, and I am starting a new buisiness selling/designing/installing/repairing LED signs. Here are some examples of the products I will be selling:

    I have narrowed it down to two candidates:

    Compelling Pixels

    and

    Radiant Signs

    I would really appreciate your help and feedback. Please vote by replying with the name you like the most. Thanks!!

    You need a 3rd option in your survey. Neither

    IMO Compelling Pixels sounds more like a good name for a photographer.

    Radiant signs actually says what you do, but not sure if its a catchy name,

    Just my opinion, but if forced to take one it would be Radiant signs.

    But the one thing I always say, is the name has to be you, not what a survey of 50 individuals on a forum think, they have no attachment to it, you are the one that has to say the name 200 times a day. So what I am saying is ignore what I have said anyhow.

    Neither does much for me either.

    Given the choice of what you have presented, I would also go for Radiant Signs.

    Fun and quirky could work in your field eg,

    Could Be A Sign
    Is This A Sign
    Sign 'O The Times

    Choosing a name is often stressful.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for your input. I should have said that if you don't like either option then feel free to come up with a better name (as Paul has done). I am always open to new suggestions.

    Thanks Jaylene for your suggestion. I really liked the name you suggested for the double entendre. Unfortunately that one is already taken.

    Please keep the replies coming, I appreciate the feedback.

    It really depends how you want to be perceived. I like all the quirky ideas with double meaning however given the highly competitive landscape of the signage industry you have to find something professional, and fitting with the customers that you will be servicing. Here are my suggestions.

    AdvanSigns
    Leinad Signs (used your name)
    ViSigns
    SignaLight
    Enhanced Sings
    Lux Signs
    Pro Signs
    Identity Signs

    Hi Daniel

    Go with the first option. I think it works. Its not just a sign youre selling but to compel people to read the sign ...thats what makes it different to other signs.

    If you want a synonym to compelling you might find it here https://www.bing.com/search?q=compelling thesaurus

    If you want to describe your UVP (unique value proposition) further...you can always add a slogan in your marketing material.

    Lastly...catchy names might make people remember you but it might not necessarily sell. But if you focus on helping people know how youre different and help their problem, that might sell.

    Hope that helps

    Regards
    Umar

    When choosing a business name you should be considering more than just a catchy name, depending on your marketing strategy you should consider how a name can help you gain business. In years gone by it was commonplace to have a business starting with an A or AAA or AAA1 to gain first place in the yellow pages. These days it's more important to be found online and the correct business name can help you be found easily. It's extremely important if you intend on relying on your website to gain a large portion of business.

    I suggest you do some research on how using keywords in a business name can help you quickly rank in google before deciding on your name. If you want to know more, inbox me a message.
