If you are starting a new business, you need to choose a name for it. Producers often find that naming their value-added business is an exciting exercise. The business name encompasses all of the effort that has been put into the project. So it is an important step.
The most important thing in naming your business is to keep it simple. The name should be easy to remember. We all know of businesses where no one can quite remember its name while other business names roll off the tongue. The name should also convey an idea or image of what the business is about. This can be important when introducing your business to your clients and the public in general.
