Before naming your venture or a product/service, help us understand the core values of the brand and how your brand should resonate with the audience. What industry do you operate and are there any first letter(s) of a brand is important to you? Finally, how do you want to differentiate from the rest, and who will be your competitors and customers? Do you have any preference for a particular Domain Extension or brand attribute such as “dictionary word, single word, acronym etc? If you have answers for the same, search on our Platform keeping in mind those brand characteristics.
Identify a few brand domains on our Platform and shortlist them as your first choice, second choice or third choice as per your budget and other criteria. Usually, every brand domain (on a particular brand extension is unique). For example, if your available domain Shopanything.com is unique but someone registers Shopanything. XYZ, the brand name, is no longer unique. It’s important to secure primary domain extension as unique, further differentiating with Logo/emblem, brand positioning, and Ownmark (or trademark). Click here to check if the same brand is registered as a trademark in your industry/class, business services/goods and in your region. For example, Shopanything is a registered trademark on class 42 dealing in IT Outsourcing/Staffing Services in the North American market, your brand can still be ShopAnything under Class 35, providing web services or commerce shopping. Contact us at ownmark for a detailed Ownmark service tool kit after identifying three to four brand names on our platform.
Each domain comes with a list of brand attributes such as the brand name’s meaning, description of the brand name, and brand root i.e., how the brand name was invented. In addition, other brand characteristics are also provided, such as how the brand name is a right fit for a particular industry vertical or business, and how the brand name is spelt and pronounced with 1 to 3+ syllables. All the domains also come with Brand visual mockups, unique logos, prices, and payment terms. You can complete all the primary research on one page where the brand name is displayed. Additionally, we also offer brand-related stats such as the Brandcart’s assessed market cap, google search results, cost per click (CPC), and Search Volume Forecast.
