Naming is Everything with Company Names and Brand Names

A new study has discovered... surprise, surprise... that your brand name and company name are vital when it comes to "obtaining acceptance and avoiding failure" in the marketplace.

This, of course, is not news to us at Strategic Name Development, but it is interesting to see just how much a company name matters when it comes to buying cars.

That importance carries over to pretty much anything else.

Strategic Name Development has been tracking company name changes for some time now and are acutely aware of the critical importance customers and employees place in a name.

Naming, after all, is our business, and we know it's important... it's just nice to see that others share our perspective.
