The Big Four Steps To Finding That Perfect Unused Cleaning Business Name

Plan Things First. Properly. 

  • What are your company’s goals?
  • What’s your permission in the market? 
  • What makes you unique?
  • And where do you want to be in five years? 
  • Are you mom and pop, for example, technologically advanced? 
  • Are you all about that personal touch?

It all goes in the plan!

Once your plan is established, it’s time to ideate. This can be a team exercize – write down keywords (really, throw everything at the wall!) and choose those that best fit with the character of your new business. 

  • Build on a Coherent Tone

From your plan and keywords, you can begin to build a brand tone. What feelings are associated with this new business? With this brand? Emotion is key to brand loyalty, so it’s important to nail this!

A few options to get you started:

  1. Wholesome
  2. Fun and Playful
  3. Practical or pragmatic
  4. Amiable and inviting

This tone will determine your brand’s personality, and crucially it has to fit with both the service you offer and your name. It will shape how users see your company, as well as who your company attracts. So, fun and playful might work for getting a younger crowd – say first-time homeowners who want to take pride in their new place – while practical and pragmatic is likely to appeal to businesses. 

Who is your intended audience? Know that, and your tone will come to you!

Planning your Unique Cleaning Business Name

Brainstorm Your Brand Name  

At this point, you should have a ‘feel’ for the business. You’ll also have a list of keywords to work from. 

Work with your team to come up with as many names as you can, and narrow things down from there.

Yes, some will be bad! But take the time to think about where they came from and any kernel of quality they contain. You’ll often find that ideas are incomplete rather than bad. And slowly, you’ll get closer and closer to the name your company needs. 

Finally, Test and Trademark Your Brand New Name 

You should know who your potential customers are at this point. Gather some together (or create an online poll) and test out a few of the potential cleaning business names. You may not get a definitive YES, but you’ll certainly weed out anything problematic. 

From there, you’ll have a really narrow list. Try using each name in conversation with the team for a while – use some gut feeling! And once you’ve landed on the one, be sure to trademark it so no other business can use it.
