As my follower count in the social media universe rises by the ‘000’s, I am wondering what that does in terms of expanding the number of buyers for the products I have on tap – i.e. my books.

Your business name is how you are remembered. Whether it is catchy, or a unforgetable logo. You have to start with an idea. Many people will have a business name and logo from the very start.

It maybe sitting on the computer pondering, googling and finding all your names you could consider. Or it could be one name that you decided on, and keep coming back too.
