Is Easyclick A Good Brand Name?
Posted by Anonymous on

I'm setting up a new business. It's primary products will be online legal docs (both personal and business), legal books, and possibly business videos and training courses. A little like nolo.com.
I am thinking of using EasyClick as a base name - so I can have easyclickdocs, easyclicklegal, easyclickbusiness, easyclickwills, etc if I wanted. I know the word "click" is a limiting - it works well for the online stuff but not so much for offline. Is it too limiting if I want to branch out? Am I better off with a single word brand, one that I can make my own and trademark? Like Nolo, Enodare, etc.
I would be grateful for your views.

I'm not a fan of nonsense names, but they are probably better than names that limit you in communicating your positioning. Why not identify the unique benefit your primary target audience will get, and name your business to communicate that benefit.
"EasyClick" isn't a benefit unless people think clicking is a big problem ... and even then it's more like a feature than a benefit.
I'd urge that you spend some time/attention working on a real and unique benefit-oriented positioning, and let the name flow from that positioning.

I second Michael's (mgoodman) thoughts. EasyClick conveys that something is easy, but what specifically is easy isn't obvious. EasyLegal, for example, is better, but doesn't convey why someone would uniquely choose your offerings.

Go for it. Your business is obviously not enterprise scale so name linking directly to your services makes great deal savings on marketing.
but Easyclick seems still quite virgin territory.
Of course you're aware there's a lot big name competition on your vertical.

I did a quick search and found a few Easy Click sites but not too many. I can understand the rationale for the name, it implies ease of use, simplicity, no hassle etc, especially for the kind of business that you're in (I can imagine people thinking of thick stacks of paper, limitless documentation etc. :) )...don't see any harm in the naming convention you suggested above as long as you know who your target audience is and is able to reach them.
Best of luck.

I am closing this question since there hasn't been much recent activity.
Thanks for participating!
