Car Wash Package Names

Posted by ble on 250 Points
We are opening a new automatic car wash in our small South Dakota town. We will offer three wash packages and are looking for ways to identify each tier. Is it better to use the usual Gold, Silver, Bronze type names or go with something more unique and catchy. Betsy, Thrifty, Nifty? Any advice? Suggestions?

    Names that clearly articulate the levels are better. Create lists of 3 names and see if your target audience can tell which name is which level.

    I'd use the level-names already familiar to your consumers -- like "bronze/silver/gold."

    "Betsy/Thrifty/Nifty" (and names like that) will be more confusing than helpful ... and will require more communication to get people to understand.

    Names like "Betsy/Thrifty/Nifty" will confuse people.

    Confused people don't make good decisions.

    Stick with tried and true.

    Best would be go with what's clear - Platinum, Gold, Silver.

    Still, since it's about cars, option could be - Rolls, Benz, Caddy. Then again, you're in South Dakota, so maybe not.

    Thank question has been clearly answered! And the answer about us being South Dakota prompted a thought process...we would have Togo with Chevy/Ford/Dodge here...and we might end up with brawling over disagreements over which are top/middle/bottom tier! 🤣 thank you again for your thoughtful and helpful answers.
