Tips for choosing the name of a barbershop
Choosing the name of a barbershop is a very important aspect of the business. It is the first element to attract the attention of customers, so don't just choose the first that comes to mind. Keep these tips in mind to ensure the best choice for you and your establishment:
- Strategy: the name must be linked to the idea of a barbershop, enhancing its personality.
- Boldness: a name that is easy to pronounce and easily identifiable, something that is catchy.
- Original: attract the attention of customers with a different name than the competition. You need it to stand out above the rest.
- Visual power: linking the name with a logo serves to attract the vision of potential clients.
- Emotion: the name of your barbershop will be more precious the more emotions it can transmit: feeling very handsome or belonging to an ‘exclusive’ club.
- History: the ability of the name of a barbershop to convey a story that engages the public. You might want to look into the history of the building or the area and choose something appropriate.
- Business sense: a name without commercial strength is doomed to failure. Just listening to it should serve to attract customers and sell your service.
- Proper name: the language, location, culture and purchasing power of the target audience should be considered when choosing the name of the barbershop.
- Internet: having a web domain and online presence, in addition to good management of social media accounts, will serve to attract more public.
- Registration: check with the Registration Office in your country if the name of your barbershop can be registered and the options to convert it into a registered trademark.
