Running a sports coaching business can be fun, rewarding and a great way to build a long-term career for yourself. However, there are often so many businesses operating in the sector that it can be difficult to stand out from the crowd. That’s where having an eye-catching name can make a big difference.
If you’re not sure what to call your new business venture, then this guide to sports coaching business names will give you plenty of food for thought.
The possibilities for naming your sports coaching business are virtually endless, so it can be difficult to know where to start. These four tips will help put you on the right track, and give you the best chance of coming up with a name that works:
There will already be a number of businesses doing similar things to you, so it’s a good idea to start by looking at the names they’ve chosen. Not only can this give you some inspiration in terms of themes that they’ve explored, but it can also help you make sure you don’t pick something too similar to theirs. The last thing you want is to lose business because your operation is confused with someone else’s.
Some of the best names are the simplest: that is to say that they clearly and concisely explain what the business offers. For example, if a business is called ‘The Crossfit Clinic’, you’ve got a very good idea of what they do straight away. You can do the same for your business by using your area of expertise as the main theme, and then playing with other words around it to come up with a short but highly descriptive name.
A name that sounds great to you is pointless if it doesn’t resonate with the public. This especially applies if you go for a name that’s funny, as humour is subjective and not everyone might be as impressed! Whichever names you’re considering, it’s vital to get a sense-check from your family and friends, see which ones they prefer, and take into account as many views as possible when making your decision.
Of course, if you’re really stuck, then there is the emergency option of leaving things to chance and using an online random business name generator. Some of the suggestions they will come up with may be completely nonsensical or inappropriate, but even if they don’t give you the perfect name, they may well give you some inspiration and help generate some new ideas of your own.
