Today’s blog is all about how I came up with the name for my business, NineFrogs! I have probably told this story over 100+ times. And since more people have been asking, I thought I’d write a blog about it.
I did quite a bit of research on marketing and the one thing that really stood out for me was how important it was to have a great business name.
At the time, I already had a few names in mind (needless to say, those didn’t work out). It just goes to show you how fate + opportunity meet!
One of the most interesting things I learned was that your business name didn’t have to have anything to do WITH your business (although I’ve read some people disagree). Think: Target, Walmart, Amazon, Google, FaceBook, etc.
I knew a few things about the name, I wanted it to be smart, memorable, and a conversation piece! Oh, and of course, I wanted to love it <3
“WHAT’S IN A NAME? THAT WHICH WE CALL A ROSE BY ANY OTHER NAME WOULD SMELL AS SWEET!”
Think about it, what do you want people to think or FEEL when they either hear your business name OR see it? What is going to be their reaction?
And so how did it come to be NineFrogs?
I found a plastic frog in my bathroom and thought how FROGS are lucky in Feng Shui, and let’s face it, who doesn’t love frogs?
Then I thought about matching colors to it, but those were all taken.
I’ve always been into numerology and how numbers affect our lives. So, I went to numbers…
One Frog, two frogs…NineFrogs! It just had a certain ring to it!
It felt right. It felt, this is IT!
And it was!
And did you know this? I didn’t. Someone sent this to me after I opened shop, and I love it <3
Now you know!
Patricia <3 always
