Need Name for starting a Computer business

By knifeboy426 ·
I am about to open a computer business and I am having trouble deciding on a good name. I want it to be able to accurately describe what I do. I fix computer and do upgrades, remote support,backup and website hosting, but also do digital conversions such as vcr to dvd and cassette to cd. I also repair broken screens on most electronics such as laptops, cameras and ipods. So it is somewhat of a broad category, but I want it to be defined in the business name. Any suggestion or opinion will be great!

If you had a dime for every time we've seen this question, you wouldn't need to open a business.

Don't mess with Nick

He is a master of intellectual-property law.

Back when electric guitars first became of vogue, I was interviewing a new band -- an ensemble of those guitars -- for a review piece, and they were in search of a name.

I suggested, gratis, The Electric Company.

They didn't take me up on it. As I recall, someone else did.

That would have been Children's Television Workshop. For a while they produced a program called 'The Electric Company'. It was a program for kids who had outgrown 'Sesame Street'. No numeric skills; it emphasized reading and language. Sadly, it stopped airing after a couple of years; a minor factor in the overall decline in American literacy.

If you can have it start with an A. You'll be near the top of the list in the phgone book. The poor sap that is near the end of the alphabet never gets chosen as people are too lazy to go that far down the list.

Use a medical term, like "Computer Doctor", but don't use technical terms that only your peers will understand. Think of what will grab a customers eye when they see the name. Something they will know means you do computers.

Good luck!

A series of sci-fi short stories by Robert Sheckley. The partners picked the name for the very reason you mention.

I have names like that in mind

by knifeboy426 In reply to Start with...

Such as:
Computers are us, ComputersRus
Computers and Beyond!!
Clever Computing and Repair. CC&R
Frowns-2-Smiles Tech Shop
Alpha Computer Services (your first stop)

But I am finding it hard to accurately describe everything I offer.
