    Ya you are right, I forgot there is brand like Lenovo,
    So what is your take on this name...we all like it because of the name and probably because lenevo made us like it...
    But will a company want yenovo when the see lenevo, s
    I don't think so, the might feel like the are hiding under the shadows of lenevo...
    And the masses may see it that way, especially when the company deals on electronics too

    So this another rule to brandable names
    Avoid copy tagging of already know brand
    Lenovo
    Yenovo
    Senovo
    Benovo

    Don't reg this type of name ,
    Look at
    Lenovo
    Tecno
    Samsung
    Hawei
    Itel
    All different and unique but all are still under electronics

    I'm not an expert.
    I'm still learning.
    What do you think about these?

    To add to my "Be Brands" like BetheTiger I just added; BetheRide (can be used to represent all sorts of rides from luxury rides to wild rides) and BethePizza (for a National Pizza chain where the customer makes his/her own pizza). Want to see a real joke? just go to; MakeYourOwnPizza(.)com and see how much they're asking for the domain. After I saw that it made me want to register BetheJoke:ROFL:.com. Instead I just went for BethePizza:xf.smile:

    Fonzie...Apple.com, Amazon.com and even Google.com were all accidents...i'll explain if need be. It's the business behind a brandable name that makes the brand, not the other way around.

    just yesterday I reg'd the domain iCauseChange.com because this industry is sadly in need of change:xf.wink:
    I do have a question oldtimer? between the domains Lovelife.com and Luvlife.com which is the brandable? Can/are they both brandables? I see names like this for sale on BrandBucket and Brandpa all the time. Is the answer "it depends"? in which case, most advise provided is opinion:xf.rolleyes: Anyone have a better more believable explanation?
     
  19. Where there is beauty in the eyes of the beholder, there is also brand interest in the eyes of a new start-up.

    In translation, where one may find LoveLife.com the perfect Generic-Dictionary-Statement-Brand that works perfectly for their keyword targeted campaign online, another may find LuvLife.com the perfect Creative+Word-Statement-Brand that works perfectly for their brick-n-mortar and online campaigns (Both).

    The psychology behind both brand directions is the same and will resonate in it's development and rich content to express it clearly to the consumer.

    Sometimes a new brand can come down to a simple choice of whether or not a start-up wants to go the more unique branding route or the more digestible and translatable generic branding route.

    If you look at established brands running campaign spin-off's or product/service geared generic campaigns that feed their primary brand leads (Online anyways) it usually translates to a generic word or phrase asset, whereas, the more creative spins end up primary umbrella brands down the road in the long run game.

    Ironically, down the road, those creative brands, start investing in generic brands too, to run similar campaigns they witnessed big primary brands using in the past, when they were just starting out.

    So, I suppose, the moral of the story here is that a creative brand, while maintaining the same psychological make-up as a generic brand once fleshed out with a clear message, is that the advantage of authority, sits better with the creative brand than the generic brand, unless it has clear association to the creative brand in the generic message.

    This is just considering the psychology of a brand in the subconscious of the consumer.

    Ask yourself, Does one find more authority In "Nike" or "GoodShoes"? Does one find more instant trust in "DeliciousPizza" or "PizzaHut"?

    Now, ask yourself, if GoodShoes had the Nike umbrella brand backing it and had clear association on GoodShoes.com that Nike owned it, would you trust GoodShoes more than if Nike didn't clearly back it? Same question for DeliciousPizza. If it clearly showed PizzaHut owned/operated/backed it, would you feel safer using your credit card on the site?

    It's nice to see the message of what we desire generically, but does that really translate to authority, evoking enough trust that you use your credit card in their shopping cart, online?

    At the end of the day, one has about 6 seconds once a visitor hits your website to peak their interest and a total of 14 seconds to gain enough trust that they may want to consider buying something from you. The brand itself, may end up being the deciding factor as to whether or not a visitor orders their shoes from GoodShoes or goes back to Nike to buy them.

    The twist here, is that if you have enough capital, you can make any brand authoritative (Generic or creative). For a start-up, this may also be a big deciding factor in their budget.

    At any rate, that's just my opinion. Everyone has a different opinion and you're right, the opinion of what is beautiful and brandable is truly in the eyes of the beholder/start-up them self, coupled with the available capital they have to back their vision and push through with it.

    That's good stuff Eric....especially with the example parallels you pointed out. I just reg'd 5gSix because it just sounded good....catchy? I don't know, but a new NP member just taught me about 5g and maybe 5gSix.com could be 5g headed to to 6g....ever hear of Check Six? or Check-6® Eric? Thanks
     
  22. Did you mean "check your 6" or "I got your 6"?

    If so, yes. It's the clock position that represents ones back or backside, translating to "I got your back".

    Mostly used by military, law enforcement, and organized crime syndicates.

    Yes Eric...that's what I meant. I have a lot of Navy Pilots who live nearby, and several of them went to work for Check-6® when they retired. I just bought 5gArc and 5gMission so 5gSix has company:xf.rolleyes: Check out 5gExchange.com, and let me know what you think? Cheers!

    Good stuff to know artstar. Lately I've discovered I'm more of a brand guy than a domain guy for I generally have a business model/plan behind each domain I create or re-register. After picking up a few 5g domains earlier, I just registered GourmetOlympics™ and ComedyOlympics™ It's interesting that Gourmet Olympics had never been registered, and Comedy Olympics had been registered continually from 2000 to 2016.

    A "gourmet" is defined as a connoisseur of food and drink.so why shouldn't there be a be a Gourmet Olympics? Hell, that could become as popular as the real olympics, if not more so:xf.wink:

    Just a question? Why wouldn't someone like a Ruth Chris or Darden Foods, or a William Sonoma want to sponsor a Gourmet Olympics or someone like SNL sponsor the Comedy Olympics?

    Inquiring minds would like to know. Thanks.
