Hello, My Name Is Awesome: How to Create Brand Names That Stick (MP3 CD)
Every year, 6 million companies and more than 100,000 products are launched, but too many have names that look like the results of a drunken Scrabble game--Xobni, Svbtle, and Doostang, anyone? Ace naming consultant Alexandra Watkins explains how anyone--even noncreative types--can create memorable and buzz-worthy brand names. This second edition has double the number of brainstorming tools and techniques, even more secrets and strategies to nab an available domain name, a brand-new chapter on how companies are using creative names around the office to add personality to everything from cafeterias to conference rooms, and much more But the heart of the audiobook remains Watkins's proven SMILE and SCRATCH Test--two acronyms for what makes or breaks a name. And you'll see dozens of examples--the good, the bad, and the "so bad she gave them an award." Alexandra Watkins is not afraid to name names.
