    Hi folks,

    I'm new on here and just thought I would say "Hello". Hope you are all doing good?

    By the by does anyone have any inspirational name ideas for a company providing First Aid Training?


    Thanks
    Regards

    That's a tough one. What about 'Be prepared.' Use a bee in your logo with black and yellow lettering and make sure the logo includes "First Aid Training." Sorry, I'm sure someone will come up with something better!

    You need to provide us with more information eg who your target audience is, how you will advertise, how people will find out about you.

    A name that appeals to one section of the population won't appeal to others. For instance, if you call yourself the FirstAid Collective, traditional companies will be put off by the word Collective. If you expect customers to come to you from your local area via Yellow Pages, you don't need your name to explain what you do as you'll be in the health section of the directory. If you plan on advertising on radio, it's important that words in your name don't sound like another word eg sore/saw.

    I would advise avoiding the term First Aid in your name as you will have too much competition. Ideally a name should help you stand out from the crowd. It should convey a sense of your company values and what your specialisms are eg sports injuries, children, do you work weekends etc. A name like Quick Response has a dual meaning - sounds as if you will reply quickly, but also has a medical sense. Someone on this forum has the name Pain-Free, which would also suit your business, again because of the dual meaning (suggests the training sessions will be enjoyable and not difficult).

    There's more food for thought about names on my site here http://www.winningnames.co.uk/

    sorry susan
    cant agree with you there

    also sounds like my boiler has broken
    the car has been crashed.

    your name should always state what you do.

    first-aid-training.com would be a great choice.

    I mean dint get me wrong here. quick response would be great of you have the advertising budget of direct line, green flag, churchill

    I don't necessarily think that Quick Response is a good name for this particular business. I wouldn't presume to suggest names without knowing the target audience and whether a quick response was one of the business's features. It was an example of a name that evoked values and USP.

    Let's say I meet batpb1 at a party and she says her company is called First Aid Training. I go home and google it. Typing firstaidtraining.com, firstaid-training.com and first-aidtraining.com leads to three completely different organisations, none of them batpb1's. However, I might decide I like the look of one of them and give them my business instead.

    I'm thinking "first aid" here - and remember the training I did...the key there was speed...does this help?
