You have spent many hours enhancing your artistic skills, read many articles about building a WordPress artist website, art marketing, blogging, and social media marketing. The last thing you have to do before you start selling your art online is to learn how to write perfect art business names.
You want a catchy name for your art business, but do you know that art business names are crucial for the growth of art businesses?
The name you decide for your business will establish what your business has to offer and will attract a specific group of people to your site.
Naming your art business sets the tone for your business, but it might be easier than you think, and I am going to share with you the steps I took to write my art business names so you can build your dream art business.
Before we get started, I want to stress the importance of picking the right name.
Your business goals today will be different 5 years from now, so you want to make sure that your name allows your business to expand for future growth.
Your name should be able to embrace eventual product extensions. A notable example is the company name change Steve Jobs made from Apple Computer to Apple. This gave the company room to grow into yet unimagined products like watches, iPads, iPhones and other products. (Source: My Say Forbes)
Business Names For Artists
Branding your business starts with the name you choose for your business.
Your art company name will be your domain name, blog name, and social media account names.
The best place to start is by incorporating your name into your art business name.
The value of your artwork will be higher when people know that your art is unique and not mass-produced
Your name allows art collectors to connect with you on a personal level, which is essential for art sales.
Think about some of your favorite artists like Norman Rockwell, Thomas Kinkade, and Picasso.
What is the visual you get when you hear those names?
You can visualize their unique artistic style.
Your goal is to have people visualize your artwork when they hear your name.
Check For Domain Availability
It is important to check to see if your name is available for a domain name.
I am glad that I decided to see if my name was being used online before I choose it for my art business name.
My name is David Nevue, and there is a famous pianist named David Nevue.
His domain name is davidnevue.com.
When I discovered this, I knew I had to alter the name of my art business.
Go to BlueHost to see if your name is available.
You will want to do this with all of the name ideas you come up with.
Creative Name Ideas
You might want to consider adding additional words that describe your artwork and art business.
Keep in mind that you do not want to be too specific so that you can expand your business in the future.
Your name +
- Fine Art
- Art Gallery
- Art Studio
- Creative Design
These are just a few keywords that you might want to add to the end of your name.
The additional words you use will be helpful for people to discover you online.
I choose Nevue Fine Art Marketing for my art business because I wanted to attract art collectors who are searching for the style of art I create, and I also wanted artists like you to visit so I can help you to grow your online art business.
I didn’t use David Nevue Art because David Nevue (the pianist) has already branded himself online. I wanted to separate my art business from his music business.
Last Thoughts On Art Business Names
Make a list of several art names and double-check to see the availability at BlueHost. This will help you to narrow down the names.
Take the list you have and put it aside for a day or two.
Go back to the list with fresh eyes and see what stands out.
At that point, you will know what the perfect name is for your art business.
You might want to ask some of your closest friends to help you. Give them your list and see which name is the most popular choice.
No matter what you choose, be sure to double-check to see if the artist name you decide on is not already being used, especially before you print and publish online marketing materials.
I am sure you don’t want to deal with any legal conflicts. In addition, you are going to need an artist website and social media accounts with a consistent art business name so buyers can easily find you.
Make sure to research to discover what names are available. Always keep your artist brand and artist goals in mind when you are deciding on the perfect name for your art business.
