Brainstorming is the most popular technique in the industry of branding. Even the most reputable ad agencies use brainstorming as a means to come up with the catchiest slogans, company brand names or domain names. So what you need to do is take pen and paper and start writing down relevant keywords, and some interesting/catchy/fantasy words that might be connected with your niche. For example, if you are selling fashion dresses for ladies, then obviously the word “dress” would be in the name. What other words could be connected to the niche? Words like “glam”, “chic”, “satin”, “fashion”, “catwalk”, and hundreds of other words. All you have to do is play and combine words to come up with something unique, logical, good sounding and of course with something that is available if you check Instantdomainsearch.com. Here you can see domain name search results as you type.
