How To Leave Feedback On Your Naming Contest

Finding a name that reflects your business and what you are offering accurately can be a challenge. While you may have a good idea of what you like, it may not always be the best fit for your company or your company’s mission statement.

You want to find a name that not only reflects your brand but also makes you stand out from the competition. The good news is that our amazing and talented creatives are standing by, ready to help you find just that!

Here are a few helpful tips and tricks to finding the right name for your business

Let the creatives know what you think:

Let the creatives know what you like (and don’t like) about the submissions. You can either rate the submission, using the stars (see below) or, you can leave a comment. To leave a comment, click the entry and to the right, there is a box to leave a comment for the creative. If you like an entry but would like to see some changes made to it (maybe you feel that the
name is moving in the correct direction, but not quite right) you can also request that the creative make revisions. Although they are not required to, most are more than happy to make edits to their submissions if you express an interest in them.

Use the star rating system:

An easy way to let the creatives know what you think of their submissions is to rate the entries using the stars next to the submissions. The stars rate the entries 1-5 and let the creatives know how much you like them.

Be specific:

Maybe you like an entry and are interested in it, but there is something about it you don’t like? When you leave feedback be clear and concise. You want to be specific about your thoughts on the name suggestions, and, if you are requesting changes, what you would like to be changed.

Think about how the name will look on a sign:

When you are looking at the name suggestions try to envision them on a sign, or with your logo. Do they complement each other? Do they fit well together? Does it correctly convey what your company offers? Does the name let people know what your company does? If you decide to go with a random name, that is unique, but not specific, that is fine. However, be careful not to pick a misleading name. You don’t want people being confused about what your company markets.

Ask advice:

Finally, we know the importance of a second opinion. While you can create polls and ask family, friends, and co-workers their thoughts on the submissions, we also are more than happy to help as well! If you want any advice, or have questions about your contest or the submissions, feel
free to contact our support team at any time!
