Create a Great Business Name
The first step you must take in starting a successful record label is to Create a Great Business Name For Your Record Label. This is a very important process. You want your Business name to be one that represents the kind of music you plan on releasing. The first things I want you to do are; get a pen and pad then start brainstorming. Write down ideas you may already have.
I suggest you even go on Google, read books, watch some movies, or do whatever research you can to come up with the best 8 to 10 names ever imagined. Stay away from the cliche names such as “Getting Money Records”. Be original and creative with your name selection. People can identify with brands so your name needs to be memorable and catchy. A name and a logo go hand in hand but we will get into the importance of a logo later on.
So you came up with these brilliant Business names for “your record label” that you know the world is going to love, what’s next? First you have to see if any of those names are taken. Do a Google search, or even do a domain name search at GoDaddy.com – The World’s No.1 Domain Registrar to see if any websites exist under any of the names. This is the time you need to decide on the name. If the name is available, I suggest you register it with GoDaddy.comright away.
After that you have to protect that business name. The way you protect that name is by trademarking it and your logo, with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. You can check their site out and learn a little bit more about trademarking. The Company I use to get most legal matters done quickly and at a reasonable price is called legalzoom.com. I use them because they take the hassle out of paper work which could become an expensive problem in the future. They make sure your application is done correctly and mistake free.
Good luck on Coming up with a Great Business Name For Your Record Label, and on your journey as a record exec. This is just the beginning, and there are great things to come for you and your record Label.
