It used to be that new businesses could simply hang a shingle outside a newly rented storefront and welcome people inside. How to keep them looking (and buying)? Sell something interesting, pay for some advertising, and pray for good word of mouth.

These days, things are a heck of a lot more difficult. Pick a name that rolls off the tongue and you might wind up in court with a company that already snagged that name long ago. Even performing the necessary research to ensure your new company name is unique won't cut it anymore.

In today's global market, your storefront reaches as far as you're willing to pay for postage. Learn how to use social networks to your brand's advantage, and the whole world will walk past your windows. With that in mind, it would surely suck to find an unforgettable company name that's available, only to discover your brand name is already taken by a cyber-squatter on Facebook and Twitter...

So how do you put together a plethora of possible names, get feedback on whether they are truly awesome, while ensuring their social spaces are available to grow into? NameMedia believes they have exactly what you need to answer the question: "What's My Name?"

Today Name Media unveiled NameFind, a web-based "one-stop business name generator platform" allowing budding business owners to uncover possibilites based on whatever they think will say it all. Name ideas can be built based on a company specialty, location, product type, how customers will interact and more. From there, business owners can check for available domain names combining their ideas together, then sneak a peek to see if social media sites have similar branding options available.

Can you do this on your own? To some extent, yes, but the process of brainstorming and researching will definitely eat up time spent on building early business leads. Do you really have that time to spare? NameFind brings it all together in one easy to use interface, and even provides a method for you to receive all-important feedback on your name choices from your friends and colleagues.
