2 Good Reasons to Apply for Corporate Name Changes

Jerry’s Guide to the World Wide Web was Yahoo’s first name. Nissan used to be called Datsun, and the first name for Google was BackRub! There’s nothing new about corporate name changes, but let’s look at 2 examples of why a corporate name change may be appropriate for your business.

Example 1: You started a business designing websites. Now you create brands and build mobile apps, as well as custom email templates, games, logos and more. If you’re still operating under a name like Toronto City Web Design Inc., you’re probably missing out on some very profitable projects. Time to speak to an expert on corporate name changes!

Example 2: You started out as a general contractor, building decks, fixing foundations, remodelling bathrooms – doing anything that could possibly fall under the term ‘general contractor’. Now, 3 years into it, you are the go-to guy for creating outdoor living spaces. That’s become your speciality. That’s what people know you for. You love making outdoor living spaces, and that’s where the money is. Your designs are so great that you’re even getting calls from other provinces. You’d like to really capitalize on this niche, but part of your business name says ‘general contractor’. It’s too broad. It isn’t you. You are now focused, and that’s a good thing. You’d like to be known as the only source for beautiful outdoor living spaces. Time to speak to an expert on corporate name changes!
