I want to start a small service that does Facebook marketing and advertising for small local businesses, i.e., local pizza places, electricians, yoga studios, gyms, etc. I prefer to offer only 1 service (Facebook) and not consult on numerous different social platforms. I have NO idea what to name my service and I keep going into circles. I thought of calling my service something like "Local ______" so that clients would know I specialize in finding local customers to visit their business. I think it may tell the benefit of using me. But then I think I'd be better off doing something easier like just using my last name and "Marketing", like Smith Marketing or or Smith Agency. Does one approach have an advantage over the other?

There are many things to consider when choosing a name for your business, especially when it will be primarily online. You should always be building a long term brand so including a specific geolocation or marketing in the name will limit you to that area and industry. So you must consider if you will be offering services anywhere and if later you want to add web development or SEO. You're name should be ideally available in .com and available on any social networks you want to use. is a good place to check. Make sure there are no trademarks currently on the name you choose. Make sure it's easy to say, spell, and remember. Ideally keep it less than two words and less than 18 characters. 10 more things to avoid when choose a name: For a detailed and specific advice for your company feel free to schedule a call:
