Local Name Tips

Here are a few tips for naming a local locksmith company.

#1 Keep it Local

Most small businesses will never expand larger than a couple cities. Because of this you should try to localize your business name. Think about natural landmarks or other things your area is known for and possibly work that into your brand. People can smell a fake or “Not Local” locksmith from a mile away.

#2 Use Your Main City’s Name

Using your main city’s name can have huge benefits when marketing online. It will help in Google Listings, local directories, Google Organic results and more. Be aware that a lot of spammy locksmith companies (Not real) do this too so be sure to keep your local touch.

#3 Don’t Make It Too Long

I know I mentioned this above but don’t make your businesses’ new name too long. A long business name can be hard to brand, hard to work with, and hard to remember.
