Corporate Naming and Verbal Strategy
There's naming, and then there's corporate naming.
Naming is naming, right? Wrong. There is a critical difference between naming a product and renaming a major public corporation. The problem is that many naming companies simply do not understand the difference.
The RiechesBaird approach to naming combines linguistic creativity with the discipline and knowledge of business strategy and marketing to deliver a strategic solution … a solution that supports both your business and marketing goals.
There is no “black box.” We have unmatched experience in guiding senior executive teams successfully through a measured and managed naming process.
We find names that are legally available, free from inappropriate linguistic associations and appealing to key target audiences; we develop taglines that add dimension and deep connection; we create entire brand narratives that tell your story powerfully and directly.
From start-ups and early stage companies to corporate spin-offs, mergers and strategic corporate rebranding, our naming and verbal strategy track record is extensive and impressive.
