Business Registration, The Business Name

When you register a company in South Africa selecting your business name it crucial to the success of your business. There are a few factors to consider during your business registrations and select your business name.

Consider the following when registering a company and deciding on the business name:

  • Grab attention of the audience
  • Don’t give too much information about the business
  • Research a name before you register the company
  • Be unique. If your business name has common words in when customers search for you there will be a large number of results increasing the competition for your business and your chance to stand out
  • Test the name. Ask your consumer’s, friends and anyone really what they think of the name to gain valuable feedback
  •  Don’t be specific. There is a limit between ensuring customers know what the business is about and being too descriptive

TIP: When your business grows if your name is too specific it will limit your product offerings.

Guide to starting a business

“Plans are nothing; planning is everything.” Dwight D. Eisenhower

One of the key factors to a business’s success is the planning behind the business.


Set it in stone

One of the first things you should do when starting a business is formalising it in a plan. Although you may know and understand the vision you have for your business it is important to set it in stone. Business plans create a vision for your business and help ensure your objectives are achieved. Establishing a sense of the future for your business will keep you motivated and focused on your business objectives in the long run. It is important to remember creating one business plan throughout the life time of your company will not be sufficient, as the environmental factors change you should update your plan, preferably on an annual basis.


Know what you’re up against

All most every industry is made up of hundreds of businesses, knowing who and what they are will give you the competitive edge. Consumers are bombarded with thousands of adverts on a daily basis, to grab their attention you need to be unique. Doing good research into your consumers and competitors will allow you to understand their needs and through satisfying these you will be better than your competitors and fulfil the needs of your clients.

TIP: Compile a list of your top competitors analysing which are the biggest treat to your business in terms of market share and add note of elements you do and don’t like about their businesses to create a guide to what your business should and shouldn’t be doing.


Make it official

Now that you have put all your strategies in place the next step would be to register your business. Registering a business is a simple process and will give your business that sense of professionalism to compete against the top dogs in your industry. In South Africa you will register a private company if you are starting a business. Private companies are great if you are just starting out and still trying to expand your business. The laws surrounding them are simple and the registration of them is not going to put a dent in your pocket.
