If you want people to take you seriously, you’ve got to consider your business seriously. These simple first steps will get your crafty biz ready to go live.
The Name Game
When it comes to picking a name, you have to make sure the one you want is actually available. Search on Google and Etsy for businesses and crafters with similar names. For example, you don’t want to pick a name like Sublime Stitchery when there’s already a Sublime Stitching. It’s also worth it to check the database of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (www. uspto.gov) to make sure nobody’s using the name you want at the national level. And try it out as a dot-com to see if anyone else already has the domain.
It’s wise to avoid an overly descriptive name that might hinder you from expanding your business. For example, you wouldn’t expect Barbaric Berets to sell anything other than violently French hats. Holly Klump of misshawklet advises, "Never name your business after your username! All your old posts from message boards will come up when people google you. "
If you’re setting up as a sole proprietorship (which anybody doing business alone automatically is) but are using a descriptive name for your biz, you have to register your fictitious name, sometimes called Doing Business As (DBA) or Operating As (OA). This is done at the local, county or state level—it depends where you live.
