Your brand name will last longer and get used more than any other investment you make in your business. Getting it right is the foundation of a good brand. Getting it wrong can be disastrous.
You can’t afford a costly mistake. But you can afford to work with our Chief Executive Boss Lady Alexandra Watkins, the creative powerhouse behind Eat My Words.
Our clients, including Coca-Cola, Google, and Twitter, pay Eat My Words up to $50,000 for full service name development packages. But we know that even our $15,000 full service package is out of reach for many small businesses and shoestring entrepreneurs. And most people don’t have weeks and weeks to wait for name suggestions.
That’s why we created Name It ASAP. This personalized package is priced at just $6000 and offers an affordable way for individuals (as opposed to established brands) to personally get help from our prolific founder, Alexandra Watkins, author of THE book on brand names, Hello, My Name Is Awesome, and the leading authority on how to create brand names that stick.
This service allows solopreneurs, to get a range of high-quality, high-value, Eat My Words-caliber name ideas for just a fraction of what it costs to hire our team for a full service engagement. And unlike our full service clients, you’ll learn pro tricks to come up with names on your own.
You’ll get creative name suggestions, a highly-productive brainstorming session, live video recording, tips, and more.
When you book a supercharged one-on-one Name It ASAP package, you will be engaged with Alexandra throughout the entire process. Here’s what she will do for you:
• Give you the official Eat My Words’ Creative Brief for you to complete

Some of the names Alexandra
has come up with during
Name It ASAP sessions:
Expect a transformational and fun creative experience.
At least 5 business days before your live session, you’ll provide background information on your brand using the official Eat My Words’ Creative Brief. This will allow Alexandra to get up to speed on your challenge and brainstorm in advance. (She’ll set up a call with you if she has any questions before she starts.)
During your supercharged session, Alexandra will give you her professional opinion on any names you’ve come up with on your own. (She can always spot a diamond in the rough, which Alexandra may be able to turn into gems.)
Next, she will reveal 40+ creative names that she’s came up with in advance. She’ll ask for your feedback on them, so she can see what you like and explore more names for you on the call if you like.
Then Alexandra will pull back the curtain and show you how she works her magic. Based on your unique needs, she will give you a customized creative experience. You’ll get access to her best brainstorming tools, including secret sources so valuable to her that she doesn’t reveal them in her book or masterclass. (Even if you spend the whole call talking about the names she came up with for you, she’ll still send you her best brainstorming resources.)
By the end of your session, you’ll have fresh name ideas and the knowledge, tools, and confidence to move forward.
Your package also includes a personalized document with the names and custom brainstorming links from your session.

Frequently Asked Questions
What makes someone eligible for Name It ASAP? Are there any restrictions?
This “starter service” is exclusively for individuals, micro businesses, and startups with revenue under $1M. Doctors, attorneys, and CPAs are also excluded. These sessions are for new clients of Eat My Words only and are limited to one per company. Alexandra will occasionally turn down a request for a session if what she is naming doesn’t align with her interests, values, or what’s realistically possible in such a short amount of time. For instance, if you are in an extremely challenging trademark class such as software, financial services, or healthcare. If that’s you, please see our other naming services.
How can Alexandra come up with so many names so quickly?
Alexandra has been naming products and companies exclusively for 17 years and has created tens of thousands of names during that time, so she is really fast. And in addition to her expertise, she has a vast database of prior names she has come up with and can often reference past projects to help with yours.
What’s the best way to prepare for my session?
The more information you can include in your Creative Brief, the more productive and successful your session will be. Also, if you haven’t done so already, it’s suggested that you read (or at least skim) the first three breezy chapters of Alexandra’s book, Hello, My Name is Awesome.
How can I maximize my time with Alexandra?
To give Alexandra as much creative leeway as possible, provide all of the background information you’re asked for in advance, including any names you’ve come up with on your own and any words you might want to explore having in your new name.
How does Alexandra prep for my call?
She will need at least 5 business days to study your background information, review the names you’ve come up with on your own, dive into your her brainstorming sources, and create a solid list of at least 40 starter names. If she has questions before she starts, she’ll set up a quick call with you.
Will my names be trademark screened?
Due to the quick turnaround and low cost, the names presented to you will not have been screened for trademark conflicts, however there will definitely be names on your list that will clear. Alexandra has an excellent track record for getting names that get “Go” grades from her longtime go-to trademark screener. She will share his contact information with you after your session. He can screen your favorites names for you at a fraction of what you would pay attorney. And as a client of Alexandra’s, you won’t have to pay his $100 set up fee.
Will the domain names be available?
Again, due to the quick turnaround and low cost, domain names will not be screened. However, Alexandra is happy to suggest domain name modifier words for you. (No one expects new companies to have exact match domain name any more and having a modifier word in your name, e.g. Painting, will help search engines find you.)
What kind of payment is accepted?
Payment can be made via ACH bank transfer, paper check, or credit card via PayPal. (We request that you cover the 3% credit card transaction fee.)
