In a hurry for a name, burnt out on brainstorming, or want to kick up your creativity and learn some pro tricks? Schedule a one-on-one Name It Now™ session with brand name expert Alexandra Watkins. She literally wrote the book on how to create brand names.
Your Name It Now™ session includes:
• Alexandra’s prep time to study your background materials
• Alexandra’s brainstorming a handful of creative names in advance
• A minimum of 75 minutes of personal screenshare/phone time together
• Notes from your call with all of the names, branding ideas and brainstorming links
The price for a private Name It Now™ session with Alexandra is $2500 although if you have been laid off from your job due to the Coronavirus, she is happy to lower her price. Alexandra only does one session max per day, so if you’d like to work with her, please get on her calendar right away.
Prepare For An Enlightening Experience with the Expert
At least one day before your session, you’ll provide some background information on your brand and naming challenge. This will allow Alexandra to get up to speed and brainstorm a handful of names for you in advance so you can hit the ground running.
During your supercharged session, Alexandra will give you her professional opinion on any names you’ve come up with on your own. (Some names that you think are duds may be diamonds in the rough, which Alexandra may be able to work with.)
Next, Alexandra will reveal a handful of starter names she’s already created for you. She’ll ask for your feedback on these so she has a good feel for what names and words melt your butter.
Then the fun begins . . . Alexandra will pull back the curtain and show you how she works her magic. Based on your unique needs, she will give you a completely customized creative experience. She’ll show you her best brainstorming tools, including secret sources so valuable to her that she didn’t reveal them in her book. And while she’s “namestorming,” you’ll be giving feedback and learning how you can do it on your own.
By the end of your session, you’ll have fresh name ideas and the knowledge, tools, and confidence to move forward. You’ll also have a document with the names and brainstorming links for your session. Plus, any taglines and branding ideas Alexandra came up with during your call.

Frequently Asked Questions
Who is a good fit for Name It Now™?
Small business owners and consultants who want awesome name ideas in a hurry.
Who isn’t a good fit for this service?
Anyone who needs a brand name for a company or product in an extremely challenging trademark area, for instance software or health care. Also, larger companies, who need more extensive name development, trademark work, and attention from Alexandra.
How many people can be on a call?
It’s recommended that no more than 2 people are on the call and that one of them is the “designated driver.” The fewer the number, the more you’ll maximize your time because you won’t spend time discussing the name ideas with each other.
What is the best way for me to prep for my call?
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. She recently did a Name It Now call with two clients who had not read her book and she ended up spending a good chunk of their time explaining the pitfalls of a lot of names they came up with on their own.
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 spend a few hours reviewing your background information and coming up with a handful of starter names to run by you.
