Hello,

I am trying to help a niece start a new business with her best friend - They currently work as assistants but work too many hours and make no money they hardly have time to go to school.

They are interested in launching their own brand as virtual assistants they thought about naming their brand

FABULOUS ASSISTANTS MEDIA


But they just found out that name is taken however they looove the name


Can you suggest other names using the word "Fabulous"

I don't think "fabulous" is good to use at all - it sounds like a fashion makeover show. I'd skip right over a company with a name like that. It doesn't sound serious or responsible or mature to me.

Maybe they should use a word that encompasses the most important quality in a media assistant (I don't know what that is because I don't even know what a media assistant is - I just know no one writes a job description with "fabulous" in it).

They need to work harder and boil it down to one word, two tops.

I agree, fabulous is a word used by gay guys or ditsy blondes, not professional assistants, just gives the wrong vibe. This is a professional business so don't try to be overly cutesy. Also where does media come in? Sounds like they want to be virtual assistants, not sure how media has any role in that or why it should have a role in the name?

I have a 2 virtual assitants one of our the phillipine and 1 out of India. Not only do they do normal assitant stuff for me but one is experienced in graphic design and the other SEO and content writing so not only do I have an assistant who many people would pay a lot of money for but I also have an SEO guy and a graphic designer, again two skills I woudl otherwise pay say $30 an hour plus for but both assistants work for $6 an hour and you can actually find them cheaper than that.

If they want to make more money virtual assistant may not be the way to go as there are highly educted VA's out of the country with very impressive skillsets who will work for nothing. If they do decide to pursue this I would advertise and focus on the fact they are American.

The one and really only thing thats an annoyance is oftentimes due to time different I'll have to have calls with tehm at odd times. The other thing is though they speak perfect english some things get lost in translation. The other day I asked them to whip someone into shape for me, just jokingly and as a figure of speach. My assistant told me in India they don't agree with capital punishment and they would not whip anyone for me. I had to explain I did not literally want somebody beaten. I'm not even kidding true story from a few days ago.

Can you suggest other names ...
ASS MEDIA

it's memorable
and naughty
plays off "mass media"
The "ASS" is short for Assistants
and their virtual assistants literally can save your tuckus!

But most people will probably confuse their business for adult entertainment...
