Before you even mentioned it, I tried a Google image search for your product.
I held my breath and peeked through my fingers half expecting to see something else
Folks need to consider all of the possible "negative" associations with names they come up with before they say "Hey, that sounds GREAT!"
That is true. I'll try to keep in mind to keep my future promotions out of the "gutter", but you also can't argue the success "Go Daddy" has had.
You'll see on my web page, www.slapon.net
, why I chose Slap-on, but I was also aware of the inferences people could make toward the name at the time I chose it. I needed something that could succinctly convey the advantage of the attachment and be easy to remember. I don't believe it hurts the product's image by the other connotations people have for the word. It might actually work in its favor and help people remember the product's name.
Thanks for participating in the conversation.
