Case Study: Symplaris
Brian Behnken is a smart guy… like a really smart guy. The kind who starts businesses, sells them for tidy sum and starts them again. What’s more, he knows how to dig through data and find savings for clients who are eager to it in their employee healthcare plans.
But, Brian needed to start from scratch. He needed a name, logo, tagline, a look and feel for his new company, and he needed a website and marketing materials to make a big impact within his marketplace.
He chose JSH&P.
“Symplaris” came out of the word simple, of course, and the extension aided in an ease of saying the term. It sounds established without being trendy.
“We tried literally hundreds of naming possibilities and worked out way through the domains to find a .com that was available,” stated JSH&P founder Mike Farley. “Funny thing was that ‘simplaris’ was available, but priced through an auction site at $8,800. We secured ‘symplaris’ with the “Y” and made a reasonable offer to the company that owned the “i” version. They wouldn’t budge. Dumb on their part, if you ask me… since we just rendered their naming convention useless.”
