A witty or funny business name can play a big part in helping small businesses succeed, a new study by Simply Business reveals.

A third (28%) of people say they’d be more likely to shop at a small or local business with a funny or witty business name compared to those without, according to a survey of over 2,000 consumers by Simply Business. Furthermore, two thirds (64%) of people would also be more likely to notice a small or local business with a funny or witty business name.

To celebrate the wit, creativity, and humour of the nation’s small business owners, Simply Business are looking to crown one standout business with the title of ‘Britain’s Best Small Business Name’.

Small businesses are vital to local communities and people are noticeably preferring to shop small rather than at larger chains. Given the choice, nearly nine in ten (88%) people prefer to shop at small, local, or independent businesses when compared to larger chains, or a mixture of small businesses together with larger chains.

Alan Thomas, UK CEO at Simply Business said, “We see our role as more than an insurance provider – we’re champions for small businesses, so it only feels right to celebrate the creativity and personality of some of the best business names in the UK.

“With close to six million SMEs across the UK, acting as the lifeblood of our communities and collectively providing trillions of pounds to the UK economy, the competition out there is fierce. A smart business name has never been so important.

“We’re incredibly proud to provide tailored insurance to over 800,000 creative and diverse small businesses and we’re here to celebrate the wittiest and best names in the UK.
