How to Find and Secure a Brand Name?

Trawling the internet for available names is tedious and time consuming. Also once you have a business established it’s very frustrating when some random kid in Wisconsin is squatting on your Twitter name or Facebook Page. Cue new online service KnowEm.

KnowEm was developed to assist everyone – from individuals to Fortune 500 companies – in discovering where their names, brands, or trademarked terms are available (or stolen) on Social Media networks. KnowEm helps you secure your name across the vast social media landscape but we can also show you how to contact each site in order to have the name released and returned to you.

To date KnowEm claims to have helped to reserve over 350,000 profiles and reported back on over 25,000 issues of squatting and misrepresentation of a brand, username or trademarked term. This is all done with local employees in New Jersey, New York.

They have a free domain checking system on their site (which is really quick) and a number of commercial packages.
