Why We Like Their Name
We’ve mentioned it plenty of times but here it is again: a great strategy for a domain name consists of two, solid words that tell exactly what our business does. And this name didn’t cost them a fortune.

Amberjack

What They Do
Founded by two anglers from Maine and Montana, Amberjack gets people away from their computers and out in the water with a fishing rod in hand and in the company of family and friends. They can book your trip, outfit you with the best gear, and find you a place to stay. Amberjack wants you away from your screen and out on the river.

Why We Like Their Name
Great general name that makes sense for what they do. While it probably cost them a fair amount of money, amberjack isn’t as high-profile a fish as trout or yellowfin, so the most likely got this name for under six figures.

SimpleTherapy

What They Do
SimpleTherapy understands that you can’t leave work to visit a physical therapy clinic and that the cost can be prohibitive, so they offer online video exercise therapy that’s personalized and adaptive. You can rehabilitate at your leisure at anytime, anywhere, and for an affordable price. They are the low-cost solution for the millions of adults who experience musculoskeletal pain, the number two reason for doctor’s visits in the United States.

Why We Like Their Name
Many startups try to make things simpler and easier to use and this is what SimpleTherapy does in the world of physical therapy. I probably sound like a broken record, but this is another nice two-word domain that was most likely purchased at a reasonable price.
