Default Can You Help Me Find Right Tagline

Hi Everyone

thanks for looking here, so here's a thing:

I have named business 24 Handyman, reason for this name is that I want express my ability to do work after business hours, weekends and availbility in general. That's what I want to distinguish me from others. Word "Handyman" is the best description for this type of services so name it's not a cause here. What I'm looking for is a right tagline that will perfectly fit into it. Now I have 24Handyman-Maintenance and Repair services and I do not like it, "handyman" describe already what is in tagline.
I want emphasis that Im here to help, that with me you can go without long breaks.

my idea is: 24 Handyman - don't stop
- keep going
Well english is not my native language so I can be wrong here with meaning.
Please if you have some ideas put them here

Thanks
Marcin

Hi Marcin, my suggestion is ...

24 Hour Handyman
I'm here to help

I'd include the word hour in the name, as that is common. Regarding the tagline, I'm sure others can come up with something snazzier but my thought is to just say exactly what you are trying to communicate. Regarding "don't stop/keep going". I don't like that. It contradicts what you want people to do when they are reading your name/ad. You want people to stop and choose your service. Plus it just isn't clear what you mean.

Default easy one

I think your "issue" is easy.

here's a couple of thoughts...

"always there when you need us, 24/7"
"help is on the way, 24/7"
"our schedule is your schedule"
"we work around YOUR schedule"
"guaranteed 24/7 service"

Good luck.

many thanks Logan,
There is no option to change name, I just need a tagline, I wasn't sure about my proposals so I post this thread and your reply is very helpful. it seems that I need more options to choose from.

Thank you again
Marcin

Actually, Marcin, your original idea is good, in my opinion.
24 Handyman
Maintenance and Repair Services

You could add as well something like what Tim suggests.

It's helpful to further explain the 'handyman' part. If you specialize in residential or commercial, you might add that,too.

Hi MarcinR. I know you said the name is fixed but I would encourage you to perhaps think again before locking it in. You will now put a lot of effort into whatever name you have selected so you want it to be the most powerful it can be.

24 Handyman presents a very unclear picture to me. 24 Hour Handyman was an improvement but still a bit fuzzy. If you do actually offer services 24/7 then I think the suggestion on 24/7 Handyman was really great. Most people recognize what is being offered and in addition 7 is a lucky number. The tagline after that name is very much less important than getting the name right.

Hope you don't mind me raising my concerns.

Barry,

Thank you for your sugestions, I like them all even if I have to think all over again about it. I'm very happy that people like you want to share their opinions and that is priceless for me. I wanted "Handyman" included in my busienss name, but on its own it was already taken, so I came up with number 24 which refer to my ability of working at any time if there is a need. I think it is fine because next sign after number 24 is letter H and can be read as 24H also it's easy to remember and say. I did ask people what they think when hear/see 24 Handyman, their response was almost same: "it says that you are avaible 24 hours" that's what I wanted to hear. I have closed this chapter and I need to focus now on tagline, whether change it or leave as it is, next step will be website. Thank you again Barry I really appreciate your comment.

Marcin

Only you know what name will work best for you, Marcin, so go with it. No Problem.

Re the tagline I always believe you have to be customer centric rather than just describing the products and services you provide. In a sense you have to show the customer/prospect What's In It For Them.

Perhaps a tagline like
To Keep Your Home In Top Shape All The Time
might reflect that idea better.
