1. Looking for the best name/s for a beach cafe, right on the water
(300 m2), in an area frequented by funky locals, business people,
families and
tourists alike. The area's eclictic atmospher is buzzing in summer,
yet slow in winter. The cafe will offer speciality coffees (Espressos,
Arabic, Syphoned, Plungers ... etc), fine French patisserie, light
meals, gourmet salads, sandwiches and new age non-alcoholic drinks. It
will house a book/authors corner and host TV nights.
The decore has an easy, simple yet modern feel to it.

What's in a name? all the above. Modern, Classy, Quality, Relax &
Comfort with a hint of French.

2.Can you point to web resources for similar exercises or for anything
that may help in defining the offerring?

Good Luck.

Hello Ef2003,

I'm sorry the name suggestions didn't satisfy you, and that you
already rated the answer. Agreed it is a creative brain-storming
process with not one "right" answer. If you tell me which names you
liked best, I might be able to find more in that direction. Also, it
would help me if you tell me if the website "Start Your Own Cafe
Business" was helpful regarding the second part of your question.

Again, good luck with your cafe!

I am quite disappointed with the answer's quality.

Although the researcher used sound strategies like picking clues from
my submitted brief, linguistic approach and logical access to some
limited web resources, yet it is clear that it was done in hast, in a
lets-get-it-out-of-the-way manner. No innovation is evident in coming
up with 'smart' names or in coming up with web links of real value.

My posted fee of $20 may have been on the lower side, yet what I got
isn't worth much. Can't recommend the service as it stands.

Yes ef2003 I can understand how it may seem that way way to you and
hence your seemingly justified comments but what you are not aware of
is that  many hard working researchers have gone to work on questions
just like yours over last couple of months, heaps of similar questions
in fact for business names, with not one questioner actually agreeing
to pay any one researcher. In other words some extremely well
researched and very comprehensive replies have gone back to people 
like yourself in regards business name and business catchprases that
would have likely cost a huge amount via a business consultanacy but
not a dollar back to any single researcher from any questioner. Check
out some exmples yourself. Conseqeuntly most reaserachers have given
up and either avoid such qusetions or make a quick response in the
knowledge that questioner is not "fair dinkum" as we say in Australia
and is really after a lot of good material for zero cost.  For
instance type in Lawnmower and see what  one questioner did; just got
heaps of good ideas recently and then closed the question paying
nothing; an aussie too. Further back there is even worse examples

Dear Ef2003:

One of the least-used customer options at Google Answers remains the
Clarification Request.  Many of the GA Researchers have discussed
among ourselves how we can assist customers to easily understand that
if they are displeased with their answer, they may *request
clarification* of the answer *before* rating and closing a question. 
We always want to please the customer, fully meet their needs and
exceed their expectations.

Many of us will include a statement like "should you need
clarification on anything I've provided, please ask and I'll be happy
to explain."  Even when text such as that is added in a Researcher's
answer, a customer still sometimes misses that very valuable option. 
It's a harried and hurried world we live in and sometimes total
awareness gets mislaid during the rush.

Along with the Clarification option, the comments section is open for
use to customers for conversation with other Researchers and with
other customers.  Sometimes one customer will greatly assist another. 
You'll know Researchers by their screen names appearing in blue - a
live link.  This is also a great customer option because a
Researcher's past answers may be reviewed.

Although GA Researchers do not work for Google, we are independent
contractors who work with Google Answers in striving to assure that
customers receive the value they expect.  We really do aim to please
and I wish you success with future questions.  :)

Well, I thought my suggestion of 'Beachcomber' was inspired. 

And it was absolutely free!

Also, you only need one inspirational name and you are in business.

The next time I am in Wagga Wagga (or wherever), I am looking forward
to enjoying a few gallons of the amber liquid at ...

Greetings, ef2003!

You say "it is clear that it was done in hast, in a
lets-get-it-out-of-the-way manner. No innovation is evident in coming
up with 'smart' names or in coming up with web links of real value."

I guess that I think that the Answer you received was well done, and
I'm curious as to why you say that it was done hastily, and that there
is no innovation present. What would the Answer have needed to contain
for you to **not** consider it hasty? What would you have expected to
see in the Answer that would make you consider it innovative?

The answers to these questions will make a great deal of difference in
how well Researchers can assist you with this Question.
