Frequently Asked Questions

The overall process takes 12-13 days. The Managed projects start with a project kick-off call with your Branding Consultant. You can schedule this call online immediately after making your payment. After your kick-off call, the Branding consultant will write your project brief and send for your approval within 1 business day. Upon your approval, the contest will go live. The branding consultant will help manage your project throughout the brainstorming phase (typically 5 days). Upon the completion of brainstorming phase, the branding consultant will work with you to test the top 6 names from your Shortlist (3-5 Days).

What if I do not want to see hundreds of names?

What if I want to keep my project Confidential?

All our Managed packages include a standard Non Disclosure Agreement that the creatives must agree to, before they can read your project brief. Squadhelp team can also sign a custom Non Disclosure Agreement as part of Enterprise Managed package.

Will everyone be able to participate in my contest?
