Oven Man Adelaide

The Oven Man Adelaide! These individual words are not a unique business name! According to our competition they are words describing what they do. And so when they advertise on Google they justify using our registered business name “Adelaide Oven Repairs” in their search return title:

Oven Man Adelaide Advert

If they were using real language to describe what they do, it would be; Oven Repairs in Adelaide not Adelaide Oven Repairs

How to stop competitors causing confusion in the market place. Apart from going to court and spending lots of money to have them stop, not a lot. And spending that money means we have stopped one of many. We would need to do it time and again to stop others from doing the same thing. 

The Oven Man Adelaide is a domain we will use to deter this particular company from the practice of “Passing Off”. But in the longer term our business needs to evolve to a longer term approach, hence the change to Oven RepairZ with the “Z” instead of the “S” at the end of the the word. This means it is no longer a word. Rather it will become a trademark and thereby impede companies from using the term Repairz in their search results.


Back in the print media days, if you wanted to get a leap over the competition in the Yellow pages you could use a name like AArdvark Oven Repairs with double A’s in your business name to get listed first. This alphabetic strategy morphed on the internet search world into Exact Match Domains (EMD’s). The early bird would get the worm if they secured the EMD that related to their business activity. It’s been so successful that others wanting to rise in the search results ranking started using the business name of others and called the practice every day language rather than the true activity of “passing off”. 

Metropolitan Plumbing is about the test this in court against Sharpe Electrical. We wait with baited breath!

Oven Man Repairz

What we learnt long ago is the derivative thinking of our competitor, meant they would always be trying to copy our innovations. We segmented our business from the overarching category ‘Appliance Repairs’ to ‘Oven Repairs’ long before others, including Google, considered this was a business in its own right.

So we have registered the business name Oven Man Repairz and secured a number of related domains as a defensive position. We bought the domain www.adelaideovenguy.com.au before our competitor considered copying our business segmentation model. Oven Man, grrr how many permutation of a name do you have to lock down in order to stop your competitors. We bought Oven Specialists, Oven Guy and about a hundreds others, but not Oven Man.  Not that buying the domain Oven Man would have been the end of it. These guys would have kept going till they found a name that would work. They registered the business name Adelaide Oven Specialists thinking they have found gold! Only to learn that we already owned the domain name.

Contingency Bookings

If you not sure what Contingency bookings are; then read on! It’s when a customer makes a booking, but then rings around to find another repairer who can maybe make it earlier! This is not just frowned upon, but makes up a bit part of lost revenue for any repair operation. We charge a $30 booking fee which is waived if the job proceeds.
