Success Leaves Tracks
You started your business with the intent that your business will be a success, a business that will stand the test of time, you can name at least twenty successful businesses, cant you? Do those successful businesses have a custom logo? Yes they do! There is not a successful business that exists that does not have a logo or symbol that their own customers do not recognize. So what should you do? Get a Logo!
How a Good Logo Enhances Your Business!
A good logo builds your brand design and helps you to stand out from your competition. When you design and get a logo you incorporate who you are as a business and what it is you do into a graphic that people will see and remember. The image you project with your logo on your marketing documents can make the difference between a customer choosing you or your competitor. So invest in a proper logo that sets the tone for your business. Example if a daycare center chose the logo of a hammer and a nail would you send your kid to that daycare? No Way! So a logo gives customers a view of what your business is all about before you even say a word! Same daycare with a logo image of caring hands, may do a better job of getting your attention.
It’s better to start off your businesses' brand design with the right logo at the beginning of the process, than it is to change up or start branding later on in the game. In building your brand design and your marketing tools you will need a good logo for when you print your business cards, when you develop your website, when you send a proposal or an invoice, also if you attend trade shows organizers may request a copy of your logo for added promotion.
No matter what type of business you are in, even if you sell a multi level product you want to let your own business trademark shine through. Get your own trademark just like many of the popular logos we already know, so that people can start recognizing YOU.
What is a Logo?
A logo is an image that is used to promote your business and helps your business gain visibility. Like the example above a logo should closely relate to what you do, so without saying a word a customer can get the gist of the type of company you are, are you a sports company or a financial company?
Logos can be a purely graphic image like an umbrella or circles etc, a logo can also be composed of the name of your company or product for example the coca-cola logo.What Makes a Good Logo?
- A good logo is a logo that accurately represents your company.
- A logo that can be copied to various backgrounds and still look good.
- A logo that can be resized and reprinted well.
Ask yourself will this logo print well on a black background and a white or red background? Does the logo look good in various sizes?
What They Don’t Tell You About Your Logo!
The secret: Having a logo designed with multiple colors looks great but will cost you more when you have that same logo printed on business cards, brochures or promotional products and apparel.
Logos with multiple colors or uniquely shaded colors cost almost triple the price when you are have them printed on things like promotional products.
Solution: Go ahead and get that great full color logo for your website etc. But also create a very similar version where the colors don’t touch, use only one or two colors in this second version, then use this second version for printing on promotional products or promotional apparel etc.

Idea! Once you've had a designer draft up a few logo ideas, create some buzz and ask your email newsletter readers or your social followers which logo design they prefer. Remember – Every time someone sees your logo they will know what company they are dealing with and what you are about.
