5 Methods to Improve Your Digital Content Marketing StrategyDecember 5, 2020
There is little question that professional logo design can make a big difference in your business or organization’s success. A powerful and compelling logo builds your brand better than any single strategy or tactic.
Why is this? It’s because your logo shouldn’t just build your brand; it should be the foundation for it.
Your logo is likely the first thing anyone sees and even precedes your website in importance. After all, what good is a well-designed and crafted website if all potential clients remember is a poor quality logo?
What Is Professional Logo Design?
If you use a trusted logo designer, you won’t go wrong. Just about anyone can identify a nice image or an attention-getting typeface. However, it takes an educated professional to understand how to symbolize a business and its values.
A professional logo designer will spend hours learning about your business and researching your industry. They will create multiple sketches and drafts for your input. And they won’t consider the project complete until you are fully satisfied with the final result.
Among other considerations, you want a scalable logo for placement on anything—from a business card to the side of a building. You also want it to be easy to reproduce, without intricate details.
You also want your logo to be enduring, just like your business, even though logos for enduring companies will evolve. And let’s not forget color. Color is part of your brand and can make or break either—or both.
The Purpose and Benefits of a Logo
You might spend days, weeks, or months coming up with the perfect name for your business or organization. But names are not always unique or original. A logo must be both. And to ensure that it’s for your business only, you should register it.
The most significant benefit of a strong logo is how it tells your story and acts as a common element through every marketing channel you use. If it helps, when you look over logo drafts, imagine each on a pencil, a tee-shirt, and filling a stadium’s “big board.”
Your Logo and Your Marketing Plan
We already mentioned your website, which should also be designed by professionals. Your logo should appear on every page of your site, though in an understated way, so it doesn’t overwhelm the pages’ messages.
The logo’s work doesn’t stop there, though. It continues through every phase, strategy, and campaign you implement.
- Business cards and letterhead
- On-page SEO (especially the alt text for your logo)
- Promotional products
- Social media
- Online advertising
- Traditional media advertising
- Local sponsorships
- And much more
If you’re successful at all this, consider your influential logo to be precious property.
