Do I need a logo when starting out?
I finally came up with a business name and wondering if I need a logo right now. I won't be able to create one myself and looking at everything I need to do and my limited budget, does paying someone to help with a logo make the most sense right now? Thank you for your feedback.
Yes, you need a logo. The logo is an integral part of your branding. A logo helps the consumers to differentiate your brand from the rest. And this logo is a symbol of what you stand for. There are free logo generators online where you can have a look but mostly everything is generic among them. But you can get the service of PrintStop to help you in designing the logos which they do at a very affordable price. I myself have been associated with them for all my designing needs for the past 2 years. They haven't let me down. You can get the logo design done with PrintStop at a very affordable price.
Yes, With start your business, you need logo because your logo reflects your business and user easily find your business from that.
My personal opinion: yes, you need to have a logo. As sooner clients start to associate your logo with your brad, the better it will be for your business Thanks to logo customers will tell your service apart from a competitors.
However, you also one to ask yourself how you plan to advertise your product or service. Will you use signs or posters to communicate your marketing?
Logo is very important when it aids in quick brand recognition, to establish trust, and to help visually set you apart from competitors.
From a professional standpoint, your logo is an important part of your branding and allows you to better connect and expose your brand to your chosen audience. You should use your logo as your main image (profile picture) across all of your social media platforms for better brand exposure and awareness.
Users will automatically associate this image with your company, so it is definitely worth splashing out on a professional graphic designer to create the perfect image to represent your brand.
When choosing a logo, remember that simple is always more memorable and different colours connect with different emotions and meanings (eg. Blue= Trust, Green=Healthy, Orange=Friendly).
I agree with many others. The logo is a part of your brand, but you can develop that when funds are more liquid. Be sure to present your name as professional looking as possible. Your name is the first step and website can be a useful tool, if it is well done and professional. There are many Wordpress site options online that are easy to use to create a phase one site.
Your brand is more than a logo. It is the quality of your work, how you treat clients and your presence in the market. Make a name for yourself first, then worry about how you market it.
You don't need but having a logo makes you or your business look more professional or legitimate. Everyone will have their own idea/look of what they want their logo to look like and so there is no right/wrong answer to how/what your logo should be. There are a few websites (just search for them on Google or Bing) that you can use to create your own logo "most are free". If you are hot happy with what you have done to create a logo, then seek out a professional service to create one for you.
Yes of course you need a logo from the biginning ,even I think LOGO is more important than the name , specially strong logo can attract people without even knowing the name .
Yes. How we advertise and interact online is a huge part of every business now, and having a recognizable logo does make people remember your company. There are a lot of other elements that go into marketing, but every piece has its place. For Key West Video, we've had many clients let us know that they had seen our advertising online; which our logo plays a big part in, and they may not have needed us at that point in time, but because we are memorable and stick out, they remembered to contact us at the time they needed us.
I'd say your personal brand should overshadow any company brand if you are working on your own, or have a small business with staff. Get out there and collect cards, rather than give them out. This cuts down on the flood of solicitation emails you will get after every networking event. I tell people I just don't use cards (even though I do for the right reasons). Get theirs and send them your complete contact information (if you think they might be a good connection). Send a quick thanks but not now response to the others.
A logo can come anytime. When you are off to the races, rebrand if you had a logo in the early days, or get professional help from a branding expert.
