A-Z of Marketing: Logo Design
A logo is a tremendously important part of building a brand that your customers instantly recognise. It can be a symbol of trust and an automatic notification that a product is from a particular company. Logos have the power to evoke emotion, tantalise senses, and trigger memories. If you think of the ‘Coca-Cola’ logo, how do you feel? Can you almost taste the drink? A logo is a representation of what your business, products, and services are all about. Despite your logo being only one part of your brand, it’s perhaps one of the most important parts because it is the visual representation of your company.
If you’re putting off creating a business logo, maybe these benefits of having a logo will change your mind.
- Encourage faith in your products – You may have the best product the world has ever seen, but if it’s poorly packaged, without a logo or anything else to show that it’s from a quality and trustworthy company, it will be harder to sell. How a product is packaged is extremely important to today’s consumer.
- Make your company more recognisable – Many of your customers and potential customers will pay more attention to a visual advertisement than one full of text, a picture paints a thousand words as the saying goes. With many of us only having the time to glance at things during the hustle and bustle of the day, it’s important that you create something that can catch the eyes of your audience. A logo that is well known will always get attention.
- Return on investment – The more people that see your logo, the easier it will become for them to associate it with trust, good products, and reliability. This means that they will take the time to view anything that has your logo on it. Investing in a logo and using it to build a strong brand will encourage customers to engage with your company and purchase your products, if you have the right logo you should gain a healthy return on your investment quite quickly.
- Attract the right customers – A great designer will consider the colour, visual elements, and typography of your logo. The right kind of logo will attract the right kind of audience and result in more sales. How a logo is designed should be specific to the kind of industry you’re in and catch the eye of the type of customers you want to attract.
It’s a good idea to invest in a professional designer who will get to know your business and your products and then take all of this into consideration when creating a logo that can be used for anything and everything. Something that will accurately reflect your company and get it noticed. Some businesses have attempted to create their own logos using clip art or generic images – this will get you nowhere. If you’re going to use visuals that will last you through the years, they have to be created professionally by someone who knows what they’re doing.
