Are You Designing Your Own Logo?

So many people today are creating their own logos for their businesses.

When you are designing your logo yourself, did you ask your mom what she thinks?

Did she say, “Well honey I love it but I think it should have some green in it because that's my favorite color.”

Then did you go and ask your teenage daughter if she liked it? Her answer may have been “ I think it’s too lame, I would add a bitmoji.”

Then did you ask your husband what he thought?  What was his answer? “It looks good but maybe I would add an illustration to it.”

I know your favorite color is purple and you love unicorns, but a logo must represent your business. Reverse your role. Imagine you are the client...what are you looking for if you were shopping for this product?  Keep your family out of it. Ask your target market. Ask your ideal client what he/she thinks.

Why You Need Social Media

Uncategorized Mar 12, 2019

The importance of Social Media in business cannot be overstated. Many businesses shy away from social media. ‘There’s no time’ ‘My customers aren’t on social media’ ‘I can’t write and don’t know what to post’ are all common reasons.

But social media doesn’t have to be telling the world every time you get a cup of coffee or that you are reading a paper. Social media is a platform to connect with your customers and clients. It’s a way to share information, receive feedback, build a relationship and have fun with individuals who are actively seeking to learn more about your business.

Social media gives you the opportunity to reach...

You need a Personal Page in order to have or create a Business Page.
