LOGOS FOR LESS THAN $25 • How to use pre-made graphics to create your own logo
You are growing an online presence and have lots of questions.
One of your common questions is:
Do I need a custom designed logo to be seen as a professional?
Here is the secret that I know and share with my clients.
And it sounds pretty ridiculous coming from a graphic and website designer.
Most people’s mouths drop a little when then hear it from me…
YOU DON’T NEED TO HAVE A CUSTOM LOGO NOR DO
YOU NEED AND A COMPLICATED AND AN OVERLY DESIGNED WEBSITE TO BE SEEN AS A PROFESSIONAL TO YOUR WEBSITE VISITORS.
Actually the opposite happens. When we are first starting out, we want pretty and styled and using 3 different scripty fonts can be so tempting. We want to be memorable and unique.
But there is a fine art to finding the right spot of memorable and designer and “crafty” looking.
And as long as your logo is easy to read and stands out no one is going to think you less of a professional.
There is so much graphic art that you can buy, and free design apps that you can use to create a professional logo yourself. If you are still struggling a little to be raking in the clients and customers I highly recommend doing this and moving on the the stuff that is going to actually move the needle in your business first.
What you need to make sure of is that your logo photo files are large, clear and well centered and balanced.
