Merriam-Webster’s definition of branding as: “A mark that is burned into the skin of an animal (such as a horse) to show who owns the animal.” From a marketing standpoint in the Windsor CT area this is exactly what you want to accomplish; your name or logo to stand out and be easily remembered by your customer (or as the definition puts it… “Burned” into the mind of your customer so they’ll remember you.)
Here are some useful tips when considering branding your business in the Windsor CT area.
Have a Professional Design Your Logo!
At G-FORCE Signs & Graphics serving the Windsor CT and surrounding areas we found that many new small business owners start out with a logo using Microsoft Word or they had a friend put a couple of fonts together. While this does technically pacify the need for a logo, it can actually hinder your success. Marketing specialists such as G-FORCE Signs & Graphics have worked within the advertising field seeing what works best when “branding” your logo or name to the Windsor CT area.
To assist in properly branding your logo… follow these basic ideals:
Legibility – It is extremely important that your Windsor CT customer can read your logo. At a glance they need to be able understand what the logo represents or says.
Uniqueness – The lettering and/or graphics need to be unique. Not only for legal purposes but for your business in the Windsor CT area to look like you cared enough to create something different. A logo says a lot about a company and in some cases the only time they see a representation of your company is when they see your logo.
Versatile – Complicated colors and shading look great on websites… but often don’t embroider well. You want a logo that is versatile enough that changing the colors (due to varying backgrounds from ad to ad or various placement) will not detract from the branded look.
Identifiable – If possible, your logo needs to represent what you do or who you are. For example: if you are a carpet cleaning company and use a pelican as part of your logo, what does the pelican represent? Unless you are “Pelican Carpet Cleaners”; it doesn’t make sense. Your logo will be easier to remember if the logo helps identify your company.
