Can Your Logo Cost You Business?

Marcus

Another Monday Morning Website Tip by Marcus Rangel

Have you ever pulled up your website and looked at your logo and asked yourself this question, does my logo look a little “tired.”

Having a “tired” logo can actually cost you business because if you think of how people scan your website it’s from left to right (or on a phone top to bottom), and what’s at the top of every website? Your logo. So if your logo doesn’t appease the eye in those first few seconds people visit your site, it can be costing you business.

Here’s what I mean by tired, a logo that if you looked at it just for a few seconds doesn’t seem like it is fresh.

Here’s the good news.

I would say 99% of logos have a great idea of where they came from, it may just need a simple refresh. A god example of this is what we did for Engroff Catering when we relaunched their website, it came with a modern twist to their former logo.

I’m also going to say that it’s not easy for everyone transitioning from an earlier logo for everyone, but when you make the switch, it’s like a fresh haircut 🙂

Take a look below to see what I mean.

How do you know if you need a new logo?

I would challenge you to pull up your website, take a glance at it for 3 seconds and ask yourself the question, “does my logo look tired.”

About Marcus Rangel

I've been working with small businesses owners to craft not only beautiful custom websites, but clear, clever and concise messages to reach their prospects since 2005.

I officially hung up my "corporate cleats" to be an entrepreneur and small business owner in the summer of 2020. IMC, which started as a side hustle early in the mornings before the sun was even up in 2017, is what led me down this path as a business owner myself. I focus on helping other business owners continually stay in front of people & prospects with digital marketing, create websites that get leads with great engagement, and produce video content that are meant for the digital era we're in.

When I'm not creating, you can find me hanging out with my incredible family on our front lawn or on my OneWheel around the big city of Owasso, OK.

Personal Emails – Why they will always matter

Isn’t email marketing great?  You get to craft one message that goes to all of your client or prospects in one or two clicks. Have you set aside a day at least once a month to email your hitters or top clients directly?  One of the key things I’m doing is being proactive with how I run IMC. Before I shot out the live chat feature to my email list, as my clients know, I sent them all a personal email on how I thought it would benefit them directly.  Did that take more time, you bet it did and it was so worth it! Now, think about how many responses you would get by blasting out an email even if it’s a great feature…

Free live chat on website

This week let’s get you a win on your website to kick off your Monday. This won’t cost you anything, it’s literally free and if you have someone on your staff who can field the messages coming in, this is a no brainer to get better engagement on your site. It’s called Drift, and it’s awesome! It’s the little popup in the corner that alerts guests to your site that you have a live person there to answer their questions. It shows their picture, the option to have a personalized message (so it sounds like them), and looks really slick. Did I mention it’s FREE? There are paid versions of their program, (read about it here), but I’ve found that the free version works great!…
