Can Your Logo Cost You Business?
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 RangelI'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.

Most businesses almost hide what they want people to do on their site. If you knew someone was on your site for 1 minute and 38 seconds would you have your site designed differently? (By the way, that is the averages I typically see when diving into google analytics). There is an art to making a quality design paired up with a call to action. Too cheesy and you might look cheap, too discreet and…Read More
I got to hear Brad Parscale (another Shawnee heights grad #respect) at an event say the number one way to reach prospects is either through texting or with email drips. And he said that in 2019 as the campaign manager for President Trump. Think about that, they’ve spent millions of dollars in advertising online not just for brand awareness but ultimately to get someone’s email address because they know the value of having your email…Read More
