So many business will start out with a homemade publisher or word brochure or flyer that will be the introduction to their business. Please remember that first impressions are important. Branding your company from day one is important. Launch your company with a professionally designed logo and marketing materials that make sense to your business. Have something in your hands to present a potential client that you can be proud of. You know your business and you know how good your company is, let the branding give that first impression and hopefully get their business. A good presentation of your company willl inspire confidence in your potiental client. As your client base grows, so does your referral base.
Recommended startup materials...
- Logo Designed to represent your company
- Business Cards (high quality)
- Brochure or Flyer (tri-fold on high quality material)
- Website (I do recommend a website to all my clients, but at this stage you just need a URL name, I cover this in more detail on the "Website Page" of this website.
What's the next step?
Now you need clients. You have the proper materials to present your company, now you need to find those people who will become your clients and thus refer you to others. I talk more about this in detail on the "Marketing Page" of this website.
I don't know if this makes sense for MY business...
Yup, you might be right. If you are starting a restaurant, then you would need a different "startup recommendation". Perhaps you are with Pampered Chef, Partylite, Lia Sophia, Mary Kay or another MLM type of business. Your "startup recommendation" would be very different. But I do find for the majority of startup companies, that my recommendation does hold true.
Do I really need a Logo?
That is a good question. In most cases, YES. You are a business, you need to brand your business. However, there are different levels of logoing your company. Your budget is important and you might not need a $400 logo. In fact, most of the logos we do are between $150 to $400 tops. It might be that a nice font is enough for your company. All these questions will be answered when we connect with you to learn more about you and your business.

Do you have a company that is established, but you want to give it a more updated look? Perhaps you are now offering more or have made a big change and your company and now need to show that. We can help! To be honest, rebranding is a strong word. We really wouldn't do that with an established company. There are other ways to freshen up your branding. If you have a logo that the community already knows, we can take that logo and give it a more "updated" feel. Your clients will notice the change, but still know it is you. The first step in this process is to set up a meeting. We need to really know why you are wanting to change so that we can make that happen as smoothly as possible. Don't worry, we are not "nosey" we just would like to understand better the thoughts behind it and see your "new vision" so that we can help bring that to life for you.
