If you're just starting in business and you just finished creating your logo design, you'd probably be wondering about the next steps to take with your new business logo. There are many, actually, and all of them require you to do one thing: expose your logo to the maximum.
What good will your new logo design be if you keep it under lock and key? Whether your logo is fantastic or not is a debatable issue and is simply beside the point. The whole point is to put out your logo the soonest that you can, to make it as visible to the public as possible, and expose it as frequently as you can. Why?
First of all, repetitive exposure aids in recognition and recall. Two key words are essential here: repetition and exposure. The more frequently your audience sees your business logo, the more ingrained the image will be in people's memory. The repetitive exposure, whether people actively pay attention to the logo or not, engraves the image deep into their subconscious. The same phenomenon is at work with that stranger you frequently bump into (but not talk to). The next time you seem her or him somewhere else, you should be able to recognize the person. You would even probably say hi or make small talk.
With your company logo, the goal you're after is instant recognition. That is, people will instantly recognize and remember your company whenever they see your company logo.
So, paste your logo all over town and wherever you can. Make sure it appears on television. Let it be seen by motorists and pedestrians on your company-sponsored billboards and giant signage. Print it on your giveaway items. Print it on customized shirts or on company uniform. Your budget's your limit. On second thought, there are millions of creative ways in which you can expose your logo without spending much.
Don't forget your office stationery, too. Make sure your business logo is on every business card, letterhead, invoice, job order, etc. that you use for transactions. This way, you are not only providing an air of officiality to those transactions but also exhibiting your company symbol.
Creating a fantastic logo design for your business is just a part of the bigger story. It's an important part. Another important part is the maximum exposure of your logo to your public. These two are very crucial to establishing your business identity, creating good will among your target audience, and promoting your company name or brand.
