Here is a quick breakdown of what you'll need, brand design wise, as a new business. Your new business' brand needs to have a:
1. Compelling Name
This may come as a "no-brainer" but any business needs a memorable name within two seconds of being seen. A great name comes from a great concept or your namesake with a specificer to follow such as Danette Montoya Psychotherapy.
2. A Striking Logo
Whether you're a new entrepreneur or an established business, a polished logo will give potential customers a positive first impression. Make sure your logo is not too detailed when viewing as a quarter size, and if it is consider creating alternate logos like we did at Creative Compass.
3. A Website that Works for You!
Make sure your website can collect leads by having a custom contact form wi
th automated responses, a newsletter subscription option, able to take online bookings, integrated marketing features, and ecommerce if that's applicable to your business. Also, make sure that your website is mobile responsive!
4. Matching Marketing Materials
