You are on this page because you might want to make a difference with your craft business… but wait, with a LOGO?
Yes, you read that right! Some crafters think that a logo is not important —that it’s something only for big companies or high-capital corporations. But the importance of a logo for a small business can’t be underestimated.
Logos are the main symbol of a business’ overall brand identity. The logo appears on your handicraft’s photos, website, business cards, craft show booth and advertising. For that reason, a well-designed logo can contribute to business success, while a substandard logo can imply amateurishness and turn off potential customers.
It also provides a face for your company that helps consumers to remember you.
Okay… tell me what did you think upon seeing this logo of Etsy?
Just merely looking at this image will have caused a chain reaction of thoughts in your head. You can’t help that reaction of thoughts from occurring which result in physical emotions being felt. Once an association is made with something and reinforced over time with other activities it is very hard to shake.
Some people who view this logo may instantly think about a talented crafters’ hub, excitement about online shopping or feel trust in this seller because there is an association with a large trusted online ecommerce.
What is important though, is a simple image made you feel something and that is the beauty of a logo.
In addition, if you have a logo, you will have an advantage because a logo conveys a feeling of trust… and trust is a big reason why customers initiate a relationship with your company.
