Why a Good Logo Design is the Holy Grail for Your Small Business?

brand identity

They say that a logo design is much more than what meets the eye and that in fact is true. We see logos every day and cannot exaggerate their importance to the extent of extremity. From a consumer point of view, we’re so much used to logos that we can’t recognize a brand without a visual representation of it.

A logo is a trademark or the symbol of recognition for any business or brand. While many businesses are good at making the impact with their logos, most aren’t that lucky or fortunate enough. A business owner must recognize that a logo is an ultimate source for developing better consumer grounds as it gives them a competitive edge in the market.

It might sound too good to be true, but there are many factors that revolve around a logo. Your logo isn’t there to surprise the art aficionados out there, it’s there to improve your marketing strategy and enhance your chances to appeal to your customers. You have to pour your business ideologies into the logo that is going to take the determined shape. Your professionalism just steps out from behind the curtains.

Understanding Changing Customer Needs Through Analytics

Customer Needs Through Analytics

Analytics, Customer Analytics, Big Data, Business Intelligence – we come across these terms often, don’t we? Well, all of them are synonyms of each other (you might already know this).

Analytics – as the name suggests – are tools that convey the ‘feelings’ of a customer (prospective or existing) to business owner(s) and act as a mentor while they make strategic decisions.

Now, customer behaviour could be literally anything – likes, dislikes, brand awareness, affinity for a specific product, and what not! Let me give you my own example. Recently, I was looking for a flight to my hometown. And I have the habit of checking out the offers first, then the fares. Unfortunately, there were none. So, I closed the site. And guess what! Within 5 minutes I got an offer of flat 20% OFF on airfare, from the same site.

This was a simple one; there are detailed case-studies available too.

The point is that small and big marketers alike take customer loyalty very seriously and go out of their way to cash in on it. Furthermore, retail analytics has picked up the pace and will prove to be a game-changer for the retail sector in the near future.

How to Get Your Inbound Marketing On Point?

Inbound Marketing

Inbound marketing is the art of attracting customers through alternative methods, such as great content or impeccable branding. It is a proven way of generating leads and sales, and often times, it can be less expensive than traditional marketing techniques.

When compared to outbound marketing, it is the less aggressive approach. It is all about earning a customer’s trust and attention, not buying it. Meaning that you can gain new leads and loyalty in a much more organic way. In today’s world where the Millennial and Gen Z crowd has become desensitized to advertising, finding new measures to capture your target audience is the key.  

But getting your inbound marketing right takes research, insight and a good understanding of your customer – as well as a deep knowledge of the market you’re in. Creating useful and compelling content is at the heart of it all, and companies will need to redirect investment and focus on making their brand shine if they want to stand out against the competition.  

Here is a guide on how to nail your inbound marketing campaigns.

Customer Experience Lessons to Learn from Amazon and Starbucks

Customer Experience

As far as ubiquitous household names go, there’s no denying that Amazon and Starbucks rank near the top of the list.

I mean, the number of active individual Amazon accounts is almost equal to the population of the United States. Small wonder, then, that the ecommerce giant is expected to hold a whopping 50% of the market share for the online shopping industry by 2021.

As for Starbucks, the coffee giant currently holds almost 40% of the market share for US coffee chains. And, as you’re probably well aware, you pretty much can’t go anywhere without being within walking distance of a Starbucks storefront or kiosk.

(Case in point, I’m writing this from a Starbucks right now…and there are two others within half a mile of my current location.)

But the point of this article isn’t to drone on about how successful Amazon and Starbucks are as companies; you already know this.

What we’re going to discuss is why and how the two colossi of their respective industries have come to be so dominant.
