Branding and logos are one of the best moves you can make when taking your photography business to a whole new level. People will recognize your cards, your packaging, and most importantly those watermarked images you let your clients use on social networking sites.
Once you have your logo set in stone, newbie client sees your watermark on her friend from highschool's images and thinks - hey those are cool. Then she sees them on her former co-workers wedding images and says - wow those are really good. While snooping on her ex-bff's page on Facebook there's the images you took of ex-friend's newborn and she thinks this photographer is everywhere. Then the ultimate find - you've shot her ex-boyfriend and his new fiance's engagement photos! Not to be out done she hits google, Facebook, Myspace and anywhere she can think of to find this studio everyone knows about but her. You are the hidden gem - FINALLY she finds your site - she KNOWS it's you because of the logo and bam you are now photographing HER engagements, wedding, future maternity, newborn and family portraits!
Ok, ok so maybe it doesn't happen QUITE like that or maybe it does - that's how I stay so busy. ;)
So now you're hooked you NEED a logo and with that all new marketing material, blog and now you need stickers, packaging and your site to all match. WHERE do you start? You could spend hours, days and weeks creating the perfect image and then find out the brushes you used can't be used for branding OR you can make it easy on yourself and tell CYS by SJ what you're leaning towards and fill out her questionaire and she'll make you the perfect new you. ;)
