It’s amazingly simple to create a new blog of your own. All it takes is a domain name, a hosting account, and a simple WordPress install. However, the content and immediate impression that your blog gives off are what’s going to count.
Your content will go a long way, but right when people get to your site, you will only have a couple seconds to convince them to stay.
A great way to do this is through the use of a custom WordPress theme and having a well-branded name and logo for your site.
Back when I first started creating websites and blogs it was quite expensive to have a logo created. Now you can get great logos designed at a much lower price through services like LogoNerds and Fiverr. The costs for getting a custom logo created for your site are now in the $5-$50 range instead of having to spend hundreds.
I actually did a full case study on this at BloggingTips.com when I was creating a new logo for a pet food site I was working on. The process is quite simple and you can keep working with design companies until they create exactly what you are looking for.
The difference between having a blog with a boring default template and seeing the site name in a full-color logo versus generic text is huge. Make a good first impression on your audience and they will be that much more likely not only to stay on your blog for a longer period of time, but it will also make them want to come back and leave a branded image in their minds as well.
Does Your Blog Need a Logo Repair or Redesign?
In addition to creating a logo for your online brand, blog, or business, are you also considering the options for a new logo design or a facelift? Logo design repair is something many online design agencies offer, but not something many brands know about. You can see a few examples below of what previous and new designs look like.
When it comes to the look and feel of your brand online, it’s not just about the quality of your logo, it’s also about how it looks on your site, social media, and when viewed through different social platforms.
