1 – Pick a name that’s easy to remember and easy to spell.
2 – Consider a name with a deeper meaning or story behind it.
3 – Pick a good tagline that goes with your name and you can integrate into your content and ads.
4 – Make sure the domain and socia profiles are available. If not, slightly add to name in a creative way to make it unique. Make sure no other businesses in your space have the same name.
5 – Look for logo inspiration. I like to use logopond.com to get ideas. You can search logos by keyword, industry, color, etc. Pick out 4 or 5 you really like.
6 – Design your logo based on the logos you like and your preferred colors. Hire a designer if you are not able to design the logo yourself.
7 – Put together your brand guidelines. Once the logo is finalized, pick your fonts, decide how your logo should look on a light background vs dark background, design your social media avatar, icons, brand voice, etc. The designer that designed your logo can also help with this.
8 – Trademark your name to protect your brand.
9 – Design website, social media, email campaigns, ad concepts, videos, swag, signage, etc. based on the killer brand you selected.
