Logo Creation Golden Rules

Don't Steal!

It is 100% illegal to just find an image and start using it as your logo. Please don’t do it!

Be Mindful of Imitators

If you create a logo using cheap software, they only have so many variations for your industry.

Simply Minimal Rule

Your logo should be simple and clean. It should be easy to read and make out any graphics.

Be Unique

Your brand is one-of-a-kind. Choose a logo that reflects the unique experience you provide.

Website Golden Rules

Hold Your Own

Get your login info for your site, all linked accounts and your hosting provider. You paid for it!

Don't Let It Expire

Keep your domain name and website hosting active. Watch those emails from your hosting provider.

Check On It

Once in a while, visit your site to make sure that everything looks right & there are no errors. It happens.

Email List Power

Build your email list and then use it. Try MailChimp to get started. Build, create emails & send them.

Social Media Golden Rules

Be About Your Business

Create and use your brand page on FB. Then create an IG business account and connect the two.

CTA is Not Optional

If you mention your product, service or event (or something related), include a call to action with a link.

Hash It Up on IG

Use hashtags on every IG post. Include custom ones for your brand & related frequently used ones.

Schedule Time To Schedule

Use the feature included on FB business pages and try Buffer for IG posts. Repeat weekly.
