How to Know if You Need a New Logo

So, you have a business, and you have customers; however, you feel as though things have plateaued. You’re not moving forward, with sales, generating new leads, or increasing website traffic, and you are not sure what is the cause of it. One way to instantly give your company a fresh look and a facelift is a new logo. A new logo says that you are changing things up and your company is growing. It’s a subtle way to let your customers and the public, in general, know that you are making improvements in the company.

Companies such as Wendy’s, Uber, Mac Donald’s, and MasterCard have successfully updated their logos without changing ownership.

Something so simple as an updated logo to (you don’t even need to change it) refresh everything and make your business look like a whole new company, while still remaining the same.
 

Three ways to know if you need a new logo design:

One: If you see a decline in sales, and notice that you are not generating new leads, then it’s time to try something new. Nothing says, “We are updating things around here!” as a new logo design does. It may be just the thing that you need to grab some new interest.

Two: If you are changing your company’s colors (think Walmart moving from blue and gray to tan)it may be time to update your logo as well. If your brand is updating, you may want to update the logo at the same time.

Three: Last but not least, why not? Why not create a new logo design for your business and not let things get stale, and if you’ve had your logo for some time and you feel that your company is in a slump, you may want to think about re-branding, and that would include a new logo design. If you believe that things need shaking up, then a new and improved logo is a great way to do that.

Updating your logo should never be off the table. Keep in mind, maybe you have a good thing that is working (think Apple), and your company is seeing incredible expiation and growth. In that case, don’t worry about updating your logo. However, if you feel that you need to give your business a new look, an updated logo is the perfect way to do that.  And in that case, get out there and find the perfect graphic designer to bring your new logo to life!
