A Nice Logo Can Hurt Your Business

a nice logo can hurt your business

When you have a business, what really kick-starts your success is a logo, right? Wrong.

We are all buyers and we have all experienced consumer letdown. (You know, the post purchase shock that leaves you feeling ripped off because you were expecting so much more.) Unfortunately, it is easier than ever to let your buyers down today.

Expectations today are higher than ever due to social trends. Having a great logo is false advertising if the rest of the experience doesn’t follow through.


How can a logo hurt a business?

Your visual brand connects to people on an emotional level. Which is great, because all purchases are made through emotional decision making. A company’s logo and visual identity paints a picture of the type of business they are, and the experience one can expect when interacting with that company. If the experience does not match the image, then the consumer letdown is greater.


Provide what you promise

Delivering upon a consumer’s expectation is at the root of success. So, if you plan to have a nice logo, you better plan to have a strategic brand plan that lives up to the promise your logo is making. If you are in the market for creating a logo any time soon, (or perhaps a logo update), define your brand first!
