When you’re starting a business or side hustle, it’s important to put a visual stamp on what you’re doing to boost your marketing reach, stand out from the competition, and establish trust and credibility with your target audience.
Designing a logo can be a complex task, but luckily there are more options than ever to get the job done quickly, and at a cost you’re comfortable with.
Don't know where to start? Review these five options for making a logo and building your brand:
Cost: People usually choose this option so they have creative control and don’t have to pay someone to design a logo. However, it does cost time and (potentially) the price of software like Sketch or Adobe Illustrator.
Timeframe: Design isn't easy, and it's up to you to decide how much time you want to spend learning design software and creating logo options. The good news? Online tutorials can help!
Quality: Unless you have strong design skills (or help from a designer friend), your logo likely won’t turn out the way you envision. If a professional logo is what you're after, consider another option.
Micro-interactions define marketing success. A site visitor may not make a purchase on day one, but each time they engage with your site, they grow one step closer to a conversion. Incorporating interactive content into your digital presence is a powerful way to create micro-interactions and drive conversions. Quizzes, calculators, assessments and other types of interactive content not only encourage longer periods of engagement, they can also provide your team with invaluable data-driven insights.
Native interactive content on your company’s website gives visitors a reason to return, even if they’re not entirely committed to making a purchase yet. Simple games, surveys, calculators, and other interactive content on your site provide simple, free, and engaging ways for visitors to interact with your company. Interactive content also conveys quality; it shows visitors to your site that you have invested in creating something unique and memorable, which in turn conveys the idea that you’re a serious competitor in your market and worthy of their trust and their business.
Hello Bloominari fans! It’s Amanda and I’m back with some more knowledge bombs from SXSW 2017. Today I’m sharing the best tips straight from video powerhouse Soulpancake and I can’t to get you started on making vertical videos.
SXSW brought together Soulpancake, a Pretty Little Liar, and go90 by Verizon to dish on what’s new in mobile and vertical storytelling. Before jumping into the panel attendees were treated to a pair of new headphones and an intimate previewing of Soulpancake’s new vertical video series.
After the viewing the panel settled in and schooled us on mobile storytelling. Below I share everything you need to know about mobile storytelling.
Each Spring over 30,000 people travel to Austin, Texas for the mega-festival that is South By Southwest. Now in it’s 31st year SXSW is a well-oiled machine and touts a robust programming for interactive, film, music, and gaming. There is something for everyone at SXSW and 2017 was no different.
I’m Amanda, a social video expert and over three articles I’ll be sharing with you what I learned at SXSW. From Marc Jacobs to Kesha to Virtual Reality to gaming and beyond, I’ve got a lot of knowledge to pass around. Get comfy, grab a notebook and let’s get started with adapting storytelling in 2017.

A company’s brand is more than just it’s logo. It is what the company outwardly projects and how the company tells us as potential clients and consumers what they are about, what they value, and what we can expect from their product or service. It is also what sets a company apart from competition and how they tell their audience why they should pick them and not someone else. I believe Jeff Bezos aptly summarized it when he said, “Your brand is what people say about you when you’re not in the room.”
When starting your business from the ground up you may already have any idea of what it is you want as a logo. But you may not be sure on what color or typography you want to use. You may just think it’s not as important when it definitely is.
In a past blog we talked about how different brands have their “special color” and how we react to them. Scientists have proven that color evokes an emotional reaction in us.
Tonight I attended a great marketing meetup hosted by the SoCal Marketing Club in San Diego's new downtown coworking space ROC. The event featured a great talk by OrganikSEO titled "Using Content to Amplify Your SEO Campaign" and it inspired me to write this short post.
Shortly after meeting Julien Brandt, OrganikSEO's founder and speaking about various online marketing topics, he shared with me his company's new "Growing your Busines Online" infographic, which shares the essential message of this blog post in a single image. In fact, this image is being shared here on Bloominari's Blog before Julien had a chance to post it on his own site, so I'm happy he gave me the opportunity to do so :-)
