Tip Tuesday marketing tips by PRowl Communications

Only 7 Seconds for a First Impression

It doesn't matter what your business is - you are using graphic design to some extent. If you're selling cars, refrigerators, consulting services or even one of those illusive widgets, there is graphic design involved.

It might be in the form of your logo, forms, brochures, business cards, facebook cover images, or post images. It may be the cover of your video, ebook or even your proposals or vehicle wraps and signs.  Yup, it's all graphic design, which is not to be confused with branding.. That's a topic for another day, although graphic design plays a major role in your branding.

make a good impression the first timeMom always said 'Make A Good Impression The First Time', it might be the only chance you get!

The same holds true for your business. Often, the first impression is a business card, or maybe a post on facebook today.  Be sure what your potential customers are seeing truly represents you, your brand and your product.  The easiest way to do this is through graphic design -- which is more than a pretty picture.

Unless your selling to a 2-year-old, you do not want a logo that looks like your 2-year-old drew it.  (And, if you are selling to a 2 year old, it's really their parents you are selling to - just saying!)

If done well that pretty picture will instill a sense of urgency, develop the want and the need for your product and service. And don’t forget the call to action. Content is a key part of your designs. Give it some thought.

When designing your next marketing piece, think of the message as if you were your customer.

  • What problem is your product or service solving?
  • How does it benefit your customer?
  • How does it make life easier, more fun, productive…..
  • And the list goes on and on.

A few other key points when it comes to graphic design.

  • Be professional 
  • Consider colour, images, text,
  • Design for your intended audience
  • Stay consistent with your brand
  • Use photos where possible
  • Learn the difference between web quality and print quality.
