So many aspects of church life determine how you impact the people in your community. Your focus is of course to assist as many individuals as possible. Did you ever consider that your marketing elements such as your logo play integral roles in that process? After all, it’s how people notice you and get attracted to your premises to listen to your message.
To design an effective church logo takes some insight. Where do you begin to ensure it’s not simply another image in town that people ignore? If you’re establishing a new ministry or you realize your church’s ‘look’ needs some updating, use the religious logo creator tools for inspiration for your logo. When you invest enough time and effort into it, it could become key in bringing about transformation in your area.
Start with what others are doing
The goal with looking at other Christian institutions’ logos is not to copy them. It’s a dynamic first source of inspiration because it can make you a bit more open minded about your logo options. Scroll through churches’ and other Christian organizations’ logos and you’ll quickly see that it’s not necessary to stick to traditional elements such as the cross, a dove or any other emblem closely related to the Trinity.
Designers get creative with modern elements—such as modern typography—combined with imagery representing a church’s specific vision. The results are impactful because the logos end up being timeless and unique.
You can browse online, visit church websites, look at logo design platforms or read a few blogs to find this inspiration.
Write Down Your Story
Now it’s time to turn to yourself for inspiration. Write out your church’s history and major milestones so far, even if you’ve just started out. Those milestones are unique to your ministry and will always form the foundation of your establishment. Reading through that story could spark an idea of an object or emblem that is synonymous to your church’s unique calling. When you use it as part of your logo it will always be relevant to your church.
Consider Your Church’s Colors, Words, Emotions and Vision
In a business context, what you want to portray to your audience is seen as your ‘brand’. The concept still applies when it comes to a church. A church’s brand can relate to:
List relevant ideas in each of these categories. Use this as a starting point to find imagery and words that fit your church brand. When you make a final decision about your logo, come back to this list and ensure your design still aligns with what the church brand stands for.
Get Ideas from Your Team
Logo design should not be done in isolation. When different people get together, share ideas and spark more ideas in each other, you end up with an original, well-formed plan.
Ask team members or prayer partners to give their input during a brainstorming session. You may find people are apprehensive to share their thoughts, fearing that their ideas may not be good enough. The following works best:
This discussion is sure to spark more ideas, leaving you with more than enough inspiration to compile a logo.
Ask the Audience
Don’t limit your creativity by avoiding outside input. Ask members of the congregation what they find unique about your church. You can even do a poll in your local community and find out what they respond to in church logos. This will help you identify which elements will be most effective and eye-catching to include.
Inspiration from Outside
If at any point you run out of ideas or you simply can’t find that one ‘thing’ that will make your logo work, learn from the masters. Over the centuries the greatest artists in the world often did paintings inspired by the Christian faith. View some of them in an art gallery or browse online. Perhaps the beauty of those art works helps you discover the background of your logo or the main element you’ve been missing.
The right sources of inspiration will have you off to a good start in designing a Christian logo and brand that draws attention. It can even start communicating your all-important message.

Your logo design is one of the most important parts of your business. It communicates who you are to your target audience so that they’re more likely to turn to you whenever they need what you’re selling. But before you can create a stellar logo, you need to decide on a business name that can be incorporated into an impactful design.
To help you out, we’ve listed five rules that you should follow when deciding on your business name. If you follow these rules, your business name and logo will stand out from the crowd.
Keep It SimpleIf you look at a list of the most popular brands, you’ll notice that most of their brand names only consist of one word. One of the reasons why single word brand names are so successful is because they’re easy to remember. Another reason is that it allows you to create more effective logo designs. A simpler word to work with means the designer can be more creative.
This doesn’t mean you have to pick a one-word business name. Even two words are still effective. As long as it’s easy to spell, your target market will be more likely to remember you.
Know Your Audience
When deciding on your business name, you have to take your audience into account. After all, your logo should characterize your business name in a way that appeals to the people who are most likely to buy your product. For example, if you are an art gallery owner or photography studio, then it would be wise to get a unique calligraphy logo design and a name to match with it.
Using words that will attract a certain group of people will cause them to be more intrigued by your business. This will eventually lead them to your website and merchandise.
Establish Your IdentityYour business name needs to capture your company’s identity. If the business name embodies the values that you’re trying to represent, these values will show in your logo design. For example, if you sell beauty products, a feminine business name will reflect feminine ideals more effectively in the logo. Also consider if your name will suit certain colors, as color makes up 80% of brand recognition.
Make It Unique & CatchyOnce you’ve decided on a business name, the last thing you want is to have the same company name as someone else. This will result in customers associating your identity with an existing business. Doing a simple Google search can show you what names are already used by others. To make it permanent, get it registered for trademark and copyrights.
If your business name is unique and catchy, it will also be more memorable. Plus, you’ll be able to create exciting logos that stand out from existing ones.

Consider the FutureAsk yourself, is what you’re selling now, the only product you’re going to sell in future? Selecting a business name that is limited to what you sell might make it difficult to branch out at a later stage.
Picking a more open-ended business name means that as our business grows, it will be easier to incorporate different branches. This also means you can avoid depicting a particular product in your logo, so your business is free to expand in any direction.
Final ThoughtsYour business name and your logo are the foundation of your brand identity. By selecting the right ones in the beginning, you’ll attract more customers and you’ll be able to grow your business more effectively.
At the end of the day, deciding on one will determine the other. So, start: what image are you trying to portray?

What is digital marketing?
Simply put, really Dallas digital marketing is just marketing using digital tools and platforms.
What is marketing?
Marketing is communicating and sharing value to your customers. Check out this post on the 4 pillars to advertising. Digital marketing is therefore communicating your value story or proposition to your audience (potential customers) using digital methods (online and mobile).
Traditional VS Digital Marketing
Traditional marketing uses distribution tools and methods like TV, radio, newspaper, magazine, sign holders (that kid on the corner dancing to the sound of his iPod spinning the signage), billboards, direct mail, and flyers. Digital marketing uses distribution tools like search engine marketing (Google), search engine optimization (SEO), social media (Facebook), display marketing (online billboards) content marketing (blogs), press releases, articles, video (Youtube) email marketing, and online pay per clicks advertising.
Really the discussion between traditional marketing and digital marketing, is really about the tools or systems of delivery more than the strategy behind them. Specifically, you’re talking about exactly which form of media you’re going to use to communicate your value proposition message; a traditional one, or a digital one.
I truly believe that the marketers need to be where ever their customers are. This creates the challenge because people today (2019) consumer content and information everywhere. They watch TV when and where they want (emerging tv streaming services), they read magazines (still a good way to past time in doctors office), the search Google to gather information 24/7, they become an educated buyer by watching infomercials on Youtube, they never ignore the Groupon coupon the dashes in their email inbox.... the list goes on and on.

Whether you are in a major city like Dallas, Texas our a small community like Lancaster Texas SEO is always. SEO is a process that takes time. Anytime you get a website you want to get your seo started right away. In big cities there are of course greater populations which equal more competition. With internet technology you are not competing with business but pages. Notice in the screen shot below that when I search for "roofing contractors Dallas" on Google they display over 1.1 million pages of results not including the Google Ads.
According to yellow pages for Dallas there are approximately 735 local roofers located in Dallas, which most businesses would view as local competition. Consider that for every page online is competition. Google's search engine result page displays only 10 organic (below the ads and map) website links per page then it goes to page two and so on.
So you can see if you were a Dallas roofer for example there is plenty of pages to compete with.
Typically when you get your new website you should integrate your social media platform with the web property. Create some articles and post on these platforms to generate buzz around your business and demonstrate your self as an authority. Once the conversation has began concerning your content the internet will begin to share your content, and link back to you. This process typically takes a long time unless your instantly go viral (if you are lucky).
Because going viral is not practical for most business owners, hiring a Dallas SEO as soon as possible is one of the smartest things that you can do to help your business to begin connecting with your customers online. Remember; If they can't find you, you don't exist.
