International Group (NASDAQ:EIGI), a leading cloud-based platform
solutions provider helping small and medium-sized businesses succeed
online, today released findings from a survey of 491 Very Small Business
(VSB) subscribers within the total Endurance subscriber base. Endurance
defines VSBs to be small businesses employing five or fewer employees.
The survey explored the use of logos among very small businesses and how
often they design and refresh their logos.
The results revealed that very small businesses may be struggling to
design impactful logos given their limited budgets. The survey found
15% of VSBs have no logo at all
56% of VSBs designed their own logo
26% of respondents admitted they are ‘very’ or ‘somewhat’ likely to
change their logo within the next six months
“A standout logo and impressive web presence are important parts of
building a brand even at the very early stages of building a business,”
said Michael Kesselman, EVP, Innovation and Strategy at Endurance. “We
believe every business should be able to affordably and easily create a
branded presence. In the past, companies might have thought they had to
spend a lot on branding and logo design, which meant that they would
have been hesitant to rebrand or even refresh their brand. Our MOJO
Marketplace tools help to deliver professional logos and graphics at any
Marketplace, an Endurance brand delivering themes, plugins and
professional services, offers a variety of logos and graphics – aimed at
getting affordable branding options into the hands of small business
owners. From logo design to business cards and font sets, graphics are
easily downloadable, customizable and now, available to the majority of
Endurance brands. MOJO Marketplace recently integrated with the
Endurance brands iPage,
– making it easier for the small business owner to refresh their brand,
install add-ons, and purchase themes.
“When thinking about logo design, it’s best to keep it simple,” said
Kesselman. “Small business owners should choose a design that has
staying power, but it’s important to be open to small iterations over
time. Brands may need to refresh their logo as the company evolves,
expands, and takes on new audiences – just don’t lose sight of what
makes your brand recognizable – whether it’s a signature color or
Tips for refreshing a logo:
Ask your audience – Social media makes it easy to
communicate directly with customers. Engage them in the process by
asking for input and even judging potential designs.
Keep it simple – A complete brand overhaul may alienate
customers, so less is more when it comes to a refresh. Focus on one or
two elements and make subtle changes.
Communicate the change – to avoid confusion, the refresh should
be consistent at every touch point for customers. Ensure a seamless
experience by communicating the change with employees and updating
