If you are as old as me, you might actually recall that your first foray into computer aided design was Microsoft paint. We’ve come a long way since then and one of the thing I love about blogging is seeing the way other bloggers have embraced their passion for design and used it in their websites. If you are looking to get your branding on point for a small business or blog, monogrammaker.com is a great free resource to help you to design your own personalised monogram. It’s easy to use and you don’t have to be professional or even that in to design. But what are the benefits of designing a monogram?
It helps you to build your “brand”
Building a brand is seriously hard work on a limited budget. When we think of brand logos we instantly recognise like Coca Cola or Disney, these are companies that have spent millions on branding and design. But you don’t need to spend that much money to get a head start. Once you have made your free monogram you can start to use it on your website and all of your social media channels to ensure that customers get to know your brand.
It looks more professional
Imagine if you were about to buy from a company that had a website and social media channels but no logo. It would be slightly off-putting wouldn’t it? Monogram’s are essential even to the smallest companies or websites to give your customers the impression that you are serious. You can use monogram maker to make lots of different sized monograms to use on your social media channels and website. Choosing a monogram rather than a standard logo means you can use the letters of your company name which leads people to think of the company name when they see the monogram. This is especially true for bloggers. Monograms are much better than logos for bloggers because you can use the important letters in your blog name.
You don’t just have to use monograms for business/blogging
Professional-looking monograms are not something that can only be used for business or website design. There are loads of reasons to utilise a free monogram maker. One of the more common ones is for a wedding. If you are doing some of the design yourself but don’t know where to start, a monogram is a great idea as you can use yours and your partners name. A free monogram maker will take a lot of hassle and cost out of wedding planning and you could use the money for more booze!
Monograms are also a great way of doing a bit of branding for a specific event. If your company runs a lot of events the chances are that your logo is already used a lot, but a monogram can be created to incorporate the letters of the name of the event or the companies that are collaborating on it.
