You Profit Marketing Inc.
After pissing away a fortune of money on "image advertising" and "branding" I discovered direct marketing and I've been on fire ever since. Please take no offense to the "image" part of this as that is what you do.
I've just launched my c-corp in Nevada after running successfully for 3 years in Idaho so I need a new logo etc. I'm going for something that looks a little web 2.0 ish. but not too cutesy.
Primarily my focus is on PPC campaign building for retailers but I also write copy for auto responder sequences and basic sales letters.
Small business contract me to fix their marketing problems on a consolation basis or completely create content and develop a marketing system for them.
Small businesses with 3-15 employees.
Small businesses trying to go online
Ideally...a business owner that has been doing well for the past few years but has seen their revenues and profits fall. They're now looking for more efficient client acquisition methods and they're willing to implement a direct marketing campaign and tie that into video email, auto-responders, personality driven marketing, and personally crafted pitch pages.
I need a basic logo for business cards, letter head, blog head, etc. Those might be separate jobs so please focus on the business card aspect.
I'll take your lead as to if the logo should be squarish, rounded, or more horizontal.
Please use bright colors with enough contrast they can be easily read in print. But please make sure it doesn't look to cute or cartoonish.
The look: web 2.0 ish (I hope that helps more than it confuses)
