Do You Need A Logo For Your House Cleaning Business?
(In this social media icon bar you’ll recognize every one of those platforms by its logo.)
Do you need a logo to start your own house cleaning business? No. it’s optional, but I highly recommend getting one. A logo for a house cleaning business would be a fun little picture that says what you do. It might be a man with a vacuum, or a woman with a broom, or a house with a smiley face on it, or something of that nature.
I chose mine for Savvy Cleaner because the teardrop could be water – and we use water to clean. The tear drop looks like a house with a little chimney, front door, and window – and we’re talking about house cleaning so that works. There are sparkles on the logo which unconsciously suggests making your house sparkle – which is of course how we leave our clients homes. And the blue and green colors suggest environmentally friendly. So, this is a great logo for us here at Savvy Cleaner.
Don’t Steal Someone Else’s Logo.
Have one created just for your business? You don’t want to run around promoting someone else’s brand. That makes you look bad, and it doesn’t help your branding efforts.
What’s so great about having a logo?
Check it out. When I show you this yellow arches M, you know what company it represents. Am I right? I don’t even have to say the company name. You know immediately it means fast hamburgers, fries, happy meals, a drive through, coffee, breakfast, ice cream cones, and apple pie. It is because they have done a phenomenal job with their marketing. Worldwide the golden arches tell a story everybody recognizes.
And how about this one:
We know its coffee and free Wi-Fi. Logos do that for you. They tell your story in one glance. So at some point, you may want to create one that says what you do, and you’ll want to use it on all of your marketing. It’s part of your brand.
Having a logo adds instant credibility. So if you are starting from scratch, and you don’t have house cleaning experience, having a logo will make it look instantly like you are a real company, and you know what you are doing.
