Know Your Audience:
This doesn’t only mean knowing who you want to purchase or interact with your product, but also who your ads are appealing to and why. If your social media accounts do better advertising to get clients than a newspaper ad, look at the audience you’re attracting and focus on that group.
You might think your ad design is geared toward the people who want your business but tracking who is actually interacting can help you better target certain groups. How you design your ads can be just as important as where you put them.
Name and Logo:
When you are beginning your branding journey, you want to be set on your name and logo, and put those out as often as possible, along with any useful info like a website. Your logo should be representative of your brand, clear on what you have to offer, and also creative to bring people in. You can also create several options and get a second or third opinion before you settle on a final design.
Variety and Cohesion:
When it comes to company design, you want to make sure your ads are “on brand.” Are you using similar fonts, certain colors, and styles that allow people to immediately recognize your company? You also need to make a wide variety of ads that still fit your style so they can fit with different ad posts and websites.
If you are new to digital design, there are a lot of great tools to help you make ads for specific spots on websites or other places. If you’re looking to make a website banner, you can use a free banner maker to make your site pop and remain in your branding style.
What’s Your Story
When people are interacting with a new brand or company, they want to know what you’re about, where you came from and where you’re going. This means having an “about” page on your website, as well as letting your branding tell part of the story before people even come to your website.
When you’re creating any kind of digital design or ad design in general, you want to keep your message positive. Stay on the topic of what you have to offer and allow your own company to shine.
Do It Differently:
With company design, you want to lean into what makes you different from others. There are so many different ads and brands vying for attention these days. One of the best ways is to show how you are different and even better if you can highlight that in your ad design.
