Logos and Business Cards - Do They Matter?

Yes. Not as much as taking action: getting out there and marketing, talking to homeowners, making offers, and closing on deals - but it does matter. You need to instill confidence that you can perform.

I tried creating my own logo and while it wasn't bad for an amateur, it was noticeably...amateurish. The homeowners you deal with need to have confidence that you are not a fly-by-night company. If you get pricing from the better logo design companies you will see that the going rate is about $250-$300. If you want a professional design for a great price ($149) then check out the Logo Company
(can you guess what they specialize in?) Wired magazine voted The Logo Company "Best In Test" for online logo design companies.

Once you get your logo you can have them printed on your business card for a few bucks by going here: 30% to 60% OFF All Products
