    I still have not had a professional logo made and just use one that I made myself but I have been thinking about getting a professional logo made a lot lately because I have seen some real cool logo's around lately.

    I am wondering if a professional logo can help achieve greater success because it can look more professional. What do you guys think?

    I don't think that a professional logo will bring you more success than one that is not professionally done.

    As long as your logo looks nice and not like something cheap that you perhaps copied from another place then I don't think that it will really matter.

    I really don't see how any kind of professionally made logo will help with your success. Maybe if the logo you are currently using looks real bad and you are upgrading to a better one then it might help.

    As long as the one that you are using or will use looks good and appropriate then I doubt anything professionally will add to your level of success.

    I was just thinking that having something that looked more professional and like it is a custom designed logo then people might have a better first impression.

    I wanted something that would draw the attention of people that saw it and they would think that I am not some kind of small timer.

    I don't think it's a requirement for success but a professional logo that looks real nice can help to present a good image for you or your website.

    I have been wanting to get one done for myself but have just not got around to it.

    I guess that makes sense. I don't know if it will make much difference but it might make some kind of difference.

    I think if the one that you use now doesn't look too good then it might help more.

    That's what I was wanting to do. I want to present a more professional image so that I do not look like the junk spam promoters that are out there.

    The one I am using now is kind of plain and basic. I was wanting something that really stood out and looked like it was from a serious business person or company.

    Logo is the representation of a company. The design of the logo should always be memorable. We should be careful when we have to select colors or fonts for a logo. Because the colors and fonts used in the logo can pass a positive and a negative signal to the customers. If the logo design is professional then help the companies to stand out in the market.

    I can appreciate that. It's always good to present yourself in the best possible manner. :D

    Yes because I think if you look cheap or low quality then it might hurt your business.

    You can always try Fiverr or check and see if there is anyone with a good price in the marketplace here and try to get one done and see how it turns out.

    If it turns out nice then you can go a little further and get something more fancy.

    If that is the case then you should see what you can get done to upgrade your logo. I don't really think that you have to spend a lot of money on one but paying for a nice one with a reasonable price might accomplish what you are looking for.

    That's what I think I am going to do. I will check on some of the freelancer websites and see what I can find at a reasonable price.

    I think that if your logo that you use is nice and proper for your needs then it does not matter if it is a professional log or not. A professional logo is usually much faster to get a nice on though.

    A professional logo isn't required but having something that looks nice and professional can certainly help. Whether you make one yourself of pay a professional to make one it just needs to look nice and professional and fit it's use.
