While we are mainly targeting local small business owners (plumbers, dentists, chiropractors, electricians etc.) we also want to offer our services to bigger companies who may be in need of SEO services.
We will be targeting Canadian small business owners so we would like a color scheme of red and white (maybe a little black). A white background is best.
One obvious idea for a logo would be to include an arrow of some sort as our company name is Raise Your Rank. We are kind of unsure whether or not the logo should say "Raise Your Rank" or "RaiseYourRank.ca" or "RaiseYourRank" We are leaning towards RaiseYourRank.ca but feel free to play around and see which you think looks best.
The use of a Canadian maple leaf is okay with us but it isnt neccessary if it doensnt add to the design and if it seems to distracting. We would mostly like to make sure an arrow is used for sure.
We think including a tagline somewhere might also be a good idea. . A sample tagline that we are thinking of would be something like "SEO & Internet Marketing for Local Businesses"
Thanks so much! Looking forward to seeing what you all can come up with :)
UPDATE: Attached another SEO companies logo that we kind of like that might help you guys with some inspiration.
