Domain Name Of A Website

March 27, 2012

The domain name is a very important aspect of setting up a website for your business as it can have a considerable impact on the number of visitors that you are likely to receive in the long run. The choice regarding the kind of domain name to choose should be made after a certain amount of deliberation and research regarding the kind of keywords that are most likely to be searched by web users when they are looking for the kind of products or services being sold by your company. Choosing the wrong domain name can lead to a lifetime of obscurity on the internet for a well-developed website and an otherwise successfully running offline business. Thus, if your chief goal is to enhance your visibility and advertize your business, it is essential to select a well thought out domain name.

Choosing a domain name should never be a hurried decision as there are several elements that go into the making of a domain name best suited for your business. The best choice for a domain name is quite simple and should ideally be the name of your company. However, this is easier said than done as due to the huge influx of e-commerce or other business websites, it is highly likely that the domain name that you want is already registered by another business owner. Thus, many experts advice newly formed businesses to choose their company names only after they have obtained a suitable domain name so that their company name and domain name can be a perfect match. However, for businesses that are already well-established and cannot afford to change their company names, a certain amount of compromise can be made to get the next best domain name.

There are several options available to businesses that find their preferred domain names already taken. Such businesses can choose to suffix their domain name with .net or .org or even choose to have the country name as per the country of operations of their business or their country of origin instead of going in for .com suffix. This can help them retain their company name and also help in a country specific search conducted by users.

For more information on choosing a domain name or creating an ecommerce application, or business website, feel free to call us at Centex Technologies Killeen (254-213-4740) and Dallas (972-851-7878) Texas.

Corporate Logo Designing Tips

January 16, 2012

Corporate logos form an important part of the advertizement process and can be instrumental in determining the success of your promotional campaigns. The logo of your company not only represents what your company stands for but also helps leave an indelible impression on the minds of your customers. A well-designed logo helps build a positive rapport with potential consumers and also enables them to remember your brand. A corporate logo finds several uses as it is not only used for advertizements but is also imprinted on company property. The packaging of products generally bears a logo so as to further publicize your brand.

There are several tips that can help you design a corporate logo. Some of them have been listed below:

  • There are several software like Coral Draw, Adobe Photoshop, etc. that have been specially formed  to help create logos and other such creative elements. You can either take the help of an existing employee and come up with a logo design or hire a designing firm to do the same for you. Instructions can be provided along with rough drafts regarding the kind of logo that you wish to have before the final logo is designed by a third party.
  • It is important to remember that the logo for your company needs to be unique, distinctive and feature a simple design. It is generally believed that simple logos are retained to a greater extent by customers thus increasing remembrance power for your brand.
  • The logo that you come up with should be representative of your company’s core values and policies and should be carefully designed so as to be in accordance with your company’s image. For example, a big, corporate firm that has a strict hierarchical structure and a disciplined code of conduct is better suited to a clean, simple logo with minimal colors while a newly formed fast food business lends itself well to a colorful, funky logo design.
  • The logo to be designed should not be over complicated so that it is easy to print onto several items like company t-shirts, promotional items like pens, cups, etc. The best logo designs are those that are simple while also being powerful.

We at Centex Technologies create complete corporate creatives including logos, website designs, etc. We also provide Web Development, SEO and Internet Marketing services to our clients. For more details contact us at our Killeen (254-213-4740) or Dallas (972-851-7878) Office.
