Branding is Important

Branding is a key element of your business. Your branding is the first building block that positions your business to be able to speak to customers and clients about the identity of your company. A strong brand will express your purpose, products, services, and mission to the consumers. Therefore, do not discount the message that your brand is sending out.

RGP is a well known business development company that the team here at Digital 55 has done work for including their branding. 

The why behind the brand.

Sam Scherf, Creative Director said, "Our goal behind the branding of RGP was to focus on the logo and the messaging behind it. The goal for the logo was to create a concise, short, and simple refresh of the image. There is purpose and meaning behind every element of a logo ranging from the color to the font."

Each element of the logo we created fit the criteria of intentional and purposeful. The acronym created a more concise and recognizable look. The organization was most widely known as RGP and the design is clean. The bold lettering allows the logo to capture the attention of potential clients. Due to RGP being a business development company the arrow was included to symbolize growth. The descriptor at the bottom of the logo is a location identifier and tells what RGP is selling. The color choices in the logo are intentional as well. The navy blue represents strength, stability, and confidence. The green accent color represents profit, success, and growth. The colors and meaning complement each other well. Font in the process of designing a logo is important. The font chosen for RGP’s logo is strong, modern, and uncomplicated. The Italicized font represents forward thinking and always being in motion.  Breaking down the RGP logo shows the intentionality and thought that needs to be put into any branding. The branding of a company is the first impression that potential customers and clients receive.

We are thankful that RGP allowed us to be on this journey with them and that we continue to get to have this company as a client. You can find RGP here

Productivity in Small Businesses

What tools can your small business implement to keep your employees productive?

If you want your team to be productive, it’s important to have the right internal tools and to ensure that everyone who needs them uses them. Something as simple as a cloud database where everyone can access the information they need will make a world of difference. Instead of everything getting lost in an email chain that might take an employee 20 minutes to find, think about investing in software that will make your business run more efficiently. Running more efficiently leads to greater productivity. 

Software can help improve your productivity.

There are so many examples of these products it can make your head spin! One thing that Digital 55 uses is our own Customer Relationship Management (CRM) tool. It allows us to keep our contacts all in one place. If your sales rep reaches out to a client and then goes to lunch, but billing has a question and needs to reach out to that same client, they don’t need to wait for the sales rep to return to the office. Billing can easily access our CRM for the information that they need because it’s all stored in one place.

The options are endless!

Another way to streamline efficiency is for your team members to use a productivity tool that acts like a planner. This way you can keep track of your tasks as they come in, and as they are completed. Tools like Monday, Trello, Basecamp, Asana, Evernote, and Planner on G-Suite are only a few of the many tools out there. Some are even free to use!

If you take the time to do a little research, there’s a tool out there that will help you keep your employees more productive on a daily basis. Tell us about some of the tools your business uses to stay organized and on track. We’d love to hear from you!
