“Never forget that you only have one opportunity to make a first impression with investors, with customers, with PR and with marketing.”
~ Natalie Massenet
It is said that you cannot judge a book by its cover.
How many times have you looked at a book cover and put it down without looking at the content inside?
Unfortunately, you might be putting down the best book ever written.
The first thing that a person sees on your blog is your logo. If you make your logo appealing, they will continue to engage with your content.
If the logo is less than desirable, the reader will leave to a different site.
You want to create a great first impression, it might be the last one you have.
