Although having a logo is an absolute necessity for any company, that is just the starting point of marketing your company.

Letterheads, fax covers sheets, business cards and other stationery design requirements would be designed around your company's new logo / corporate identity.
Keep in touch with your clients using your branding. Every email you send out is an impression on your company. We create email stationery that is inline with your current or new corporate branding.

Your domain name lets people find you. Because domains are registered on a first come first serve basis it is extremely important to start with this service. It is always a good idea to keep your domain name short to prevent potential customers from spelling it wrong on search engines. Your domain doesn't have to be your company name but can be a service you provide. So it you are in manufacturing plastic, your domain could be www.plasticmanufacturer.co.za - at the same time you could have your company name as a domain name, forwarding to that website address.
Should the domain name of your choice be taken an abbreviation or a service or product that you provide may be used as an alternative.
