Karen Saunders, award-winning graphic designer, has just posted the third in a series of free articles on her website. With her new article, she shows people how choosing the right color scheme for their marketing pieces begins the selling process. The article, "Advertising and Color," can be found at http://buyappealmarketing.blogspot.com.
Saunders takes the cultural meanings of 4 main color categories, yellow, green, red, and blue, and gives typical emotional responses for each. Then she takes it a step further to give specific instances in which each category could be used depending on the type of business.
"Color affects our mood, there's no doubt about that," says Saunders. "And when you use what we know about color psychology in your ad materials, you increase your chances of reaching your target market."
With this third article, Saunders continues to offers design tips specifically designed to assist the small business owner in creating their own unique, quality advertising pieces. She dishes out simple, proven methods of marketing in easy to understand lingo.
"Marketing doesn't have to be so hit and miss," says Saunders. "Most business owners don't have a degree in marketing. My goal in creating this series is to make the advertising techniques that professionals use accessible to everyone."
Saunders' willingness to share her ideas and experience has made her a favorite among small business owners. Upcoming articles will continue to take the mystery out of marketing. Readers will learn:
- Tips on creating a strong business card that will persuade potential customers to actually use the card (rather than tossing it into the nearest circular file).
