Long for Success, LLC (FYI OLD website http://www.mlongconsulting.com BUT I'm getting a NEW one so DON'T go by that logo)
My new business name is Long for Success, LLC and I focus on helping other accounting professionals & small business owners succeed & grow their business. I also help people with QuickBooks. (FYI QuickBooks is an accounting program for small businesses to keep their books).
I'm an author, speaker and national trainer for Intuit (company that makes QuickBooks, Quicken and TurboTax). I reach small business owners nationwide so the contest winner has the opportunity for exposure and referrals!
SPECIAL NOTE: I'll be speaking nationally this fall from Chicago to Orlando to the West Coast to thousands of accounting professionals and small business owners. Plus, I hope to get my 2nd book finished & published! The Winner (and possibly runner ups) will be included on the new website with a link to your site as well through the end of the year at least. Not to mention I'll tell people who created my great logo!
Descriptive words for my business:
ethical, reliable, dependable, partner, expert, resouce
Benefits to clients: guidance and partner on their road or path to success
My current and prospective clients are accounting professionals and small business owners. They are educated, knowledgeable and successful and they value honesty, integrity and strive for success!
I generally prefer logos that are more conservative—not too contemporary. Credibility is a big deal in this industry.
My last name (Long) and Success should be somewhat prominent. I like blue (royal/bright blue especially) and perhaps would like some other color(s) too. I don't like the name in all caps.
PLEASE create a new, unique logo to help brand and represent my business.
The logo will be used in several different applications (business card, PowerPoint, website, PDF),
NOTE DELIERABLES FROM YOU: Logo (2 variations) in a Vector format (illustrator EPS file) and PNG (at least 300 dpi) -- one that can be used with a white background & one for a royal blue background (for webheader) with a transparent background.
PLUS: Front of a business card--I'll give contact info to winner privately.
Later, I would probably use you to help with the book cover & back of the business card to include pics of both of my books!
I reserve the right to extend the contest if necessary. But, I really need a logo and the sooner the better!
I will do my best to give prompt feedback about what I like and don’t like. I promise I’ll log in at least daily (most likely multiple times per day).
