Whether you are a Martian from Mars or an Alien from the other world, if you are living on earth, you’d need to earn! Just don’t forget to wear your human outfit before going out to sell. Great people say that for businesses to succeed, they must have professionals working in their organization. How true this line is. A good salesman is one who is able to sell a comb to a bald man; a good marketer is one who promotes company’s products in such a way that the sales turnover hit skies!
Yes. In fact, a company’s reputation and respect is connected to its logo. This is just one of the many things that are important to maintain company’s reputation. The quality of the product is very important. Even if you have the best salesmen, your products will not earn you much if the quality isn’t good. Things will be revealed to the customers in a long run. So there are not necessarily ways one could survive without keeping safe.

Starbucks started out in 1971 and it changed three logos. Have you realized why the company decided to change logo design, pattern and font over the years? It was because of the targeted audience. Perhaps, a specific design was not suited to people after certain time. The first logo of Starbucks had a naked siren, with its tail extended to left and right. This logo was closest to reality. The company realized in 1986 that the upper body should not be revealed so they altered the design but even then the body exposed too much. They again decided to alter the design. In 1992, they dropped hair to hide her body and changed the color from brown to green. These specific things were done after a great deal of thought. The last logo change was in 2011. The company decided to focus more on siren face so they exposed it more and removed the black color from the design.
