You know you need a good logo for your Reiki business but how do people do that?

Do I need a designer? Should I try and make it myself? How much will it cost?

Over the years I needed a good logo for my business or for the business where I worked. At different times I have made them myself in Photoshop, I have hired ​ a graphic designer to create one or I purchased an existing template online and adapted it for my purposes. All of these options can be the a good solution depending on your budget, designing skills and time available.

The first thing I would advise is just to get an idea of the kind of logo you would like. Colour scheme, text and general layout.

Here's a great way to do that:​ Use the webisite Designmantic to get some quick ideas.

Step 1. Go to​

​Step 2. Enter your desired logo name and choose and industry

You can choose the Industry Religion & Spirituality (although other industries will also give you some good options).

​Step 3. Enter your desired logo name and choose and industry

The website will then automatically generate a large number of options. Choose the one you like an adapt it as you see fit. You can change the font, colours and make other alterations.

While I was playing around I created these four logos:

​Step 4. Purchase and download. Now you might have hit the sweet spot already so you can choose to pay $37 and make your creation your own. 

Alternatively you can pick the design you like the best and use this as a starting point for a designer to ​work with. But don't panic, this doesn't have to cost a fortune. In fact it could cost no more than $5.

Get a logo through a designer on Fiverr.  Go to Fiverr's logo category

Fiverr is an Aladdin's cave of design talent. And a basic Gig on Fiverr costs as the name suggests only five dollars.
So you can take the logo that you have created and ask a designer to make the changes you want.

Or you can choose the style that someone is offering and go with that.

Tips when using Fiverr are:

  • Check out previous buyer reviews when choosing a provider.
  • Be specific and clear. Provide desired sizes and check spelling.
  • It can be worth spending a bit more to get a number of revisions for your logo.

Here's a pretty unique way to get a logo if you have a bit more budget. 
Get 30 different logo's from professional designers in the form of a competition.

Create a design contest. 99designs launches your design contest for your logo in their marketplace for their community of more than 1,132,000 designers to see. From Berlin to Bombay, professional creatives will read your brief and begin to brainstorm ideas just for you.

​Pick the winner. After 7 days, it’s time to pick the winner and sign the copyright agreement. 99designs transfers the prize money to the designer. You download your new design and use it however you like.

 Prices start at $299. Go to 99designs
