So, you’re looking to take your brand to the next level with an audio logo. This is great news because music is powerful my friend. But, before we get ahead of ourselves lets take a minute to figure out what goes into creating a memorable audio brand.

Play It A Lot

According to recent research done by Centaur Communications Ltd. there are a few things to remember when creating your company’s audio logo. The first being that frequency and long-term consistency is important. Going out and creating a jingle or audio logo that will only be used a few times doesn’t make sense. Neither does showing the audio brand once a quarter.

Tell ’em Who You Are

The next thing to remember is that for people to remember and associate sound with your brand you need to use the brand name in the sound clip.
