What is branding? What does branding do for you? Why is it important?

Let me ask you a question. What comes to your mind when I say “Golden Arches”? McDonald’s, right? How about “apple”? You get my point.

Apple, Amazon, Google, Yahoo, Bing – all companies that have used images and branding to the utmost advantage. Just saying the name brings a visual to everyone’s mind instantly.

That’s what we want for our web sites – an image that will be, hopefully, forever associated with that site.

One very inexpensive (as in free) way to help accomplish that is to create a featured image with a text overlay that can be used in all of your posts and pages when shared on social media.


Next, I'm going to show you how to create the image, then we'll add it to your page...

Clever idea. Its like a personal banner at the top of the frame. I guess the alt tag would simply be your website name. How will that effect the seo?

Thanks. I don't think it would affect the seo but you might want to check with someone who knows more than I do about that, lol.

Thanks for this Debby but would it get a bit repetitive ???

As just a featured image I don't think so because there are other images within the posts. If you think so you can do a new one for each post that you do.

Thank you Debby, I really liked this. So you keep that same image but change the text depending upon what site you are putting it on?

I only use this image for one site. But I use it for every post and page now because I have my site name layered over it. I will do something different for other sites.
