It is a well proven fact that human beings’ visual memory is very powerful and people tend to retain what they ‘see’, than for what they ‘hear’ or ‘read’, for a larger period of time. Going by this scientific logic, your business can be expanded if people can recognize your brand. Starting up a business might be easy, but a daunting task is to establish it as a brand, and this can be done when people are able to recognize your brand. So, the question is what can you do to use visual memory power of people for good of your own start-up? The answer is indeed simple, create a logo. A logo which would represent your business.
Creating a logo is not at all easy. One needs to find a professional talented designer who can express and represent the business in form of a logo. Finding professional designers is no problem at all, you can easily get one here. The most of problem is in the fact that professionals are expensive. Of-course this is why they are professionals. A typical logo design by a professional could cost from $50 to even thousands of dollars. A typical Nigerian entrepreneur is not ready to investing this amount of money in a logo. Well truth be told, if you have the capital, you should hire one. Again, this depends also on the type of business, the kind of logo demanded, the format of raw files demanded (PNG, JPG, PSD, SVG etc) and of course the experience of the professional designer. Newbies generally charge lesser fees, but again if you are hiring, why not hire the best in order to get a fulfilling result?

After you’re satisfied with your design, you can register and get an instant downloading link for your logo.
4) Logo Design Engine
Unlike other sites which provides full-fledge editor for creating logos, this site provides very limited options. I felt searching for an image was also tiresome as it displays only five images on one page. So, one needs to keep jumping frequently to other pages. Nevertheless, this site can be useful for people who do not want to use alignment, rotation and other options and just want a logo to be picked up very quickly. Once you create a logo, you can download it without any registration.
5) Logo Genie
