SEMrush new Face lift
In this SEMrush SEOtool makeover review I will look at the new face lift SEMrush have done in 2020.
All online tools are branded differently. Some are really good at branding themselves and others are not so occupied with it. But branding is shown to make a difference for customers. Customers are more likely to buy from a strong and visible brand than from a less known brand.
SEMrush is maybe the SEO tool that is always up to date with new leading edge technology, tools and looks that attracts their audience. One thing is for sure. They have grasped the key to branding themselves. In 2020 they did a huge makeover.
The new SEMrush SEO tool Makeover will not go unnoticed for sure. The logo, colours, visuals, price plans, content marketing tools,have all been given a huge face lift. They also started to use Shareasale as a new Affiliate Platform.
But is this face lift good or bad? Is the new suit of SEMrush making them better in the customers eyes? Do they attract the customers more easily with this new state of the art branding?
So let me take a closer look at the most important updates and find out if the updates will benefit you as an affiliate marketer and if it will benefit you as a customer. Because that is what you want to know. Do you agree?
The New SEMrush Logo -The Fireball
Here it is:
Let us take a closer look . The symbol in the logo is a fireball. There is no doubt about it. Looking at the new logo is like looking at a piece of art. It is simple, hot, telling, full of energy and movement. I feel I get energy just by looking at that fireball. Don`t you? It is on fire and ready to roll. The logo tells me that this company is energetic and full of initiative, guts and power.
I like the igniting feeling the fireball give me. It is like I can do anything. I feel excitement, Joy and a sense of urge at the same time. What do you feel when you look at it?
I think the logo is awesome and very appealing. It is definitely a logo that draws attention to its customers and affiliate partners. It is a logo you can easily identify with if you are a customer looking for something that can fuel your business forward or an affiliate marketer looking for a tool to research the best keywords and make success.
New Best practices for using the new SEMrush logo
Most brands have a best practice for using the logo. Let us take a look at some of the SEMrush best practices. This is especially important for affiliate marketers who are promoting SEMrush products. But it is also important for customers because they easily recognize the brand if they are consistent with the Logo use and colors.I will not go into all the details, but just give you the most important information I think it is good to know.
It is recommended to use the logo in orange, but the logo can be used in white color where appropriate. Below you can see an example of how to use the Logo right and how not to use it.

On the dark indigo and hot orange backgrounds the inverted version of the logo is used. The same goes for photo backgrounds where the inverted version of the logo is used. This way it is easy for customers to recognize the brand.
The logo should according to SEMrush best practices be used in a smaller scale that equals a lower case letter. It is not recommended to use it on a large scale. See the Examples below:

Customers can more easily recognize and identify with a more modern and visual fresh brand. And the new look is fresh and modern and they give good support to their customers.
As I mentioned above I think there are many businesses who identify with the logo and the fireball that symbolize growth, energy, resilience and fuel.
The cons with the SEMrush Makeover
There is not much negative to say about the new makeover. It is Simple, hot, modern fresh, upto date and brilliant. There will always be some who does not like changes – that think it was better before and may stop being customers just because of that.It costs money to do facelifts on branding however it does not have seemed to affect the prices or the affiliate commissions. Affiliate partners and customers seems to be pleased with the new Makeover
SEMrush rocks the SEO scene in a new suit
My final thoughts are that I love the new makeover SEMrush did. I think it was a huge success. It shows me a flexible company that can adapt to changes and new times. It also tells me they care about giving their customers and partners the best service. I think the new logo and colours are very appealing for both customers and affiliate partners. The new content tool marketing kit is awesome.
