Even if you have ten technicians your not going to approach millions of advertising dollars, let alone billions.
You kinda misread the quote. I was saying NIKE had spent billions to make an unorthodox name work. Not that OP needed to. In his case Big money might be $5k or it might be $50k. The important point is he is creating an additional hurdle to over come.

Yep. A name that make go "huh? What does he do? Where does he do it?" Might as well go to the next tech that is clearer.

Your logo isn't really a logo, it's just typeface done in Word Art. I think you should figure out something that reflects your business. Hire a designer to create something for you. Just my 2 cents

I know of 2 designers that are affordable. One can probably make you a logo for $50.

Thanks for all your replies guys, very useful. To follow up on a few of the points made:

I don't agree that this isn't a logo. A logo is defined as "a name, symbol, or emblem that acts as a trademark or a means of identification of an institution or other entity". Look at Google, IBM, or Microsoft.

And just as a mini comment! This was created with Photoshop, not Word Art! But it deffinately needs improvement.

I'm not sure any name truely reflects everything a company is until it provides the service to the customer. After all, 3 years ago who would have bought a games console called Wii?

True, but no one is saying it should reflect everything just that it should reflect something about your company. It should give the customer some point of reference and hopefully some kind of positive feeling. As to Wii again you are referencing a product name that a company spent millions on popularizing. That is a different ball game.

I would tone down the saturation of the color a *little* bit. It could be quite glaring in the dark.
Also, have you tried enlarging the 't' a bit to balance out the 'PC'? I don't know if that is what you are looking for, but I would at least give it a shot. Maybe make it at least as tall as the 'h' next to it without making it fatter.

Try freelancer to get a logo done for $35 they usually do great work. My designer will do them all day for $25 until your happy.

Not to be funny but if I didn't know any better I would think you're a web site technician, by name only.
