Making the decision to re-brand your business may be a tough one. Re-branding is often a daunting journey to embark on, however the process is a rewarding one that can produce significant benefits.
No business can afford to rest on its laurels. You may be keeping up with market and economic changes but is your brand?
Re-branding is an opportunity to breathe new life into your business but only if it’s done with a focus on strategy, a clear process, with professional creative vision and importantly for the right reasons.
A brand is not just a logo and a re-brand is about a whole lot more than just making your business look great – it’s about making your bottom line look great as well.
Before beginning, it’s important to assess the value of a re-brand. Look at factors such as differentiation, market share, brand awareness, bearing, associations, emotional connectivity and consumer profile to name a few. If you can improve your relationships with your customers and target audience in any or most of these key factors, it’s worth seriously considering a re-brand.
As the public face of your business, a successful re-brand can help you reflect current market dynamics and gain competitive advantage, boost financial performance and position yourselves as industry leaders. Through revisiting your brand messaging you can increase market share and counteract any loss in consumer confidence and decreased profitability.
A re-brand can act as a public declaration of a company’s evolution. As any small business flourishes, a re-brand could echo the larger, more established and experienced company it has become. Businesses who fail to develop their brands risk being left behind by their competitors.
A well-executed re-brand can improve your impact in a crowded market especially if you operate in a market with complex portfolios and fragmented audiences. As your company grows and develops, customers drawn to fresh and relevant will be encouraged to discover what’s new.
Whatever your reason for re-branding, your company’s brand must remain coherent with the latest and best your business has to offer. Be that reflecting product or service advancements or the progressing nature of your business as a whole, the re-branding process is vital in communicating to your customers.
