The Power of Rebranding

 Feeling a little lost about your brand’s direction? You might consider re-branding your business.

Now, you may be asking yourself – What does a re-brand entail?

It can often be as simple as changing your brand’s logo and updating your website design, something many companies typically do every once in a while to freshen up their image and stay up to date and modern. In more extreme cases, it can be a complete overhaul of the existing brand and can even involve changing the name of your brand to suit your business’s new direction.Your brand is an essential component of your business. You need to fully understand if you truly want to re-brand your business as it can be an arduous task if not thought through properly.

Here are some of the potential reasons that one might consider a re-brand.

  • Reflect the natural evolution of the company
    • Connect with a new audience
      • Keep up with the times

There’s a certain charm that comes with family-owned and operated businesses that have been in the industry for decades. However, it comes a time when a business either outgrows their outdated image or past reputation and needs to re-brand to stay current and modern to appeal to a new generation of customers.

  • Better differentiate from the competition
  •  Streamline or refocus your message.

However, there are also potential risks when it comes to re-branding that you need to be aware of.

  • Costly process

On top of the cost to create new sales and marketing materials, content, and graphic design, there’s also the cost of developing and implementing a re-branding strategy and the budget for marketing and advertising campaigns to support the re-brand.

  • Potentially miss the mark

If not done with proper intent and research before delving deep into the re-branding process, a re-brand can completely miss the mark by not reflecting the company’s goals or appealing to the target audience.

  • Lose current customers

There is a serious risk that you may lose current customers who have already identified with your existing brand. In an attempt to appeal to a new target market, your new branding may not resonate with your current customer base. There are plenty of benefits, yet potential dangers when it comes to re-branding your business.
