Rebranding isn’t for everyone (and you certainly shouldn’t do it often), but if your company is struggling to make sales and keep customers interested in your products or services, it might be a good idea to give it a new image.
1) Research your competition
Dig deep to find out what your competitors are doing and how your industry has changed since you first began as a company. Try to figure out how your successful competitors are pleasing their customers and what your less successful competitors are missing the mark.
2) Talk to people
Plenty of people out there have an opinion about your company – do some talking and find out what it is! Ask your employees and customers what they think about your products or services, what you should do differently, and so on. Then use their feedback to craft a new business model.
3) Think from the inside out
Rebranding your company means creating a new strategy for satisfying your customers, and the easiest way to do that is to get your employees on board. Make sure they are all engaged, involved, and excited to see some new changes. Their enthusiasm is what will drive productivity.
4) Update your look
Catching customers’ attentions could be as easy as revising the way your company looks. Try tweaking your logo colors or modernizing your font. And if your website is sloppy, focus on a better user experience. (Check out our responsive web designs.) You may be surprised at how many heads you turn and interests you spark.
5) Hop on the social media train
In case you haven’t noticed, individuals and businesses alike are communicating via social media. If you don’t have a strong, reliable presence on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc., make one (we can help with that!). Create connections with your customers and show them your company keeps up with the latest trends.
6) Don’t go to the extreme
You may want to turn your company around but if you change too much, you may lose a lot of your current customers. Think “refresh” more than “alter.”
