How to know when to change things up for your brand.
Do you look at elements of your online presence and think, ‘this doesn’t represent me, anymore?’ We often have clients come to us knowing they need a change, but not sure exactly what the problem is. They like pieces of their brand, maybe they love their logo or a certain page on their website… but overall, these clients feel that their brand needs something changed.
The fantastic thing about refreshing or rebranding a website, a social media presence, or an entire brand is that it can easily feature those elements you still love about your brand! Changing things up doesn’t mean abandoning the successful business you have cultivated over the years, it means that you are allowing your business to grow and change to best represent you! Wondering if rebranding may be something for you? Keep reading.
What Does Rebranding Involve?
Rebranding can involve just about anything. One of the most common forms of rebranding happens with your website. Refreshing a website helps to incorporate a new look and feel, introduce updated tech like online booking forms or interactive calendars or simply spruce up content and photography to look more appealing to clients.
Rebranding can also influence your business’ logo and the print assets you give to clients like business cards and brochures. Achieving a unified look can be tricky, especially when you’ve been in business for a long time and made many small changes over the years. Once you start looking around at your various print media, you may realize you’ve been ‘refreshing’ your brand all by yourself for years! The key is getting things consistent across the board, so you look unified and professional to all your clients.
Refreshing your brand also involves some intangible work. While you are working to look fantastic on the client-facing side, taking the time to review your business from the ground up is a great idea. What are your goals for your business? Are you happy with your service offerings? Is there anything you want to change up? Which service is making you the biggest profit or bringing you the most enjoyment? Taking the time to review your business and update your goals will help you get the most out of a brand refresh.
