From the client prospective:
If you ever saw the TV show “What Not to Wear,” then you know that a new look can completely change a person’s self-perception, which in turn changes the way others view them. The same is true of brands.
WriterGirl needed a new look.
Parting with our old look felt like Clinton and Stacy had ripped my comfy, well-worn Uggs right off my feet. It was painful (and a little embarrassing), but it had to be done.
Looking to rebrand your business?
Some may consider rebranding as a complete change of what the brand stands for and looks like. This is not true – a good rebrand is not a U-turn or change of faith! It is the realisation that their brand has grown and changed far beyond its original goals and values. A good rebrand allows a refocus on core values and strengthening of those aspects that truly reflect your product or service – reconnecting it to its users or consumers, current or potential new ones.
When undertaking a rebranding project it is essential to consider the following:
What – are you trying to achieve?
Why – do you need to rebrand?
Who – do you want to target and what will they be looking for?
How – do you want to achieve this? – How are your closest competitors achieving their market share?
Lombardo & Partners is known for being one the most recognized rebranding advertising and marketing agency agencies.
Most marketers evolve their brands over time to keep them relevant. Some do it well, while others become the target of cynical bloggers. To gear your next rebrand for success, sidestep these all-too-common mistakes:
Clinging to history.
Rebranding well means staying relevant. Assumptions made when the brand was established may no longer hold true. Analyze changes in target markets when exploring opportunities for brand expansion, repositioning and revitalization.
Thinking the brand is the logo, stationery or corporate colors.
Brands encompass everything from customer perception and experience to quality, look and feel, customer care, retail and web environments, the tone and voice of communications, and more.
