Why a Rebrand Isn’t Always the Answer

When sales are stagnating and revenue takes a dip, your natural instinct is to rush to revamp your marketing strategy or revisit your branding. Your gut reaction tells you that it is time to do something new and start from scratch.

Clearly, performance is dropping because your audience is bored and craving something fresh, right? Not necessarily.

There are a myriad of reasons why sales shift and numbers fluctuate over the course of your business. Sure, your audience may have grown desensitized to your branding overtime—that could be a genuine reason. However, it could also be that your product is not targeting the right consumer or you are marketing on the wrong channels.

Every challenge that you encounter is unique and requires careful consideration in order to course correct. Marketing and branding are not black and white. Therefore, a rebrand may not be the answer you’re looking for. 

There is a gray area that needs to be explored in order to create a holistic, long-term solution with maximum effectiveness and minimum resistance.

 

There is a gray area that needs to be explored in order to create a holistic, long-term solution with maximum effectiveness and minimum resistance.

This kind of solution requires much more than instinct and gut reaction. It requires you to slow down and be present with the rhythms of your business, taking into account every variable that could be contributing to your present obstacle. Only once you’ve witnessed the aerial view can you narrow in on a solid solution. 

Sometimes, it takes an extra pair of eyes to get to that heightened perspective. 

As the founder and CEO of your company, you’re so close to everything that it can be hard for you to step back and see all of the details. Your vision is clouded by expectations and patterns that have been in place since the beginning. When you invite someone into this process with you, you’re opening up the doors to receive insight that you would have otherwise missed.

That’s the beauty of hiring a branding strategist—we’re able to give you an unbiased, unclouded perspective of how you can expand as a brand.

Together, we create a unique game plan to increase your revenue, energize your products/services, tell your brand’s story, and streamline your sales process so you can grow without diving headfirst into a lengthy rebrand. 

So, before you follow the impulse to burn everything to the ground and start anew, explore all of your options. The last thing we want you to do is invest in a rebrand that never needed to happen in the first place.

Instead, let’s work together to create a balanced, holistic solution to bring your vision back to life. Click here to schedule a consulting session.

Reimagining Marketing

For many business owners we’ve spoken to over the last 10 years, the word carries negative connotations. They envision it being something that requires an always-on, extroverted personality, face-to-camera on social media, and aggressively pushing people into sales using tactics like fear and scarcity.

The Making of a Brand

Over the years, we’ve learned that breathing life into a brand requires a careful balance of strategy and spontaneity. No rebrand is exactly the same. From ideation to cultivation, each journey looks different from the last.

The Psychology of Color

Color surrounds us in every moment, affecting the way we exist in our day to day life. Imagine stepping into a living room bathed in warm sunlight and shades of burnt orange. The floor is carpeted a soft, creamy white and the plants in the corner provide a splash of green to accent the space.
