Right now, you may not feel much like rebranding your business. With the Covid-19 pandemic continuing to rage on and many companies clinging to their existing branding, customers and processes, such a time of crisis could however bring with it some unexpected benefits. In the chaos of 2020, it would be easy to overlook your branding needs, but this is a time when you could almost certainly benefit from taking a closer look and carrying out a thorough assessment.
Your brand is new
Newer brands, with limited baggage holding them down, will certainly place themselves at a competitive advantage by assessing their branding early on. It is never too early to establish a strong brand identity, and current circumstances may have even helped you understand where your strengths and weaknesses lie as a company, which can then be translated into sparkling branding.
Your brand has been restructured
Whether you’ve been part of a major acquisition/merger or are simply undergoing some critical new shifts in the way the business is run, recruiting an award winning design agency will help you say what you need to say through your branding. Companies going through this process will likely want to highlight the new benefits and skills this merger or acquisition offers, and branding is a fantastic route to doing just that.
Your branding is outdated
It is tempting to cling to your existing branding, particularly if it has served you well in the past. However, a new decade and a challenging year may call for a new look, particularly if you find your company is taking a different direction to the way things were prior to the pandemic.
Brands in disruptive industries have to reassess their communications strategy (and their branding) more regularly, to keep on top of the competition. After such a strange few months, you may find it is time to rework some things you previously considered cornerstones of the company. For those unsure about whether their brand and their offering still match, it may be wise to seek outside expertise who will be able to provide an unbiased viewpoint. Ready for a rebrand?
