One of the most important aspects of being an entrepreneur is your brand. Your brand embodies everything that is your business, it is what your clients see first, it truly is the representation of you in your business.
But how do we know when it’s the right time to rebrand your business? Or, if you even need to?
Growth is a part of life, whether you fight it or not, you will always grow and change, and so will your business. With this, naturally comes adjustments to your services, your employees, your strategy, and yes, your brand.
Here are five possibilities that it’s time to rebrand your business:
Your business evolved
It’s inevitable. More often than not, businesses evolve into something different than what they started as, and that’s okay! New offerings or products show that you are in tune with your clientele and know how to better serve them. However, new services require a new strategy and maybe even a rebrand. You may be able to sell them better if you hone in on your niche and build a brand around it.
You want to charge higher prices
Congrats! If you are kicking butt in your business and feel it’s time to up your prices you absolutely should. However, when doing so, it’s important to then take a look at your brand and your business to see if it matches your new rates. Higher prices mean your brand needs to come off seamlessly, professional, and well put together. To sell for more you have to create luxury within your brand.
You don’t feel inspired
Even though you worked so hard on your brand when you first got started and you loved it, it’s okay to lose interest and feel like you want something different. Your brand should inspire you every day and if it isn’t, rebrand into something that will! Odds are if you aren’t feeling your brand, neither is your clientele.
You’re trying to connect with a new audience
Finding your target audience is crucial to having a successful business. If you find that you’re not connected to the right crowd, try rebranding with your demographic in mind! Your brand is your first impression, you want it to reflect you, but you also want it to reflect the people you are trying to reach.
You’re too similar to your competition
This is a big one. We like to think that our business is unique from everything else, and there probably are aspects of it that are but that doesn’t mean you don’t have competition. If your brand is similar to others in your field, you should think about rebranding to something more unique and that will stand out. You don’t want your potential clients wondering, “well, what’s the difference?”, especially if you are charging more!
