Time and again I’m asked to help a company rebrand.
For some, it happens early on once they’ve discovered who they really are – while with others, it occurs after many years of having grown (or outgrown) their brand. But before starting the process of creating a brand new image, I feel that a good few questions need to be asked.
18 Questions That Every Rebrand Needs to Ask
- Why do you want to rebrand?
- What problem are you trying to solve?
- Has there been a change in the competitive landscape that is impacting your company’s growth potential?
- Has there been a change in your customer profile?
- Are you stuck as something that you and your customer have outgrown?
- Is your brand telling an incorrect or outdated story?
- What do you want to convey and to whom?
- Does your customer care about your brand and it’s possible change?
- Have your customer’s needs, or the way you defined them, changed?
- Is the brand associated with something that is no longer meaningful?
- Are you leading with your brand direction?
- Are you following with your brand direction?
- Would rebranding be a stepping stone (evolutionary) or a milestone (revolutionary)?
- Are we leading with our brand direction?
- Are we following with our brand direction?
- Will this solution work in 5, 10 and 15 years from?
- Have you assigned some committee to manage the project versus someone (or at most, two people) who is/are focused, inspired and can lead?
- If you were starting your business today, would this be the brand solution you would come up with?
