2. Know Your Audience
It cannot be stressed often enough here that it really is important to know who your customers are, their wants needs and desires are important in making purchase decisions.
3. Seek advice
If you know anyone (family or friends) who has marketing experience then ask them to take a look at your current brand and see if they can provide any advice.
4. Consider the outcome
You need to think about what you would like to achieve by altering your brand. Do you want to appeal to a wider audience or perhaps attract a more exclusive clientele?
5. Make sure staff are on board
If you want to try a change of direction, you need to make sure your employees know all about the change and that they are prepared to commit to your plans.
6. Build a strategy
Work out exactly what you plan to do to boost your brand, whether it be changing your logo or updating your product range. Set a timescale for these things to be completed.
After a set period time you should look at your progress and evaluate how successful the changes you made have been. Make further changes if necessary.
