Rebranding, restyling

The modern world is very dynamic: consumers are becoming more demanding, fashion is variable. What yesterday was innovative and trendy tomorrow is not perceived by audience. Therefore, companies should keep abreast being successful.

You need to constantly change, while not losing brand identity. The most popular update tools are rebranding and restyling.

Rebranding involves the possibility of positioning, logo and style change.

Restyling is usually limited to style and design change.

However, both tools have their drawbacks:

 dovgo Duration. Development, implementation and communication of the updated brand and style take much time and make it impossible to respond to market trends quickly enough and “skim the cream off”.
investytsiyi Investment. Regular brand and style update requires development and communication budget. Given the dynamics of the market, not every company can do continuous capital infusion into rebranding and restyling. Besides, it is fixed investment that must be paid back, whereas rebranding can be inefficient in terms of cost recovery. On the other hand, it is difficult to justify the usefulness of rebranding investment to leadership, as a product is sold now, whereas rebranding cannot guarantee the growth of sales. However, if there is no rebranding, the company will gradually lose its market share. The pitfall is that when a company has not kept pace with the market, it feels the consequences gradually rather than at once. Therefore, on the one hand, it is difficult to isolate the specific reason, and on the other hand, it is difficult to justify upgrade investment effect economically.
