Why rebrand your business

There are numerous reasons why you might decide to rebrand your business.

Here are a few:

  1. Your focus has changed – you are offering different products or services
  2. Your location has changed
  3. To stimulate growth
  4. To gain a competitive advantage
  5. To consoldiate several businesses
  6. Your existing name is too narrow
  7. Your existing name is too general
  8. Your business name is outdated
  9. You’ve got a name that’s now hindering growth
  10. Your business name is lost online
  11. People can’t remember, spell or pronounce your company’s name

Hands up of any of those apply? I am guilty of number 11. Originally my business was called “TcueWebs”, There is quite a logical reason behind that but when I was told “I can’t tell people about your business because I can’t say it” I realise it was time to change -fast.

And like you perhaps I was concerned that I would loose my supporters on Facebook and Twitter. But that wasn’t the case as the social media platforms will allow you to change your profile names. Facebook has a few provisos you will find but in essence don’t worry.
