Standardize for Success
Once you've committed to updating your business image, be consistent. Don't redesign your company logo on your advertising materials and not update your business cards with the new image. If you update one store's look while ignoring other outdated locations, you won't be making as big of an impact as you could. If you have to start small, do so. Simply recognizing the need to update your business image is a big step. Talk to employees and customers about what you can update. If possible, contact customers who didn't buy from you and ask what you can change to become more appealing. Sometimes it's as simple as incorrect phone numbers or improper employee uniforms. Take the time to really evaluate what your brand is saying about you. Look forward and let your company image be a progressive display to current and potential customers.
Look for opportunities to grow your business through your brand. Don't let simple mistakes and outdated information hold you back from further business success. Create new ways to grow your brand and update existing campaigns to stay competitive!
