What business couldn’t use an update every now and then? AlphaGraphics will be making that happen for 3 lucky businesses. But even if you don’t win the makeover, we’ve got 4 simple steps that can refresh and revitalize your business.
#1 Update Designs
Ever feel that your brand is a little outdated or stale? A graphic design refresh can put a modern spin on your brand to help you stand out and feel current. Skilled graphic designers can work with you to accentuate what makes you unique then communicate it visually in ways that captivate and leave a lasting impression.
Good branding is more than just an eye-popping logo. Branding includes fonts, colors, imagery, even the tone of voice you use in written marketing materials. Even the biggest companies occasionally update the elements of their brand. Refreshing the elements of your brand will allow you to keep your business materials consistent.
#2 Refresh Print Collateral
Once your branding is cohesive, it’s important to make sure that it’s reinforced at every customer touchpoint. Start by auditing your printed pieces. Things like business cards, brochures, flyers, menus, even forms, all need to be consistently branded. Pieces that look (or sound) outdated are ripe for a refresh.
Maybe all that’s needed is to update the elements of your printed materials (things like logo, colors, fonts). Or maybe it’s time to create entirely new pieces that more effectively represent your business and communicate your value proposition in contemporary ways. Refreshing all printed pieces is a key component of any business makeover.
#3 Rethink Signage
How attractive and effective is the signage for your business? Are your exterior graphics faded or damaged? Are your interior graphics eye-catching and informative? If not, a signage refresh may be needed.
Signage that is well thought-out, beautifully designed, and properly installed can enhance your customers’ experience and reinforce your brand. An experienced sign expert can help you identify the best types of signs for each part of your business to ensure that every inch of your space is being used to strengthen your branding and drive sales.
#4 Spread the Word
Once you have your brand revitalized and have refreshed your printed materials and signs, it’s time to let the world know. There are lots of digital marketing tools available to help you connect your business with prospective customers.
Depending on your business goals, your digital strategy might include display ads, multi-channel marketing campaigns, or a ramped up social media presence. The marketing pros at AlphaGraphics have teamed up with Marketing 360® to offer a bevy of digital marketing services to complement your print and mail campaigns.
