CONCLUSION
‡ Rebranding should always clarify and refine your positioning. Your goal in rebranding should be to make it easier for customers and prospects to understand exactly why your company should be one of their top choices ‡ Rebranding should only be undertaken based on a proven need to alter course (e.g. newmarket, new trend, new product direction). Given changing market conditions, it may even be crucial. Rebranding should be based on sound strategy supported by facts related to sales and profits, not driven by organizational fatigue. Ideally, everything should be changed at once.

‡ Be prepared to lose some customers. The more dramatic the change of strategic course, the more customers will probably become alienated and abandon your product or service. No worries, as long as you embody and deliver on your new brand promise to the new target audience. Branding is about using mind share to win market share.
