Rebranding is a concern shared by both fledgling and long-standing business owners. When and why to rebrand are consistently popular questions, regarding emerging and established brands. The steps involved in rebranding a business are really no different than any other kind of makeover. You simply evaluate what you’re working with and imagine how to make those materials better.
