Business: Stop Being So Bland | Miss Pork Pie
It’s easy enough for a business to be bland. When you first think of your business idea, all you think about is what to follow. The money, the lifestyle, and everything else that might pop into your mind when you think about starting up your own business. But when it actually comes to it, and you have to think about every single last thing, all you really think about is getting your business up and running. There are so many little decisions that people make in quick succession, and it really does show when you look at a business. You can just tell when a business is going to be bland, and you can just tell when one isn’t going to connect with the community. We’ve also been onto a website that just looks so plain, with products that look subpar, and when you look at the social media pages, you can just tell that there’s no life in the business. If you really want to be one that makes it fully, you have to be one that’s vibrant, bright, and on the exciting side of things. That’s the best way of catching the attention of all of the people you need to catch, and we know just a few ways how you can do just that. So sit back and relax, and let us help you breathe some life into your business with these fresh ideas. Image Source A Rebrand This is something that all smaller businesses tend to stay away from. A rebrand is something big, and if you’re already struggling to maintain the brand that you have at the minute, you might wonder why it’s going to benefit you to go through a rebrand. Well, the logic should be simple. If you’ve been working on a brand for a year or more, and you’re just not having any success with it, then what would be the harm in trying a rebrand. It’s like giving yourself a second chance in the game, and it gives you the time to totally change your business image. So if you know you’re a bit bland at the minute, and the brand isn’t working for you at all, then this is the option for you. You could change the name slightly, and just go for a different angle completely. If you were to reburst into the business world as this bright colourful brand who was bringing something different to the table, then surely you would attract more attention. When a brand is dull and lifeless, a rebrand is definitely the way forward in our eyes. A Change Of Scenery A change of scenery is always good for anyone when they’re going through a rough patch. If you’re struggling with something in life, and you really want to get away from it all, all you ever think about is hopping on a plane, and never looking back. The same applies when thinking about business. Just as with your personal life, you would never actually jump ship and move away, there’s too much tying you down. Now we know you’ll be feeling the same with your business, but the benefits of moving would be all the same. You need to be in business central, and somewhere where your brand is going to be helped by the location. We’re thinking about the big cities, and the big benefits of this. There are so many business opportunities that could be found through moving to a city, you just have to have the guts to up and move your business. But if you do, we promise the benefits will be worth it, especially if you’re based in a small little town that no one has heard of at the minute. All you would need to do is find a place that suits your business, a size that suits it, and pick a week where you know you’re going to be able to get everything done. Be sure that it suits all of your staff as well. You don’t want to move to somewhere where hardly anyone can get to, just because it suits you! Fresh Ways Of Engaging With Customers Engaging with customers in the right way, is definitely one of the best things that a business can do. But is it always the best thing that companies do? No, it’s often the thing that they’re worst at, hence why so many companies around the world have such a bad reputation for customer service. But sometimes it’s what you can do on a deeper level, that will ensure that you engage with the right people for your business. For example, you could use a user testing platform to enable the right customers to come to your business, and to introduce you to a pool of people who will help better your business. User testing is something that’s seriously slept on when it comes business, and considering it could have such a profound effect on a company, we feel it is something you should all be using. But of course, there is the more basic side of customer interaction on a customer service level. The highest level of customer service should always be used, but maintaining it is not always easy. Being sure that you act on all complaints personally, and ask quick as possible, will allow you to keep a closer eye on it. Being The Lovable Brand To be a lovable brand, you have to be one that’s going to be loyal to customers. You have the be consistent in what you do, and you always have to be the best in what you do. Customers love consistency in all aspects of a business, and love when they know a business is going the extra mile for them. If you can master that, you’ll have the basis of a lovable brand. Then, you just need to work on being super modern and hip, and you’ll have people all from all over following your business! So, we hope you can take a couple of these tips of board, and help bring your business back to life!
