Rebranding Tips for Small Businesses

Google Search Console

If you’re changing URLs or redoing your company name, it’s SUPER important to not lose all of that link history! In Google Search Console, you can switch the address inside its Settings section. But this takes a lot of preparation if you have a lot to lose from your original site. If you aren’t sure how to do this, it’s important to hire someone to do all of the technicals.

Google Analytics

If you aren’t even attached to GA, then let’s just get you connected. But if you’re already attached to Google Analytics, it’s time to migrate over to Google Analytics 4 anyway. And if you’re already in GA4, then you need to make sure the site itself is changed.

Telling Your Clients! 

Naturally, this is a must!! Tell the world about the new change as soon as possible, to cut down any confusion with referrals. Send them a branded email or even a small gift. Do a giveaway on social media to create buzz. Hell, send out a press release!

Telling Other Small Businesses! 

The final rebranding tip is another absolute necessity, that some might say is the most important. Potential clients and current clients are easier to convert to the change than vendors you’ve been working with for years. So make sure to announce it as soon as possible, especially to small businesses that have you on a referral list.
