The Southern Hemisphere is enjoying the site of new buds and brightly coloured blossoms as the first signs of spring emerge. This signals the time to spring clean, declutter and reorganise. Use this season to breathe new life into your brand, update your brand elements and discard outdated branded materials. See our tips below to help you through the process of freshening up your brand:
Tip1: Check your letterheads
Tip 2: Revive your email signatures
Approximately 333.2 billion emails are sent daily. These are not all necessarily sent from your company but you wouldn’t want your email to get lost in the crowd. While email signatures carry valuable contact information that recipients may appreciate, they also provide an ideal branding platform to show off your brand. Email signatures also need to be given a fresh new look to continue to grab your recipient’s attention and reinforce your brand in every email correspondence your employees have with your customers. Once you’ve refreshed your company email signature, remember to share it across the organisation and ensure that every staff member is using the same version of the email signature to drive brand consistency.
Tip 3: Clean up your PowerPoint slide decks
Spend some time going through the slides and determine what information is important and what information can be deleted without losing valuable insight. Check the font, font colour and font size across all the slides to ensure brand consistency and remove any images that do not align with the brand. Once the deck is up-to-date, give employees access to the latest versions of the slide decks and remove any former versions that are saved in share drives or folders.
