QUESTIONS TO ASK

WHEN RE-BRANDING

  • What perception does the brand convey?
  • Does it convey the core messages you want to express?
  • Does it elicit the gut feeling you want?
  • Does it establish trust and build credibility?
  • Does it convey your agency values?
  • Does it clearly communicate your organization’s mission?
slide17

TRUST

  • Trust in the skills and experience of the marketing firm
  • professionals.
  • Trust in your lay skills and opinions – don’t underestimate your
  • ability.
slide18

KNOW YOUR AUDIENCE

  • Parents.
  • School staff.
  • Community at-large.
  • Funders.
  • Partners.
  • Volunteers.
slide19

RE-BRANDING MAY REQUIRE

  • Patience.
  • Understanding.
  • Adaptability.
slide20

TIME

  • Take adequate time to plan the rebrand. You want it to be right
  • because you’ll live with it for a long time.
  • There’s never enough time or the right time. However, select the
  • best time possible.
  • Don’t let lack of time keep you from rebranding.
  • Allow more time than you anticipate if you’ll use input from
  • others. Re-branding can’t be rushed.
slide21

STAFF INPUT

  • Involve staff who represent different disciplines.
  • Get input from your staff “on the ground” about ways to roll out
  • the name.
  • Convene a committee to help rate the logos and consult during the
  • rebranding process. Remember, you can’t involve every employee
  • in the process. Committee can include:
      • board member,
      • executive staff,
      • management,
      • operations and,
      • support staff.
slide22

CREATING A SBHC MARKETING PLAN

  • Begin by developing a SWOT (Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats) Analysis.
  • Your Community Advisory Committee can assist in examining where your SBHC is now (strengths & weaknesses) and where you want to be in the future (opportunities & threats).
  • Use EMR data to determine who you are serving and who you want to serve. How can you best reach them?
  • Set realistic and quantifiable goals. Where do you want to be in six months? One year? Five years?
