Melissa Geertz is the Director of Marketing at Gray Solutions and over her year-and-a-half tenure at the company has overseen a complete rebrand of the system integrator. I had her on the podcast to discuss the scale of the rebranding project, including how to get executive and cross-company buy-in, what steps to take during the rebrand, and how to measure the qualitative and quantitative ROI of a rebrand. 

We also talk about the importance of authenticity to stand out in a crowded market. Melissa shares insights on how Gray Solutions used their company culture to guide the branding process. 

Key Takeaways
  • Establishing a unique brand identity is key to standing out in a crowded market.
  • A rebranding project can have a significant impact on growth if done authentically and with a unique point of view.
  • A unique rebrand can add to company culture and recruitment initiatives.
  • Measuring the ROI of a rebrand should focus on growth metrics, such as inbound traffic, conversions, and brand recognition.
  • Look at competitors to understand the space they're owning, but find your own unique brand identity and stay away from copying others.
  • Gain inspiration from outside industries to bring fresh ideas and perspectives to your rebranding project.
