Summary

GlobalTax is a tax preparation and consulting firm that had been in business for over 20 years. However, their brand had become outdated and was in need of a modern revamp to better reflect the professional and approachable nature of the company. Brand Vision Marketing was engaged by GlobalTax to modernize their brand, making it more professional and approachable. Through market research, competitor analysis and understanding the target audience, Brand Vision Marketing developed a new brand positioning, messaging, identity and brand launch plan that helped to position GlobalTax as a modern and professional tax preparation service. The new visual identity, color palette, and typography were all chosen to appeal to the target audience, primarily small business owners and individuals, and the younger generation of entrepreneurs. The result was a significant increase in brand awareness and customer acquisition, and the company was able to establish a clear and distinct positioning in the market.

The Steps:

The branding process for GlobalTax, executed by Brand Vision Marketing, was as follows:

- Market research and competitor analysis: The first step in the branding process for GlobalTax was to conduct market research and competitor analysis. This helped Brand Vision Marketing to gain insights into the tax preparation industry, understand the current market landscape and identify opportunities for the brand to differentiate itself. The research involved studying the target audience, their needs, and pain points, as well as analyzing the competitors in the industry, their strengths, and weaknesses. This helped the agency to understand the gap in the market and identify areas where GlobalTax could excel.

- Brand positioning: Based on the research, the brand positioning was developed to focus on the company's expertise and reliability. This helped to establish a clear and distinct positioning for the brand in the market. The positioning statement communicated the unique value proposition of the company, and how it could meet the target audience's needs better than competitors. This helped to set the foundation for the brand's messaging and identity.

- Brand messaging: The key messaging was also created to communicate the brand positioning, highlighting the company's experience and commitment to providing personalized service to each client. The messaging was crafted to resonate with the target audience and create a consistent and compelling narrative for the brand. This helped to create a clear and concise messaging that could be used across all touchpoints, from the website to social media and print materials.

- Brand identity: The next step was to create a new brand identity that would reflect the modernized positioning and messaging. This included redesigning the logo, updating the color palette, and creating new visual elements for the brand. The new identity was designed to be consistent with the brand's messaging and positioning, and to resonate with the target audience. The new visual elements were chosen to be modern, professional, and adaptable across various touchpoints.

- Brand guidelines: A set of brand guidelines was created to ensure consistency in the use of the brand across all touchpoints. These guidelines were designed to help ensure that the brand was used consistently and effectively across all communications, and included guidelines for the use of the logo, color palette, typography, and imagery. This helped to maintain the integrity of the brand over time and ensure that the messaging and positioning were communicated consistently.

- Brand launch plan: A comprehensive brand launch plan was developed to communicate the new branding to the target audience. This included a marketing campaign that utilized social media, email, and print advertising.

The color palette was also designed to be versatile and adaptable, so that it could be used effectively across a variety of touchpoints.

The typography was also chosen with the target audience in mind. A clean and modern sans-serif font was selected, as it was determined that this would appeal to the younger generation and create a sense of approachability and professionalism.
