Consumer Electronics – the art of interacting with your customers
Even major global retailers and brands can struggle with ensuring consistency; whether it be with their brand name, logo, messaging & strap-line and even their products.
Look at the hair removal brand formerly known as Immac. Immac has used several names in different countries; the ‘Veet’ name was established in 1922 in the UK. The name was used in some European countries, but was not used globally.
For example, while the product was sold as ‘Veet‘ in France, the product was sold in Canada and the United States as Neet until 2002, when the Veet name was first used commercially in those countries. The UK used Immac and saw a huge education piece needed to retain market-share when the re-naming was launched. Such brand inconsistencies may well affect sales and brand loyalty so achieving consistencies is vital.
As global travel becomes cheaper, easier and more “the norm” consumers expect to see the brands they recognise and love “at home” in the same packaging, with the same branding and messaging and displayed in a recognisable format wherever they see it. There are few cautionary tales better than Gap’s logo re-design problem when it comes to the importance of staying true to your brand.
When Gap changed their logo, they wanted to create a new, modern image. Unfortunately, customers had grown attached to the simple and classic Gap square. As a global brand, a dramatic logo change to be rolled out across the world, introduced to loyal customers was no easy feat and potentially damaging.
