How Corporate Rebranding is Helping a Construction Company Build its Presence Online and in Print

A full-service design-build construction company had a strong portfolio of clients and photos of its many commercial construction projects in the NY metro area. However, the company had not updated its branding in many years and had no internet presence—and its impressive portfolio was not being used to the company’s benefit.

The website was not mobile-friendly, did not provide complete information about the company’s broad capabilities and excellent work, and it lacked keyword optimization and a convenient lead generation form for inquiries. The logo was old and there was no social media presence. The firm’s principals approached Rapunzel Creative for fresh branding that reflects its deliverables in a compelling, contemporary way that also enables them to compete effectively in their market.

The project

  • Create a new, modern brand that strengthens the company’s image in alignment with its strong portfolio
  • Develop a website that is well designed and SEO-driven to showcase the company’s work and highlight different clients and the verticals they represent
  • Design marketing collateral that supports sales efforts and ties directly to digital

The Rapunzel team developed a full suite of marketing assets for this branding project: an impactful logo, a new website with strong messaging and SEO copy, social media branding, a capabilities brochure, and business cards. All of these marketing pieces reposition the company as a strong choice vis-à-vis its competitors in the NY and NJ market.

The value and importance of business branding in the digital marketing era

The value of consistent branding, especially in digital branding and marketing, cannot be understated—with the website serving as the marketing hub. The days of handshakes and personal relationships first is shifting to a younger generation of decision makers going online first to research vendors, suppliers, and contractors. Prospective clients, government contractors, and potential partners visit a website to assess credibility and will make a quick judgment on whether to proceed based on what they see. It is crucial to be perceived as polished and professional in every way, right away, with a brand image that’s attractive and appealing to your target audience.

The website must clearly convey what your business does and with whom, and all digital marketing assets (website, social media pages) must provide all the information visitors need to get the full picture quickly and consistently across platforms. In short, a strong, well-branded website will not only get more notice but in the long run, more conversions as well—sales calls, inquiries, lead generation form completions.
