Brainstorming a New Look and Rebrand

When we first started working with our junk removal client, we knew that a rebrand was necessary in order to stand out in a small market. We did extensive research on their competitors and analyzed the top junk removal companies in major cities across the US using SEMRush. This helped us understand what was working for their competitors and gave us ideas for our own rebranding strategy.

Competitive Research

I typically begin this part with a simple google search straight from the source. Let’s start with Dallas Texas as an example. Using the Keyword Subject “Junk Removal” and City “Dallas”. First we see some sponsored results from Google Ads at the top of the search query, and below that we start to see the top organic results. You can save the sponsored ads results with a screen shot to save for later if you ever want to run Google Ads in the future.

Performing competitive research and analyzing the online presence of top-ranking companies in your industry can provide valuable insights into what works and what doesn’t. Even if you’ve already undergone a rebranding, regularly reviewing and adjusting your branding strategy is crucial in today’s ever-changing market.

This is a great opportunity to start looking at how the site is structured in terms of their service pages, their high volume pages, their location pages, how their logo looks, the colors they chose, the call to actions, and also the offers.

Notice all the different pages they made for every little droplet of service that the junk removal business has to offer around the country.

Incorporating a Call To Action on every other section throughout your pages.

When rebranding a junk removal company, It is a good practice to check your competitors junk removal logos with their primary colors. They seem to make their logos fun and creative. I mean we are talking about junk here, how do you make this a fun clean experience for them?

Staying ahead of the game is crucial for success because your competitors may develop new marketing strategies that can pose a threat to your business.  One of the key takeaways from our rebranding experience was the importance of competitive research.  Checking out your competitors’ strategies and evaluating their triumphs (and slip-ups) can give you valuable insights and ideas to create a better marketing plan for your own business.

Creating a Landing Page and Website Design

We knew that having a solid branding strategy was only the first step. To truly stand out in the junk removal industry, we needed a website that was not only visually appealing but also optimized for conversions. That’s why we analyzed the top-ranking junk removal sites in the US for their local areas and took inspiration from them to create a design that would resonate with our target audience and encourage them to take action.

Company Website After

The company we were helping, started with a SquareSpace site before the transition, with a hard to spell name, that we won’t even mention.  Together we also carefully chose the colors, name, and logo for their business to ensure they aligned with their brand personality and would appeal to the ideal customers in their area. 

Notice the difference in appeal from the previous site, with more call to actions. Using an offer in the site to attract more online bookings. WordPress is our preferred way to build sites, for the SEO and customize design capabilities it brings us.

Having an online booking tool on your website is key to automating your business.  We noticed a few other sites using this online booking for junk removal including an offer to entice potential clients to increase conversions. You and your customer get a better experience this way and the conversion rate for this lead is like 90%. 

I believe in the saying “you play good if you look good,” having the right branding can make a huge difference in how your business is perceived.  If you plan on getting organic traffic in the long run, use SEO Tactics throughout the whole project. We made sure to use tactics throughout the entire project to increase our chances of getting organic traffic in the long run. We’ll delve more into SEO later on in this case study.

Some of the conversion settings in our ad’s were misconfigured during this time period, so there should be around 15 more conversions within this time period, which dramatically increases the cost per conversion. But luckily we had our CRM system to monitor the phone calls coming in so we had an alternative way to look at data besides google analytics and Google Ads, using Call Book Pro.

The second way is reaching out to local businesses and news sites in the area, creating high-quality, relevant content that linked back to our client’s website.
