|What Is Rebranding?
In general rebranding actually means we change name, symbol, tagline, logo, advertising for a existing brand.
But in software world Re-branding is different is little different, it’s like using backend engine/resources with new name.
So The company providing Backend engine is different and company offering services using engine is different.
|Why World is moving towards rebranding?
It’s now Become difficult to concentrate on both Sales as well as manufacturing simultaneously, either the company is sales driven or manufacturing driven.
Sales & Marketing companies are increasing their competency in finding new ways to reach customers and all the resources get exhausted for this.
Development companies are day by day investing in research as well as business logic.
So This is How This works:
Sales & Marketing companies now can register with these companies and can give a fixed cost or minimum revenue to market their services but with their own brand name. This is Actually Called Re-Branding in software world.
This Business Strategy will open doors for new entrepreneurs & indirectly create a space for new innovation.
