Landing page teardown: how NOT to do a rebrand

Front went through a rebrand and MAN did they kill their saltiness

Front, the shared inbox tool, recently went through a rebrand.

Rebrands are great when they help align you to a problem your customers have more effectively, but as you'll see in this teardown, if you don't get it right, you'll lose your saltiness.

And that's the opposite of what you want for high converting landing pages.

In this video, I'm joined by Pedro Cortes. Pedro's a consultant who helps SaaS Companies convert more visitors into customers through better messaging and positioning.

See Pedro and I teardown Envoy's landing page too (it does much better!)

Key Takeaways

  1. In a busy market where you're competing for share, focus on verticals until you're dominating
  2. Don't get swept up in the visual brand of your company too early – unless you're in a very visual market
  3. Beware of running awareness campaigns on pages that are great conversion opportunities
