oa Journal of Marketing - The giant sheds its skin : the starting point

Volume 2011, Issue 06

R200-million, R500-million - what are a few zeros among friends? Somewhere between those two figures is the cost of the massive Vodacom re-branding migration from blue to red. And they're not the only company to do so; even Didata - never one on the big marketing radar screen - has seen the value in re-evaluating and contemporising its decades-old look.

In time, it's our belief that the Vodacom exercise will become a case study on how to do it.
