Despite whether you realize it or not, if you are in business as a realtor, you are already a brand. That has as much to do with the perception of your potential clients as it has to do with how your business views itself. Common perceptions tend to suggest that a brand is related to a product or service but this is not always the case as many people and their personalities are, in fact, the brand.
To brand or not to brand
Any company that is either starting out or reviewing their marketing strategy is in an ideal position to consider the above question. Should they promote their services or products as the brand or do they themselves strive to be the brand itself? Relators, in particular, are more likely to benefit from “being the brand” as they deal with a large cross-section of property types and individuals. Through a clear perception of their brand, clients will be more prone to trust them and place confidence in the properties that they are marketing.
So what components fit into your brand?
As we have pointed out already, your business is already being perceived in a certain way by those who are coming into contact with it. Whilst logos and “branding” have a strong part to play, your brand can also be a reflection of the total ethos of the business. Businesses that are serious about branding themselves also need to be asking questions about their goals in relation to the whole picture.
Being the brand is much more than deciding what colours to use in the company logo, it is about perception of how your potential clients see your business, and the impression that you are sending out. Just as individuals and groups have and express a personality, your business is doing the same. Your branding should also be planned and executed with your long-term goals and business aims firmly in mind.
Practicalities of being your brand
Whether a business chooses to brand itself or to make the brand about products/services, there will need to be some uniformity right across the board from signage and logos to the company website. Utilising a company that provides professional media service such as video and quality photography can make a huge difference to how successful your branding is. Just like the business itself, branding awareness is something that grows over time and this calls for consistency.
