If you are a real estate agent, then it is no different. If I could tell you a way to improve your overall branding of the business and to make people sit up and take notice, I know that you would jump at the chance.
Well, marketing is at the heart of every successful business and if you want to get your business name known and for it to become synonymous with real estate, then you need to invest a little first of all. Unfortunately, you can sing your own praises as much as you want but your potential customers would prefer to believe what someone else says about your business rather than from the horse’s mouth.
You need to have a business logo becuase it will help you to:
Increase your sales
Create an enhanced connection with your clients
Improve your credibility
A picture says so much more than words. If you are going to have a logo then make sure that it is a good one because it speaks volumes about your business. Your logo must reach out to clients in a positive way and your clients should remember it.
You mustn’t ever be tempted to copy your competitors’ logo because apart from the legal implications, it is likely that it will only remind people of your competitors and that is the last thing that you want to happen. It is worth employing a good graphic designer who can waft their genius and create a logo that will make people sit up and pay attention. It may cost you an arm and a leg but it could be one of the best investments you have made. Your logo should be so captivating that it requires few words.
If you hire a designer then you will probably avoid one of
the logo creators cardinal sins which are to over complicate the design. Simple designs are much more effective and easier to remember which is exactly what you want. A good designer will make sure that your logo will look consistent irrespective of the advertising medium. The chances are that your logo will appear on business cards, advertising literature, letter heads and who knows, maybe billboards too.
Do you have several strings to your business bow? Your logo must still complement any other companies that you manage or sub-brands if they are affiliated. The logo must provide a single projection of excellence.
Your logo must be interesting and it must make people resonate with it on a subconscious level. Too difficult and the client is likely to dismiss it at the very first glance. I mentioned that your logo should maintain a sense of consistency and colour is very important when your logo is being designed. Colours have different representations such as to indicate urgency, integrity or stability. Discuss what you are trying to portray with your designer.
You need to consider the longevity of your logo when having it designed. It needs to stand the test of time and also to speak out loudly about the permanence of your business. Don’t be tempted to emulate the latest fads as they are only very short-lived and your business needs to have a longer life span.
Your brand has to make it clear that you are different from other real estate agents. Whether you have ten competitors next to you on a busy high street, your logo and brand will be the one that people associate with honesty, integrity, forward thinking, professionalism etc.
You don’t want to blend in with the crowd, you need to stand out and become the market leader. It’s easier to follow suit and to do like your competitors do but as much as it is important to watch how well they are doing, don’t emulate them. Be your own real estate guru and let the others follow you.
From a marketing perspective, hire a professional to design any logos but after that, your business success is down to you.
