Understand and build your branding

Your branding is a key aspect of your real estate business. It's the first impression you make to potential new clients, and what sets you apart from the competition. Your brand should reflect your values, personality, and unique selling proposition.

What is Branding? Keep in mind that branding is more than just a logo. It’s definitely your visual image, but also how you communicate, and how you make your brand recognisable.

Key Branding Elements

  • Logo - a design adopted by an organization to identify its brand or product.
  • Color Palette - a set of colours that represent your brand personality.
  • Brand Voice - the personality your brand takes on its communications, it will serve as a guide of what to say and how to say it.

Pro tip 💡

  1. Start by defining your brand’s personality - this will shape your brand voice: the way you communicate through different channels.
  2. Craft a unique visual image - you probably already have a logo, now it is time for the colour palette and typography that will be present in every visual product.
  3. Be consistent - Consistency is key; ensure all your marketing materials reflect your brand.

Whether it's Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, or Twitter, make sure your content is consistent, informative, and visually appealing. Share success stories, behind-the-scenes glimpses, and community insights to foster trust and engagement. Read further down this article to learn more about this
