What is the difference between real estate branding and commercial real estate marketing, and how do you create value that drives sales? Let’s take a look at one of the most recognizable global brands, Coca-Cola as an example, to find out how to build a successful brand. The Coca-Cola brand has never strayed from its timeless and basic ideals for over a century. When you think of the brand, you think of more than just the product. The consumer thinks of the gorgeous font, and the spirit of the company. The brand has stayed true to their very simple but strong and effective global messages such as “Enjoy”, “Share”, and “Happiness in a bottle”. The brand messages are a consistent push, not a pull.
To put it simply, branding is strategic while marketing is tactical. The most successful brands have a thorough understanding of their target audience, what their interests are, and exactly how they like to communicate. Positioning your brand for competitive differentiation and building a unique identity are two very important factors in commercial real estate branding. A very basic way to plan your brand identity is to focus on these three factors below.

When done right, the brand voice is what the final impression is for your would-be-customer.
Branding plays such an important role in generating business and sustaining growth. The top companies always have a strong brand that differentiates itself from its competitors thus leading to an advantageous place in the market.
