Steps to improve builders’ reputation
Branding: If you have a logo or brand that you have patented and want it to be popular, there is no other shortcut but branding through marketing. Whatever revenue you have been earning through your business, you need to spend at least 1% to 2% on the marketing of that brand you have already created. If you don’t want to end up spending a lot and be left with nothing for future work, it is important that you set a budget that will be easier for you to determine the expenditure that you want to know. The plus minus gets easier this way. Name one company that has rose to that height without any marketing strategy. There hardly is any. It is high time that you invest on marketing for better and higher returns in future. With marketing, people will know that you are professional and can be trusted.
Network: There can be instances where a builder is doing pretty well but he is not getting the limelight. For that matter, you need to get the right attention at the right time. There is no better time than networking with important people who may be your prospective clients or help you fetch prospective clients. Attending meetings and seminars of properties where you get to know about the market trend and buyer’s potential of buying property calls for a great leap in your career as a builder. Many people misinterpret builders to be profit-oriented and not customer-oriented. It is a myth and you being a builder need to prove this wrong.
Does the logo portray a transparent picture? Well, many people find logos to be fancy and colorful. Do you really know the meaning of it or explain it to the clients if need be. Be ready for that as many clients are inquisitive and asking such random questions, these buyers gauge your ability to deal with customers. In short, the logo or banner you use should be a replica of what your mind thinks. It should represent you and your work.
Quality Matters: When you have projects at hand, ensure that you deliver quality. In the long run, it is the quality that matters because people will talk about the quality and materials used. If a building doesn’t sustain the weather conditions and loses its beauty easily, it will be difficult for the builder to sustain the reputation. Once you construct the name, you will have a reputation that no one can break or shatter as once reputed is always reputed in real estate business.
Online Availability: There are many ventures and companies that work for your brands online for a meagre amount. You can do that. This method is the cheapest method to get the best traffic to your website and get more and more people talking. When you build a good rapport online, you are the King. Online image management is one of the greatest keys to success and reputation. Online image management is crucial at the same time. Once someone writes or says ill about you, it might spread like wild fire. Make sure the agency you hire is reputed enough in getting the site rank higher in all aspect.
Less is More: Have you heard of this trending phrase “Less is More”. This indicates that anything that is used less signifies more. Don’t believe in numbers of delivery. Believe in delivering less but with exceptional finesse and meticulousness. On-time delivery also works well in the concept of Less is More because you are delivering without stretching the estimated turn-around time. This way, people start building trust in you and like any advertisement word of mouth will start spreading and making your popular and reputed eventually.
First Impression is always the last: When you get your first project of building a commercial or residential complex, ensure that you give the best in it. People judge you from your first output. If the output is great, you will not have to spend on the rest of the methods discussed but if it doesn’t, then each should be followed religiously. You can’t miss grabbing the opportunity in the best possible way. If you miss it, you miss the game.
Builders are saviours to people who want spaces for work or stay. To catch the attention of the people, you need to be on your toes so that you are observed and talked about by people. You should be the name whom they trust for the property. You should be the one who attracts buyers and not the ones who approach the buyers.
Good luck for your initiative.
