PostHeaderIcon How to Create a Great Logo for Real Estate Company

Creating a logo is one of ways to boost the branding a company. As a matter of fact, branding plays a crucial role in marketing because it is the key to get potential customers to realize that your company is the only one that can provide their desired product or service. A good brand is able to deliver a message clearly, confirm your credibility, motivates potential buyers, connect you to your potential buyers emotionally and strengthen buyer loyalty.

To have a good brand, you must create a good logo. In fact, when you should create a logo, you should follow some guidelines. There are surely guidelines to choose the size, font and color of your logo. Basically, logo guidelines help building clients trust. They enable clients to easily distinguish your real estate company from other competitors. Because only a company that can stand out of the rest will be chosen by most clients, your company should have an outstanding logo.

Then, logo guidelines help creating consistency with the identity and message of your real estate company. The professionalism of a company can be easily inferred from the willingness to create consistency. If a company has consistency, they are usually reliable.  Further, logo guidelines actually enable you to avoid unauthorized uses of your logo. Because your logo significantly influences the branding of your company, your logo should not be used by other parties in inappropriate ways. If you follow logo guidelines, you can avoid this to happen.

Examples of Logo and Trademark Guidelines

To help you have better understanding about logo and trademark guidelines, the followings are examples from Twitter, Facebook and the National Association of Realtors.

1.  Twitter

Twitter uses the Twitter bird as a logo that is shown in either blue or white, but never in black or other colors. Usually, the chosen color is based on the chosen background where blue is for light background while white is for dark background. The Twitter bird should always face right. The “T” in Twitter or Tweet should be written in capital letter. Click here to read more about Twitter’s logo guidelines.

2.  Facebook

The company provides the Facebook logo, the “F” logo and the Facebook “Like” Button. Basically, you are not allowed to use the Facebook logo. However, if you have a special case, you may ask for a special promotion to the company. In this case, you should not use the Facebook logo in place of the word “Facebook”. The use of “F” logo is to promote your Facebook page or group. It should not be used to link to the login page. The Facebook “Like” Button is to be used with the Like button social plugin. You must capitalize the word “Facebook”, expect when it is used as a part of a web address. Click here to read more about Facebook’s logo guidelines.

3.  National Association of Realtors®

The terms REALTOR®, REALTOR-ASSOCIATE®, REALTORS®, the REALTOR® Logo and the Block “R” mark are owned by National Association of Realtors. These are membership marks that are used to distinguish members from non members. All members must stand for a strict Code of Ethics and the highest standard of professionalism is expected from them.
