Advice you’d like to share?

  • Begin brand strategy early – before architectural design – to avoid realizing you’re not sure who you built it for and why once it’s too late. Be targeted.
  • Always address quantitative factors in your brand strategy – such total addressable market analysis and demographic trends. Avoid decisions based purely on vocal opinions, legacy perceptions, and visual preferences. Be data-driven.
  • Deeply consider the competitive set and incorporate at least one truly differentiating feature that sets you apart and bolsters your brand story. Be unique and memorable.
  • Always consider: How can this asset benefit tenants and the local and global community? Be socially thoughtful and responsible.
  • Set specific leasing campaign goals, measure tactical performance regularly, and adjust when required – knowing what key performance indicators are most important to your plan’s success and why.
