Have you ever thought about powerful marketing can be in real estate development and construction? It is precisely this fabulous duo that triggers the effective and successful realization of a purchase decision.
Marketing is a tool known to be involved in market research, the development of sales strategies, and the analysis of metrics. Whatever the organizational typology, it is essential to resort to actions that allow building the profile of the buyer persona (the ideal customer model that a company has), making a list of objectives, outlining the path to follow, and observing the results (positive or negative), is elementary.
In an arid terrain as the construction industry may seem, the application of tools belonging to marketing, in its range of options such as B2B -business to business- or also known as B2C -business to consumer-, stand as bulwarks against unrealized sales, unreached potential customers and unfulfilled budgets.
If we are talking about a construction company whose stakeholders -strategic customers- are other companies, we are talking about the B2B sales process. In this case, it is of utmost importance to understand where the opportunity and complexity of this marketing technique lie.
As we already know, when engaging in a dialogue with a large organization, we are not only faced with a large group of people involved in decision-making but also with a much colder and more strategic attitude when it comes to saying yes at the time of purchase.
For this reason, there are at least five stages that must be during the implementation of B2B:

If the B2B world were purely and exclusively rational, in B2C, the mobilizing reason would be emotional. In other words, the emotional perception depends solely on how well the company connects with people's most sensitive side.
Within the company-consumer universe, sales are of lower value and much more impulsive due to the psychological factor involved in goods and services that are in free supply and demand. In this sense, the person discards the selection by specific characteristics of the product but prefers to choose and buy something that involves an added value in terms of the heart: something that reminds him of good times, something that activates his positive emotions, or something that allows him to experience much more than a mere object of consumption. For this reason, in B2C marketing, communications are built on the values of subjectivity, emotion, and creativity.
Unlike B2B, this type of sales has a distinctive feature: it is on the sentimental experience of customers, so it can often happen that the analysis of marketing strategies in these cases is hard to carry out because hearts are still immune to metric X-rays. However, tools can help us to be closer to expectations. Some of them are:
