Branding Defined

A brand is described as a term, sign, name, design or symbol or a mixture of them. The purpose of the brand is to identify one seller of goods and/or services and to identify the difference between them and another seller.

  • It confirms and validates your credibility
  • It motivates and encourages the buyer to buy your product/service
  • Seals customer loyalty
