What is branding?
Branding is a fundamental marketing concept that is often misunderstood by business owners.
According to Wikipedia:
“A brand is a “Name, term, design, symbol, or any other feature that identifies one seller’s good or service as distinct from those of other sellers.” Branding began as a way to tell one person’s cattle from another by means of a hot iron stamp.”
