What is Branding Name Find out the most suitable tool What it Takes to build a Brand ? Brand Ambassador Umbrella Brand

• What is Branding Brand is the proprietary visual, emotional, rational, and cultural image that you associate with a company or a product. When you think Air-tel, you might think telecommunication. When you think Amul, you might think of Milk products or "The test of India." When you think Sony, you might think "Electric Producs." The fact that you remember the brand name and have positive associations with that brand makes your product selection easier and enhances the value and satisfaction you get from the product.

• Naam me bahot kuch rakka hai...! A great brand name is one of the most powerful forces in branding, marketing and advertising. It is at once the story about what makes you different from your competitors and the emotional tug that connects you with your audience.

• What it Takes to build a Brand ? - Consistency - Product Performance - Service Performance - Advertising - Identify Customer Touch Points - Assess the Communication Need - Measure and Improve

• Brand Ambassador A brand ambassador a well-connected person or a celebrity who is used to promote and advertise a product or service. A company achieves some clear-cut goals by using a brand ambassador. It works out in building brand loyalty, as the consumer may have interest on that particular celebrity. So when he or she would see that celebrity on an advertisement, then that person could get motivated to use that product or service, as a respected person is involved.

• Umbrella Brand An umbrella brand is a parent brand that appears on a number of products that may each have separate brand images.

There is great beauty in simplicity. That which is simple is close to Truth.
