What is Branding

A unique and great business idea is not necessarily enough for business success unless you know how to present it with proper branding in the market. Famous worldwide companies are not just famous because they manufacture quality and standard products but also for their effective branding of their businesses and products.

Before discussing its importance and benefits, let’s first understand what branding is and why branding is important for a business.A brand is an identity of the company that clarifies what is the business and what’s its mission.In simple words it is an identity of a business consisting of its name logo, values, tagline, etc.

Branding is the process of creating an identity of the company.In this process we research,develop and apply distinctive features to our business. In common language it is a process in which we create a brand by creating a business name, logo, voice, and identity.


In this era of business branding is very important to grow and to get a strong position in market.Branding is the key to create an strong image of your business in customer’s mind.Gerald Zaltman is a Harvard professor who has written the book “How Customers Think: Essential Insights into the Mind of the Market.” In it, he claims that 95% of customer purchasing decisions are subconscious. which means 95% of the customers’ decisions will be driven by those factors that are mainly created by your branding and how the customers feel about your company, only 5% of other factors (price, etc.) will affect the purchase decision of customers.

2. Creates Business Identity

Branding creates a strong business identity. There are many stationary companies but you don’t even know the business name of these companies but when I say dollar stationary you can easily recognize it. This is because dollar stationary has built a strong brand through the process of branding.
