Branding is how the public perceives your brand. It’s the personality of your brand, it’s your identity.
According to brandingmag, by definition, is a marketing practice in which a company creates a name, symbol or design that is easily identifiable as belonging to the company. This helps to identify a product and distinguish it from other products and services.
Some tend to confuse branding with notoriety. Error! Notoriety represents the popularity of your brand especially since you have to work on your brand before you work on your reputation. It makes more sense to be well perceived before you become famous because once you are known from an angle, it is difficult to erase this idea in the mind of your audience. So, think first of all about your brand image that most often triggers your notoriety. How do you get a good brand?
