Why Is Branding Important?
By Ibby Smith Stofer
You may have heard the expression; a picture is worth a thousand words. In business, the picture that comes to mind as you are considering a purchase is often the link that directs customers to their product or service. Think for a moment, if you will. When you think of frozen vegetables, tuna or peanuts what images and or names come to mind? For many Mr. Peanut, Charlie the Tuna, and the Jolly Green Giant are almost automatically chosen. Perhaps, that is why a company’s logo is the link used to aid customers to recall their products or services. But a logo or brand mark is just only one part of establishing a refined brand.
