Chapter 1

An Overview of Branding

A brand for a company is like a reputation for a person. You earn reputation by trying to do hard things well. Jeff Bezos.

The concept of Branding has existed for thousands of years and it has evolved over the centuries. In Ancient Egypt, in order to differentiate their products from others masons engraved symbols (called stonecutters’ signs) on the bricks they produced for the pyramids and other construction projects which were led by the Pharaoh. Creating a brand or branding has evolved and broadened to include other areas ever since the word was first introduced. Despite the transformation, each of the older kinds of branding is still widely used today.

Mark burned on cattle to differentiate it

By the 15th Century the meaning of branding had changed to refer to a mark burned on cattle to differentiate it from others and to show ownership so that when their animals got missing the owners could easily identify them. Each brand had to be simple, unique, and easy to identify easily and quickly. These are essential traits that are still common to modern day brands.

Branding in order to create a Mark of Quality

In the 18th century there was a rise in mass production and the shipment of goods. Wine products began to experience larger batches and wider distribution and so producers began embossing their mark onto crates and cases of goods to distinguish themselves and their products from their competition. With time brands evolved into symbols of quality rather than ownership. In 1870, it became possible to register a trademark in order to prevent competitors from creating similar products. In 1905 Brands like Coca Cola produced slogans such as, Coca Cola Revives and Sustains, promising functional benefits. The functional benefits made the brand valuable.

The Rise of the Mass Media

The introduction of radio and television gave manufacturers and producers new ways to create demand for their products. In 1928, Edward Bernays published a book called Propaganda. Bernays argued that by associating products with ideas large numbers of people could be persuaded to change their behavior. The book became very popular, and Madison Avenue utilized it. By the 1960’s, marketers were using mass media to associate brands with emotional benefits rather than functional ones. Advertisements showed how using a particular brand would make you more desirable, part of an exclusive club, or as Coca Cola promised in 1979 with, Have a Coke and a Smile!- Just happier.

Brand Recognition and identity

In the 19th century onwards manufacturing firms began to lay less emphasis on the product concept. Consumer choice was widened with an array of products from which to choose from. Companies began to build brand recognition and identity rather than depending solely on what is referred to as the product concept in marketing. Companies began to build brand loyalty that extended across product lines and gave their consumers emotional benefits, a sense of belonging and personal satisfaction and customer delight. Advertising agencies began to engage in brand consultancies. In the long run corporate branding extended to non-profits, political groups, and even personal brands for celebrities.

Branding in the age of Social Media

The rise of the internet and social media is driving the next stage of the evolution of branding. Unlike consumers of the past, internet users of the modern economy aren’t satisfied to merely consume; they want to be part of the action. Social media brands like YouTube and Facebook rely on their users to help establish their value and how they are perceived by the public. Content sites like Amazon depend on reviewers to provide their most persuasive content. Although internet-based companies give up some of the control of their brand image, the loyalty from an actively participating customer base is unparalleled. Search engine optimization, and outsourced delivery allow organizations to gain visibility and deliver products without spending millions on advertising and infrastructure.

A few years ago most companies heralded the arrival of a new golden age of branding. Creative agencies and great technologists were hired to propagate brands throughout the digital universe. Companies invested in creating what is often called branded content.

The definition of Branding

Branding is endowing products and services with the power of a brand. (Kotler & Keller, 2015).

•Branding is the process of giving a meaning to specific organization, company, products or services by creating and shaping a brand in consumers’ minds.

•Branding is a strategy designed by organizations to help people to quickly identify and experience their brand, and give them a reason to choose their products over the competitions, by clarifying what this particular brand is and is not.

What is a brand?

A brand is a name, term, design, symbol, or any other feature that identifies one sellers good or service as distinct from those of other sellers (American Marketing Association).

•In the book Principles of Marketing (Philip Kotler/Gary Armstrong) a brand is defined as a name, term, sign symbol (or a combination of these) that identifies the maker or seller of the product.

•According to Philip Kotler, A brand is essentially a sellers promise to consistently deliver a certain set of features, benefits and services to the buyers.

•A brand is also a promise.

A brand is the set of expectations, memories, stories and relationships that, taken together, account for a consumer’s decision to choose one product or service over another. Seth Godin.

•A brand is a name, term, sign, symbol or design or a combination of them, intended to identify the goods or services of one seller or group
