Branding Definition

Jobber (2006) defines branding as an attribute of a product or service, as its distinctive offer created by the use of a name, symbol, design, packaging, or some combination of these intended to differentiate it from its competitors. Branding can also be defined as the complete process by which organisations aim to build a unique name and image for a product/service in the minds of consumers, and to establish a significant and differentiated existence in the marketplace that attracts and retains loyal customers (Kotler and Keller, 2006).
