Branding concept

Are you ready to brand your company?

As a business owner, you've probably heard a lot of talk about branding and how it's essential for success. But what exactly is a brand? Marketing master and New York University instructor, Jim Joseph, has one of the best yet simplest explanations: you need a product but you want a brand. Say you're a coffee drinker.
