What is Branding?
Branding 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 in identifying the product and distinguishing it from other products and services. Branding is important because it not only makes an unforgettable impression on consumers, but it lets your customers and clients know what to expect from your company. It is a way to differentiate yourself from the competitors and clarify what you have to offer which makes you the better choice. Your brand is built to be a representative of who you are as a company, and how you would like to be seen.

- Brand creation builds trust between you and your customers: Proving credibility reinforces the feeling that this business or project is good, reputable, and consistent in its field.
- Branding supports and assists with making ads: Advertising helps both the chosen medium and the targeted advertising demographic in building a brand.
