What is branding?

Your brand is your promise to your customer. It tells them what they can expect from your products and services, and it differentiates your offering from that of your competitors. Your brand is derived from who you are, who you want to be and who people perceive you to be. Successful companies differentiate themselves through their brands by staying true to their brand promise and by building sustainable long-term relationships with their consumers. Individuals do the same: we differentiate ourselves to potential employers and industry professionals through our personalities, appearance, and professionalism.
