If you do a Google search for “what is a brand,” you will find endless opinions from a wide variety of sources trying to nail down the definition.
The truth is, a brand is an elusive, visceral concept, not a tangible asset. Its value is measured through the emotional connections between a businesses and its customers, not with hard numbers on a spreadsheet. And this is precisely why building a strong business brand can be one of the most challenging tasks for any business owner.
Strong business brands aren’t built overnight.
