Obviously, branding is simply the things we do to uplift or define the nature or style of our business ranging from any unique means of identification given to our business from start till it reaches the end product user who requests for the product over others. Branding can be the logo of your business, color, style, images, language and many others. What you identify a product with is a part of the products brand either through the logo, the name and more of this nature.
