No matter what you’ve been told, branding and positioning are not one in the same. Positioning helps customers associate a benefit with a product or service while branding is your company’s identity in the mind of the customer. While effective positioning can take place within a defined timeframe, branding is an ongoing process. Strong brands are always built on solid positioning.
Effective branding and positioning require market and competitive analysis, customer segmentation, product innovation and promotional tactics.
