What is a successful Brand and importance of branding?

Branding is very important part of marketing and it is very hard for any marketing strategy to succeed if it fails to create a successful brand. Every year, millions of companies from across the world spend billions of dollar on creating successful brands because people around the world believes in buying a branded product rather then just buying an ordinary and unbranded product. Generally, a branded product has more value and trust associated with it than a non branded product. Therefore, every company works in direction to make their product a successful brand. To do this, they get help of branding which helps in promoting brand name and creating a good image for brand. Now here you may ask this question what is a brand? Below, I will discuss and try to define a brand so that you can understand what is a brand?

A Brand- A brand gives an identity to product or service or anything unique. A product, a service, a company, a person, a place or anything which has unique properties associated with it and it is popular for these properties comes under the category of brands. For example, Coca Cola is a brand name of Coca Cola Company which deals in soft drinks and beverage products. Now if anybody says Coca Cola then it remind us about Coca Cola Company and its products. ICICI is brand name of ICICI bank and its associated services. When we hear ICICI then we know that someone is talking about ICICI bank or its related services. Other examples of brands are Honda, Maruti, Parachute, CNN, NDTV, Cadbury, Nirma, Surf, Reebok etc. People also become a successful brand when they become very successful like Sachin Tendulkar. Sachin Tendulkar is a brand because he is very popular and also has many strong values associated with him. Sachin is known for his consistency, good performance and dependability. Therefore, many companies take him in their advertisements because they want that people should also start considering their product a good product. A place can also become a brand when it represents something unique and it is popular for this uniqueness. For example, Shimla is a brand name in itself because it represents a popular hill station, now when we think about Shimla then an image of beautiful Hill Station comes in our mind.

Branding- Branding is technique and methods used to establish an unknown product as successful brand. Through branding any product, service, company, place or person can be associated with certain properties and made popular across the world for them. A good advertising and promotional strategy is required for making a successful brand. When people read or see a product many times then they start associating with it. Sometimes, they become so indulged in particular brand that they start calling particular service or item with this brand name. For many people still call washing powder as surf because of strong branding of Surf as washing powder in India by Unilever. Similarly many people still call coconut oil parachute oil and they trust parachute as best coconut oil because of strong branding by MARICO. Therefore, with strong branding any product can be associated with particular properties, services or unique things. Branding is very important for making any product a successful brand which people remember for years and love to associate with it again and again.

In Nepal, a new Buddha is in making. Recently a person called Ram Bahadur Bomjon from Nepal has been fasting and meditating for the last six months beneath a tree. In him, people are seeing a new Buddha. This incident has happened in the Bara district of Nepal. Thousands of pilgrims have started visiting this place. There is news that Ram has not broken his fast  even a single time .  For the last six months, he has not moved, even to relieve himself.

15-year-old Buddha to Controversial Figure

Fourteen Years Back, I wrote this article that A new 15-year-old Buddha . I wrote this article after reading a piece of news about a 15-year-old boy, Ram Bahadur Bomjon. At that time, people were worshiping him as a new Budhha or as an incarnation of Buddha. In both Hinduism and Buddhism, it is common to find the concept of rebirth or incarnation, and sometimes, these concepts or beliefs are misused by others. The action of meditation under a tree for straight six of a 15-year-old boy Ram Bahadur forced people to believe that he is not an ordinary man and he must be an incarnation of Buddha.  Many such things and articles were written about him and soon, Ram Bahadur Bomjon become a renowned spiritual leader or Guru. However, after fourteen years, I see his life is marked with many controversies like missing devotees.  Ram Bahadur Bomjom came to the limelight when he claimed to have meditated without moving from his place and without eating anything for months under a tree. People start

Benefit of Adding Fastag to the Vehicle (Paytm Fastag)

  Today, India is progressing in every field and we are seeing many new improvements coming to our lives. One such improvement is mandatory to use of fastag on all vehicles in India. With this change, we can see the saving of time of commuters and saving of valuable fuel. As per the Indian transport minister, with the use of fastag on vehicles, we can hope to see a saving of Rs 20,000 crore. I hope that it will improve the management of vehicles on the various toll plazas. I have many bad experiences on various toll plazas due to manual operation and high rush.  Already, toll collectors and people are finding this scheme of fastag very helpful. I have already installed fastag on my both vehicles two years back. So far, Paytm fastag is the most used fastag in India because it is linked to the Paytm wallet which makes it easy to add cash and make payments. I am also using Paytm Fastag on one of my main vehicles and my experience is very smooth with it. It is very easy to buy Paytm Fasta
