Branding: Stepping Back in Time

Most you folks have heard of the term branded meaning as branding of livestock or some kind of cattle, in order to be able to identify ownership. Like they done did back in them cowboys and Indian days. You know what I'm talking about, "The Wild Wild West." Keep up with me now, you hear? You wanna know what is branding about right? You are here to learn how to understand the big picture ain't ya? Well a long time ago...


A Long, Long, Long Time Ago

To be honest with you, we gotta go much further back in time to get the full understand of what branding is all about. We're going back to the ancient Romans and Egyptians days, back to when that bible character moses was setting free the slaves and splitting The Red Sea.

You better believe in this, branding was a serious issue back then. They were marking their livestock with all kind of symbols, poking them with hot rods, scaring them to keep their eyes on their territory, ruthless folks I tell ya.

Go head, take a peek at what they say about branding at Wikipedia, I'll be waiting right here for ya. I'ma lay it on ya old school style when you come back, we'll talk about how branding crept into our modern day world and found its way into our businesses. The nevers of some things, right?

Most people, sometimes in their lives, stumble across truth. Most jump up, brush themselves off, and hurry on about their business as if nothing happened. -Winston Churchill


Branding Concept

Welcome back, I see you didn't get lost up in Wikipedia, I was afraid to send your butt over there. Sometimes I get it mixed up with that hell hole Wikileaks. That place will have you running out of there leaking your information all over yourself. That their brand you know, messing up your personal brand.

Thats right, branding is more that just a name, it's a set of marketing communication methods, that help distinguish a company from its competitors. It creates a lasting impression in the mind of customers. I know you read that over in Wikipedia, it worth mentioning twice.

Branding crawled its way into our businesses by way of trademarks. That's just my fancy way of saying branding is your company's logo, it name, and your business identity. You get it now, right? Let's move on to the next step.

Hi Craqers, thank you for taking the training and answering the question. Of the back, you must be a Mustang fan, or they ar doing a great job at branding the name. The second brand is Audi, I pick them because people on remember them when the see their commercials.

My two brands are of course the seconds2work.com and Wealthy Affiliate. seconds2work is my personal brand, and anytime I take on a job or do any kind of work for anyone, I take ownership.

I treat a job as if it was my own business, by that I mean that I put my whole heart into it. The way I talk to the client, employees', or anyone the walks through the door gets the same treatment.

It helps also with branding your company, wheater it is an affiliate program or your own company you must brand yourself in a way that it reflects back to you.

Thank you again, so far you are the only one to follow the instructions in this training. Keep moving forward and you will go far.

God bless
LeNard
