  • Brands have three primary functions: 1. Navigation Brands help consumers choose from a bewildering array of choices. 2. Reassurance Brands communicate the intrinsic quality of the product or service and reassure customers that they’ve made the right choice. 3. Engagement Brands use distinctive imagery, language, and associations to encourage customers to identify with the brand. David Haigh, CEO, Brand FinanceTuesday, January 17, 2012
  • On an average day consumers are exposed to 6,000 advertisements and, each year, to more than 25,000 new products. Brands help consumers cut through the proliferation of choices available in every product and service category. Scott M. Davis, Brand Asset ManagementTuesday, January 17, 2012
