What's the difference between branding and marketing?

Branding and marketing are intertwined, but different. Branding should both precede and underlie any marketing efforts. Branding is the look, feel and voice — the personality — of an organization, product, or service. Marketing, on the other hand, refers to the system, tactics and tools you utilize to deliver the message of your brand. These might include SEO, ads, social media campaigns, and so on. Many companies invest in expensive marketing campaigns, which fail or fall short because of poor branding. Red Ape Media will help ensure your branding and marketing are both set up for success.

Branding is the backbone of your marketing strategy since it establishes the tone by which your target audience will interact with your company. Increased revenue and customer retention are possible outcomes of building a trustworthy and credible brand. On the other side, marketing entails getting the word out about your goods and services in order to sell them to potential customers. Marketing is the process of using various methods to interact with your target audience.

Successful branding and marketing work hand in hand when it comes to establishing and expanding a company’s market presence. The success of your advertising will be diminished if your brand is weak. When your brand is well defined, you can differentiate yourself from the competition and strike an emotional chord with your ideal customers. This, in turn, has the potential to promote client loyalty and word-of-mouth marketing.
