6 What is a brand? The word “brand” is derived from the Old Norse word “brandr,” which means “to burn.” According to the AMA, a brand is a “name, term, sign, symbol, or design, or combination of them intended to identify the goods and services of one seller or group of sellers and to differentiate them from those of competition.”

7 What distinguishes a product from a brand? A product is any entity offered to a market for attention, acquisition, use or consumption that might satisfy a need or want (Kotler,2000). A brand is the sum total of consumers’ perceptions and feelings about the product’s attributes and how they perform, about the brand name and what it stands for, and about the company associated with the brand. (Achenbaum, 1993)
