Branding & Marketing for Startups

 8 years ago    

Ever contemplated the difference between branding & marketing?

As a business owner what should you focus on; branding or marketing?

“Branding is the being.
Marketing is the doing.”

While branding is the promise you are making to your customers, marketing ensures that you attract new customers and make sure your old ones keep coming back. During the first few days on any startup, the onus is on the founder/owner to plan and implement proper branding & marketing strategies. In today’s world, one doesn’t need to be equipped with an MBA or be a rocket scientist to do it. There is also no one size fits all solution to this and as a business owner, it is extremely essential that one understands the difference between branding & marketing  and then use them together effectively to drive the business.

To help startup owners understand the difference and how they work together, in collaboration with Co.Lab.Orate, a co-working space , is organising a talk on ‘ Branding & Marketing for Startups’ with sessions by amazing speakers.
