Consumers make buying decisions every day. Product brands can help them to decide which product to buy. This is because they allow the consumer to make a connection between the product and the manufacturer, the quality, the origin and the price. Manufacturers individualise their products or services through trade marks and their depiction of them. Here, entrepreneurs tell about their own brand strategy experiences.
