“A brand is no longer what we tell the consumer it is-it is what consumers tell each other.”- Scott Cook.
Brand Communication is said to be successful when the consumer has a consistent, credible brand experience at all brand touchpoints, and makes them feel associated with the brand. When a brand starts communicating constantly it develops the trust of its consumers thereby resulting in positive word-of-mouth. Brand communication is not just a framework to be made, it’s a procedure to follow.
