What is a Brand?

This question has intrigued many thinkers until today. Here, I tried to give you a witty definition. Read the following:

Who is a marketer? Somebody who keeps talking and feels that everybody would listen.
What is a product? A product is something that keeps talking and nobody listens.
Who is a brand builder? Somebody who keeps talking while others naturally feel that it is worth to listen.
What is a brand? A brand is something to which people are eager to listen even when it is not talking.

Now think whether you are marketing a product or building a brand.

    Yes. A product may be anything, even it might be worthless. But a brand is something that really matters to everybody and is perfectly valued.
