Some brands are more recognizable than others, however, no matter the size of the company behind a brand, each company has one thing in common; They all do their utmost to protect the integrity of their brand. Here are three things that are important to brand health.
Each year, companies go to battle to make sure that consumers are aware of their brand but to also ensure that other companies don’t infringe upon their brand and use it for their own gains. Brand infringement is something that happens on a fairly regular basis all over the globe and while imitation is the highest form of flattery, it can have a detrimental effect on how your brand is perceived in the public eye. It’s for this reason that companies spend millions of dollars annually to protect this perception.
