When branding yourself it’s important to distinguish yourself from your competition. If the goal is to get your customers to think of you when they see your product you have to clearly define your brand identity early on. If you don’t you’ll take your business from, “It’s Alive!” to “It’s Dead!” Benu Creative Frankenstein Keytake Aways From Analyzing Classic Movie Monsters As Brands And Marketing Ranked Video
