Brand is a combination of name, symbol and design. Brands represent the customer’s perceptions and opinion about performance of the product. The powerful brand is which resides in the mind of the consumer. Brands differ in the amount of power and worth they have in the market place. Some brands are usually unknown to the customers in the marketplace while on the other hand some brands show very high degree of awareness. The brands with high awareness have a high level of acceptability and customers do not refuse to buy such brands as they enjoy the brand performance. Some brands commend high level of brand loyalty. In the earlier times the brand mark was used to differentiate the goods of one producer to others.

Branding concepts has been used for centuries around the world in different forms. The original inspiration for branding came for craftsmen and others to recognize the fruits and their labors, so that the customers could easily identify them. Furthermore branding and trademarks, was applied in past ancient pottery and stonemasons marks, which was utilized to mark handcrafted goods to recognize their source (Kevin Lane Keller, 2007).

Brands also have a symbolic value which helps the people to choose the best product according to their need and satisfaction. Usually people do not buy certain brands just for design and requirement, but also in an attempt to enhance their self esteem in the society (De Chernatory Leslie & Mc Donald Malcolm H.B, 2002)

Some brands have very strong position in the market as they are more consumers friendly and customer purchases these branded products on trust and without any hesitation. Brand names present many things about a product and give number of information about it to the customers and also tell the customer or potential buyer what the product means to them. Furthermore it represents the customers’ convenient summary like their feelings, knowledge and experiences with the brand. More over customer do not spend much time to do find out about the product. When customer considers about the purchase they evaluate the product immediately by reconstructed product from memory and cued by the brand name (Flemmming Hansen and Lars Bech Christensen, 2003).

A brand has a value; this depends on the quality of its products in the market and the satisfaction or content of the customer in its products and services. This provides the trust of the customers in the brand. If customers trust a brand quality it makes a positive connection to the brand and customers will have a reason to become a loyal to the brand. Loyalty and trust of the customers is very important for a company because it reduces the chance of attack from competitors. Consumer behavior is the point for firm to discuss after they choose product and try them. Whenever consumer thinking to purchase products then they are includes quality, price, service, and brand name.
