Charles M. Berger former brand marketer for H. J. Heinz Co. and CEO of Scotts Miracle-Gro Co. defined a brand as follows:
“A real brand owns a very tiny but important piece of real estate in a consumer’s mind.”
Toward that end, BrandTags.net has developed an online brand association tool for identifying the pieces of real estate a particular brand owns in the minds of consumers.
If Mr. Berger were still alive, I am sure he would be pleased to learn his previous employer H.J. Heinz and their primary product – Ketchup – still own the generic product category description in the vast majority of consumers’ minds (at least those who visited and tagged brands at BrandTags.net ).
