The Difference Between Marketing & Branding

Many folks toss around terms like marketing, promotion and branding as if they are interchangeable… one and the same thing. They are not. For starters, Branding is bigger than marketing. Just like Marketing is much bigger than any one of its components (advertising, trade shows, blogging etc.). This article, by the Tronvig Group, is very helpful in understanding and explaining the difference between marketing and branding. Every savvy marketer needs to understand the ying and yang relationship between the two.


Long ago, Aristotle said, “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts”; for branding and marketing, that thinking is still relevant today.
