Seth Godin defines brand as;

“the set of expectations, memories, stories and relationships that, taken together, account for a consumer’s decision to choose one product or service over another. If the consumer (whether it’s a business, a buyer or a voter) doesn’t pay a premium, make a selection or spread the word, then no brand value exists for that consumer.”
