Brand Differentiation

brand differentiationDefinition

Brand differentiation in advertising occurs when the key sales message:

  • serves to differentiate the brand from the competition in a way that is demonstrated or proven
  • makes a claim that only the advertised brand can make (that is, the message expresses a “point-of-difference” for the brand)
  • is unique in that it emphasizes some new aspect of the product[1]
