Um, no. That's awareness. And brands need awareness,
for sure. But awareness does not make a brand. The
brand is the brand. Awareness is awareness. Although
this may seem to be a hair-splitting distinction, I
assure you, it's among the top mistakes that cost
businesses billions of bucks every year in real dollars
and lost productivity.
