This is one of those "sez you, sez me" things. If it
works for ya, Ivan, more power to you. In my experience,
I've just seen too many people go to market unprepared.
Then they not only have to deal with the expense in time
and money creating the brand, they also have to deal with
the expense in time and money re-educating the market.
Like I said, it's your call. Where I come from, I find
that if you lead, they follow. The fact that so many
people DON'T brand effectively usually means that the
market will respond to your leadership with both their
hearts and their wallets.
