What is the difference between branding and marketing?

Consider marketing as the invite for a smooch, while branding is the ‘spark’ that lures them in. Need that spark? The Brand Surgery prescribes just the right branding treatment to captivate and cure any lacklustre appeal. Get in touch with Vicky for your brand’s prescription.

Marketing is like asking someone to kiss you. Branding is the ‘reason’ they want to kiss you.

The Brand Surgery creates that ‘reason’ and you are in the right place if you want more kisses.

Launched in 2002 – we’ve been creating kissable brands by making them shine brightly from the inside out.  After all, you want to look good, taste good and have an irresistible and interesting personality, so people keep coming back for more kisses, right?

To create the ‘reason’ why people want to kiss you, we superpower your brand by blending marketing strategy, psychology and creative design.  We achieve this by designing stunning logos, websites and other online and offline marketing collateral. At the same time, we ‘superpower’ the heart and soul of your brand, and to do this, we blend training, coaching with ‘hands on’ marketing solutions.

Our kissable clients include exciting startups through to established SMEs. They have all enjoyed plenty of long kisses and as a result, they have typically tripled in size within two-three years, bucking trends in difficult economic climates.

We take kissing seriously and therefore The Brand Surgery is a CPD accredited training provider, a Fellow Member of the Chartered Institute of Marketing, a Chartered Marketer and a Fellow Member of the Institute of Leadership and Management. This means, you can trust us to make your brand kissable.
