What effect does brand awareness have on consumers?
Brand awareness appears to be a rather vague concept, despite it actually having a huge impact on the impression it has on consumers lives.
It firstly reinforces trust. Nowadays, people are reluctant to make a purchase unless it is through a recommendation or research. If a consumer can truly bond with your brand, they’re more likely to make a repeat purchase.

If you put enough effort into your brand, people will start to associate your brand with actions.
