World wide web Advertising: Evolution within the Field of Branding
When it is a product or service or the business, branding is definitely an image in a customer's mind. Marketers for ages have recognized the value of a picture, which speaks a thousand words.

Branding dates back for the 18th century when the name "branding" was not even identified to marketers. By 1920s the concept of branding was well known and established by the two businesses "Procter & Gamble" and "Lever Brothers". Since then first time in 1996, Goodyear formalized six stages of branding. And since then we have seen a couple of brands which turned customers into brand evangelists.

However another evolving medium is the internet which is more personalized and powerful. Today we have 900 Million internet users who access the world wide web at work, home and even when they are outside travelling, eating or shopping.

Imagine the power of an web promotion, brands like Flipkart, which is definitely an world wide web shopping portal; an effective promotion has established it as a brand which redefined the experience of buying books online.
