A strong brand has a clear, valuable, and continuous differentiating power as the spearhead of a company's competitiveness and helps in marketing strategies.

b. Brand recognition

Minimum level of brand awareness. It is important for a buyer to choose a brand when making a purchase.

c. Brand recall

Recalling the brand is based on someone's request to mention a particular brand in a product class. This is termed recall without help, because different from the introduction task, consumers do not need to be helped to bring up the brand.

d. Top of mind

If someone directly without the help of remembrance to mention one brand, then the brand that was first spoken was the peak of the mind. The brand is the highest brand of various brands in the minds of consumers.
