What is the exact difference between a brand and a product ?
Brand makes the stuff. Product is the stuff made.
The brand is a company for example Burt's Bee's they are a brand and they have many different products including chap stick, lotion, etc.
the brand is its distributer for example Fritolay "brand" cheetos
Kleenex is a good example. People will say, "Hand me a Kleenex". However, Kleenex is the brand name. What they're really asking for is a facial tissue - the product. (The same with "Velcro." Which is actually hook & loop tape.)
A brand is a trademarked name, such as Coca-Cola or Pepsi. The product is more generic, such as carbonated cola soft drink.
Brand makes products.
