    Branding: The Cutting Edge

    Branding by using social media technology is the new way of creating rights and goodwill in the name of a restaurant, as well as for food and beverage products. Companies in these areas have quickly become aware of the benefits of advertising in social media outlets as well as in other outlets such as print ads, TV and radio. But advertising and branding are also being "modified" to take better advantage of these new outlets to get a name and mark into the marketplace and in front of a consumer.
