ARTICLE SUMMARY: As the global marketplace expands and the world gets smaller brand building becomes more challenging every day.
A lot of today’s consumers are suffering from information overload. All that information can confuse rather than confirm our choices causing us a level of uncertainty in what we are about to buy.

- Ease Of Choice
