Comprehensive literature review
Branding is one of the most important in business that enables the brand to gain instant recognition and establish itself in a sustainable position for influencing the mindsets of the consumers and ensure that they purchase products on a consistent manner to improve the sales of the company. The branding perspective not only influences the buying decisions of consumers, but also has combined the various components of humanpsychology experimentwith the use of marketing components (Malik et al., 2013). Brands are promoted through marketing and promotional approaches and nowadays, internet marketing has played a vital role too for enhancing brand awareness among the customers. This influences the customers to make purchases of the products consistently which further improves the sales of the business organizations. The quality and features of products in respective of the brand, when delivered properly, has created trust and loyalty among customers, which has maintained a positive brand value and the customers have managed to buy the products, thus resulted in increasing the sales and profit level too (Oliver, 2014).
Quantitative and qualitative data
Mixed methodology is suitable here for conducting the research, because of the significance of collecting both qualitative and quantitative data for conducting the research efficiently.
The collected data and information will be analyzed and interpreted for making any prior assumptions and predict the future as well. Rather than determining the ‘why’, the research will be conducted by evaluating the ‘what’ and ‘how’, which shall allow the research to be conducted in much more details, furthermore fill the missing gaps too. This will ensure that the dependent and independent variables are connected, and positive outcomes are obtained. Thus, the descriptive research design will be the most suitable. The analysis of data will be done with the use of SPSS tool and by representing the numerical data and information in the form of graphs and tables with the use of Excel sheet for ease of understanding by the researcher.
To determine the impact of branding on the sales level achieved within the retail sector, an experiment will be done for comparing the results obtained from intervention groups with the information related to the branding aspects such as marketing, promotions, advertising, etc. Based on the nature of topic, the experiment will likely be controlled properly considering the right sample size and maintaining the ethics too for ensuring that purpose of research is known to the population and that is solely for academic purposes, and not for any commercial benefits (Romaniuk & Nenycz-Thiel, 2013).
