This research will use secondary data and research evidence from related and relevant studies to develop the questionnaires. The secondary data used in this research will be gained from various sources such as journal article, textbooks, relevant websites, newspapers and dissertations/theses.

3.2 Data Analysis
The analysis focuses on several aspects of branding and consumer behaviour which are based either on theory or
