What is brand communication?
Brand communication is getting consumers to know a product by way of promotion. It is marketing a product to a specific target audience in a way to influence their opinion.
Consider brand equity as how much the company has a vested interest in their brand. If that brand is well known and trusted, then it has high brand equity. If the company maintains their brand promise and identity throughout all points of communication, they build equity in their brand...and become better known and trusted than their lesser-known competitors.
Integrated marketing communication simplifies the marketing process by replacing personal selling with extensive use of advertising to create a positive brand image?
Simply put, the target of Corporate Communications is to build the image of the company itself. On the other hand, Mass Communication typically has the target of introducing/selling a product to the target consumers. Corporate Communication frequently takes the form of a more serious/subtle/suave approach, while Mass Communications tend to highlight the brand values and benefits to the consumer.
Integrated Brand Communications refers to a method used by most new age communications agencies and successful businesses to promote their business name and product. It combines the use of communicative ideas such as Public Relations, Advertising, Investor relations, Social Media, Interactive and Internal communications to manage a business most precious asset which is its Brand.

IMC is the abbreviated term for Integrated Marketing Communication. IMC is the practice of unifying all marketing communications to convey the company's objectives and goals to all contacts through communication tools. In short IMC promotes the company's brand in all it's marketing efforts and communications.
Brand Management is the process of developing (or updating/modifying) the strategy and individual tactics necessary to communicate a "brand" to a given market. A brand is, by nature, an intangible thing...a relationship that you, the individual being marketed to, has with the product (or company, service, etc.). So when a brand is "managed," that simply means decisions are being made on how to uphold an image, consistently deliver what the product/service/employer's story or "brand promise"…
