For these reasons, the main goal of this empirical research is the analysis and discussion of the effects of brand management on the level of business performance in small enterprises, by using a sample of 300 small firms and by implementing a model of structural equations of second order, that can provide a deeper understanding of the current relation between brand management and business performance. The results obtained show that brand management has a positive and significant in the level of business performance in small enterprises.
