What does it mean for a brand to be emotional?   It means that we feel good when use the brand or when other people associate us with it.

Brand loyalty can run deep – even when we are disappointed in our recent experience.  People can lose a lot of money this way when investing in a corporation that has “always done well in the past”.

Our own identity can be tied intimately to branding:  the clothes we wear, the car we drive, the corporation we work for – all these things help shape our personal image.

So then, the future of brands is all about emotion and beliefs, and both are changing.   How we position our brands and our mission is vitally important.
