brand strategy agency

Where’s The Brand Loyalty Gone?
Consumer research tells us that brand loyalty is diminishing at a rapid rate. 78% of western consumers no longer have loyalty to any one brand in any category. Brands who a decade ago shared trusted and valued relationships with their clients and consumers are finding those same relationships have become transactional. Once the ultimate symbol of brand affinity, it seems even brand tattoos are losing their status.

Audrey Green explains the reason behind the bizarre idea in a statement describing its loyal customers with an “appetite for new flavours”. Green goes on to explain; we also read and listen to hundreds of comments we get from fans every day asking us for more flavours and suggesting new ones. We have seen a flavour trend towards sweet and salty combinations and felt it was time to put that to the test and create an Australian twist”. The new chocolate bar will taste like caramel with a hint of Vegemite flavour; similar to salted caramel, minus the salty and yeasty aftertaste that Vegemite is famous for.
