Research shows that leading brands which are not supported consistently by marketing, have a limited lifetime. Marketing professor Golder concludes that only 23% of the leading brands from 1923 are still leading brands in 1997 and that 28% has disappeared. The results shouldn’t be surprising: brands lose value on a daily basis by unfaithful customers or new competing products. Brands should be maintained and redefined continuously to stay relevant to customers. If you want to maintain leadership you have to continue to change.
