The ultimate goal is to have your brand roll off tongues as if the brand is the actual product.
- We see they serve Pepsi, so we order Coke because Coke has become the term used for soda.
- Aaah-choo, please pass the Kleenex.
- I need the Vice-grips to get the bolt loose.
Coke, Kleenex, Vice-grips are all brands. While there are other products made that work the same, these brands increased awareness in such a huge way that they replaced the actual terms for the products.
You want to develop brand awareness.
You want people rolling your brand off their tongues in everyday speech.
