I only notice brands if they do a particularly excellent or horrendous job. Which should be no surprise to anyone in a marketing department. :)
Most brands are OK. Nothing special. They do what they're supposed to do. And they want a medal for it?
Well, goodness, I didn't know you two knew each other!
We've been friends for years. :)
I seem to have been born two genes short- the brand gene and the celebrity gene.
I just boggle that anyone thinks I pay any attention to advertising or to what celebrities think I should like!
I avoid advertising as much as I'm able. When I catch some (or it catches me) I generally shout at it.
You could have asked me - and that would have saved the clock that you knocked off and broke while checking the brand of air freshener. :-))
I didn't like to bother you....
I agree with you 100%. I am brand loyal to one thing only and that's to a certain clothes washing detergent. I've tried many and this one is the only one that doesn't clog our drains with phosphate blobs. Otherwise I have store brands a-plenty and hardly ever bother to even look at adverts.
There are certain branded foodstuffs I remain faithful to.
I can think of Marmite and Lea and Perrins Worcestershire Sauce- and that's about it.
I notice ads I don't like, and stop buying brands accordingly. There are few brands I am loyal to, and when I am, it's because I've tried the product and like it a lot. At the moment I can't think of any.
I can't think of any ads I like.
You seriously can't tell the difference between Coke and Pepsi?
Coke is far superior. Pepsi a flat, slimey, pallid pretender.
I like the way Irish Spring soap smells, so I buy that.
I like the way Jergens hand lotion smells (like cherries or almonds) so I buy that.
I don't like the smell of fake lemon, so I don't buy anything scented like lemons.
When possible, I buy anything that has no added scent or color. Except for soap and hand lotion. (See above.) Generally, I buy what is cheapest, as well--so long as it doesn't violate any of my principals.
I also avoid products associated with the Koch brothers under most circumstances.
If you gave me a glass of fizzy sugary red stuff and asked me to say if was Coke or Pepsi I wouldn't have a clue.
We're on a budget. Like you we generally go for what is cheapest.
It would be neither, as Coke and Pepsi are brown in color. Not red. :)
