It takes healthy brands to succeed in today’s chaotic, fast-moving, competitive marketplace. Yet, marketers are confronted with, and their organizations are contributing to, an “age of sameness,” where products and services are virtually indistinguishable. The result is that customers are commoditizing categories and discriminating principally on price. Offering more and/or enhanced features is not enough to win customers and create loyalty.
