Name Brand Recognition
« on: September 04, 2017, 09:02:47 pm »
   Ever think about how many poplar name brands become synonymous with that product or service? It results in great advertising. For example how many of you ask for a Kleenex instead of a tissue? In the UK I think they still Hoover the rug. Dad said when he was a kid if you were going to buy a new vehicle you'd say you were going to buy a new Ford even if you were actually buying a Chevy or a Packard. When I was a kid in NW Fla Coke (Actually we called them CoColas) meant a soft drink. You'd tell the vendor you wanted a CoCola and they'd ask "What Kind?" and you might say RC or Pepsi. A Frigidaire was the same as a refrigerator - of course back then some old timers still just called them an ice box.

   If any of you can think of other items go ahead a post them here for others to take a trip down memory lane.

   Well, I better go LogRite me a couple of red oaks on to the mill and get back to sawing.

ljohnsaw,

   Wait till you tell them you need to burn a copy of something.

    My daughter made me feel old when I told her years ago I almost didn't get to graduate as it took all the money I and my little brother had on us to pay the lady who typed my final research project paper. She was dead serious when she asked "You mean you paid somebody just to type a paper?" I told her yes that in those days we did not have computers and the only guys in my school who took typing had a girlfriend in the typing class or they were hitting on the teacher.

But learning how to type came in handy in my career - Computer programming...

I had a shop teacher that would not allow us to use terms like skill saw, crescent wrench and Allen wrench. He went so far as to dock points if he heard us call a tool by a brand name. He claimed there would be less confusion if brand names weren't used.

On a related topic, the medical profession is catching on to this logic, calling medications by the generic names and not using brand names thus reducing chances of medication errors.

Jeff,

   I did not know that was a brand name. Never seen it for sale anywhere I lived or visited. I was surprised to find that in Europe it is sold in tubes like toothpaste instead of jars like we are used to.

Jeff,

   You sound like my son. I will give the Miracle Whip people for good marketing.

    Speaking of marketing when you drive up to the window at our local bank they have lollipops (Is that a brand?) for the kids and doggy treats in case you have your log dog with you. Yesterday a lady with a beagle and poodle pulled up beside me and the dogs were having a fit bouncing and yipping till they got their treat. I gather they had been there before.

I do like miracle whip on a hamburger but That whatever knockoff brand is the cheapest at the grocery outlet stuff is a waste of money and it ain't mayonnaise!
