The Importance of Brand Authenticity

A brand's message needs to be relevant and authentic to cut
through.  'Think different', a hallmark of one of my favorite brands,
encouraged me to change my point of view and gave me a kinship with Apple.
 So much so that I still stand in hour long lines to buy their products as
soon as they are released.   Literally the only brand that I'd ever do
that for.
Authenticity without relevance does not speak.  I don't
care that Ivory was the first soap that floats or that Arm & Hammer has been
around since the 1860s.  
Relevance without authenticity rings hollow.  We may
all want ice cream from a European creamery but we all know it doesn't come
from Haagen Daz.

And yet when combined, relevant authenticity makes me care.

Whatever it is, I'm buying.
