Death of Brands

Lovemarks vs Cluetrain deathmatch. The signal thru all the noise is that Lovemarks are an initial attempt at emotion repositories, and Cluetrains are essentially search economizers.

I think Lovemarks are wrongheaded, but on the right track, because the Net creates Cluetrains whether or not firms want them - it's managing emotions authentically that is challenge for post-branding. Information is cheap; emotions are expensive; emotion management is even more costly.
