Hello, I’m Jim Glover, That Branding Guy for Once a Day Marketing™. Today is Strategic Tuesday and we are looking at recent marketing emphasis on products made in America.

We are noticing a trend emerging to promote goods made in the USA.  New Balance boasts that it is the only major company making footwear in the USA.  Its website highlights 75 years of creating quality products in America and employing 1,300 workers.  This past weekend some retailers offered added discounts on USA-made products, encouraging shoppers to buy American. 

The research firm Brand Keys surveyed 4,500 consumers to determine the top 25 most patriotic brands.  Jeep was the identified as the top brand followed by Hershey's, Coca-Cola, Levi Strauss and Walt Disney.

Apple, Inc. is also contributing to this patriotic trend.  One of their latest ad campaigns touts "Designed in California by Apple."  Additionally, CEO Tim Cook announced that Apple is planning to manufacturer Macs in the USA.

For Strategic Tuesday, consider how to align this latest consumer sentiment with your company, brand or product to capture more customer loyalty and sales.
