More Than 35 Years of Experience Separates Sunstone Circuits from the Average PCB prototype ProviderSunstone's lengthy heritage makes for a unique position in the marketplace
Mulino, Ore. – June 23rd, 2010 – In any business, it's the intangibles and the benefits of your chosen provider that truly defines your loyalty as a consumer. Brand identity is all a business has when separating themselves from the competition. Many businesses find themselves reaching to maintain an identity. Be it that they consolidate or simply restructure, projecting an identity has become seemingly harder than it once was in years past. As brands become more diluted, do they lose their ability to stand-out and separate themselves from the competition? What happens to the product? Most importantly, how does this affect the customer? Far too often when companies are forced to reconstruct their brand, the identity of the product itself seems to fall through the cracks.
As a consumer, you have to ask yourself: Why do I buy from this company? Is the product the same now, as it was before? It would appear so, but when you take a closer look… is it? The real question is; what made this product so great? Why did I continue to come back and purchase it? There are many ways one could answer these questions… but the reality is that there are multiple factors that make consumers become repeat customers.
Product quality, customer service, purchasing efficiency, knowledge and trust are just a few of the things that come to mind when trying to determine whether or not a brand deserves your loyalty.
