Let’s talk about brand loyalty
I am a huge C3 fangirl. Most of my throws are from C3 and I’ve spent a lot on C3 throws. I always recommend C3 throws and I always say good things about them. They have a great team and they make awesome videos. Anybody can see how great the company is. But I’ve recently come to realize that my brand loyalty was based mainly on the fact that I wanted to be sponsored by them. All the yoyos that I have bought recently have been C3 yoyos, with the exception of a Fiesta XX, and I’m finally seeing how much I’m missing out on. I thought that maybe if all I threw was C3 then maybe C3 would sponsor me, maybe they would see how dedicated I was to them. I also thought that buying expensive yoyos would make be a better yoyoer. I’ve come to realize how ignorant I was and how ignorant I still am. I’ve missed a lot of great deals because of brand loyalty and I’ve made some stupid trades as well. I’m probably going to be selling off some of my C3 throws because they don’t get the attention that they deserve. I’m going to start buying throws from other companies and manufacturers, a step forward into being less ignorant. I’m not posting this to get sponsored, I’m posting this because I’d like to know about other peoples’ experiences.
Brand loyalty is over rated imho. Buying from only one brand all the time can get boring and expensive very fast, I would know. By buying from only one company it means that you miss out on a lot of other great throws.
So, tell your stories of brand loyalty or finally getting rid of the ‘Get sponsored mentality’. Or just say nothing at all. Questions, comments, or anything you wanna say can be left here in this thread.
