Mythic Marketing

Brands use mythology to create a sense of mystique around products

Implications - Myths have intricate connotations, connecting people to a sense of a shared past with mysterious, historical ancestors. Considering this deep degree of emotional power, companies can benefit from leveraging mythology in their branding. Couching products and marketing in mythical figures and stories creates a sense of both mystique and belonging for consumers.
