Brand mascots can be an effective marketing tool if they are built into the story of your brand. Slapping a whale, bunny or robot onto your brand won’t increase your marketshare or awareness overnight. Mascots naturally create brand triggers in the marketplace. For example, every time I see a white duck, I think Aflac (often I catch myself saying A…FLAC).
