Benefits of Nostalgia Marketing

Clearly, the pervasiveness of retromarketing has something to do with the companies that are promulgating it, since it doesn't happen all by itself. From an organisational standpoint, indeed, it makes eminent sense to play the heritage card when there is a heritage to play with. In a world where top-notch performance is industry standard in countless product categories – cars, cameras, colas, cornflakes, chinos, cellular phones etc. – the length of one's lineage remains a meaningful dimension of differentiation and, at the same time, a means of positioning the competition as less trustworthy, less reputable, less knowledgeable than the first born.
