'Building capacity to trust' is about display of empathy, reinforcing a non-threatening ambience and showcasing of shared interest. On the other hand, 'Creating perception of positive intent' is reflected when the Brand works for a socially beneficial cause with highest degree of transparency. Lastly, 'Displaying relevant competence' takes into consideration several tangible aspects like accountability, high skill, leadership, values and personality of the brand.


Every time a Brand has a human interface, it arouses deep-rooted physical, psychological, sociological and cultural reactions in the person, exerted as a 'force of attraction' by the Brand. The Attractiveness quotient has been classified into four appeals namely rational, emotional, communication and aspirational. A Brand should communicate with certain emotional maturity, positivity, hope, creativity and should direct its ambition towards a holistic approach
