Elon Musk’s Tesla is setting quite the buzz for itself, while Amazon has managed to hold on to its top spot for three years in a row now. However, the Apple and Alphabet Inc’s Google has taken a plunge. What am I talking about? Well, according to the annual Harris Poll Reputation Quotient Poll, Apple has slid in the survey from the fifth position to the 29th and Google has joined it by being in the 28th position after diving from its previous year’s 8th position.
It shows that the tech landscape is changing these days rapidly, after all, Apple did rank as high as No. 2 in this list back at 2016.
The Harris Poll Reputation Quotient Poll which has been going on since yearly since 1999, assigned these rankings this year after asking 25,800 Americans on what they think about the reputations of the “most visible” corporate brands.
Harris Poll Reputation Quotient Poll CEO, John Gerzema said to Reuters that most obvious reason for Apple and Google fall was the fact that they have not brought out as attractive products or services in the recent years as they used to do earlier.
“Google and Apple, at this moment, are sort of in valleys,” Gerzema mused, “We’re not quite to self-driving cars yet. We do not yet see all the things in artificial intelligence they’re going to do.”
Looks like Google and Apple, both need to cook up something spectacular now, to be back on track like before.
At the same time, Bezos Amazon.com managed to cling on to the number one position of the Harris Poll Reputation Quotient Poll. The online giant has managed to be at the top for five years barring 2015, where it had to be content with the second position. As per Gerezema, the reason that Amazon has managed to hold on to its position is by solidifying its presence in the life of an average consumer.
