What to Track for Branding Measurement B.Moghimi@yahoo.co.uk 18 Awareness: both recall and recognition measures should be collected. Usage: this can be measured through recency, frequency of usage, and total spending in the brand, and product category. Brand Attitudes and Perceptions: Product and non-product associations, as well as those related to price and value are important sources of brand equity and should be part of brand tracking studies. Purchase intent: measures of likelihood to buy a brand or switch to a competitor are also indicators of brand health and should be part of brand tracking
How to Track for Branding Measurement 20 Frequency of product purchase: for example durable goods with long purchase cycles can be tracked less frequently. B.Moghimi@yahoo.co.uk Marketing activity in the product category: a category where brands are constantly launching marketing programs and promotions should be monitor more often. Level of competition in product category: highly competitive product categories, where new products and competitors are constantly trying to break in, should be tracked regularly. Stability of brand associations: brands with an established image that don't show appreciable changes over time, can afford a less frequent brand tracking
Quantitative Research Techniques Awareness B.Moghimi@yahoo.co.uk Image Brand responses Brand relationships 9.21
Brand Awareness Recognition – Ability of consumers to identify the brand (and its elements) under various circumstances Recall B.Moghimi@yahoo.co.uk – – Ability of consumers to retrieve the actual brand elements from memory when given some related probe or cue Unaided vs. aided recall 9.22
Awareness B.Moghimi@yahoo.co.uk Corrections for guessing – Any research measure must consider the issue of consumers making up responses or guessing. Strategic implications – The advantage of aided recall measures is that they yield insight into how brand knowledge is organized in memory and what kind of cues or reminders may be necessary for consumers to be able to retrieve the brand from memory. – The important point to note is that the category structure that exists in consumers’ minds—as reflected by brand recall performance—can have profound implications for consumer choice and marketing strategy. 9.23
Image B.Moghimi@yahoo.co.uk Ask open-ended questions to tap into the strength, favorability, and uniqueness of brand associations. These associations should be rated on scales for quantitative analysis. 9.24

Brand Relationships B.Moghimi@yahoo.co.uk Behavioral loyalty Brand substitutability : Longman and Moran view repeat rate – how many people who bought a particular brand last time would buy it again this time- as the key indicator of brand equity Other brand resonance dimensions – For example, in terms of engagement, measures could explore word-of-mouth behavior, online behavior, and so forth in depth 9.26

Equity engines B.Moghimi@yahoo.co.uk 29 This model delineates three key dimensions of brand affinity [the emotional and intangible benefits of a brand] as follows: Authority: The reputation of a brand, whether as a longstanding leader or as a pioneer in innovation Identification: The closeness customers feel for a brand and how well they feel the brand matches their personal Needs Approval: The way a brand fits into the wider social matrix and the intangible status it holds for experts and friends
Young & Rubicam’s Brand Asset Valuator (BAV) 30 There are five key components of brand health in BAV B.Moghimi@yahoo.co.uk Each pillar is derived from various measures that relate to different aspects of consumers’ brand perceptions and that together trace the progression of a brand’s development. – Differentiation – Energy – Relevance – Esteem – Knowledge
Qualitative Research Techniques 1. Free Association 2. Projective Technique B.Moghimi@yahoo.co.uk 31 3. Ethnographic and Observational Approaches
Qualitative … “Free Association“ B.Moghimi@yahoo.co.uk 32 This technique involves free association tasks whereby subjects are asked what comes to mind when they think of the brand without any more specific probe or cue than perhaps the associated product category (e.g. “what does the Rolex name mean to you?” or “Tell me what comes to mind when you think of Rolex watches.”)
Qualitative … “Projective Technique“ B.Moghimi@yahoo.co.uk 33 Uncovering the sources of brand equity requires that consumers’ brand knowledge structures be profiled as accurately and completely as possible. Unfortunately, under certain situations, consumers may feel that it would be socially unacceptable or undesirable to express their true feelings. Projective techniques are diagnostic tools to uncover the true opinions and feelings of consumers when they are unwilling or otherwise unable to express themselves on these matters.
Qualitative … “Ethnographic and Observational Approaches“ B.Moghimi@yahoo.co.uk 34 Fresh data can be gathered by directly observing relative actors and settings. Consumers can be unobtrusively observed as they shop or as they consume products to capture every shade of their behavior. Marketers such as Procter & Gamble seek consumers’ permission to spend time with them in their homes to see how they actually use and experience products.
