Maximize results with measurement. There are three ways to make sure you get the best results from your marketing dollar.
• Brand Perception. These studies focus on consumers functional, emotional and subliminal relationships to your brand, and how they drive theirs conclusions. This ranges from awareness and familiarity to brand relevance in establishing preference for your brand.
• Performance Measures. These studies help you to gauge how the combined brand building exercises have come together to drive your overall marketing returns, and can be measured at the campaign level (immediate response, cost per lead generated, etc.) to market saturation (depth of channel penetration,
channel quality, and channel velocity) and can even give you a picture of performance on key issues like price premiums, consumer loyalty and the lifetime value of a consumer.
• The bottom line. Financial analysis which report the economic metrics, such as for revenue growth or the return-on-investment year on year.
Collectively, these monitoring activities allow you to judge the effectiveness of your marketing efforts in regards to your brand investments and how they impact your bottom line.
In addition, we offer proprietary tools that quantify this data so that you can take quick and effective action to stewarding your brand. These include....
