Five key data analysis frameworks for building a strong brand strategy

Download now

In this Brand Analytics ebook we outline a structured approach to understanding a market with a view to aiding the brand planning process, using data that is commonly available from existing survey research, be it continuous, dipstick, or even periodic “Usage and Attitude” (U&A) studies. If such data is not available, it is (these days) relatively inexpensive and time-efficient to get it. We offer these frameworks in the hope that it makes the task of adding value to data easier.

What you'll get from this ebook

While the brand analytics process in commercial practice will be more complicated, we’ve boiled it down into five frameworks:

  • Competitive Market Structure Analysis
  • Acquisition Funnel Audit
  • Profiling the Core Consumer
  • Performance-Importance Analysis
  • Basic Brand Vulnerability Matrix
