Brand analysis

Brand analysis covers a range of techniques that help marketers understand the health of a brand. A key concept is ‘brand equity’, which (though defined in several ways) is focused on identifying the added value a brand name gives to a product. Other ways of assessing the health of a brand include brand valuation (which seeks to put a financial value on a brand) and ‘brand promoter’ research, which looks at how likely consumers are to recommend a brand.
