There continues to be debate regarding the value and role of the brand in driving purchase behaviour as consumers interact with brands across an increasing and varying number of channels with price continuing to play an ever increasing role. For us, the equity of the brand continues to be a key influencer on purchase behaviour but this should be measured in the context of a person’s connections with the brand in terms of the qualities and loyalties they hold to this brand, coupled with additional in-market factors that influence purchase. This premise forms the foundation of our Brand Equity model, a tool frequently incorporated into Brand Health Measurement studies and the brand assessment portion of U&As.
