Elevating Brand Equity: Uncover and Leverage Strengths

In the complex world of brands, understanding their equity is crucial. Vivaldi offers an insightful approach to reveal brand strengths and weaknesses across diverse contexts and stakeholders, even in M&A transactions.

Key Dimensions of Brand Equity: Brand equity is the culmination of four dimensions: brand awareness, perceived quality, brand associations, and brand loyalty. This model, as proposed by Aaker and Joachimsthaler, defines the core components that contribute to a brand’s strength and perception.

Revealing Brand Presence: Brand awareness signifies the presence of a brand in consumers’ minds. Its memory is reinforced through actions like models, products, communication, and networks. Kapferer underscores how a brand’s manifestation is rooted in its actions.

Quality at the Core: Perceived quality lies at the heart of consumers’ purchases. It’s intertwined with a brand’s identity and reflects a product’s essence. However, perceived quality can deviate from actual quality. Achieving quality isn’t enough; it’s crucial to shape market perceptions.

Strategic Positioning: Brand association encapsulates what a brand represents to consumers. It’s the desired image a firm aims to create in consumers’ minds. Often referred to as brand positioning, it defines the essence a brand conveys.

Unlocking Strategic Value through Brand Equity

A Strategic Resource: Brand equity, more than a mere asset, holds strategic significance. It’s a pivotal resource that can fortify or weaken competitive positions, and add or diminish firm value.

Intangible Power: In the realm of strategic resources, brand equity falls under the category of intangibles. Unlike visible assets, intangible resources like brand equity possess enduring value. Tangible assets can be bought and copied, offering limited competitive advantage.
