Advertising and Marketing Communication are and Investment!
Advertising Is An Investment Helps Develop Equity! Every ad (program element) should be thought of as a contribution to the complex symbol which is the brand message. David Ogilvy
Advertising is an Intangible Asset Many of the most important assets of a firm (people and brand names) are “intangible assets” that are not capitalized and do not appear on a balance sheet. Depreciation is not assessed, on “intangible assets,” and maintenance must come out of cash flow or short-term profits. David Aaker Managing Brand Equity
Advertising is an Intangible Asset Everyone understands that even in bad times a factory or plant must be maintained, in part because of the depreciation term in the income statement and also because the needs are usually visible. An intangible asset, by contrast is more vulnerable, and its “maintenance” is more easily neglected.
Lets Make it More Tangible!
Brand Equity Creates Brand Value!
What is Brand Equity? Brand equity is a set of brand assets and liabilities linked to a brand that add to or subtract from the value provided by a product to a firm and that firm’s customers. David Aaker Managing Brand Equity
Understanding Equity or Value Added Changes in the value added by the brand name should be as routine a part of annual reviews and plans as changes in brand volume. James C. Crimmins, Better Measure and Management of Brand Value.
Can We Measure The Value Added By a Brand Name? If my brand and a competitor’s are equally desirable, when mine costs $110 and my competitor’s costs $100, the amount of value added by my brand name relative to my competitor’s: $110 — 1 = 10% $100 James C. Crimmins, Better Measurement and Management of Brand Value.
Aaker’s Big Ten Asset Areas David Aaker, Managing Brand Equity
Brand Loyalty Loyal customer base reduces vulnerability to competitive action. Price Premium – How much more are you willing to pay? Satisfaction/Loyalty – satisfied? buy again? recommended?.
Associations/Differentiation Image dimensions that are unique to product or product class. Value – good value for the money – reasons to buy over your competitors
Associations/Differentiation Brand personality – brand as person. Link to emotional/self expressive. Differentiation when limited physical difference Social consumption -- Is brand unique? Interesting? clear image of user?
Associations/Differentiation Organizational Associations -- brand as organization. – I trust McDonalds and like it more because of Ronald McDonald House – I think Patagonia makes quality clothing and is environmentally friendly
Brand Awareness Brand Awareness — Brand salience Brand must enter evoked set as a reasonable alternative. - recall - top of mind - recognition
Market Behavior Market Share Market Price and Distribution Coverage – relative market price that is not deep discounted. – relative product price – distribution

Another Method to Measure Equity
What Do We Mean By “Added Value?” From the buyer’s/user’s perspective, the value added by a brand name has three dimensions: 1. The amount of value added by the brand name in the category. 2. The breadth of the added value. The range of product categories in which the name has value. 3. The content of the added value. The specific qualities that are implied by the brand name. These qualities are not usually visible at the time of purchase. For example, service and reliability are reasons why brand name adds value. James C. Crimmins, Better Measurement and Management of Brand Value
Can We Measure the Value Added By a Brand Name? We often measure the content (qualities) implied by the brand name. We rarely measure the amount and the breadth. The amount of value added can be measured if we note three basic issues: 1. Value added is a relative concept, “Value added to what?” 2. Brand value is abstract and needs to be removed from such factors as special pricing, and special promotions, which only serve to cloud the issue. 3. The metric which is most understandable for value added is dollars.
Equity Exercise Select one of your products or services in one of your markets. Product or service? Market? List content of value added. Specific qualities implied by brand name. Such qualities may or may not be visible at time of purchase (e.g. service, support, reliability).
Equity Exercise Continued Content of value added? Better, worse or same as competition? Why? Compared to last year? Division Breadth. Compared to other products and services, does the product benefit and contribute more, less, or the same to the brand name? Compared to last year, is the breadth better, worse or the same?
Equity Exercise Continued Amount of Breadth. Can you estimate the amount on the basis of price? Compared to last year, is the amount better, worse or the same?
