What does brand equity mean to you? Depending on whether you’re a CEO or a CFO, a marketer or a shareholder, you could see it as primarily financial in value, or you could consider it an indispensable marketing tool.

In reality, brand equity is both – and more. BEST will help you discover:

  • The strength and prominence of your brand in the marketplace
  • The qualities that distinguish it from the competition
  • The added commercial value your brand gives your product
  • Positive customer perceptions and experience of your brand
  • How to segment your target market by their true potential

Discover and target your BEST prospects

Roy Morgan Research’s BEST methodology allows you to segment your customers according to purchasing habits, identify the risks and/or opportunities each segment presents, and thereby assess each segment’s value to your business.

BEST divides your market into the following segments:

  • Core Customers: loyal die-hards who believe in your brand’s unique value and won’t be swayed to buy your competitor’s product even if it costs less
  • Core Competitors: your competitors’ loyal die-hard customers
  • Core Changeables: behaviourally loyal until now but with low brand affinity – ripe for defection to a savvy competitor
  • Repertoire Customers: consumers who shop around and purchase by price, for whom your brand is one of a ‘repertoire’ they use and consider
  • Repertoire Competitors: consumers who shop around and purchase by price, but their ‘repertoire’ does not include your brand
  • Light Fair Prospects: customers who have not needed your product in the past but may in the future
  • Light Poor Prospects: people who will never need your product

From there, we help you decide which segment/s to focus your marketing attentions on and which media channels will reach them most effectively.

For example, you may find that although your core customers account for the largest portion of your profit, investing heavily in a major marketing campaign directed at them is not the best way to ensure future growth.
