Brand Audit

a brand audit is a more externally, consumer-focused exercise to assess the health of the brand, uncover its sources of brand equity, and suggest ways to improve and leverage its equity

From the perspective of the firm, what products and services are currently being offered to consumers, and how are they being marketed and branded?

From the perspective of the consumer, what deeply held perceptions and beliefs create the true meaning of brands and products?

Page 4

Brand Audit (2)

Brand audits are particularly useful background for managers as they set up their marketing plans and can have profound implications on brands’ strategic direction and resulting performance.

Page 5

Brand Inventory

The purpose of the brand inventory is to provide a current, comprehensive profile of how all the products and services sold by a company are marketed and branded. Profiling each product or service requires marketers to catalogue the following in both visual and written form for each product or service sold: the names, logos, symbols, characters, packaging, slogans, or other trademarks used; the inherent product attributes or characteristics of the brand; the pricing, communications, and distribution policies; and any other relevant marketing activity related to the brand.

Brand Inventory – Red Hat

Often firms set up a “war room” where all the various marketing activities and programs can be displayed or accessed.

Page 7

Useful Insight from Digital Inventory

Outdated brand accounts that have fallen into disuse, and perhaps need to be closed or updated;

Overlapping brand assets which can be merged or deleted, to ensure a more streamlined set of assets;

Existing brand accounts with information that is either inaccurate or not up-to-date. For example, brand logos may feature outdated colors or design, which may need to be updated;

Particular digital and social media channels where the brand does not have a presence—this could be a starting point for reworking the strategy going forward.

Qualitative Research

Brand Personality

Consider the “Big 5” factors of Brand Personality

See Figure 10.4 in PPTs

Don’t use all. Pick one. Maybe two at most.

Perceptual Map

Create a simple perceptual map similar to that in Figure 10.8

Use headers and competitors relevant to your company

Explanation of issues Issue / problem to be considered critically is stated clearly and described comprehensively, delivering all relevant information necessary for full understanding. Issue / problem to be considered critically is stated, described, and clarified so that understanding is not seriously impeded by omissions. Issue / problem to be considered critically is stated but description leaves some terms undefined, ambiguities unexplored, boundaries undetermined, and / or backgrounds unknown. Issue / problem to be considered critically is stated without clarification or description.
Evidence Selecting and using information to investigate a point of view or conclusion Information is taken from source(s) with enough interpretation / evaluation to develop a comprehensive analysis or syntheses. Viewpoints of experts are questioned thoroughly. Information is taken from source(s) with enough interpretation / evaluation to develop a coherent analysis or synthesis. Viewpoints or experts are subject to questioning. Information is taken from sources(s) with some interpretation / evaluation, but not enough to develop a coherent analysis or synthesis. Viewpoints of experts are taken as mostly fact, with little questioning. Information is taken from sources(s) without any interpretation / evaluation. Viewpoints of experts are taken as fact, without question.
Influence of context and assumptions Thoroughly (systematically and methodically) analyzes own and others' assumptions and carefully evaluates the relevance of contexts when presenting a position.

Student's position (perspective, theses / hypothesis) Specific position (perspective, theses / hypothesis) is imaginative, taking into account the complexities of an issue. Limits of position (perspective, thesis / hypothesis) are acknowledged. Others' points of view are synthesized within position (perspective, theses / hypothesis). Specific position (perspective, thesis / hypothesis) takes into account the complexities of an issue. Others' points of view are acknowledged within position (perspective, thesis / hypothesis). Specific position (perspective, thesis / hypothesis) acknowledges different sides of an issue. Specific position (perspective, thesis / hypothesis) is stated, but is simplistic and obvious.
Conclusions and related outcomes (implications and consequences) Conclusions and related outcomes (consequences and implications) are logical and reflect student's informed evaluation and ability to place evidence and perspectives discussed in priority order. Conclusion is logically tied to range of information, including opposing viewpoints; related outcomes (consequences and implications) are identified clearly. Conclusion is logically tied to information (because information is chosen to fit the desired conclusion); some related outcomes (consequences and implications) are identified clearly. Conclusion is inconsistently tied to some of the information discussed; related outcomes (consequences and implications) are oversimplified.
