Distinctive Assets Measurement

Distinctive assets play an important role in building a brand’s Mental and Physical Availability. These elements need to be developed and protected over the long-term and not left to chance or intuition.

Our empirically validated approach can assess the strength of your distinctive assets and advise on the opportunities and threats for building a strong long-term brand identity.

“Results were delivered with a focus on practical implementation. We’ve been able to measure our assets and prioritise which to use in the future for different business contexts.” Lubor Höschl, Trade & Shopping Insight Manager, Asahi Europe & International

Laws of Growth Analysis

Our marketing scientists will analyse your data (e.g. standard panel data) to document the fundamental laws-of-growth patterns, and highlight any meaningful deviations that may exist.

Based on this research, we will tailor recommendations outlining the key steps you should take for profitable brand growth (e.g. identify opportunities for incremental penetration).

Brand Metrics Review

Measuring and tracking key brand metrics is crucial. However many companies are reporting the wrong brand health metrics or using tracking instruments based on flawed research.

Our experts will review your brand metrics dashboard and current tools and provide evidence-based recommendations for improvements. The key output is the identification of a suite of suitable brand health and performance metrics.

Identifying & Prioritising Category Entry Points (CEPs)

Category Entry Points (CEPs) are the building blocks of Mental Availability. This two-stage project identifies CEPs for your category, benchmarks your brand’s current performance and identifies priority CEPs to develop for the short and long term.

“Working with the Ehrenberg-Bass team on Category Entry Points was the most useful piece of research I have invested in for years. Away from brand tracking mumbo jumbo.” Keerti Nair, Head of Marketing Effectiveness and Digital Transformation, Kellogg Europe

Media decision making is an increasingly complicated task. Now more than ever, grounding decisions in the evidence is vital. Evidence-based media decision making ensures advertisers are talking to the right audience, exposing that audience to communication when and where it matters most for brand growth.

Our Media Planning Review will help ensure your media decisions are aligned with the evidence.
