What is Brand Name Testing?

Your company’s brand name will play a significant role in shaping your brand image and will also act as an identifier that distinguishes your brand from competitors. As your brand name can play such a big role in shaping your brand image, it is important to pick a name that will resonate with your target audience and will fit the brand image that you want to portray. This is where brand name testing comes into the picture. 

Brand Name Testing involves presenting your target audience with a variety of brand name options and asking them to provide feedback on each one. This research helps you make an informed decision while choosing a brand name that is best suited to your company using qualitative and quantitative backing.

Pick the Brand Names you want to Test

The first step in brand name testing is to create a list of brand names that you want to test. These brand names should be ones that you and your coworkers are already confident of. The number of brand names you choose to include will determine the kind of survey design you select.

These are some of the most common survey designs: 

    • Monadic Testing: This research design involves showing participants a single stimuli in isolation. It gives you a measure of how appealing a certain brand name is without skewing the respondent’s perception with the influence of other stimuli/brand names. 
    • Sequential Monadic Design: This research design involves asking respondents for feedback on multiple stimuli. However, each brand name shown must be evaluated separately rather than evaluation through comparison.

Select the Parameters by which you will assess the Brand Names

The next step is to select the parameters, or metrics, by which you want respondents to assess your brand name. These are a few metrics by which you can measure how good a brand name is:

  • Uniqueness: Does the brand name stand out against competitors or is it easily confused with other brand names?
  • Pronounceability: Is the brand name easy to pronounce or is it common for people to mispronounce it?
  • Appeal: Is the brand name appealing to your target audience?
  • Purchase Intent: Does the brand name motivate people to purchase the brand’s products/services?

The metric(s) you select should depend on what your goals are for your brand name. If you want a brand name that is memorable and stands out, the most valuable metric for you to measure would be uniqueness.
