Market research tools such as brand recall surveys and recognition surveys serve as a great tool for gauging the degree to which people know about the brand. Apart from this, personal interviews , focus groups , online traffic , social media sentiment are some of the useful tools that can help elaborate on this subject.

High brand awareness implies a high brand equity as it is indicative of the brand’s popularity and unique proposition.

Brand relevance

Brand relevance is a projection of the brand’s ability to design and offer products and services tailor made to suit customer preferences and needs. High brand relevance allows brands to charge premium prices without the risk of losing out on customers.

 Transactional feedback and CSAT are a preferred choice for understanding relevance. They provide first hand information about customer’s level of satisfaction with the current levels of service.

 Targeted customer segments are the centre piece of such studies to measure the brand’s level of resonance and impact on customer mindset
