Capturing the moments that build – or tear down – brand equity

GfK’s Brand Dimensions system reveals the
ways that brands live in consumers’ minds

To bring a level of clarity and practicality to the art of branding and brand measurement, we need to strip away long-held assumptions and return to the true core of brand meaning – the emotional relationship with the consumer. We need to go beyond brand models to understand how brands develop in the first place – the building blocks of brand identity.

The truth is that brand equity is built one experience at a time – and that good feelings can also be squandered with just one or two bad encounters. GfK has developed a new, instinctual model of branding that consists of what we call Brand Dimensions™ – positive and negative impressions that come before equity in the timeline of brand relationships. Brand Dimensions™ are difficult to dislodge; once all brand experiences have gelled in consumers’ minds, and they “feel” they truly know the brand, it can be very difficult to change that perspective.
