Brand insights for a new era


We're living in a whole new era. One where the customer is in charge. People no longer buy products. They don’t buy services. They buy brands based on emotion, attachment, and purpose. They buy brands that they simply can’t resist. People - across every market and across every single product that they buy - now expect the ultimate brand experience.

Brands that deliver will win. Those that don't will struggle.

GfK Brand Architect gives you the blueprint for success in today’s environment and beyond with insights to drive change, add value, and act on what really matters.

A blueprint to unleash the true potential of your brand

The world’s most successful brands are thriving in the new age. That’s because these brands now focus on delivering the ultimate brand experience. This fundamentally changes how you need to understand your brand and evaluate its brand performance.

The same old metrics simply don't cut it anymore. Insights and brand tracking studies of the old world only give you part of the picture. They don’t tie your brand back to market performance. Nor do they inspire you to take action on what matters. Now, you need much more to measure your brand impact. You need a 360 degree understanding of your brand and its relationship with the people you want to target so that you can drive meaningful change and create experiences that connect with consumers on a deeper level.

  • Consumers are constantly exposed to brand messaging and other stimuli and so their purchase decision represents the combination of both emotional and rational aspects. Therefore, it is essential to understand all the factors that make a consumer prefer one brand over another. GfK’s new brand framework helped us do exactly this. Using the approach, we understood better how purchase decisions were made, and in particular how and why consumers switch between brands. GfK Brand Architect gave us new insights and it helped us develop more personalized experiences that better engaged with our customers, and ultimately, help create their lifetime value for Nespresso.

  • GfK’s Brand Health Tracker help us to understand our brand strengths and opportunities compared to the competition, but more than it, it has given us clear action steps to improve our brands. For me, it offers a great combination of identifying the strategic long-term projects that we need to tackle – as well as quick wins. The team at GfK is both highly professional and reliable. The presentations given to our country teams were on point, perfectly communicating complex topics and methodologies.

  • Last year, we took the challenge to change provider and go with the GfK Brand Architect framework for our multi-country brand tracker. We wanted to re-establish the basis as our previous approach didn't really work for the 14 countries we are covering as part of our brand research program.Prior to the delivery to the countries, we worked closely with GfK to make tangible and relevant business recommendations. Feedback from the countries has been very positive; they trust and feel confident about the results they receive from GfK Brand Architect. The evidence is that they're using the insights, which for me is one of the biggest achievements.
