III. BRAND EQUITY

"Brand equity is a set of brand assets and liabilities related to a brand, names and symbols that increase or decrease the value given by an item or service to a company or customer."

"Brand equity or brand strength is the control on purchase exerted by a brand, and, by virtue of this, the brand as an asset that can be exploited to produce revenue."

"Brand equity is the positive differential effect that knowing the brand name has on customer response to the product or service".

A strong brand has a clear, valuable, and continuous differentiating power as the spearhead of a company's competitiveness and helps in marketing strategies. Brand equity is the strength of a brand that adds or decreases the value of the brand itself which can be known from the consumer's response to the goods or services sold.

Brand equity is measured by how loyal consumers are to a brand based on seven indicators:
  1. Leadership:The ability to influence the market including prices and non-price attributes.
  2. Stability: The ability to maintain customer loyalty.
  3. Market: Brand strength in improving the performance of retailers and distributors.
  4. Internationality: The ability of a brand to exit a geographical area or enter another area.
  5. Trend: Brands are becoming increasingly important for an industry.
  6. Support: Funds are spent to communicate the brand.
  7. Protection: Brands have legality.

"Brand awareness is the ability of a prospective buyer to recognize or recall that a brand is part of a particular brand category."

"Brand awareness is the recognition and recall of a brand and its differentiation from other brands in the field."

Four levels of brand awareness:

a. Unaware of brand

It is the lowest level in the brand awareness pyramid where consumers are not aware of a brand.

b. Brand recognition

Minimum level of brand awareness. It is important for a buyer to choose a brand when making a purchase.

c. Brand recall

Recalling the brand is based on someone's request to mention a particular brand in a product class. This is termed recall without help, because different from the introduction task, consumers do not need to be helped to bring up the brand.

d. Top of mind

If someone directly without the help of remembrance to mention one brand, then the brand that was first spoken was the peak of the mind. The brand is the highest brand of various brands in the minds of consumers.

Four indicators to find out how much consumers are aware of a brand:
  1. Recall: How much consumers remember the brand.
  2. Recognition: How far do consumers recognize the brand.
  3. Purchase: How much consumers enter a brand into alternative choices when going to buy a product.

  1. Non-loyal buyers are not at all interested in any brands offered. Brands play a small role in purchasing decisions. This type is called consumers move brand or consumer switcher or price buyer.
  2. The consumers are satisfied with the product used or not disappointed. It does not have an adequate dimension of dissatisfaction to encourage the replacement of other brands without an additional cost. This type of buyer can be called a habitual buyer.
  3. Customers are satisfied, but bear the switching costs for time, money or risk from switching to another brand. These consumers are usually called loyal consumers who feel a sacrifice when making a replacement to another brand. This type is called satisfied buyer.
  4. The consumers really like a brand. Consumer choice on a brand is based on an association including symbols, series of experiences or high quality impressions. Buyers at this level are called brand friends who are emotionally based on choosing a brand.

Most scientists and science activists have agreed that god is nonsense, delusional and cannot be accommodated in the theory of evolution. This opinion can be understood methodologically and I agree with the sentences. But so many behaviors are very real and occur in the field.
