Data is important. Data, compiled over time, is critical. It’s one thing to know where your brand is at a specific moment in time, but having multiple data points over a period of months or years, helps illustrate the direction your brand is going, relative to your competitors. Tracking studies gauge how familiar consumers are with a brand, company, product or service; and how that awareness changes over time.

Tracking studies can answer some of these questions:

  • Are you being out-spent?
  • Are you being out-maneuvered?
  • Is your brand responsive to marketing?
  • If so, which channels provide the best benefit?
    • TV, print, social media…
  • What do consumers think of the ads?

Here are some common Brand, Category & Advertising Tracking measures:

  • Top of Mind Awareness (TOM)
  • Aided & Unaided Message Recall
  • Aided & Unaided Advertising Awareness
  • Aided & Unaided Brand Awareness
  • Intent to Purchase
  • Brand Attributes (including your competitors’!!)
  • Ad Diagnostics
  • Brand Perceptions

Tracking studies can be critical to demonstrating ROI to stakeholders. (i.e.  You get to keep your job, you get more money to do your job…)

Tracking studies

  • …can identify whether your product or brand is leading the market and why or why not.
  • …can determine whether or not past marketing efforts have been successful, while helping you to improve communication with your customers or clients.
  • …can help build a case for increased marketing budgets.
  • …can help determine ideal media mix over time, and demonstrate when a particular channel is starting to lose effectiveness.
