Winners and Losers of Brand Mental Availability

THERE ARE 4 MAIN CRITERIA TO BUILDING BRAND MENTAL AVAILABILITY.

Brand Mental Availability is all about creating and leveraging distinctive and memorable brand assets to put your brand in the forefront of the consumer’s mind without having to lift the tiniest mental muscle. So when they come to make a purchase they won’t think twice about coming to you.

So, what are the 4 criteria? 

Distinctive brand assets. Think imagery, logo, fonts. Are these core brand assets distinctive enough to stand out against competitors? 

Associations. Are there clear links between your brand and the consumer’s needs that trigger purchase?

Consistency. Does your brand consistently present itself in the same way whenever it features? 

Cognitive ease. Are your brand assets and story used in a way that’s easy to understand, across any channel?

We use these criteria to investigate and score the level of Mental Availability brands have already built in the home category.

    Behavioural Science - What things are worth

    The behavioural science behind what things are worth

    Does value mean the same thing to you and your customers?

    The behavioural science behind what things are worth.

    Do you have control of your brand’s value perception?

    This Thought-Starter should make you question if you’ve got control of your brand’s value perception, and what to do to make sure you have. Why should a loft conversion, a Volkswagen Golf or ten shares in Amazon cost the same as each other? Why should a tin of beans cost more at a corner shop than a supermarket? 

    The answer lies in value perception.

    Value is the balance between what you want (your MOTIVATION), and what you’re prepared to give (your MEANS).

    Defining how and why your offer represents value in your market is a big part of any marketer’s job, and this thought starter is only scratching the surface. 

    A behavioural approach like ours provides a structured and logical way to take control of your value proposition, and break the job into discrete and manageable elements. 

    Learn how to start thinking behaviourally about value by:

    • Reducing the MEANS – make your offer feel less costly. 
    • Increase the MOTIVATION – make your offer feel worth more.

    If you’re interested in understanding more about how we do this you need to read this Thought-Starter.

      Is your POS influencing behaviour?

      Is your POS influencing behaviour?

      POS strategy is generally well established in most retail businesses and given its organisational complexity is rarely reviewed.

      But when you start to think about it, it has the potential to be one of the most influential factors in determining consumer behaviour in store.

      It’s at this decision-making coal face that understanding and harnessing behavioural science is at its most powerful.

      Just stand in any of your aisles… you will see behavioural science in action.

        APPLYING

        BEHAVIOURAL SCIENCE

        IN MARKETING

        Our latest report, Applying Behavioural Science in Marketing, shares seven cognitive biases that you can use to take your marketing to the next level today.

        Applying behavioural science in marketing

        7 Cognitive biases you can leverage today

        Our latest report, Applying Behavioural Science in Marketing, shares seven cognitive biases that you can use to take your marketing to the next level today.

        Professor Dan Ariely humorously refers to us as ‘predictably irrational’, mocking the human tendency to make suboptimal decisions in predictable patterns. This is why marketers cannot afford to ignore behavioural science – it is the tool for unpacking these decisions and can shed light on why people buy or don’t buy your brand.

        We offer practical explanations, advice and examples of:

        1. Status quo bias: A preference for things to stay as they are and resistance to making an effort (also known as defaults).
        2. Bizarreness effect: Things that are bizarre (especially those that are incongruous out of context) stand out and are more memorable.
        3. Authority bias: An irrational trust in the judgment of experts.
        4. Herd behaviour: Desire to mimic the behaviour of others.
        5. Hyperbolic discounting: Irrational emphasis on what matters today and a preference for immediate payoffs.
        6. Anchoring: We use benchmarks to evaluate options, no matter how arbitrary the anchors may be.
        7. Reciprocity bias: We respond in kind to even the smallest act of generosity or altruism.

              The Future of Marketing

              Trends shaping the future of marketing

              We’re always looking at ways to add value to the communication we send out, which is why we’ve created our The Future of Marketing report.

              We’ve taken views and insights from experts in the worlds of advertising, social media, and turned them into a free e-book.

              Aimed at marketers, brand managers and anyone with an interest in emerging trends and what’s shaping shopper behaviour. As well as getting up to speed on the latest thinking, it will help generate new ideas and ways to develop future campaigns.

              The Future of Marketing is a response to our rapidly changing environment. Only in the last year in politics, we voted to leave the EU and on the other side of the pond Trump gained power. In retail, Amazon drones lead a new era of delivery and tap and pay became the norm. In marketing, Google officially launched expanded text ads, while Snapchat took the helm in the social media landscape. Twitter closed video social network Vine, and ‘trust’ became the word on every marketer’s lips as ‘fake news’ drove a skepticism evolution among audiences.

              2017 will go on to bring ever-greater change. Change that will disrupt entire industries as well as our personal lives.

              What’s inside?

              • The bigger picture
                • Future shoppers – Millennials come of age
                • Media landscape – Power of one
