What is the purpose of a brand awareness survey?

The goal of a brand awareness survey is to measure the proportion of your target population that knows your brand, your products/services, your company.

The target population naturally varies depending on your industry and the nature of your offer. At IntoTheMinds, we can conduct brand awareness surveys in all sectors, even the most specific ones. You will find examples of studies in B2C and B2B at the bottom of this page.

A brand awareness survey allows you to clearly establish the situation of your brand/company and to implement marketing actions to consolidate or improve your position. We deliver pragmatic recommendations to help you.

How to measure brand awareness?

There are many ways to measure brand awareness. The most common are:

  • Top of Mind Awareness (TOM): When consumers are asked to name a brand in a specific product or service category, the “top of mind” brand is the one that comes to mind first.
  • Spontaneous Awareness: brands that are recalled without help when respondents are asked to list all the brands they know in a given category.
  • Aided Awareness: when consumers recognize a brand after being helped or stimulated, for example, by seeing a list of brands or a logo.

We generally complement the measurement of these constructs with questions related to:

  • competition
  • price perception
  • brand choice criteria
  • purchase habits over the last 12 months

Should you prefer a survey or a qualitative approach?

Quantitative methods (such as surveys, for example) are preferable for reliably measuring brand awareness. We use our B2B and B2C panels to deliver results on several hundred respondents. This approach limits the margin of error and also offers numerous possibilities in terms of result analysis (analysis by segment, geography, …).

Qualitative methods are much less frequently used. The size of the sample indeed poses a problem as it does not allow extrapolating results. However, in some very specific situations, the qualitative approach is the only possible one. This is the case in B2B in highly concentrated sectors or when the profile of the targets is so specific that it is illusory to want to reach them online.

What information is delivered at the end of the study?

Our firm will deliver directly usable information:

  • awareness of your company compared to the competition
  • customer segments where your awareness is strongest/weakest
  • analysis of possible correlations with brand awareness results
  • possible actions to undertake
