  • Many measures of brand equity would inappropriately locate equity with Isuzu instead of with Honda. Demonstrates that outcomes are not reliable source for equity calculation.
  • This is a generalized picture of brand valuation. Brand-level outcomes are aggregated up to generate brand value; thus, brand equity and brand value are identical constructs.
  • The question to ask is, “What drives the observable individual-level outcomes?”
  • The link between Brand Equity and Individual-level outcomes is hard to understand (similar to the relationship between attitude and behavior), but it’s the key to building valuable brand equity that can be leveraged.
  • The loss function helps you make a managerial decision after you understand the data-generating process (likelihood). In the same way, I must first understand equity before I can understand how it influences marketplace action.
  • 1. Rolex; aspirational brands 2. Objectively good; dominant attribute 3. Pampers 4. Lava Soap 5. Niche brands don’t seek general awareness; value brands don’t seek a price premium 6. Avoid “smoke & mirrors”; assuming that brand equity is the difference between expert and novice evaluation misses equity that is not tied up in benefit beliefs 7. How you got there; not just where you are
  • Cracker Jack example.
  • Also consider Snapple example.
