  3. 3. . . Consumers are attracted by the radiance and gravity of a brand. The level of awareness it generates, its relevance and appeal. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Consumers then experience the products or services that the brand holds within its portfolio . In this brand mapping system we represent the brand as a sun, called a BrandStar and its products as ProductPlanets, these are mapped to orbit around it.
  4. 4. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . Like other brand mapping tools, this system helps you to clearly define a brand and position its products. However, this mapping system also visually represents how well each product extension fits within a brand system .
  5. 5. Defining A Brand Star Brand Core – the essence of what the brand represents. Brand Environment – the values, distinctive features and heritage that define the brand. Brand Photosphere – the defining sensory elements that people describe when interacting with the brand. Brand Gravity – the strength of attraction the BrandStar exerts. This is measured through brand appeal and consideration measures, compared to competitor brands in the same category. Brand Magnitude – how brightly the brand appears to shine through measures of spontaneous awareness and prompted awareness . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Defining A Product Planet Planet Core – the essence of what the product represents Planet Environment – the rational, distinctive characteristics , performance features and heritage of the product Planet Population – profile the consumers that you target for acquisition and also those you retain.

These are called ProductMoons – the smaller satellites that orbit their parent ProductPlanet. They may be detailed in the same way as planets – with core, environment, population, benefit and atmosphere specified for each one.
