Recognising and evaluating brand equity in South African business to gain financial and operational benefits

Sinclair, Roger 11 June 2015 (has links)
Thesis (Ph.D.)--University of the Witwatersrand, Faculty of Commerce, 2002. / This thesis presents a new approach to the measurement of consumer brand equity outcomes. The approach links financial performance with consumer behaviour to acknowledge the true source of a brand's strength. The methodology developed can be used to value brands for a variety of purposes ranging from corporate accounting, to taxation, to trademark protection and to capital market analysis. Its most significant application might well become the re-positioning of marketing as the leader of a company-wide activity that contributes to and protects shareholder wealth. The study concludes that the function of marketing has become too introspective and is in danger of allowing its essential role of building and maintaining brands to be taken over by the company as a whole. Brands today are becoming the responsibility of the board and marketing is increasingly seen as a function that deals with certain extemal agencies and buys their services. The author has studied the extant valuation methodologies and has found that they avoid incorporating consumer perceptions of brands: the main reason why brands exist and thrive. The explanation for this is to avoid what the financial community call the "soft issues". And yet it is these so called "soft issues" that determine the value of the brand. Brand equity is defined as the value a brand adds to a non-branded, or commodity, version. This value is invested in the brand by its users and to ignore this in a valuation methodology is to omit a key variable. The methodology presented in this thesis deals with this fundamental requirement and departs from the conventional approaches in four substantive ways: • It uses the Capital Asset Pricing Model to estimate the cost of capital which acts as a proxy for the commodity or non-branded version. • An adapted Delphi approach iteration survey isolates the super profits attributable to the brand from the other profit generating resources. • By analysing the category in which the brand sells according to four defining variables - longevity, leadership, barriers to entry, and vulnerability - time markers are set for notional category dominant and marginal brands. • Survey based consumer data provides quantitative statistics that are reduced to Brand Knowledge Structure (BKS) scores. These are substituted for the dominant and marginal brand markers to establish the Brand Expected Life. The brand value, captured by this approach, is the capitalised present value of the future cash flows. In developing a valuation approach that incorporates consumer behaviour a metric has been developed that links marketing activities directly with shareholder value; which raises the status of the marketing function and which provides the company with a tool to measure return on marketing investment and monitor the value of what in many cases is the firm's most important asset.

Consumer evaluations of brand extensions : the influence of brand trust, brand affection and perception of fit on Thai consumers

Kowathanakul, Suwanna January 2006 (has links)
The factors which influence consumers evaluations of brand extensions have been an important research issue in the area of brand extensions. Regardless of its importance, there is a lack of study in brand extensions in Asia, particularly in Thailand. / Based on the review of previous research of brand extensions and integration into the elements of the conceptual combination literature, a conceptual model for evaluating brand extensions, which is relevant to Thai consumers, is proposed. The consumers evaluations of brand extensions are examined using similar and dissimilar hypothetical extensions of two different brands. / There were two main stages in data collection process; the focus groups and questionnaire survey. The first stage, involving the focus groups, was conducted to select the product category, original brands and hypothetical extensions which were relevant to target respondents. The second stage, the questionnaire survey, was conducted to examine the consumers responses to brand extensions. Two thousand participants were surveyed on the four hypothetical extensions derived from two original brands across the proposed scale for the main study. The probability sampling with a simple random sampling method was selected for the main study. The usable response rate was eighty-one percent. Thus, a total of one thousand and six hundred usable questionnaires were obtained during one and a half months period. / The findings of this study extended the brand extensions research by examining consumers trust, affection on the original brand and rational and emotional perception of fit between the original brand and extensions which are relatively new in the brand extension literature. Three different brand extensions revealed that brand trust, brand affection, emotional perception of fit and rational perception of fit played a significant role in evaluating brand extensions which in turn had an impact on the likelihood of trying brand extensions. Among these factors, emotional perception of fit was found to have the most significant impact in influencing the overall evaluation. Hence, Thai consumers relied less on rational perception of fit than emotional perception of fit when evaluating brand extensions. This study also found that brand trust on the original brand was particularly important in evaluating similar brand extension. Moreover, brand affection played a role in this study as it had a direct influence on the likelihood of trying brand extensions for similar extensions. / The present study contributes by extending prior brand extension research about consumer evaluations of brand extensions in the Thai context. The consumers trust and affection towards the original brand and their perception of fit between the original brand and extension are important consideration in implementing successful brand extension strategy. The present study provides an increased understanding of how consumers evaluate brand extensions in the Thai context as well as providing useful managerial application to businesses and managers in Thailand. / Thesis (PhDBusinessAdministration)--University of South Australia, 2006
