NORWICH, ENGLAND, June 04, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- According to this year's BrandZlist list
, the 100 most valuable global brands have pushed up to nearly $3trn (GBP1.8trn). Simon Reynolds
, Managing Director of Iconic Strategies
, says that with rising brand values it will become more and more difficult to get into the top 100 in the coming years. "Brands need to focus on the value they bring to the consumer and think about how they can personalise the customer experience in order to keep up with the competition," explains Simon Reynolds. The brands that are most successful are gaining 'share to life'. That means they are making themselves essential to consumers.
As outlined in an article on Marketing Week, for this year's BrandZ list compiled by Millward Brown, the research examined three key metrics to establish the power of a specific brand: looking at how meaningful, different and salient a brand is. Millward Brown Optimor creates the BrandZ list by taking the financial value generated by a specific brand and multiplying it against a brand contribution measure, based on interviews with more than 170,000 consumers across 30 countries worldwide. The findings, covering over 20,000 brands, help determine the extent to which a brand's profits are generated by its ability to create loyalty.
The research also reveals that brand power has considerably grown in recent years, from an index score of 165 in 2008 to 211 in 2014. "I wouldn't be surprised if this figure continues to rise in the coming years," says Simon Reynolds of Iconic Strategies. "The economy is growing and consumer confidence is expected to increase further. Consumers have the choice to select the brand they feel is most suitable for them," adds Simon Reynolds.
