What is the Corporate Branding Index?
- CoreBrand’s proprietary database of financial information, advertising spending, and brand image measures for over 1,000 of the world’s best brands
- Financial information acquired public sources — ValueLine, Bloomberg, Thomson Financial and others
- Brand image ratings (BrandPower, familiarity, favorability) are derived from annual survey of more than 8,000 business decision-makers from the top 20% of U.S. businesses. This senior business audience (VP level and above) represents the investment community, potential business partners, and business customers across 54 key industries.
Individuals impacting corporate brands from two important perspectives:
BrandPower is a measure of size (familiarity) and quality (favorability).
A weighted percentage of survey respondents who are familiar with the brand being evaluated. Familiarity is rated on a five point scale, respondents are considered to be familiar with a brand if they state that they know more than the company name only.
Those familiar with a corporation are then asked favorability dimensions, overall reputation, perception of management, and investment potential. Favorability attributes are evaluated on a 4-point scale.
Familiarity and favorability are then combined into a single BrandPower score.
BrandPower ranking compare the size and quality of a brand to all other brands in the Corporate Branding Index. The BrandPower rankings provide a market-view evaluation of brand strength regardless of industry affiliation.
Measuring CoreBrand Equity
The corporate brand is an asset that contributes millions or even billions of dollars to a company’s stock price and market valuation.
- Understanding your corporate brand’s value is the first step toward managing this fundamental asset.
- Brand strength data from the Corporate Branding Index are updated quarterly.
- Brand strength ratings and each company’s financial data are used in CoreBrand’s statistical model to determine the percentage of market capitalization that is directly derived from the corporate brand. Once that percentage is calculated, a dollar value is assigned.
