Of brands and bunk: the Yougov BrandIndex hits town

It's a tough life if you
are a branded Kat ...
For all those readers who like quick statistics (you know who you are!), the results of the Midyear 2012 YouGov BrandIndex which were released earlier this week. The methodology is simple. Respondents were asked:
"If you've heard anything about the brand in the last two weeks, through advertising, news or word of mouth, was it positive or negative?" 
The BrandIndex is an overall brand health measure – an average of the six measures of brand’s health: Impression, Quality, Value, Satisfaction, Advocacy and Reputation. According to its website, BrandIndex claims to have interviewed 2,000 nationally representative respondents each day.

Survey response rankings are provided for the US, UK, Chile, Saudi Arabia, Sweden, Germany (where Nivea comes out top), France, Denmark, the United Arab Emirates, Chile, Mexico and Norway.  The only Kat in the rankings is Kit Kat, which rates highly in Saudi Arabia.

Here are the Top Buzz results for the UK and the USA

In the United Kingdom:
1. BBC iPlayer 
2. Amazon

3. Marks & Spencer

4. John Lewis

5. MoneySavingExpert.com

6. Apple

7. Sainsbury’s

8. Cathedral City

9. Samsung

10. Google
In the United States:
1. Subway

2. Cheerios

3. Amazon.com

4. History Channel

5. Ford

6. Discovery Channel

7. Lowe’s

8. Olive Garden

9. YouTube

10. Google
The IPKat is trying to formulate some great truths that can be drawn from the two nations' respective preferences.   Can anyone help him?

Merpel is much amused by the observation that, while Henry Ford famously exclaimed: "History is bunk", the Ford brand trails the History Channel in the US list.

  1. Saw the Yougov results – it demonstrates two passions or perhaps two different ways of handling a recession:

    Food & TV in the States
    Technology and Shopping in the UK


All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
