The top brands in today’s world all have something in common. They’re all instantly recognizable. Think about it – the golden arches, the white apple, the green, and white siren, and more – are all likely burned into your brain.
They represent their respective brands (McDonald’s, Apple, and Starbucks) and truly appeal to your sense of familiarity because no matter where you are in the world you know exactly what company you’re looking at.
This is branding at its best, and it’s one of the best examples of why it’s important to be great at branding in today’s world. Having a brand that’s recognizable, cohesive, and that resonates with your audience is essential.
For example, goofy branding which appeals to teenagers will not necessarily resonate with a beauty brand that targets consumers who are 50+ years old.
So, how do you make sure you’ve hit the jackpot with your newest branding? And what can be changed with your current branding to make your more recognizable, relatable, and friendly to your audience? This is where your brand name testing comes in. Keep reading to learn all about the easy-to-implement branding survey.
A branding survey tests your branding on all angles, including appeal, appropriateness, trustworthiness, innovativeness, and several other categories. Through feedback from your users, you’ll be able to learn about where your company is the weakest in your branding and fix it using that feedback.
Branding surveys don’t have to be complicated. In fact, the shorter and simpler they are the more likely you are to get a diverse range of responses from your users. If you want to see a sample of a brand name testing template structure, there’s one below under that heading. That said, even if the survey itself is simple, you still want to maximize the information you get out of them so you can use them to improve.
Adding follow-up questions is a great way to get the most information you possibly can. You can set follow-up questions to each of the aspects tested in the survey, so if someone evaluates your brand poorly in any of the characteristics (refer to the template) you’ll be able to ask why that is and how you can improve.
It’s amazing how many customers are responding to our surveys. For every dollar we spend on a Survicate subscription, we generate about $25 in additional revenue.
