Perception is everything – at least it is in the mind of consumers. How is your brand perceived – is it recognizable and a positive reflection of your values and purpose? In a recent study, three of the biggest names in the tech world proved their customer perception is positive and their brand is recognizable. What lessons can companies large and small learn from these customer favorites?
The study, conducted by FutureBrand, asked consumers to rank 100 top global companies on the basis of 18 different brand attributes. Consumers were asked to think about factors such as sense of purpose, consistency, authenticity, pleasure, innovation, and indispensability for each company. Google took the top spot, followed by Apple and Microsoft. Additionally, nearly half of the respondents in the study indicated that they ‘strongly agree’ that Google has all 18 of the attributes measured.
It is obvious that the tech powerhouses know a thing or two about positive consumer perception. It underscores the importance of ensuring that all aspects of your brand are in sync. Consumers recognize and value brands that have a strong identity and unity of purpose. What are some ways that you can enhance your brand’s perception?
