The BERA Brand Management Maturity Model

How leading marketers maximize investments to grow brand equity and measure the financial impact of brand.


Learn the answers to the most common brand positioning questions.
In order to build a winning brand, you have to know what your brand currently means to the people that matter and prioritize those elements that will help the brand grow. BERA provides a fact-based approach to understanding what associations people have with the brand and which of elements should serve as the brand’s foundational positioning. The Brand Explorer uses a battery of more than 60 attributes to dimensionalize your brand’s Purpose and Emotional connection with an audience and contextualizes that relative to a competitive set of your choosing. This helps to uncover what existing associations people have with your brand and where there are strengths and weaknesses relative to those competitors. In order to win with this audience, we will need to optimize our brand’s positioning to their needs and expectations.

Optimizing a brand’s positioning requires you to not only understand what associations consumers have with your brand and how they compare to competitors but which of those associations should be prioritized and de-prioritized based on how important they are to that audience. An optimal positioning begins with understanding three things: 1) what drives this audience’s relationship with your brand or would have the largest impact on their overall perceptions of your brand, 2) where does your brand have headroom to grow, and 3) where does the brand have permission to grow into. BERA’s automated driver model highlights a brand’s optimal positioning based on these three factors providing a fact based approach to optimizing the brand’s positioning which is specific to that audience.

If your brand positioning is based on aspirations and grounded in the actual expectations and needs of an audience, there is a high risk that the positioning could miss its market. Any positioning work should have a firm foundation in data and insights to avoid wasting resources and time on a strategy that isn’t going to get you very far. Yet an overly simplistic approach to prioritize or set the positioning is still a common downfall even for those using data and insights to develop their position. Many approaches rely on simple bi-variate correlations to understand which elements of a brand’s positioning are most important to a given audience. These ignore the amount of headroom there is to grow those elements and whether or not those elements fit cohesively with the brand’s existing image in the market. A robust approach to positioning should rely on a multivariate model to assess impact or importance, incorporate some measure of headroom for growth, and limit how far an element can be from the brand’s existing perceptions in the market.
