Brand Equity: An Overview

Introduction

This note provides a resource to aid in understanding brand equity: its creation, maintenance, measurement, and value. There are many different perspectives on brands, and we will not attempt to fully integrate these views. We do, however, hope to provide a broad summary of current thoughts on the subject. According to David Aaker, marketing professor at the Haas School of Business and chairman of Prophet Consulting:

Far more than a name and a logo, it is an organization's promise to a customer to deliver what the brand stands for not only in terms of functional benefits but also emotional, self-expressive, and social benefits. But a brand is more than delivering on a promise. It is also a journey, an evolving relationship based on perceptions and experiences that a customer has every time he or she connects to the brand.

Keywords: brand equity, brand, brand strategy, marketing
