Branding Strategy Insider | Measuring Brand Equity In A Busy World

Branding Strategy Insider | Measuring Brand Equity In A Busy World | Branding | Scoop.it
I read your article on Measuring Brand Equity for B2B Brands and it was very meaningful. I am currently working on a Brand Strategy for my B2B company and the yardsticks you offer in your article make sense. However, I have a problem with kind of research tool that could be used. My Target market is mostly Nigerian mid to high managers/CEOs who will definitely not have time or will feel awkward to fill in surveys. I would like to know what kind of research tool is most appropriate for a market like Nigeria where people even hardly check their emails.
Holley Jacobs's insight:

I enjoyed this article very much. Branding is so important today and should be number one when started to build your name on the internet . One wrong move and disaster happens. That is more difficult to clean up than if you just be proactive.

I love branding...it is one of the first things I learned about when I first started internet marketing online 4 years ago.

It is one of my favorite things to do and probably why I love internet marketing so much. People get frustrated due to the constant change but I really love it.
