Rediffusion-Y&R launches Brand Asset Valuator® 2017

Rediffusion-Y&R, one of India’s leading communication agencies, has launched the 2017 version of its proprietary tool called the Brand Asset Valuator® (BAV) based on a nationwide study of real consumers. The Brand Asset Valuator is a diagnostic tool for building and managing brands.

Y&R’s Brand Asset Valuator® or BAV, as it is popularly known, is the biggest brand database in the world – spanning across 51 countries over 24 years, covering 57,400 brands in 200 different categories, capturing the feedback of over 12,05,150 respondents.

 The Brand Asset Valuator® (BAV) India 2017 study was conducted across 16 cities, tracking the opinions of 10,529 respondents in the age group of 18-65 years. Brand Asset Valuator® (BAV) is one of its kind in the country that uses the finest global standards to harness insights gained from real consumers talking about more than 1,400 brands across 100 categories in India.

The primary differentiator of BAV is that brands are not bound within limited category definitions. The BAV gives marketers a broad perspective to understand brands and categories by looking at the consumer brand space. It measures consumer perceptions of brands and provides an understanding of how consumers evaluate brands and how brands gain and lose strength.

Commenting on the launch of BAV India 2017, Dhunji S Wadia, President, Rediffusion-Y&R India said, “BAV is a significant investment from our side, in terms of money, energy, and resources. But, we as an agency, find it to be of immense value when it comes to not just communication, but marketing decision-making. It helps us a lot as clients acknowledge the depth and breadth of our cross-category understanding. It’s a potent marketing tool, based on hard-core quantitative data, which more and more marketers should subscribe to.”

Navonil Chatterjee, Chief Strategy Officer, Rediffusion-Y&R India signed off by saying: “Normally, one would assume that any marketer would keep a track of his own brand and its competitors within the category. But, for an agency to monitor 1,400 plus brands across 100 odd categories, and manage the back-end of that mind-bogglingly complex data set… well, it’s almost unthinkable. The BAV is our magic box, which elevates our conversations to something far more data-substantiated than the nebulous world of usual agency dipsticks. And, the data right now is oven-fresh.”

Our typical marketing budget is usually 10 per cent of the topline spend

There are some forces impacting the way our business works. The IT/ITeS sector has changed tremendously. Platforms like Twitter have made everyone journalists. Smartphones have made everyone a photographer. The trend that we are seeing is one of hyperdigitalization, which is causing the lines between product and services to blur.

The OOH sector is among the fastest growing, globally. Brands and marketers have realized its potential and impact and begun to craft medium-specific adverts. Self-regulation is not only necessary but also essential to growth of the sector. The industry needs to exercise a certain level of this self-restraint to prove its commitment to maintaining the best standards in advertising.
