Brand Resonance Pyramid – Meaning, Definitions and Stages

 

Definition 

The Brand Resonance refers to the relationship that a consumer has with the product and how well he can relate with it.

The resonance is the intensity of customer’s psychological connection with the brand and the randomness to recall the brand in different consumption situations.

Meaning

Brand resonance is characterized by strong connections between the consumer and the brand. Brands with strong resonance benefit from increased customer loyalty and decreased vulnerability to competitive marketing actions. The challenge for the brand is to ensure that the customer has the right experiences to create the right brand knowledge.

Brand Resonance Pyramid/Stages of Brand Development

Building this resonance involves a series of steps, as seen in Figure given below:

Brand Resonance Pyramid

Building this resonance involves a series of steps:

The first level of the pyramid deals with establishing the identity of the brand. Keller suggests a single building block for this phase and terms it brand salience. Salience refers to how easily or often a consumer thinks of the brand, especially at the right place and right time. In building a highly salient brand, he argues that it is important that awareness campaigns not only build depth (ensuring that a brand will be remembered and the ease with which it is) but also breadth (the range of situations in which the brand comes to mind as something that should be purchased or used).

The second layer of the pyramid deals with giving meaning to the brand and here Keller presents two building blocks: brand performance and brand imagery. Brand performance is the way the product or service attempts to meet the consumer’s functional needs. Brand performance also has a major influence on how consumers experience a brand as well as what the brand owner and others say about the brand.

Delivering a product or service that meets and, hopefully, exceeds consumer needs and wants is a prerequisite for successful brand building. In communicating brand performance, Keller identifies five areas that need to be communicated: primary ingredients and supplementary features; product reliability, durability and serviceability; service effectiveness, efficiency and empathy; style and design; and price

Brand imagery deals with the way in which the brand attempts to meet customers’ psychological and social needs. Brand imagery is the intangible aspects of a brand that consumers pick up because it fits their demographic profile (such as age or income) or has psychological appeal in that it matches their outlook on life (conservative, traditional, liberal, creative,etc). Brand imagery is also formed by associations of usage (at work or home) or via personality traits (honest, lively, competent, rugged, etc).

It is in this building block that advertising plays a major role in shaping the image of the brand, although word-of-mouth recommendations and a consumer’s own experience are equally important. However brand imagery is built, it is important that brand managers and strategists craft strong, favourable and unique associations for a brand.
