5 Strategies for Measuring Brand Awareness



Totally False: “You can’t measure brand awareness advertising.”


Brand awareness is just like any advertisement: it can -- and should -- be measured.


If you don't see results soon after you start the advertising, then it’s not likely going to work long term. The opposite is also true. Quick results are a good indicator of long-term success.


Here are some basic strategies:


✅ DO: Look for changes in where customers are coming from. Hopefully, you’re using data science or surveys!


✅ DO: Track sales changes over a period of 1 to 3 sales cycles. This period can vary enormously between companies and products.


✅ DO: Estimate customer acquisition costs early; any positive benefits that come later are a bonus. Remember – it’s better to be conservative than optimistic.


✅ DO: Remember that humans typically only remember advertising for a short period of time (generally a few days). Sometimes it’s longer, but not often.


✅ DO: Make sure to have a large enough sample size in both advertising spend and customers to draw conclusions. If your advertising spend is $2M per month and you spend $2K, you’re unlikely to measure the difference (unless you’re *really* good at measuring).
