Branding and Positioning Research

How are you perceived today? Is this the perception you need to achieve your goals? We know how to find out. Pivot helps companies address branding initiatives by measuring brand awareness, health and equity, testing new brand concepts, and helping to reposition or extend existing brands.

Customers develop an emotional attachment to good brands, resulting in greater loyalty.   They engage with the brand and become advocates, actively recommending it in conversations with friends, family and colleagues.  With the evolution of social media, these conversations are widespread and beyond your control.  Having a strong brand is more important than ever.

Pivot helps companies make branding decisions with complete and total confidence.  Our experience in brand marketing strategy, insightful analysis and meaningful results make the difference for your brand’s success.

Through our brand research studies, Pivot will identify how your brand is perceived today and how it should be perceived in the future to be successful.  Pivot offers recommendations on how to get you there, coupled with awareness tracking studies that monitor and assess how your campaigns are working.
