Meaningful Brands

Meaningful Brands

Our proprietary research study Meaningful Brands (that spans 350,000 people worldwide, 31 markets, 22 industries and 1,800 brands each year) discovered that:

77%

of brands could disappear tomorrow and no one would care

84%

of consumers think companies and brands should communicate honestly about their commitments and promises

58%

of content provided by brands is not meaningful to consumers

It's these key findings that have led to the creation of our Meaningful Brands strategic framework—a unique approach that works across creative and media to help us understand a brand’s value across functional, personal, and collective relevance. Used across strategy and planning teams in all our agencies around the world, Meaningful Brands informs our integrated process and provides a common approach to strategic thinking to ensure we deliver meaningful business growth for our clients.
