Automated Mental Advantage Analysis

Based on the work of Professor Jenni Romaniuk (of the Ehrenberg-Bass Institute for Marketing Science), Mental Advantage Analysis evaluates how strongly a brand is associated with specific attributes compared to its competitors in the market. The resulting Advantages and Disadvantages make it easy for brands to prioritize their marketing strategies.

quantilope's Mental Advantage analysis is fully automated, allowing users to easily incorporate this method into their brand tracking studies to generate valuable metrics for brand positioning and communication strategies. 


Benefits of leveraging Mental Advantage analysis

Consistently reinforcing your brand's unique strengths and addressing any weaknesses builds a stronger and more differentiated brand image.

How to use Mental Advantage analysis

Mental Advantage analysis highlights how a brand's actual association with an attribute or CEP deviates from the expected association - given the brand’s usage / size and general prototypicality of an attribute or CEP.
