Independent creative idea company Barkley has released its third annual State of the Whole Brand report and research study, “How to Build a Whole Brand. Right Now.”
The results: Whole brands out-profit, outperform and out-impact fragmented brands. In three years of studying total brand performance, Barkley found the Whole Brand Index can predict at near 70 percent accuracy what it takes for a brand to be successful in the market. The report also found whole brands are preferred two-and-a-half times more often than category competitors, are five times more likely to be seen as a brand on the rise, double the Standard & Poor’s 500 index in market performance and command a premium price among consumers.
