The 2017 Edelman Earned Brand, a study conducted among 14,000 consumers in 14 countries, explores the rise of belief-driven buyers, who will buy a brand, switch from it, avoid it and— at the extreme — boycott it based on a brand’s stance on a controversial issue.

Explore the results: www.edelman.com/earned-brand

July 11, 2017 Correction: A previous version of this report incorrectly displayed the data for year-to-year changes on slide 43 in the Data Appendix.

  • A crucial look at the importance of brands looking at their position in the marketplace, culturally speaking. However, the final points about acting and supporting beliefs lacks a study or pointing towards the influencer industry. Brands have to navigate user generated content carefully, and the influencer market has unique benefits and problems for brands. Thanks nonetheless for Edelman's consistent work on influence and reputation.

  • This is why forward thinking, purpose driven businesses are increasingly defining success by the Triple Bottom Line (People, Planet, Profit) and the number of certified B Corporations is growing. Conscious consumers see right through green washing and disingenuous one-off projects aimed at polishing a tarnished, dented halo. They want verified proof that a company truly has social and environmental good woven into the fabric of its DNA, from its mission statement to the way it treats employees, customers, suppliers, and the environment. #BtheChange

Think about a societal or political issue that is both controversial and that you feel strongly about. If you had to describe this issue, which of these categories would it fall into? Question asked of half the sample. Q49. There are many controversial societal or political issues that a brand can choose to weigh in on. Some of the issues may be ones that you feel the brand has an obligation to take a stand on and should take leadership role in addressing. Some may be issues you feel that the brand really has no license to address and should avoid becoming involved in. For each of the types of issues described below, please indicate whether you believe that a brand has an obligation to take a stand, or it is wrong for it to take a stand on this type of issue. (Net Obligation Score = Obligated minus Avoid), question asked of half the sample. 14-country global total, by belief-driven buyers.

  48. 48. E D E L M A N E A R N E D B R A N D HOW WERE THE THREE TYPES OF BELIEF-DRIVEN BUYERS IDENTIFIED? 48 We developed a series of six nine-point questions to measure the extent to which beliefs affect people’s buying behaviors: We then classified respondents into three segments based on their responses to the above items: 1 Even if a company makes the product that I like most, I will not buy it if I disagree with the company’s stand on important social issues I have bought a brand for the first time for the sole reason that I appreciated its position on a controversial societal or political issue I have stopped buying one brand and started buying another because I liked the politics of one more than the other I have strong opinions about many societal and political issues. The brands I choose to buy and not buy are one important way I express those opinions If a brand offers the best price on a product, I will buy it even if I disagree with the company’s stand on controversial social or political issues [reversed scored] I have stopped buying a brand solely because it remained silent on a controversial societal or political issue that I believed it had an obligation to publicly address LEADERS JOINERS SPECTATORS Have strongly-held, passionate beliefs. The brands they buy are one important way they express those beliefs. Depending on the issue and the brand, they will change their buying behavior based on the brand’s stand. Rarely buy on belief or punish brands that take a stand. 1 2 3 4 5 6

HOW WAS THE EDELMAN BRAND RELATIONSHIP INDEX BUILT? 53 STRENGTH OF THE CONSUMER-BRAND RELATIONSHIP 2017 Edelman Brand Relationship Index An Edelman Brand Relationship Index score can vary from zero to 100. In working with the scale, we identified five unique relationship levels. The cut-points that define each level are displayed below. These relationship levels were empirically determined based on two criteria. The first was a correspondence between relationship level as determined by the Edelman Brand Relationship Index and respondents’ self-described level of attachment to a given brand. The second was how distinct the levels were when profiled against key marketplace behaviors of general interest to brands. The resulting relationship levels and cut-points represent an optimized result that captures both respondents’ explicitly stated level of relationship with a brand and their implicit level of relationship as defined by their willingness to buy that brand first as well as to advocate for and defend it. 0-6 INDIFFERENT 7-26 INTERESTED 27-43 INVOLVED 44-69 INVESTED 70-100 COMMITTED
