Manila, Philippines – Talkwalker, the leading consumer intelligence company, and Hootsuite, the global leader in social media management, have released their Brand Love 2022 report. Each year, Talkwalker uses its consumer intelligence capabilities to analyse over 1,500 brands, to see which ones are the most loved.
This year, the leading brands for Southeast Asia (SEA) include names like Sulwhasoo, UNIQLO, Jollibee, AIA, and DBS Bank, in addition to other international leading brands such as Asics, Jimmy Choo, Fjällräven, Apple, and more. By partnering with Hootsuite, the report now also includes tips on how brands can improve their brand love immediately.
The report uses a refined methodology to create the Talkwalker Brand Love Index. With over 10 years of client research and in-depth analysis of use cases, the index identified 3 critical scores for monitoring brand love – Passion, Trust, and Customer Satisfaction (CSAT). These scores were calculated by analysing over 2.6 billion conversations from social media, news, blogs, and reviews, to identify the brands consumers really care about.
“This is the third year running Talkwalker has developed the Brand Love report,” said Elena Melnikova, Talkwalker CMO.
Melnikova adds, “And each year it reveals a clear picture of what’s driving consumer passion at that time. Consumer priorities, values, and behaviours change constantly, and only those brands that are close to their consumers, foresee these changes and adapt. These are the brands that are sustaining and growing their brand love. Love your consumers, and your consumers will love you.”
In the past year, there was an increased focus on sustainability in the world, particularly on what impact brands are having on a social, economic, or environmental level. As many of the top 50 brands have prioritised sustainability efforts, we can see that this should not just be a consumer priority, but a critical brand strategy that can help create or kill brand love.
“As a marketer, if the past year and a half taught us anything, it’s that the traditional ways of advertising have changed drastically. Brands who put authenticity and courageous creativity at the core of their plans are the ones who generate the most brand love,” said Maggie Lower, CMO, Hootsuite.
“This year’s Brand Love report features shining examples that we can all learn from of how companies are innovating and connecting with their audience in different ways to build loyalty and affinity,” added Lower.
