LOS ANGELES, March 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Added Value and ZappiStore announce the launch of SNAPSHOT, a breakthrough solution designed to provide quick-fire inspiration and fast answers to big brand questions for marketers and their agencies. Snapshot features a proprietary set of tools with a track record of delivering a holistic, strategic, and future-focused view of a brand.
Snapshot includes three core Added Value insight tools:
- Cultural Traction™: A leading indicator of growth and advocacy, Cultural Traction™explores how well a brand is leveraging culture by measuring its VIBE. A quantitative composite metric, VIBE illustrates how Visionary, Inspiring, Bold and Exciting a brand is perceived, and sparks the conversation regarding its role in culture.
- Brand Equity: Uncovers the presence of a brand in the marketplace, and the strength of the emotional connection people have with it. Determines your strengths, liabilities and opportunities, and what your VIBE should be given its equity.
- CharacterLab™: You may know WHAT your purpose and benefits are, but if you don't know WHO your brand's character is, then every decision regarding HOW to do things becomes difficult. Inconsistent words, imagery, gestures, or actions have the potential to dilute, divert and confuse your brand's identity. CharacterLab™ enables marketers to test the strength and nature of their brand's character and guide its development.
Snapshot responds to the need for fast and affordable insights in today's marketing environment of reduced timeframes and budgets. Snapshot is available on the ZappiStore platform which allows marketers to answer questions in hours, not weeks, by automating the process. Snapshot is built to quickly answer your brand questions, with additional consulting modules available to augment the learning and activate against the findings. Sample is provided by global digital data collection leader, Kantar's Lightspeed GMI.
Says Maggie Taylor, CEO of Added Value North America, "Whether you're a marketer who needs a fresh perspective on your brand's health today and tomorrow, or a creative agency seeking inspiration for on-going projects or pitches, SNAPSHOT provides concrete answers to your most pressing questions. It's blazingly fast, surprisingly easy, and priced to play."
Ryan Barry, SVP ZappiStore NA, is convinced that Snapshot will quickly inspire the most iconic brands: "We are thrilled to welcome Added Value to ZappiStore with the SNAPSHOT product. Cultural relevance is more important now than ever, particularly when coupled with other core brand health metrics through Added Value's world class methodology. Providing agency and corporate clients with a way to achieve such impactful results in just a few hours will be really useful to empower on-going brand pulsing, pitches as well as to generally see where brands stand in their category and among the world's most innovative brands."
