eBrandValue operates in a real-time, relative world. eBrandValue metrics are based on the premise that brand messages are competing for limited customer attention. The engagement is the ultimate feedback that certain messages are registered and creating attention ripples. The "salience" of such engagements determine whether and how brand messages are effective in creating Awareness, Interest, Desire and Action (AIDA). This is simplified in eBrandValue's Awareness-Desire-Satisfaction funnel approach and ties directly with a brand's value.
