Marketing Research Community

Topic: Emotional Connections and Brand Disruption
Facilitator: Kevin Mahler, Research Director, Schmidt Market Research

This presentation takes the audience on a journey of discovery, following Schmidt’s quest to better understand how non-traditional brand relationship metrics (emotional connections) relate to traditional brand measures, business outcomes, and consumer responses to brand disruptions. Specifically, this is the story of how Schmidt sought to develop a way to measure emotional connections that is predictive of consumer perceptions and behavior.
