Punjab’s Most Trusted Brands Iterate its’ National “Bread Basket” Status

Sonalika, Verka, Swaraj Mazda: Punjab’s home grown, agricultural related brands make it to Brand Trust Report 2015

Punjab. 19th March 2015. India’s most rigorous brand evaluation, The Brand Trust Report, India Study, the fifth in its series, comparing the trust held in brands, has been released for 2015. Punjab has always been a key hub for agro-based industries and it comes as no surprise that the Most Trusted Brands in the State are from the food and beverage and agriculture sectors. In this report by TRA (formerly Trust Research Advisory), brands Verka (All India Rank 365th), and LalQuilla Rice (All India Rank 692nd) are featured in the Food and Beverage Category. Tractor manufacturer Sonalika (All India Rank 407th) is the only brand in the category of tractors. In addition, Chandigarh based Swaraj Mazda (All India Rank 450th) makes a new entrance under commercial vehicle manufacturer category, only 8 ranks away from the category leader, Ashok Leyland. Hero Cycles too has made it to the top 1000 and ranks 793rd among the 1000 Most Trusted Brands listed in the report.

Given the state’s strong association with agriculture, the Punjab government has a daunting task at hand as it is set to emerge as the next pharmaceutical and IT hub of the country. While this transition has potential to generate more skilled employment through the “Invest Punjab” initiative, it is essential to take into account the current perception for the development of the upcoming venture’s success in the state.

Commenting on this N. Chandramouli, CEO, TRA, publishers of The Brand Trust Report said, “Punjab has a long legacy as an agricultural state and the brands that emerge in terms of trust parameters are from Food & Beverage and Agriculture. Brands such as Verka have made quite an impact in the category coming in 3rd in the category of Dairy Products among 11 other brands. The only outlier in this list is Hero Cycles which of course is one of the oldest manufacturers of cycles and has been around since the 1950s.”

These revelations were a result of The Brand Trust Report, India Study – 2015, the fifth in its series, published by TRA (formerly known as Trust Research Advisory), a leading research organization dedicated to understanding and simplifying concepts related to Trust. This year’s study involved 13000 hours of fieldwork covering 2373 consumer-influencers across 16 cities in India and generated 5 million datapoints and 19,000 unique brands from which the top 1000 brands have been listed in this year’s report. The 190 page, hardbound report is available for Rs. 14,000/-.

e-Brands Face Trust Shuffle: Brand Trust Report Google leads for fifth year; Facebook falls; Twitter misses the bus

Mumbai. 12th March, 2015: For the fifth consecutive year, Google, the American multinational specializing in internet-related services and products has been declared the Most Trusted Internet Brand by The Brand Trust Report, India Study, 2015.Amazon, the online shopping portal, saw a new appearance in the 2015 trust rankings coming in at 146th rank overall and 2nd rank in the Internet category. Snapdeal grabbed the third position in the Internet category jumping 917 ranks to 174thrank across India. The online shopping portals increasing popularity indicate a rising usage of online shopping as a definitive medium of shopping, given its convenience and cost advantages. Flipkart rose nearly 900 ranks to overall rank 212nd. This rising popularity however does not manifest in other internet related categories – a startling example being the social networking website Facebook, which sees a decline of 12 ranks in 2015.

These revelations were a result of The Brand Trust Report, India Study – 2015, the fifth in its series, published by TRA (formerly known as Trust Research Advisory), a leading research organization dedicated to brand analytics. This year’s study involved 13000 hours of fieldwork covering 2373 consumer-influencers across 16 cities in India and generated 5 million datapoints and 19,000 unique brands from which the top 1000 brands have been listed in this year’s report. The 190 page, hardbound report is available for Rs. 14000/-.

Commenting on this sudden flurry of activity in the internet category, N. Chandramouli, CEO, TRA stated, “The medium of internet is completely disruptive and it not surprising that the e-brands see upheavals in trust also. Something new is happening all the time and engaging consumers has never been so challenging as well as exciting before this. Internet brands today need to be very careful given that there are online conversations happening beyond the knowledge and control of the brand. There is always something new happening. This year there are some new entrants to the trust list in the internet category such as RedBus.in in Online bus booking, Zivame in Online lingerie store and Hopscotch.in in Online baby products.”

Notable mention is the 592 rank fall that is seen by Yahoo, a brand once the closest competition to Google. Wechat and Line, social networking apps too have not made an impact while the only surviving brand in the category WhatsApp falls by 200 ranks. Social media platform Twitter is a no-show in this year’s listings.

It is interesting to note that of the 31 brands listed in Internet category in 2014 only 13 brands have been able to make it to the top 1000. Also an additional 7 new entrants in the category draw up the total number to 20 internet brands, moving away from the trend of the growth of Internet related brands each year.

Innovative ways to Showcase Power of Licensing

While most measure a brand in terms of market share, brand value, growth – the more important invisible and intangible components of brand behaviour are often lost to measurement. TRA (formerly Trust Research Advisory) with the help of the Brand Trust Report aim to look at these elements holistically and creates a singular metric in each case, that can measure the intangible and tangible attributes or traits of a brand in one unit. To feature in the report is a matter of great pride for any brand and to display this achievement TRA licenses its symbols so that the brands can carry the mark of their achievement with great pride. Licensing is an integral business development tool that provides brand with a competitive advantage. It helps the brand leverage its self in its marketing communication with a stamp of surety and confidence.

Several leading brands have used the reports and its extensions to enhance their brand’s scope and communication processes. Few have been listed here:

The trust of an Indian consumer in a Korean product is a representative of the quality and prolonged positive brand experience.

LG decides to thank their consumers for the trust they have shown in the brand over the years

And some made their trusted image, the face of facebook among thousands of loyal consumers

Dell’s Facebook post have more than 11000 likes

In addition to this Dell has made an active campaign to ensure that this great news reaches each and every one of their stakeholders by proudly displaying notices with in thier offices as well as retail outlets.

In addition to that to boost their communication in brochures and print ads brands Kent, Big FM, IDBI, Dainik Bhaskar among several others use the licensing symbol in their communication

When people’s car got the people’s trust, they went on to showcase this achievement across several online social platforms. Cheers to Tata Nano!

tata nano post

Tata Nano Most Trusted 3 year in a row

While brands chose to celebrate their awesomeness on social media, NDTV – the Most Trusted Media brand in India went on to display their trusted image through people who are representatives of the brand.ndtv sonia tweet

In the quest of trust, certain brands are dependent on the trusted relationships that consumers share among themselves. For such brands, trust is imperative since they thrive in the market only if a desired result of a transaction is achieved with complete satisfaction and not just through high quality communication.

Bharat Matrimony tweet

Top brands in India have always enjoyed people’s trust. Their legacy in the Indian market helps the brand inherit the trust of the parent brand. In case of Tata Nano, the parent went on to uplift their brand image through the people’s trust that was held by the child. This was a reverse case of inherited trust. What a moment of Joy!!!tata group tweet

The expression of Trust is critical if you know that brand resides in the subconscious of your customer. As certain commodities in the market are dependent on trusted transactions, something like a credit card needs to tell its holders that their money is safe and in trusted hands.

American Express post

Ranked as Most Trusted Credit card in India

It doesn’t get better when the news is that the 2nd Most Trusted Brand in the industry is not a direct competitor but a worldwide giant and you hear it resonate with your Indian loyalists.

Amul

So some competition is always healthy and a review from a third party industry critic amounts to loads of trust coming your way. This is your opportunity to resemble or rather position yourself as a brand as good as an internal giant who will someday be your direct competition.
