Why is brand awareness important?

Brand awareness indicates how well-known your brand is. Measuring your brand awareness with KPIs and metrics can help your business better understand your brand’s visibility, market presence, and overall growth. 75% of marketers say they don’t know how many people in their target market are aware of their brand, and almost 70% say they don’t even know how to measure brand awareness.

What is a KPI?

A key performance indicator, also known as KPI, is a type of numerical measurement that evaluates the performance of an organization’s engagement activity.

KPIs can involve revenue growth, customer satisfaction scores, employee turnover rates, or website traffic. For example, KPIs in healthcare could include patient wait times, mortality rates, and patient satisfaction. You want to use KPIs depending on the goals and objectives of the organization and what aspects of performance are most critical to monitor and improve.

How to use KPIs

A great way to use KPIs for measuring brand awareness is by evaluating how many people search for your organization’s name and associated keywords. Utilizing SEO tools like Semrush and Moz can help you analyze how many times your brand is being searched on a monthly basis. 

You can also use KPIs to evaluate your website’s traffic. Google Analytics 4 (GA4) can help you gauge how many people view your webpage, where they come from, and how long they stay on your website. All of these analytics are done automatically within GA4’s system so that you can obtain metrics as a helpful way to assess the performance of your company’s brand awareness.
