These are some of the benefits you can realize by using Perceptual mapping/Market mapping
These maps visually show you how existing products/services and brands are positioned in the market, i.e. the minds of consumers, relative to product attributes, e.g. quality, product features, value, and the associated positioning of the competing products in the marketplace.
The perceptual/market maps can help you to decide where a product can/should be placed.
Perceptual mapping can also help define market segments, showing clusters of businesses differentiated by key aspects (such as higher price, extensive range of features, product customization).
It can also help identify gaps in a market, where customers perceive that existing products do not fit, and a new product or service could be introduced/positioned.
You can get insights as to the effectiveness of your or a competitor’s recent marketing campaign or strategy change by doing before and after mapping to identify any discernible changes.
Perceptual maps can also be used to get market feedback on how a new product, (either yours or a competitor’s), is being viewed.
Perceptual/market maps are created by asking customers about their perception of a brand or product in terms of its price, packaging, size, performance etc. The qualitative answers obtained are entered into a chart by using a Likert scale.
Perceptual maps measure the way products or brands are positioned in the minds of consumers and show these perceptions on a two-dimensional map whose X and Y axes are formed by associated product attributes or brand.
Our template provides the option to have a third dimension by using a standard Excel Bubble chart. The size of the bubble is used to provide the third dimension.
