You can make use of perceptual maps, in order to see a brand’s perceived position compared to others. Perceptual or position mapping, is used as a powerful visualization technique for evaluation and understanding purposes.

Perceptual Map Template Features
The template consists of three main parts: Data Input, Options, Map itself.
Start with inputting your desired brands, size parameter and the key attributes in the data table of your template. In total, you may position 20 different brands (or any item) and include up to 12 separate attributes! The first seven of each will be already visible in your template, to activate additional ones click on the ‘+’ signs to have additional rows and columns.
Another feature included in the template is the ‘Size Parameter’. This column is created to represent the size of each circle in the perceptual map diagram. Although ‘market share’ is the most popular parameter in this case, definition is up to you. The user has the full flexibility here when it comes to what measure to include as the size parameter.
In this part, you may input the desired attributes to be used in the x and y-axis of your perceptual map. In addition to this, here you have the option to define the low-end and high-end definitions of each unique attribute!
After your data input and options settings, your Perceptual Map will be ready and you may see it automatically updates itself based on your new data input or settings. Simple, flexible and useful!
