Case 2: Monday, November 5, 2012 Preference # _____(1-5)

“A Case for Brand Loyalty”,
Harvard Business School, Case No. 9-598-023

An interesting discussion on the human side of brand loyalty, revealing the fact that the definition of “brand loyalty” can vary. This case explores the sorts of relationships different sorts of people (and different segments) have with their brand of coffee. It explores the often deeply personal side of Customer-Based Brand Equity. Interesting insights, and a chance to look at a qualitative, “ethnographic” study.

Note: This case is somewhat different in that it doesn’t invite one recommendation to the management team, but reflects on the nature of brand loyalty itself. All informants in the study you’ll be reading were recruited using the same criteria: They all stated that they were “brand loyal”.

Reflect on the following questions:

1) Is Tom brand loyal? Is Frank? Why or why not?
2) Are Charles and Anne loyal to their brands?
3) How is Wendy’s loyalty different from Sarah’s, or Pamela’s, if at all?
4) If you were a brand manager in the coffee category, which of the seven informants would you want as a customer? Why this person?
5) After reviewing this case and considering these situations, how would you define brand loyalty?
6) What insights into the concept of brand loyalty do you obtain from studying these informant’s reactions, as well as the other brands in each informant’s usage portfolios?
