Today Heardable, Inc. (http://heardable.com) released all new research that benchmarks the online performance of 30 leading brands in the electronics industry. The 159 page report provides online performance diagnostics on everything from mobile readiness to social network participation to adeptness at SEO.
The study was compiled by Heardable, Inc., the world's first and only real-time contextual brand analytics platform. The research report documents dozens of Internet marketing best practices and provides ranking analysis on how each organization is performing against its competitors.
According to the research, element14's brand health score of 728 out of 1,000 beat its nearest competitors, Newark and Texas Instruments by 24 points or 3% (Newark and Texas Instruments tied for second place). element14 outscored third place Mouser by 87 points or 12%.
Heardable's brand health scores are like credit scores for brands. Scores range from 0 to 1,000. Basically, the higher your score, the better you're doing. Each brand health score is comprised of six subscore categories, each focusing on a unique element of a brand's online effectiveness: Portable, Searchable, Sociable, Measurable, Actionable, and Shareable.
Five things leading electronics industry brands are doing right:
1. Optimizing their websites for mobile smartphone browsing.
2. Creating a strong social media presence, participation, followers & advocates.
3. Optimizing their websites for search engines.
4. Developing usable websites (easy to engage, share, interact, contact and transact).
5. Performing ongoing monitoring and optimization using web analytics software and testing tools.
"Today's leading organizations use data and analytics to make informed decisions — actions which can lead to measurable improvements in sales and profits," said Jeff Curie, vice president of marketing for SupplyFrame, a leading provider of online marketing solutions for the electronics industry that works with many of the organizations featured in this report. "Benchmarks like Heardable's provide a quantifiable way to understand the results from different marketing tactics for individual companies over time and as well as between different companies in the industry."
"The objective of this report was to help leaders in the electronics industry understand the levers through which online brand value is created in order to identify opportunities to grow the value of their brand going forward," said Gunther Sonnenfeld, co-founder of Heardable, Inc. "For example, of the organizations researched for this report, Altera is the most-liked electronics industry brand on Facebook. However, it has less daily mentions than some of its direct competitors. Why is that? The Heardable platform reveals that Altera has strong brand equity but perhaps weak brand advocacy, which presents a strategic opportunity for the brand."
