Brand awareness


Marketing people use ‘spontaneous recall’ to test how effectively a brand has been advertised. It is measured by asking people to name, unprompted, a brand associated with a particular product.

Today was Father’s Day in the UK.

Four children. One father. Spontaneous recall: 25%… or perhaps 75% if asking “is it Father’s Day today?” counts as recall.

I received two cards, two gifts, one text and an excuse (“I remembered it was Father’s Day when I was in Sainsburys yesterday… I nearly bought you Jeremy Kyle’s book, but it was too heavy”).

It is the thought that counts.
