Brands are measured against a Brand Love Index built on three critical scores for managing brand love – passion, trust and consumer satisfaction score (CSAT) – calculated by analysing over 2.6 billion conversations across social media, news, blogs and reviews.

Hootsuite chief marketing officer, Maggie Lower said, “As a marketer, if the past two years have taught us anything, it’s that the traditional ways of advertising have changed drastically. Brands who put authenticity and courageous creativity at the centre of their marketing strategies are the ones who generate the most brand love.

Talkwalker chief marketing officer, Elena Melnikova commented, “This is the third consecutive year that Talkwalker has developed the Brand Love report and each year we reveal a clear picture of what’s driving consumer passion. Consumer priorities, values and behaviours change constantly, and only those brands that are close to their consumers foresee these changes and adapt.”
