Abstract

The emotional perception of brands, explicit as well as implicit, is of interest to any brand manager. An implicit association test (IAT) could have the potential to detect unconscious attitudes and therefore evaluates intangible brand values. In a pilot study, we conducted an IAT online survey to test this implicit method to measure the emotional perception of established brand concepts. Analysis of emotional valence showed that the results compared to explicit brand evaluation with a simple question are roughly the same.
