Ford tops the U.S. buzz rankings


BOURBONNAIS, IL – YouGov Brand Index’s most “buzziest” brands mid-year report has been released and Ford tops the list. Changes in customer perception as well as company profits have helped allow Ford Motor Company to move from the 6th spot in 2012 to the number one spot for mid-year 2013. Ford tops the U.S. buzz rankings ahead of other major brands such as Amazon, Subway, History Channel just to name a few.

Interviews are conducted weekly  with 20,000 participants. They are asked a range of questions such as whether they have heard anything negative or positive about a brand. Participants are also asked if they have heard about the brand by word of mouth or through the media. They are asked to rank what they heard about each brand on a scale ranging from -100 (extremely negative) to +100 (extremely positive).  A score of zero is neutral. Ford’s average score among YouGov survey respondents was 31. The U.S based survey is released bi-annually.

Ford is the only brand from the auto industry to make it to the top ten. According to YouGov, Ford’s US market share increased from 15.2% in 2012 to 15.9% in 2013, thanks largely to the success in sales of the Focus model as well as the company not accepting the government bailout.

Information on the most improved brands is also provided in the U.S based survey. Included in this top ten list is Goldman Sachs, Blackberry and Bing. Currently, Ford tops the U.S. buzz rankings and is working very hard to stay off of this list.
