When you examine the 10 brands on this chart, you can see that RIM is the most-liked computer manufacturing brand on Facebook, with 9,449,868 likes. But when you zoom in on Dell with 997,909 likes, you will see that they have 12% fewer daily mentions than Hewlett-Packard (HP), even though HP has close to the same number of likes -- why is that?
Heardable.com reveals that Dell has strong brand equity but weaker brand advocacy than HP. At least, at this point in time.
The point of discussing these findings is to show how two or more data points, in context, can reveal something entirely new.
Dell is the most liked computer maker on Facebook. This is true.
Dell is the most liked computer maker on Facebook on the surface, but HP has developed a passionate fan base that is talking about and advocating the brand across social media, in huge numbers relative to their fan base, which is a powerful indictor that the brand is resonating with consumers more than Dell right now.
Is something going on in the marketplace that’s triggering this surge in chatter for HP?
Did HP launch a new product or advertising campaign?
Did they receive a recent a celebrity endorsement or launch a new social media marketing campaign?
If this growth trajectory continues unabated, how many more months will it take for HP to surpass Dell as the top computer manufacturing brand on Facebook?
Heardable knows the the answer.
Contextual brand intelligence = actionable insights.

The book, Rules of Thumb, by Tom Parker, is a fascinating read because it's a fine collection of heuristic sayings: a measuring device for common sense principles of life.
I thought nine rules were especially interesting due to their potential for influencing business decisions. They reminded me of how we make 'back-of-the-envelope calculations' which are better than a guess but less than an accurate than a proven fact.
Here are 9 business rules of thumb to ponder:
#9 Business Decisions - 80% of all bad decisions are snap decisions. Good managers make the best decisions after sleeping on it.
#8 Organizational Management - A corporation should limit its executive staff to one hundred people or less, even though it may have thousands of employees.
#7 Advertisements - A good ad should have no more than seven words and two things to look at.
#6 Time Management - A job with a new client with take 25% longer than the same job with an established client.
#5 Product Marketing - Any new product should have at least three easily recognizable advantages over the competition.
#4 Advertising - To attract women, show babies and women. To attract men, show men.
#3 Public Speaking - You should expect your actual speech to take one-third more time than it took you during practice.
#2 Press - Don't tell a reporter anything you don't want printed. Not that they can't be trusted, but what you tell reporters off the record can lead them to another source who may not be so discreet.
#1 Elevator Pitch - The idea for a new venture is likely to be strategically unsound if it can't be put into one coherent sentence.
