GB: takes flight in May’s Biggest Brand Movers

null witnessed gains in seven YouGov BrandIndex metrics, topping the list of biggest brand movers in the May 2023 edition of the monthly feature.

UK’s Biggest Brand Movers is a monthly report highlighting the brands that made statistically significant month-over-month upticks in the metrics tracked by YouGov BrandIndex.

Jet2 launched another iteration of its Bid on a Break campaign in April, which allows holidaymakers to bid for their next holiday, with the lowest unique bid winning the vacation for that amount. The travel brand experienced gains in WOM Exposure, Impression, Satisfaction, Recommend, Quality, Purchase Intent and Current Customer.

Brewdog also bagged upticks in seven metrics. Four of these came under the brand perception umbrella – Value, Reputation, Satisfaction and Recommend. The beer brand announced a refresh of its multi-pack with an emphasis on better identification of various craft beers, and also relaunched its gold can competition.

Clothing retailer Primark, which has recently made moves towards sustainability and unveiled its first circular collection in April, made gains in six metrics, including three media metrics – Ad Awareness, WOM Exposure and Buzz.

Sports brand New Balance also made improvements in six metrics. In March, the brand announced a campaign, encouraging consumers to “Run your Way”. Sky Go also makes the list with gains in six metrics.

Cadbury witnessed improvements in five metrics, possibly receiving a boost from its participation in the Coronation celebrations with the launch of limited edition bars that were announced in April.

Luxury watch maker Rolex features in the list with gains in five metrics. The brand recently launched reinvented versions of the Oyster Perpetual model.

Trainline, Lenovo and Smeg round off the list with improvements in five metrics apiece.
