To know the exact value of a brand there are several factors that has to be looked into. The following steps have to be taken when doing brand valuation. Consider market Segmentation brand, financial analysis of the brand, demand analysis of the brand, and competitive bench marking of the brand

Market Segmentation of the brand – brands performs well in different markets and when evaluating your brand, it is very important to segment the market by splitting the brands market into non-overlapping and homogeneous (harmonized, identical, standardized, consistent, uniform, all the same) market of consumers.

Market segmentation is done following some steps and criteria including product and services, brand distribution channels available, customers purchasing patterns of the brand, purchasing sophistication (complexity, cleverness, superiority, difficulty, style, classiness), market geography, existing and new customers, customer’s preference etc. after splitting the market segment, you value your brand each segment and the total segment brand valuation will add up to the value of the brand

      If I remember correctly one simple way of brand evaluation is to simply subtract the book value from the market value of company. But this approach has many flaws. Brand value should generally not fluctuate as much as the stock, at least in my opinion.
