5. Defining Associations Points-of-difference (PODs) Attributes or benefits consumers strongly associate with a brand, positively evaluate, and believe they could not find to the same extent with a competitive brand Points-of-parity (POPs) Associations that are not necessarily unique to the brand but may be shared with other brands

6. Points-of-Parity Points-of-parity (POPs) are associations that are not necessarily unique to the brand but may in fact be shared with other brands. These 2 types of associations 1) Category points-of-parity Consumers view as essential to be a legitimate and credible offering within a certain product or service category. They represent necessary conditions but not necessarily sufficient for brand choice. Competitive points-of-parity Designed to negate competitors? points-of-difference.

7. Points-of-Parity Versus Points-of-Difference To achieve a point-of-parity on a particular attribute or benefit, a sufficient number of consumers must believe that the brand is ?good enough? on that dimension There is a ?zone? or ?range of tolerance or acceptance? with points-of-parity The brand does not literally have to be seen as equal to competitors, but consumers must feel that the brand does well enough on that particular attribute or benefit With points-of-differences, the brand must demonstrate clear superiority Often the key to positioning is not so much as achieving a point-of-difference as in achieving points-of-parity

8. Consumer Desirability Criteria for PODs Relevance Distinctiveness Believability

9. Establishing Category Membership Often marketers must inform consumers of a brand?s category membership. With the introduction of new products, especially when the category membership is not apparent. Brands are sometimes affiliated with categories in which they do not hold membership. The preferred approach to positioning is to inform consumers of a brand?s membership before stating its point-of-difference. There are three ways to convey a brand?s category membership: Announcing category benefits. Comparing to exemplars Relying on the product descriptor .

13. Criterias for POD Decide at which level (s) to anchor the brand?s points-of-differences At the lowest level are the brand attributes. At the next level are the brand?s benefits. At the top level are the brand?s values. Research has shown that brands can sometimes be successfully differentiated on seemingly irrelevant attributes if consumers infer the proper benefit.
