Presence:This means the presence of the brand in the market and for the consumer. It is measured based on the view of the brand’s adverts, the interaction, the number of shares via email or on social media, the consumer’s support, and if it’s socially responsible.

 Leading Edge:This one is measured based on Edginess, ahead of its time, being trendsetter, originality, provided something the consumer never knew they needed, and if it shapes the consumer’s behavior.

Trustworthy:Trustworthy is measured on the consumer’s trust, the recommendation, the brand’s improvement, inspiring Egyptian pride, being used and bought, and many more factors.
