  • Brand rate/market transaction price – this is where your brand value comes in, it’s the cost or value of your brand when it is sold or your brand selling price at the present.
The income approach to brand valuation:

This is where you see or assume the future world of your brand which counts in brand valuation.

  • Future net earnings – it’s the potential that how much your brand earns in the future. It relates and decides based on your brand equity.
  • You can include the method equal to the value income, cash flow, and cost savings.
  • Reputation/recognition of brand – and again your brand equity results.
