Programs, products and services
At Collage Group, we help brands achieve cultural fluency, the organizational ability to use culture to connect effectively and efficiently across consumer segments. Through our membership programs – multicultural, generations, LGBTQ+ and gender and parents and kids – custom research and advanced data and tools –CultureRate:Brand, CultureRate:Ad, Instant Insights and Market Profiler – our partners achieve high-impact results.
Our robust analytical framework starts with a deep understanding of cultural variations across all consumer segments, measuring cultural attributes, traits, passion points and more. We explore how these attitudes and behaviors impact various industries, such as consumer packaged goods (CPG), automotive, financial services, health care, media and more. We then identify linkages to brands and ads through our proprietary metrics, CultureRate:Brand and Ad. With our world-class cultural intelligence platform, you are the first to know, visualize critical insights, personalize your learning experience and much more.

CultureRate:Brand and Ad
Growth requires cultural fluency, the ability to use culture to efficiently and effectively connect across consumer segments. Are your brands and ads positioned to authentically engage with diverse America?
As the largest cultural resonance database, CultureRate reveals how your brand and ads rank vs. your competitors. CultureRate surveys are measuring brands and ads continuously with a focus on the new wave of Americans (18-40), the generation setting the pace for brand growth. Growing annually by more than 200,000 responses or 30 million unique data points, the CultureRate database is the largest of its kind. CultureRate relies on 10+ years of research and expertise in the survey design methods needed to understand diverse America and was built in partnership with more than 200 Collage Group brands across 10 major sectors.
CultureRate data analyses convincingly reveal that culturally fluent brand and ad positioning can and will resonate across broader audiences if done in an authentic, relatable way. A culturally fluent brand can leverage powerful halo effects that can reach the total market without compromising segment-specific nuance. Use CultureRate to take control of your brand favorability and ad positioning and build cultural resonance across all segments.
