From the Jacket

For more than a decade, the leading corporate brand strategy and communications firm CoreBrand has been at the forefront of research into the effectiveness of branding communications--most importantly, the impact of branding on a company''s bottom line. The result is the revolutionary Corporate Branding IndexAndreg;--a one-of-a-kind proprietary database that analyzes branding data from more than 1,000 companies, tracking their reputation, communications, and financial performance. The Corporate Branding Index is the most influential and exhaustive resource on what works, what doesn''t, and why in corporate branding.. .

Now, in "The Best of Branding," branding pioneer and founder and CEO of CoreBrand James Gregory shares his company''s findings for the first time. He presents eye-opening case studies that unveil results from the Corporate Branding Index, along with original, in-depth interviews with the executives responsible for some of today''s most dominant brands--from AFLAC and Harley-Davidson to Johnson And Johnson, General Electric, Southwest Airlines, and more.. .

The detailed case studies support Gregory''s assertion that a brand is a business asset that can and should be managed over time, in the same manner as any other business asset. He presents a set of principles that apply to the branding issues faced by every corporation, large or small, as well as a number of unique tools that demonstrate how corporate brands compare to their peers in terms of the strength of their brand--a concept called CoreBrand PowerTM.. .

Profiling such leading companies as American Express, Maytag, Philip Morris/Altria, and Campbell Soup Company, each case study features a "CoreBrandPower"analysis, industry analysis, and an inside look at each company''s strategy and tactics. In addition, Gregory shares the results of his conversations with top management and communications executives from each company, who reveal their thoughts about building a durable brand. The results show how well--or how poorly--the world''s biggest brands have done business relative to their competitors, offering valuable lessons for anyone responsible for managing a brand.. .

Filled with remarkable insight on how communications affect a brand, "The Best of Branding" shows how immensely powerful the corporate brand can be--and how to fully capitalize on its value.. .

The critical steps to a better branding process . .

The definitive guide to branding best practices, "The Best of Branding" is the first and only book to reveal the findings of the Corporate Branding IndexAndreg;, a proprietary database created by CoreBrand--the only branding firm that ties the corporate brand to bottom-line performance--that examines over 1,000 companies across 34 40 industries and tracks each company''s reputation, communication and financial performance. Founder and CEO of CoreBrand James Gregory shares the results via case studies that profile such leading companies as American Express, Johnson And Johnson, General Electric, and Southwest Airlines.. .

Define the essence of a brand . Understand the value that a brand delivers . Get the most impact from corporate brand communications .Differentiate between brand strategy and advertising .
