The Fall Of Advertising And The Rise Of Pr

by Al Ries, Laura Ries

HARPERCOLLINS PUBLISHERS | August 8, 2002 | Hardcover

The Fall Of Advertising And The Rise Of Pr is rated 3 out of 5 by 1.

Bestselling authors and world-renowned marketing strategists Al and Laura Ries usher in the new era of public relations.

Today's major brands are born with publicity, not advertising. A closer look at the history of the most successful modern brands shows this to be true. In fact, an astonishing number of brands, including Palm, Starbucks, the Body Shop, Wal-Mart, Red Bull and Zara have been built with virtually no advertising.

Using in-depth case histories of successful PR campaigns coupled with those of unsuccessful advertising campaigns, The Fall of Advertising provides valuable ideas for marketers -- all the while demonstrating why

  • advertising lacks credibility, the crucial ingredient in brand building, and how only PR can supply that credibility;
  • the big bang approach advocated by advertising people should be abandoned in favor of a slow build-up by PR;
  • advertising should only be used to maintain brands once they have been established through publicity.
  • Bold and accessible, The Fall of Advertising is bound to turn the world of marketing upside down.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Regurgitation Regrettably, the Rieses really miss an opportunity to add significant educational value added to this most recent work of theirs. I would have expected to see some more insights than in their previous work entitled: 'The 22 Immutable Laws of Branding,' but, it seems like they missed the boat here. The more I thought about it, the more I realized how plenty of the examples were oversimplified. Then, in my discussions with colleagues, we determined that the Rieses also selected the best-case scenarios for many of the examples they'd used for the book. Now, I wouldn't say I felt swindled, since I've typically purchased their books before and liked them - learned plenty too! But, if you've read the above '22 Laws,' my feeling is that you've covered all the material. I wanted something new. I guess I'll take more time previewing in the future. Avoid the regurgitation of content here, and save yourself the price tag. -- AM

Editorial Reviews

“Al and Laura Ries offer powerful arguments as to why companies need to use more PR in the launch stage of products and save their advertising dollars to do maintenance work in the later stages.Whether or not you agree, you will find their arguments and illustrations stimulating and deserving of serious discussion in your company.” (Philip Kotler, Professor of International Marketing, J.L. Kellogg Graduate School of Management, Northwestern University)
