Speaking as someone whose business is centered on building a brand, I’d make it available throughout my organization.”

George S. Day,
Professor of Marketing, Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania

“The role of brands is changing rapidly and dramatically with the rise of digital marketing and addressability, the growing power of emerging markets, and the key role of value chains in providing ecosystems of products and services. A changing role does not mean a decreasing role, but it does provide an urgent call for creative adaptation. This book brings together some of the best minds in marketing to understand the issues involved in this turbulent environment and provide ideas as to how they might be addressed. As such, I consider it to be essential reading for both academics and managers.”

John Roberts,
Professor of Marketing, Joint Appointment at London Business School & Australian National University

“A nice, tight compilation of guru-inspired commentaries covering many of the foundations, facets, and fallacies of branding in a hyper-connected digital world. The Future of Branding provides a multi-disciplinary view of how to build brand value using customercentric, gratification strategies. Drawing on expert insight, this book provides a banquet of views with a more palatable and enjoyable content snacking experience.”

Donovan Neale-May,

“Today’s consumers are confounded by an endless stream of product information in our always-connected, global economy resulting in choice fatigue and purchase indecision. The Future of Branding is the definitive roadmap for the students and managers of enduring brands who are attempting to navigate this competitive landscape and consumer reality. It provides turn by turn guidance to help develop strategy, measure branding effectiveness, narrow focus on profitable customers and assess the true value of a successful brand. Don’t attempt to drive your brand without it.”

Jim Anhut,
SVP Design – IHG and Serial Hospitality Brand Builder

“This book comes at a time when brand owners are being challenged by technologies that are changing consumer behaviors and new business models that are disrupting traditional markets. One thing remains the same, consumers still need products to buy and ideas to buy into, but how we build branded relationships with consumers has changed forever. This book is an essential guide for marketers today.

Brand marketing is changing and Lluis Martinez-Ribes’ chapter gets straight to the point. Retailers are no longer destinations that sell branded products, they are brands in their own right. That requires new thinking and new approaches, this book signposts the way.”

Global Chief Retail Officer, Cheil Worldwide Inc.
