Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

After two and a half decades of researching and advocating the power of the corporate brand as a marketing tool, James R. Gregory tackles head-on the age-old question that has baffled CEOs and corporate communicators alike: What is the power of a corporate brand and can it be measured? Gregory begins by noting that years of acquisitions, mergers, and restructuring have made many executives realize the need to rebuild the reputations and identities of their corporate brands with critical audiences. The key to meeting that need, as this book makes clear, begins with the understanding that the value of corporate brand communications is real and can be measured. In leading the reader through the logic of his research, Gregory identifies:
  • How to use objective, quantitative methods to measure and leverage the value of a company's name
  • How to use corporate branding programs to maximize the bottom-line financial impact of a company's advertising and corporate communications
  • How to achieve a powerful corporate brand by developing integrated corporate communications programs
  • How companies of all sizes can implement corporate branding programs through spinoffs, advocacy marketing, and the new interactive media
  • The essential role of the CEO in the corporate branding process
Leveraging the Corporate Brand provides long-awaited insights--with practical applications--into measuring and valuing the impact of your corporate brand on your bottom line.

Jim's broad knowledge of the corporate branding world is second to none. He masterfully paints a portrait of the elusive world of corporate identity and gives the reader a glimpse of the thinking behind the valuation methodology which has made his work so cutting edge. This book is a MUST READ for anyone who is serious about the field of corporate image and brand identity, particularly as it relates to the marketing research arena.

I bought this book because it promised "the value of the corporate brand can be measured". Gregory was going to identify "how to use objective, quantitative methods to measure and leverage the value of a company's name". Indeed: chapter two is even titled "the corporate branding index: attaining the holy grail." I thought, hey, this is going to be really interesting. Oh, and did I mention he promised a "hard-nosed methodology"? Gregory's solution: the value of a corporate brand is determined the interplay of a.) "the level of advertising support of the brand" (O.k., nothing new here) b.) "financial measurement reflecting revenue, earnings, and stock performance" (not exactly a revelation either) c.) and now get this: "measure of reputation BASED ON A PROPRIETARY FORMULA USING OUR PROPRIETARY DATABASE" Can you believe this guy? The rest of this book is a badly written (why does he have to use so many adjectives?) collection of well-known marketing anecdotes. For some truly insightfull work, look to the publications of the Aakers and Kellers of this world.

Jim Gregory has captured the essence of one of corporate Amerioca's hottest topics. His broad overview of the corporate brand landscape will provide any forward looking manager insights on what they should be doing to protect their image and the value of their company name. Loaded with real-world examples, and laced with practical applications, it is very good reading for those who are planning to compete on the world marketplace in the new millenium
