Strategic Brand Management

Front Cover
Oxford University Press, 2007 - Business & Economics - 265 pages
Strategic Brand Management approaches the subject of brand management from a unique socio-cultural perspective, providing students with an understanding of the dynamics of the subject and enabling them to engage with the issues that lie within. While adopting this innovative framework, thebook also integrates more traditional notions of the brand in terms of equity and positioning within that framework.Building on a solid theoretical underpinning, this textbook provides a rigorous grounding in the subject of brand management. The theory is applied to examples throughout, to enable students to understand the practical application. The framework for the book separates a brand's concept intofunctional and emotional parts, looking at purchases that fulfil a functional need and how these develop into emotional decision-making processes.
