How can a brand become one of those peerless 'Ueber-Brands' we all admire and are willing to pay a premium for? - Is there a proven process? - Where should we start?
Brand Elevation explains the main drivers behind brands becoming peerless and priceless and how to harness these principles to develop a winning brand strategy. Written for marketers and brand managers of all levels of experience, and for both those working in start-ups and established players, it proposes a six-step, easy-to-follow program to elevate your brand.

Featuring case studies and expert accounts from organizations including Airbnb, Acqua di Parma, Burt's Bees, Lakrids, Starbucks, TerraCycle, and YouTube, Wolfgang Schaefer and JP Kuehlwein skilfully explain how any brand - regardless of sector and industry - can become a modern prestige brand.

The book contents provide inspiring and practical insights into how to build a powerful strategy not only in Luxury and Lifestyle categories but also in traditional BtoB, helping marketers guide the transition from product-driven to value-driven models.
Brand Elevation is for me a useful tool I can immediately and enthusiastically activate.
I found the case stories enlightening and the perspectives interesting - a piece of evolution of our society.
However, who needs “plug-and-play” will also find what needed.
