Profit Brand offers a comprehensive metrics-based approach to branding that allows companies to link branding activities directly with bottom-line results, and align the organization - including marketing - with common benchmarks that ensure that customers repeat purchase. It also illustrates how organizations can do business on customer terms - the one competitive differentiator that cannot be duplicated in today's consumer economy.

This is essential reading for branding and marketing professionals, CEOs, finance directors, and students of business and marketing.
