Review

From the reviews:

"Just received my copy of B2B Brand Management - what a beautiful piece of work! Thank you for this advancement to our practice! (Ralph A. Oliva, Executive Director, Institute for the Study of Business Markets Professor of Marketing, Smeal College of Business, Penn State University)

"Proliferation of similar products, increasing complexity of customer needs (moving from stand-alone products to solutions), and high price pressures will force b2b marketers to focus on brand building. If you are a b2b marketer already thinking along those lines, then this book is the weightiest corroboration you could have asked for." (TMCnet, October 2006)

"When it comes to marketing, there is no name bigger than Phillip Kotler. … In this book, co-authored with … Professor Waldemar Pfoertsch, Kotler makes a case for brand management in business-to-business (b2b) marketing as well. … The core proposition in the book is that in the new globalized world ‘being known’ rather than ‘being one of many’ is the need of the hour. … How does branding help in overcoming … challenges? The authors offer a huge list-it helps with differentiation … ." (Business Today, October, 2006)

Format: Hardcover
For someone who is starting fresh on B2B this book can be a good base, however personally I found it average on the insight it has given me. There was not much in depth examples of pure B2B success stories a lot of it was just touching the surface. A lot of the examples as well are related to companies that have already an established name on the B2C side, so much easier to extend to the B2B. Saying that it is as i said a good base and collates in one place the essence and bulk of the B2B tools. IT certainly misses out on the emerging social media element and the CRM which should take a much bigger role in such a book.

By Rolf Dobelli TOP 500 REVIEWER on 1 Sept. 2009
Format: Hardcover
Philip Kotler, one of the fathers of modern marketing, and Waldemar Pfoertsch do not push the branding envelope in this book, but it is nevertheless a useful text on B2B branding - and in fact on branding in general. They illustrate their points with numerous, interesting and relevant real-world examples, as well as with a surfeit of diagrams and charts, and they go into great detail about the nuances of brand building, maintenance and architecture. Unfortunately, the book's real strengths make the noticeable typos especially jarring. getAbstract recommends this work to students and to early-career marketers who want to understand why and how businesses need to build better brands.
