Allen P. Adamson, Author, David Kirkpatrick, Foreword by . Palgrave Macmillan $24.95 (274p) ISBN 978-0-230-60604-3

Adamson (BrandSimple ) explores the new digital branding landscape, its plethora of choices and new terminology, citing corporations such as Nike, Proctor & Gamble and Unilever to demonstrate how the best marketers are using digital tools to build and manage their brands. Adamson surveys the gamut of new technologies and methods, presenting how social sites like Facebook and MySpace can be used as part of the branding mix, whether companies can get a better return on the development costs of television ads if they reformat them for YouTube, how to keep digital promotion integrated with traditional outreach and how to determine which technology to use to reach one audience versus another. In addition to providing a list of new terms all branding professionals should thoroughly understand, he covers such relevant topics as digitally watching consumers in action, organic content on company Web sites and spiders, and establishing a clear brand voice. Informative and engagingly written, this book will guide marketers and executives through the rapidly changing digital landscape and help them make informed decisions regarding the most effective branding opportunities available for their companies.
