    Brand Relevance David A. Aaker

    Synopsis
    Branding guru David Aaker explains how to eliminate the competition and become the lead brand in your market. This ground-breaking book defines the concept of brand relevance using dozens of case studies—Prius, Whole Foods, Westin, iPad, and more—and explains how brand relevance drives market dynamics, which generates opportunities for your brand and threats for the competition. Aaker reveals how these companies have made other brands in their categories irrelevant. Key points: When managing a new category of product, treat it as if it were a brand. By failing to produce what customers want, or losing momentum and visibility, your brand becomes irrelevant. You can create barriers to competitors by supporting innovation at every level of the organization. Using dozens of case studies, this book shows how to create or dominate new categories or subcategories, making competitors irrelevant. Aakers explains how to manage the new category or subcategory as if it were a brand and how to create barriers to competitors. The book describes the threat of becoming irrelevant by failing to make what customers are buying or by losing energy. David Aaker, the author of four brand books, has been called the father of branding. This book offers insight for creating and/or owning a new business arena. Instead of being the best, the goal is to be the only brand around—making competitors irrelevant.

    Synopsis
    Why do so many chief marketing officers of multinationals last only two or three years on the job? Because product and country marketing teams – or “silos” – make their professional mandate impossible. Without synergy across silos, global CMOs cannot achieve their goals. In this eminently practical audiobook, branding guru David A. Aaker tells CMOs what they must do: • Find the right role and scope • Gain credibility and buy-in • Use teams to link silos • Develop a common planning process • Adapt the master brand to silo markets • Prioritize brands in the portfolio • Develop silo-spanning marketing programs For each item, Aaker breaks down the CMO’s ambitious organizational challenges into manageable tasks of facilitation, consultation, and partnering. With his guidance, CMOs will have a better chance of reducing the negative attitude toward central marketing, gaining necessary support and resources, implementing cross-silo strategy and programs, cultivating a marketing-oriented culture, improving the pool of marketing talent, and moving toward a leadership role. For some firms, reducing the silo problem is the key to winning; for others, it is no less than the key to survival.

    Synopsis
    Everyone wants to make more money. But many feel that to do so, they must sacrifice their lifestyle and work at a job they don’t particularly like. In fact, if you’re like most people, your life is likely filled with activities, obligations, and commitments that have nothing to do with your goals or your dreams, your life’s mission, or the things that you love. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Aaron breaks life down into six pathways, and then sets out a simple but highly effective system for you to set goals in all six categories every month. Using his MTO™ system, he teaches you how to set each goal at three levels - Minimum, Target, and Outrageous - so that you can always have some level of success (and often it is the Outrageous success of your dreams). As you follow his powerful system, you will find yourself beginning to achieve measurable successes, month by month. When you track your successes, you will see yourself begin to move ever closer to fully creating, and then living, the life you want - the life of your dreams. Even if you have no idea what your life mission is, one of Aaron’s processes will help you to actually identify it. You can then begin to make good decisions about who and what you want in your life, based on how they support or don’t support your life’s mission. You will see your life inexorably moving forward in the exact direction of your choice. Unfortunately, most people hope for more but settle for less. Raymond Aaron offers the tools to create a designed life, a strategically organized life, and a life that delivers to you what you want. It takes courage, but it is your right if you want it. This book will help you begin your new life and achieve the success you desire.

Now, sealed in human form and banished to the DFZ—a vertical metropolis built on the ruins of Old Detroit—Julius has one month to prove he can be a ruthless dragon or kiss his true shape goodbye forever. But in a city of modern mages and vengeful spirits where dragons are considered monsters to be exterminated, he's going to need some serious help to survive this test.

    Synopsis
    When Julius overthrew his mother and took control of his clan, he thought he was doing right by everyone. But sharing power isn't part of any proper dragon's vocabulary, and with one seat still open on the new ruling council, all of Heartstriker is ready to do whatever it takes to get their claws on it, including killing the Nice Dragon who got them into this mess in the first place. To keep his clan together and his skin intact, Julius is going to have to find a way to make his bloodthirsty siblings play fair. But there's more going on in Heartstriker Mountain than politics. Every family has its secrets, but the skeletons in Bethesda's closet are dragon sized, and with Algonquin's war looming over them all, breaking his clan wide open might just be the only hope Julius has of saving it.
