- The other places brands at the centre of value creation
- To re-affirm the view that brands are top level strategic drivers, marketers need to articulate the customer and shareholder value-creating capabilities of their brands

- Brand is a Value-System
- Consumer Value Perspective:A brand is a set of mental associations held by the consumer, which add to the perceived value of the product or service (Keller, 1998).
- Shareholder Value Perspective:A brand is an intangible asset representing a source of current and future earnings of the firm (Hill and Lederer, 2001)

- Marketers need to speak the language of the CEOs.
SHAREHOLDER VALUE = CORPORATE VALUE LONG TERM DEBT CORPORATE VALUE= FUTURE CASH FLOWS OF THE FIRM Lets see how brands create shareholder value 11. 1. Increasing Cash Flow
- Higher prices : Consumers willing to pay premium for strong brands Eg. Louis Vuitton
- Higher volume growth:Strong brands can be leveraged to create brand extensions Eg. Coke Zero
- Lower Costs:Unit marketing cost lower for market leading brands
- Higher asset utilization:Brands with high market share can generate economies of scale through larger volume
12. Relationship between Brand Strength and Cash Flow

- Residual value = Net present value of the business
- Brands sustain the long-term ability of the business to keep generating cash
- Coca Cola, Kit-Kat, Cadbury have been around for up to a century
- Research done by Madden et al. (2006) A $1000 investment in companies in the Worlds Most Valuable Brands (WMB) List generates a return of 4 times vs. only 3 times by the overall stock market
- Reflects investor confidence in companies with strong brands
14. 3. Reducing the risk associated with cash flow
- Strong brands are not easy to copy Eg. Apple iPod
- Brand loyalty promotes stability in cash flow
- Cost of winning new customers > cost of retaining existing ones
15. Concept of Brand Value
- Brand Value is the dollar value of a brand, calculated as Net Present Value (NPV), or todays value of the earnings the brand is expected to generate in the future.
