Brandjack: How Your Reputation Is at Risk from Brand Pirates and What to Do about It


Brandjack: How Your Reputation Is at Risk from Brand Pirates and What to Do about It Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A strong internet presence is a huge boost to brand awareness, but interactivity and instant communication can make brands vulnerable to misuse or attack. Brands can be wilfully or accidentally misrepresented, and they can be irrevocably associated with negatives ideas: they can be 'brandjacked'.

Containing 140 engaging case studies, from BP to Beyoncé, this is the first book to analyze brandjacking. Combining crisis communication and social media management, Brandjack! charts the growth of the trend, offering advice to those who find themselves at the mercy of brand pirates.
