In the digital world of the participatory web millions of common people
have started publishing own brand related content. Such amateur pieces
ignore official marketing campaigns and are generated by brand fans and
opponents alike. Given the increasing speed and reach of the internet
those grassroots messages may have sweeping effects on the brand image.
The book at hand represents a first comprehensive study fully dedicated to
the emerging phenomenon of brand related user generated content. It
explores its patterns and shows how brand managers may benefit from it via
user generated branding campaigns.
