What is the value of a brand for a consumer? A manufacturer? A retailer?

This is a Bank of America case study. It is due in 3 days. I will attach the template to following in writing the case study, including the case study in pdf.


I have suggested that this case is best “read” with an Internet connection nearby — as their are streaming videos embedded in the case. That said, you can get most of the case by reading — and then returning to the videos.

Graubins’ decision will drive marketing strategy in the U.S. for at least the the next couple of years.
