The 4Es of Marketing and Branding

If you think you have heard it all about branding, you will be surprised when you read The 4Es of Marketing and Branding.


Written both in English and Portuguese, the book is nothing short of innovation. It is the result of two brains, one Brazilian and one American, showing that Branding reaches far beyond design. It integrates marketing and vending concepts and influences results in short, medium and long terms for brands and brand owners.

The 4Es of Marketing and Branding shows a new point of view for the 21st century. It pushes concepts further and proposes new paths for companies that want to improve their sales and marketing results and increase their brand value as an intangible asset. It is a must read for every business, branding and marketing, and human resources executive, manager and expert.

“If  I had to create an episode of Globo Repórter (Documentary broadcast that addresses issues related to the Brazilian way of life, highlighting matters such as health, education, work and nature) about Marketing and Brands, I would use “The 4Es of Marketing and Branding” as its script; not only because of its content but because of its savvy approach and chronological case editing. Undoubtedly it is a recommended reading. Read it, reflect upon it, and even more so, put it into practice.”

Read them to better understand the past; better manage the present… and to better understand the future.”

“Some numbers have been consecrated by the Cabala, such as the 9 or 7, however Marketing’s luck lie on the number 4 (4As, 4 Ps, and 4Cs). I hope that this will be the case with the 4Es – created by Augusto Nascimento in a partnership with the creator of the 4Cs, Robert Lauterborn. A wonderful text and a timely book considering Brand Management is a hot topic nowadays. Its great merits are the innovative, strategic and useful ideas that push towards success through good corporate examples. I recommend it to my current and past students and to everyone who is interested in the area.”

“This book shows everything we have been aiming to do at Natura. We identify with it.”Ler mais Fechar

“This book shows, very effectively, everything we have been aiming to do at Natura. To us, brand meaning goes beyond the concept of a company creating dividends to its shareholders. We make branding a constant search. We see brand as passion, the expression of beliefs. Every action we take should show it. Sometimes we succeed in this search and sometimes we don’t, but the search itself is what gives brand meaning. It is wonderful when others, who actually gives us meaning and defines us, recognize our intention. They can identify with our brand and we expand the community of people building a better and self-sustainable world. It is remarkable to see a book that approaches this matter. We identify with it.”

“It gathers three essential elements: marketing, branding and vending. This mix should be obvious, however it isn’t yet.”Ler mais Fechar

“There are three important things to consider. The first one, it is an innovative book. Instead of restricting brands to design, logo and colours, it amplifies its understanding of value. It gathers three essential elements: marketing, branding and vending. This mix should be obvious, however it isn’t yet. It is innovative because it shows brand’s true weigh due to its value creation, one of the most important elements in the decision-making hierarchy. Second, its historic timeline is one of the most enlightening I have seen. And third, it presents, at its end, a very useful and practical mini-bible for companies that wish to build successful brands. I recommend reading and rereading it”.

“Only people with great skills can simplify the complexities of knowledge.”Ler mais Fechar

“I have known the authors for decades. Lauterborn is a master and thinker. Augusto is an accomplisher and trend anticipator, whom I’ve had the honour to work with. Before CRM was born we were doing database marketing; when the internet was being created and the only browser available was MOSAIC, we were doing websites and marketing through the web. Now, while some see branding as design, as if it is an expertise – Lauterborn and Augusto come together to show the integration of marketing, branding and vending. The result is something innovative and extremely simple. Only people with great skills can simplify the complexities of knowledge. I am honoured to know both of them.”

It will Enrich people managers and directors.”

“A true Branding Almanac; provoking, instigating, retrospective, nostalgic, academic, practical and innovative. All at the same time. I have never read something like it; it is so simple to understand, so easy to practice and so comprehensive it makes us reach outside our expertise and think things as a whole. Worth reading.”

“Buy the “4Es” and take home: a book about history, a book about symbols, a book about religion, science, astronomy…you will read them in just one book. You’ll see branding into various contexts and you’ll have many insights. You’ll start to see branding through different eyes and perspective. I doubt you won’t like it. I loved it.”

“I’ve read it with such delight. What an extraordinary book! I loved the historical part, highlighting the Sears catalogue that has influenced its industry and inspired the creation of the assembling line. I see today’s internet sales as the updated version of what Sears had done over 150 years ago.  Looking at the 4Es I can see that nothing is, in fact, new. Amazon is today’s Sears. Everything is evolution, including the 4Es created by Augusto and Lauterborn, as they show through humbleness and talent.”
