THE BRANDPOWER EDITORIAL THRUST
• BrandPower magazine is about reporting, analyzing, supporting and creating brands. It is a specialized magazine. Its being specialized is however limited to how it treats issues, news, views and events and not just the marketing and brand-management industry.
• The BrandPower house style is meant to treat all issues that affect economic and social life through the lenses or perspective of brand management. It is the fervent belief of BRANDPOWER publishers that Nigeria will be a much better place if managers and leaders in the political and socio-economic sphere look at life and its various issues through the brand management perspective. We have this conviction based on the fact that some non-essential products have been so well managed brand-wise that we now consider them as essential due to the towering presence of their brand personalities.
• America and Britain which have been masters in Nation branding have since realized this and made it a way of life for leaders and citizens alike.

• However a Nation brand can only be great when it has a good mix of great brands from personality icons to various types of consumer brands. Products, especially extractive products, can make a country rich but may not make them great. The proceeds of the God given products ought to be used to build structures for the establishment and growth of brands. The Dubai example is instructive here.

• Brand Nigeria, we believe has tremendous potential to attain greatness. We have an array of great icons wallowing in near obscurity or under-appreciated. BRANDPOWER seeks to discover and shine the light on these leading lights of Brand Nigeria’s pending greatness while encouraging, fledgling ones to burst forth
