Hi Daniel

Any idea of what they would charge for that, of course we could also do 
it ourselves. I think the idea is very good lets brainstorm a bit more 
on it.

I think the idea should be that only brands that are listed in the 
Top100 ranking from Millward can be added to the top brands list. So the 
way we could do it is that we have a field that is optional in the 
reference form that says Millward ranking with a link to the current PDF 
for people to look up if their project is on the Top100 list and on what 
position. When someone fills out this field an e-mail gets send to 
someone suitable (I could do it without a problem but maybe also more 
than one person so it gets done quickly) saying that they added a 
listing, then the person can check if the position they put in is real 
or not and confirm it if it is.

I like the idea of putting the newest top brand sites at the top as long 
as only Top 100 sites appear there and when you click on more you get 
them listed in the actual ranking order from Millward.

Any other ideas to that? The only issue I see is that when the new 
ranking comes out the values are not valid anymore so there I would 
suggest a mechanism where the person that checks the rankings can send 
out an e-mail blast to all people that have a top brand ranking to ask 
them to check if their Millward ranking id is still correct. Any better 

Best Regards
