Infographic: GoPro Is Growing at Breakneck Speed | Statista
via Statista

In April 2014, GoPro was listed by Adweek as one of the “Top 10 Best Brand Channels on YouTube” based on a combination of views, shares, comments and overall engagement

 while early this year there were rumors about GoPro  making a quadcopter drone, but few details have since been shared about the project. However today that was confirmed as GoPro had just uploaded the first footage from the drone to its YouTube channel .GoPro ( former  Woodman Labs, Inc), is an American manufacturer of action cameras, often used in extreme-action videography.

The quadcopter drone “video grab were remarkably smooth, and the video also claims that the footage was not stabilized in post, but this could just be a result of careful filming.

In about 13 months since GoPro’s IPO , it is  currently trading at around $60 per share (up 150 percent from its IPO price of $24) and reported another great quarter this week, with the company posting a $35 million profit on revenue of $420 million.

the best brands this year :The brand ranking index 2015

The power of a brands power"

BRANDS have a logic and meaning of their own right. All brands  have a rich heritage But how much are they worth? Three companies that measure brand value have healthy disagreements. There is a consensus that three technology companies—Google, Apple and Microsoft—belong among the top five.  And there are significant differences about big consumer brands. as Millward Brown and Interbrand think Coca-Cola and McDonald’s are top-ten brands; Brand Finance even doesn’t think that

The only option is to go with the rating the brand itself  give them themselves based on third parties  study.  Economist’s own unscientific study showed that Interbrand’s brand value is highest (based on 515,000 Google search results), followed by Brand Finance (at 332,000) and Millward Brown (with 212,000). The BrandZ list has a stronger brand than the consulting firm that produces it, with 1.7m results. It would be interesting to see how the three firms rank their own brands using their respective methodologies.
