I'm pretty sure I've talked about it before, but using brand keywords in Adwords is an awesome strategy!  I've had a few clients baulk at the idea since they already rank well organically for branded terms, but this is a mistake.  There are several reasons to bid on branded terms in PPC and below are some of my favorites from the linked article (love it when another pay per click expert backs my opinion with an excellent article).
