A great guide to brand for any small business or indeed any business owner really as it explains the process in a useful broken down real world fashion . Even if you can hire a brand person listen to this first so you can ask better questions and therefore get more out of them .
I recently started a business, this book helped me uncover many flaws within my brand, my story and business plan. If you have a business or in a business that involves a great deal of marketing. I highly recommend this book, some of it is obvious but there are lots of golden nuggets within. Thanks, F.
A great book to get you thinking about brands and what it consists of. However if I had a choice now, i'd get the physical book as there are lots of activities during the book which would be far easier to refer back to.
An excellent walk through of a step by step process from an experienced person for those starting a brand or developing a relatively new one.
Clear English speech. No name dropping and side lining as found in US books on the same subjects, Absolutely packed with information about how to go on. Forget the rest, this is the best! You won't be disappointed!
Good thought provoking, inspiring and encouraging book. Will listen again.
If I had the time, yes.
I have to admit, this book sheds light on what it is to build a brand and gives plenty of activities and takeaway advice that can be put to good work.
The reason I got this book as because I had a small craft business and wanted to build a "brand" / image, but it does not really apply to extremely small business, and I did not finish the book. The voice was good, but the content did not catch my full attention. Shame I had hoped to find the ideal book for my small business.
Loved this book as it has really inspired me and geared me up for my branding and for improvements I could make.
Narrator was good and kept your attention
would definitely recommend this book to new businesses and anyone wanting to inject something into their current business.
I think it would be beneficial for managers to read too.
Try it, you have nothing to loose.
Let's Make it Happen!
