    "A novel approach, but...."

    It is hard to overlook the authors relentless attempts to sell his system throughout the book.

    I don’t recommend logging into the website for the Story Brand template; unless of course you are happy to extend the invitation to Donald Miller to continue his quest to make you a Story Brand client via your inbox.

    If you are patient enough, you can get some good communication tips; personally, I abhor the practice of automating mail-bombing, however well the messages are constructed.

    "One of the best marketing books you can read "

    I have read most decent marketing books, and have even written chapters and articles myself as well as having done many talks and building a multi-million company. This is genuinely one of the best most practical books you can get. I have already bought multiple copies for my team.

    Story
    "A very long sales letter to an expensive course"
    What would have made Building a StoryBrand better?

    Before you buy the book go to the site and try and put together a 'brandscript' - this is the best offering you are going to get and this is intentionally used as a tease to sell you a course.


    What was most disappointing about Donald Miller’s story?

    It's not a story - is a very long sales letter.


    What didn’t you like about Donald Miller’s performance?

    I was so looking forward to this book - I had planned the weekend to read the book it's 8hrs and then to have a finalised written 'script' - I personally found the information wanting. In order to implement the content you need to go on the course. The reviews were excellent, I am now actually thinking there ought to be a plausible rating system from 'experts' as there are for films.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Very angry - I can't believe that I fell for this. I could not log in to the site. It would not except any number that were not US ones so you could not complete the form. No response from my emails etc etc from someone talking about brands!!

    Story
    "So good you may want to keep it to yourself! "

    I loved listening to Donald.
    I have struggled with online marketing and Don made sure that I can identify my faults and my strengths using his SB 7 system. Now I can finally make progress without feeling like I'm gambling money away.

    The book is easy get through, the chapters are somewhat sequential but a seasoned marketer could get away with dipping into random chapters if they wish.

    The chapter lengths are under 20 mins and if you wanted to really let it sink in you could easily stick to a chapter a day and be a master in a month.

    The key message is clarity and once you go through the book you will not only have the tools to communicate a clear business message, but also the knowledge to apply that to create sales.

    I highly recommend.

    Story
    "Literally changed my life overnight."

    I've been running a business for the last 10 months and I've had less-than-stellar results. My entire business had been built on referrals up until this point. I had not been able to capture leads using actual marketing techniques, and I'm a marketer for god sakes! I just didn't seem to be connecting with my audience with my marketing. A friend told me about this book in very brief description, and something drove me to go out and get it. So I did that very night and I had torn through it by the next morning. I was finished with it by lunch time and I went home to write an email to a group I've been emailing for months now to no avail. I sent the email by 3 p.m. and by the time I woke up at 8 a.m. the next morning I had three people on my schedule. That evening I spoke to a client and negotiated a five-figure deal which I officially closed 2 Days Later. I was at the point of being completely penniless and this book changed everything. If you're a marketer this is an absolute must read. If you're a business owner and need to Market your business this is an absolute must-read.

    "Every entrepreneur should read or listen to this book."

    This book is so rich on content I need to give it another listen. The basics of the book are clarifying your message and making your customer the hero of the story. Miller goes into detail and lays out the framework and gives plenty of real life examples. This is an invaluable business/marketing/branding book.

    "Teach a man to fish, Change their life - THIS BOOK"

    I'm blown away. This book articulates the truths in how people think and connect it with how they make decisions. I make promo videos and this book is making such a large impact on me that I can hardly stop rabbit trails of applications into everything I want to do.

    Thanks, Donal Miller, for pursuing human truths, pursuing the structure of 'story', and explaining how it's the gold standard model for business.

    I'm so excited to apply these principles.

    "Implementing is Dynamite"

    I've been following Donald Miller for the last five or six months through his podcast. We even went so far as to hire one of his story brand certified guides that's here in Washington close to where our business is. Needless to say, the principles that Don teachers in this book have begun to drastically change our philosophy in our business and we are just now beginning to see the results! This is exciting stuff and means real money to me and to our employees. Thank you Don for simplifying the strategies in this book to help us grow our business.

    "Many Pieces Placed in the Marketing “Puzzle”"

    I blazed through this book on the first day it was released because I couldn’t get enough of it. I can now go back through and ‘chew’ on all the “gold nuggets” of information (which are lined throughout the book).

    I’ve been doing digital marketing for about 6 years now and this book put many ‘pieces’ into place in a clear and succinct manner.

    Anyone looking to learn, grow, or refine your marketing skills, this book is a must! No matter your background or experience, there is value delivered on every page.

    "Make a brand story with your customer as hero"

    This follows a goo pattern for ensuring your organization or business tells a story, where the client is the hero and you are the mentor. Following the framework ensures all your marketing efforts are focused on the customer and not yourself.
