Branding is Not Just About Marketing
This book focuses solely on the marketing strategy involved in building a brand. However, those of us who are familiar with brand initiatives know that the most difficult part is internal IMPLEMENTATION. This book does not focus on the implementation or organizational change necessary for a successful brand initiative. How do you make sure that all of your employees are on the same track? When your advertising offers one thing, but your employees deliver something else, how do you resolve that conflict? This book fails to answer these fundamental problems.Was this review helpful?

i am an employee of a large company in india and must say that this book has given me the divine inspiration to start my own business as soon as possible. the confidence and the conviction that this book provides with its very realistic and accurate observations and insights makes it a must read. though at some points, the book tends to make radical observations which do surprise you at times, considering that all success does not depend on a strategy,and more on its implementation, with regard to timing and other situations, which cannot be ignored. yet, it is a most truthful book, and for those who would love to be on top of a successful business should read it and consider it very seriously.Was this review helpful?

Like a bomb for your brain!
I read this book in one night while visiting my sister in the hospital. It was a very exciting experience, I had butterflies in my stomach the whole time. I gave it to my business partner, and in a matter of days, we had refocused our web-based business, and started on the correct path again. It's easy in business to start thinking about what else you can sell your customers, and how to reach a bigger crowd. Both of these are mistakes, I believe. Amazon is an absolutely perfect example. Amazon=books. All the other stuff they're hawking just makes them harder to define, and therefore less powerful in the customer's mind. The guy who wrote the previous review obviously is confusing several concepts (and he's practically impossible to understand!). I've read 'The Fifth Discipline' too, and while it's interesting, it really doesn't say much of anything. IF YOU OWN A BUSINESS, READ THIS BOOK, THEN READ IT AGAIN!Was this review helpful?
