Build a breakthrough brand for the price of a coffee

A good friend and mentor of mine, Barry Silverstein, just published a new eGuide entitled Branding 123, Build a Breakthrough Brand in 3 Proven Steps. In it, Barry shares his knowledge and experience as a marketing and creative professional. The book is “designed around one thing: to help make your brand a breakthrough brand, because that’s what a brand needs to be to succeed today.” Small business owners, in particular, will benefit from the information shared. It’s a quick read and may be the wisest investment you make in growing your business.

The book gives a thorough background and definition of branding and the influence a brand can have. Many examples are sited which help to simplify the understanding. “If a brand appeals to a consumer on both a rational and emotional level, it has a very strong chance of becoming a memorable, long-lasting brand.”

The book really does a nice job of explaining – in simple terms – the advantages and differences between establishing a company brand and a product brand. Step-by-step advice is shared on how to build your brand position, brand identity, and marketing plan. Since creating brand preference is typically one of your goals, knowing your target audience and their buying patterns is a good place to start.

I would encourage anyone looking for practical tips and strategies on strengthening their brand and/or growing their business to take a closer look at this eGuide. It is written for a wide audience of professionals – not just marketing folks.
