Self-proclaimed “brand guru” Simon Middleton explains in clear, easy-to-understand terms what branding is, and then he tells you how to do it in this systematic guide to do-it-yourself branding. Even though he writes for small-business owners and entrepreneurs, Middleton’s process applies to large businesses and corporations as well. He makes his subject so enjoyable and even inspiring that reading his guide is like having a conversation with a witty, knowledgeable and helpful friend. However, Middleton ambitiously proposes that you undertake a different branding activity each day for a month. But even if you decide to stretch the 30 days to three months or more, he does explain how to get the job done. And it costs a lot less than hiring an agency or consultant. getAbstract recommends Middleton’s advice, if not the exact timing of his process.

In this summary, you will learn

  • What branding is and is not,
  • Why branding matters to your business’s success, and
  • How to use a systematic process to communicate your brand to your target market.
