Excellent and practical ideas!

Building a brand story is a great book for online marketers. Can't believe I didn't read it sooner. If you're a copywriter or any kind of marketer, theirs something to gain from the concepts laid out in this audiobook. Cheers!

A giant ad for their product.

This book is mainly an advertisiement for their marketing product. Every other sentence mentions the title, making it relatively annoying. Marketing doesn't have to be annoying to customers.

So Good!

Donald gives you the framework and the understanding of why people buy and how to market. This information can be applied to essentially any product or service that exists online or in a brick & mortar store. Thanks for solving my problem! Loved it and I've recommended it to everyone who is in need of marketing.

Have you heard of the SB7 Framework?

If not, you will. This book is one long, drawn out pitch after another ...over and over and over- even his ‘case study’ references are a thinly veiled side pitch for his courses, website, and other assorted nonsense. A total waste of $18

It is OK.

Would you try another book from Donald Miller and/or Donald Miller?

I don't think I would.

Would you be willing to try another book from Donald Miller? Why or why not?

As someone who says he has written multiple books and now has written one on telling stories, you'd think that he could write one that could hold your attention and keep you interested. Not so much in this case.

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

While the reader did an OK job, he lacked the enthusiasm that you often get from books read by the author. Sometimes, it is better to have someone else read the book.

Was Building a StoryBrand worth the listening time?

No, I don't think it was worth the time. The first four chapters of the book consisted of the author providing some high-level information as a thinly veiled attempt to promote his website. From a guy that is writing a book on how to market your brand, I expected to get some value that would hold me in the book. This didn't have it.

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.

If you create things--products, books, sermons, podcasts--this book will help you do it better.

After this book, I am rethinking my messaging on all my projects--both personal and business. Seriously. It's that good.

Informative, but irratating at times

There was a lot of good information in this book as far as a marketing perspective but I also felt that I was being sold other additional services on top of the price of the audiobook.

At one point in the story, he talks politics which nearly completely took me out of wanting to listen.

It's also extremely short and I finished it in a days time. I do think it was an easy and engaging listen though -- Take the marketing tools they suggest, but ignore everything else.

Clear Message About Clear Messaging

Brilliant work. Succinct, straightforward writing, and most of all effective in achieving results. With his proven track record of success, Don gives candid insight that is sure to help any person who communicates messages (which is all of us). Highly recommend.
