Don didn't disappoint!

Have been a fan of Don Miller for some time now through his podcasts, then the book Story Brand and his daily Business made simple videos. There wasn't a lot I could learn then what I had already through the above mentioned sources. However this was a good source on audio to get polished and reminded on his fundamentals. Follow Don Miller if you are running a business, small or a big one. Best Source to be always educated

To be or not to be the hero ?

Listening to this masterpiece of information “Marketing Made Simple”, I’ve realized I am not Frodo in the story. I am Gandalf the grey, helping Frodo save middle earth. After a few days of reading, or should I saying listening, I have come to love marketing. I recently listened to the story brand audible, and it has skyrocketed my ideas for my screenplay as well. Thank you Donald Miller, and J.J Peterson.

Loved this book

I’m a huge fan of Donald Miller / Storybrand and this book did not disappoint. I’ve read Storybrand multiple times, did the Business Made Simple online course, and listened to all of the Storybrand podcasts and was unsure if this book would really have anything new to say but it was once again filled with valuable information that can be implemented easily (well depends on your skill level). These books and courses have literally changed my life as a web designer and SEO specialist. THANK YOU, DONALD AND THE STORYBRAND TEAM!!! 💕

All Solid Content! No filler. Loved it!

I really enjoyed Building a StoryBrand, and I enjoyed this book just as much. This book gives the foundations of what all your businesses marketing should be aimed at, what language you should use and how to frame it. It doesn’t give advanced copywriting techniques nor does it tell you exactly what to say but it DOES put you on the exact path you should be on. They follow their own advice and give you simple concise instructions to follow with clear language. I love these authors, their podcast, and I even bought their Business Made Simple University which goes into even more detail.

You have no choice but to read every word of this.

Many business owners feel paralyzed by the pressure to compete online, but have no idea which tools to use or how to use them. That's why Don Miller set out to make it simple through his repeatable framework that even a monkey could use, so we can stop questioning whether we are doing it correctly or not, and just KNOW that we are. Debilitating pressure and anxiety spawned from marketing confusion. Is our marketing working, or are we flushing our money down the toilet? It's a question we've all asked, but if you are asking, you already know the answer. But it doesn't have to be scary anymore. You can read StoryBrand and Marketing Made Simple, implement Don's framework, and stop asking that question. Delaying order and action-taking to sort out your marketing mess will only result in despondency. You know, that feeling of hopeless despair. That is what I felt just two days ago before reading this book (3 times, I might add). It is my new marketing bible, and thank God Don put it together. I am now not only a better marketer, but a better leader too with a new level of clarity. Figuring out these marketing best practices on your own would take a lifetime, and I feel that even if I discovered them, they wouldn't be as streamlined as Don has made them for us. With the audiobook comes a host of resources to help you implementing the frameworks WITHOUT lifting a finger. I started drawing frameworks and templates out on my own, but then realized that he already did that work for us and provides it as a free resource. Am I surprised? No. Am I grateful? Yes. Should you be grateful too? Yes. And should you buy this book and read it, then read it again? A resounding... YES!

All you need for Marketing (seriously)

As a follow up to the StoryBrand, this book offers a ton of actionable advice (especially at the end). If anyone were to ask me about starting a business I would strongly advice that they listen to this first (and StoryBrand) before wasting money of advertising. It provides exactly what it says in the tin.... marketing so simple your grandma could follow it. Thank Donald and JJ... you guys are my saviour!

And I thought I knew it all...

Nothing short of brilliant. This book made me look at marketing in a different way. Now I'm re-doing my website, landing pages and I'm even changing the way I introduce myself! Love these guys, they have made my business fun again.
