Publisher's Summary

An essential part of any marketing professional’s tool kit - this strategic and actionable guide shows you how to apply the renowned StoryBrand framework to your brand.

Every day, brands lose millions of dollars simply because they do not have a clear message that tells consumers who they are and what value they will add to their customers’ lives. To solve this dilemma, Donald Miller wrote Building a StoryBrand, which has become the quintessential guide for anyone looking to craft or strengthen their brand’s message.

Now, Don is taking it a step further with this five-part checklist that helps marketing professionals and business owners apply the StoryBrand messaging framework across key customer touchpoints to effectively develop, strengthen, and communicate their brand’s story to the marketplace.

Exercises and charts are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

Praise for Marketing Made Simple

"I created collateral for a client and they recently told me not to release the next round we created because they can’t handle the influx of customers from the first round. They had more listings this year than in 30 years of business." (Amy Burgess, marketing consultant)

"My last email campaign I delivered raised $20K. Thank you Donald Miller for giving me a system that I know works." (Ian Stewart, owner/creative director of Root Source Digital)

"A client went from $15MM last year to $27MM so far this year. All from updating their messaging and implementing new lead generators and email campaigns." (Wes Gay, CEO Wayfinder)

"Just heard from one of my clients that she’s getting 18 ideal client leads a day from her website. Before we redid her wireframe, she averaged around 1-3 leads a week. And that’s just with updating her website." (Amy Schutte, owner of Hudson and Co LLC)

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Most useful and tangible tool book I’ve listened to

Did this in a day and it was the best book I’ve heard on the subject. Not just flow but tangible.

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.

Beautifully Simple and Applicable

These guys did a fantastic job of making what has traditionally been complex, simple. As an executive marketer in a Fortune 500, I can honestly say this applies to ALL - not just B2B, not just B2C, not just large or small, but ALL. Great work, gents!

I love this book. It gives such a great outline for how to effectively use a sales funnel, which they help you create, to market your business and I couldn’t be more happy with what I learned it was everything I hoped it would be and more!

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.
