I simply love new books. There is nothing that compares to the smell of a new book… for real (someone please make a new book candle or let me know where I can purchase one!).
Imagine taking a journey to the nearest Barnes and Noble and smelling ALL the books and sitting in the comfy chairs to read said books over a Starbucks chai tea latte (this is a pretty typical Friday night date for my husband and I).
Yet, as good as the new book smell is, the best thing is when you find a book that is helpful and that spurs you toward success. That’s why I decided this week to share with you a few books on Branding that are great reads and that will totally help you in achieving your goals towards brand authenticity.
1. The Brand Gap: How to Bridge the Distance Between Business Strategy and Design, by Marty Neumeier- In this short book, Marty Neumeier shares how to use strategy and creativity together to take your Brand to the next level to have an edge over competitors.
2. Breakthrough Branding: How Smart Entrepreneurs and Intrapreneurs Transform a Small Idea into a Big Brand, by Catherine Kaputa- The author of this book is an expert in her field, who has legitimately worked with celebrities and ad campaigns to help them become successful. She explains what goes into a Brand and breaks things down so you can understand how to go about turning your Brand into something big.
3. Passion Brands: Why Some Brands Are Just Gotta Have, Drive All Night For, and Tell All Your Friends About, by Kate Newline- This book explains why consumers become brand evangelists (someone who recommends a brand to everyone and anyone because it is that awesome). This book will help you think about how you can turn your brand into something that people will rave about.
