Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Filled with both anecdotal and statistical tidbits of information, Branding your Business does great job of getting the reader up to speed on important aspects of branding. Various examples used from corporations, and mixing in direct quotes from leaders in those companies - keeps the material interesting and relevant to real business managers.

James Hammond does a thorough job of stepping through how brands make it into consumer's minds, memories, and the realities of leveraging emotions to make this happen. Interestingly, Hammond also addresses aspects like the senses (smell, taste) - and the impacts these too can have on the customer's brand experience - and your firm. Finally he does also go into the realm of Social Media - briefly.

Although Hammond could have provided more depth on the Social Media portion of Branding your Business - overall this is an excellent read and resource for both professional Brand Managers - and for the Small Business owner who needs to quickly 'figure this out'. Great content!

2.0 out of 5 stars Branding your business - nothing new on the horizon Nov. 17 2013
By Francisco - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Unfortunately the book of James Hammond did not meet my expectations. With the exception of some sections and some well-chosen examples, the book presents a framework called "Brand Halo", which is nothing more than an accumulation of clichés without any practical content. It is a book with a lot of talk but little substance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book on branding for small businesses Dec 26 2011
By J. Latour - Published on
Format: Paperback
James Hammond's book "Branding Your Business" is an excellent book on how to promote your small business (or even your non-profit). This book has 18 chapters and contains a little over 260 pages of great information. James keeps you entertained in this well written book and it is one for your library shelf. He provides friendly advice and advises that the reader read the whole book, which I did. Hammond's says that you can "bootstrap" your small business, "but you can't bootstrap your brand." He also provides great examples of companies such as Amazon, Apple, and Coke and how they do their branding. Even if you think this book is for big business, it is not. It is for the small business owner that is trying to capture customers by getting them to love the brand through emotions, perception, and customer experience. Great businesses do this and they do it through their brand! This is a great book on branding (reviewed on

5.0 out of 5 stars Branding made easy July 10 2012
By cbehal - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In this book James Hammond takes the concept of branding and makes it easy to understand. There is a lot of technical jargon surrounding branding, but he makes it easy for small businesses to find their identity and associate a brand with that to make them more efficient and more successful. Even though I'm only half way through he has already helped to revolutionize how I think about who I am and want to be as a business.
