New Book Shows How to Build a Brand That People Love to Love


Palmyra, VA, September 04, 2018 --( Beyond Sizzle: The Next Evolution of Branding is a playbook for building a brand that matters.

Brands that matter are companies we love to love because they stand for something more than what they sell. They have earned a reputation not only for delivering quality products or services but also for being great places to work, for pushing their industries forward, and for striving to make a positive difference in the world.

"It's clear that ‘doing well by doing good,' once considered a brand of charities or fringe businesses, is now a brand appropriate to many, if not all, organizations," says author Dr. Mona Amodeo. "Beyond Sizzle will help readers understand how to build that brand for their organization, one that will not only help them thrive economically but also have a positive impact on customers, employees, and the world."

Readers who have enjoyed the works of Wally Olins, Dr. Mary Jo Hatch, Simon Sinek and books like The Brand Flip will benefit from Amodeo's approach.

Amodeo uses her research with global carpet manufacturer and sustainability pioneer Interface to build a case for what's possible when people are fully engaged in working for something they believe in and feel connected to. The research answered her question about if and how a company, not born with the DNA of sustainability values, could change its culture. What she learned, and describes in detail in her book, is that organizations don't need to choose between profit and social responsibility, they can have both. Beyond Sizzle shows how.

Beyond Sizzle: The Next Evolution of Branding, published by Maven House Press, is available now at most storefront and online bookstores.
