BrandAbout’s inspirational and personal approach is based on Syverson’s real world multi-channel expertise in the marketplace as she encourages companies to collaborate both interdepartmentally, intradepartmentally and directly with their customers.

Like a stylized syllabus, BrandAbout is organized into 10 individual building blocks that can be worked through all at once in a self-directed two or three day offsite or integrated individually into weekly or monthly meetings. 

Part Purple Cow, part Whack on the Side of the Head and part inspirational branding guidebook, BrandAbout is actionable, practical and empowering and a must read for creative dreamers and doers looking for a fresh approach to their brand and product challenges.

Think of BrandAbout as creative brain food for busy marketers and merchants!

<i>"Beginning with the introduction, and continuing in every chapter, it is clear Andrea Syverson’s BrandAbout is not a conventional business book. She brings a soulful quality to something that is often justly criticized for having none. Brands often die because they are thought to be static. Successful brands and brand managers understand that businesses, and the brands that define them, need to evolve. If you think you don’t have a brand, think again. In today’s crowded marketplace having a well-defined, evolving brand may be your key to survival and success. This book will help you to better understand the importance of your brand and the critical relationship between brands and merchandising. Reading Andrea’s book will inspire you to look at your brand with fresh eyes and will help distinguish your brand in the marketplace. A must read."</i>
