New Book Offers Guidance on How to Brand a Company as a Force for Good

Palmyra, VA, July 02, 2018 --(PR.com)-- More and more, organizations are judged not just for the
quality and price of their products but for who they are. Many customers now expect a business to be a
force for good. "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 - brands such as Ben & Jerry's, IKEA, Patagonia, and Tom's of Maine. 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.

Since the 1950s, companies have relied on branding as an advertising tactic to cut through the clutter of
choices by building emotional connections between the qualities of their brand and the motivations of
their audiences. When done well, branding creates a competitive advantage by building relationships
people trust.

However, three emerging trends in today's complex marketplace have presented new challenges to
influencing the choices people make about who to buy from, work for, and invest in. These shifts include:
the hyperconnection of people forged by technology, the growing skepticism of the formal
communications pushed out by organizations, and the shifting expectations about the social responsibility
of business. Successfully responding to these shifts is critical to creating the trust needed to position
organizations to compete.

"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 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."

The opportunity to conduct a research project with global carpet manufacturer and sustainability pioneer
Interface awakened Amodeo to 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 thought-provoking, inspirational, and practical 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, will be released on
September 4, 2018, and is available for pre-order now at most storefront and online bookstores.
