"This book is a generous work of genius. The Difference Map is now an essential component for anyone who is serious about doing work that matters, and Bernadette Jiwa is the bright new star to lead us there." (Seth Godin)
Marketing is not a department - it's the story of how you create difference for your customers.
We spent $500 billion globally on advertising in 2013. Every year we're spending more money, to interrupt more people, more often, with messages they don't care about and don't pay attention to. We've come to believe that the way to succeed is to have an advantage - by being different or better, more visible, or just plain louder.
What if, instead of finding ways to be one step ahead of your competition, you could build and market your business to give people a reason to choose you? What if you could completely reinvent a category or experience? What if you could stop trying to beat the competition, and become the competition?
Difference lifts the lid on how brands like Airbnb, Uber and Apple have succeeded by creating difference and gives you a new one-page method for reimagining your business and reinventing your marketing. It helps you to recognize opportunities that create value, to develop products and services that people want, and to matter to your customers.

The material is good building on several well known business books that are current. It is well thought out and unique.
The book has a lot of sections and while I really like the author reading their own book, she doesn't pause between sections well (long enough), which makes it difficult to follow at times.
This book woke me up to my own conclusions and warned me of care in making them. Marketing really is what difference we make people feel with everything we do as a business. Its brevity makes it even more impactful. Love it.
Very enjoyable and beautifully read in Bernadettes Irish lilt. Only the case studies at the end got a bit repetitive. I'll be using the difference map in my business ventures.
"The BEST Business book I have EVER read!"
I am at a redevelopment and rebranding phase in my business - Thank God I found this bookat the start of this process . it changes everything!
I'm telling everybody about this book
