The one question all brands should ask themselves, continually.

Available On Amazon

Do They Care?

Strong brands have people who care—but not by luck or accident. Strong brands nurture care from all the people who are material to their success. You can too. This book will show founders, senior executives, or branding, marketing, and human resources leaders why people want to care about their brands and how to enable them.

Who will benefit most from reading Do They Care?

Do They Care? was written for founders, senior executives, and branding, marketing, or human resources leaders. However, you don’t have to have one of those titles to benefit from what’s inside. If you have responsibility for any relationship that is important to your brand’s success, we think you’ll be happy reading Do They Care?

Who is “They”?

“They” refers to anyone who is important to a company or brand’s success: employees, customers, the news media, government officials, and the general public. In fact, after the introductory chapter, the book starts with employees, because it’s (almost) impossible to have happy customers if you do not have happy employees. The book ends by encouraging readers to do a little soul-searching themselves. Do they really care about their brand’s mission?

The book is only 100 pages. Isn’t that a little light?

Here’s a little-known secret: very few people read business books cover to cover. We didn’t read that in a book somewhere. (Get it?) Instead of filling pages with content just because there’s an expectation that books need to be hundreds of pages, Spencer simply stopped when he had said all there was to say!

Where did the idea come from?

When thinking about the common denominators that all brands share, especially those that no one has explored yet, Spencer realized that caring is the base feeling behind all brand loyalty.

Why is Do They Care? only available through Amazon?

Good question! This book is Spencer’s first, and one he wrote in between creating great brand strategies for clients of his consulting business, Spencer Brenneman. That means that managing the intricacies of multi-platform distribution was time-prohibitive. But wait! Isn’t that a publisher’s job? True, but only if you’re an established author with a track record of best-sellers. Maybe next time!

All of my colleagues should read this book! Can we get a volume discount?

Unfortunately, that’s between you and Jeff Bezos!

Can Spencer speak to my company or event?

That’s definitely a possibility! Let us know what you have in mind, by emailing

Is there a follow-up book in the works?

Not quite yet, although Spencer says that there are a couple of ideas banging around in his head.
