About Jeremy Miller

Jeremy Miller is a brand strategist and bestselling author. His blend of humor, stories, and actionable ideas will inspire you to innovate and grow your business and brand.

Jeremy’s path into branding wasn’t traditional. He fell into it out of necessity. After watching his family’s business nearly hit rock bottom, he was forced to take a hard look at the way the company was run and at their industry as a whole. Jeremy realized it wasn’t his sales people or marketing processes that were failing, it was the brand: their customers couldn’t distinguish them from anyone else. This insight caused him to rethink, reposition, and rebrand the business. The strategy worked, and within a year the company turned the corner and rocketed into growth mode. And in 2013 Jeremy sold his family’s business to focus exclusively on what he does today: build brands.

It was this experience that compelled Jeremy to embark on a decade-long study of how companies grow recognizable, memorable brands. He and the Sticky Branding team have profiled and interviewed hundreds of companies across dozens of industries to uncover how companies grow Sticky Brands.

Jeremy’s first book, Sticky Branding, is a branding playbook for how small- and mid-sized companies challenge the giants of their industry to grow their brands. It was a #1 Globe and Mail Bestseller. His next book is called, Brand New Name. It launches in October! The book provides a proven, step-by-step process to create an unforgettable name. It shows you how to name anything — a brand, company, product, service, or ideas — by unlocking the creative genius of teams.
