"The Story Means Money - Crafting a Narrative that Builds Your Business ”
Stop. Stop talking about what your company is and stop talking about what it does. You are failing to meet one of the most primal needs of your customers and clients. If you can find a way to tap into this With social media management applications, google analytics, targeted ads, and remote workplace productivity tools entering the entrepreneurial world has never been easier, but it also means that competition has never been so fierce. Currently, to become an entrepreneur the cost of entry is zero.
How can you hope to stand out or compete in such a noisy marketplace? Don't. When you craft a compelling story it allows you to occupy a part of your customer's brain, rent free. When told correctly a story will sell your goods/services for you in a very authentic and organic way. People do not make buying decisions based on facts, they make these decisions based on emotions. I want to show you how to tap into these emotions to increase your business and create stark raving fans. In this session you will learn how to build a compelling story that incites emotion in those that hear it. You will also learn the most common mistakes people make that sabotage their sales efforts.
