21:56
Words pick locks and the right words can allow you to pick the lock inside somebody's brain to win their trust, make them lean in and buy from you. But to do that you need a powerful tool called a one-liner - a concise statement you can use to clearly explain what you offer. Everywhere you put or say your one-liner acts like another hook in the water helping you reel in more and more fish!

#8: Save Your Customers from Failure
21:45

A story lives and dies based on one question: Will the hero succeed or will they fail? This is also true for your marketing. You need to tell your customer what’s at stake if they don’t buy your product. Without clearly showing that failure, your customer has no motivation to make a purchase.

 

This week, J.J. and April work through the Failure section of the StoryBrand framework and show you: 

 

  • Exactly how to talk about failure without overwhelming your customer

 

  • How to breakdown and show the consequences related to not buying your product

 

  • Whether to use short-term vs. long-term failure in your messaging

 

We also talk with Jessie Congleton, one of our amazing StoryBrand Certified Marketing Guides, who shares how introducing failure in her client’s marketing actually inspired customer’s to take action and buy during what was typically a slow season.  Contact StoryBrand Certified Guide Jessie Congleton directly at ClarifyYourMessage.com/JessieCongleton.

#4: What Specific Problem Do You Solve For Customers?
23:37

Can you name the specific problem your business solves for your customers? Identifying your customers' problem deepens their interest in the story you invite them in and shows you truly understand them. It’s the “hook” of your story, but without it, your customers have no reason to engage with your brand causing your story to fall flat.

 

This week, J.J. and April guide you through the Problem section of the StoryBrand framework and how you can:

 

-Clearly identify the problem you solve 

 

-Breakdown that problem into Three Levels of Conflict your customers are facing

 

-Implement problem-language into your marketing and messaging

 

J.J. also talks with Aleya Harris, one of our amazing StoryBrand Certified Marketing Guides, who shares how she worked to specify the problem for a client who was stuck in the weeds trying to figure out exactly what they solved for their customers.

#3: Discover What Your Customer Really Wants
20:26

As a brand, you must define what your customer wants. As soon as you define that, a story question forms in their mind: Can this brand really help me get what I want? Without this, the customer has very little interest in the story.

-Define exactly what your customer wants

 

-Plug that specific language into your marketing

 

-Help transform your customer into the hero after they use your product or service to get what they want
