- The power of storytelling
- Facts tell, stories sell
- How to build your story
- Getting to know your audience
- Effective connected communication is rooted in the art of storytelling and pre-wired for success in our brains.
- Most people buy based on emotion – they won’t remember what you said or what you did, but they’ll always remember the way you made them feel.
- Storytelling is all about how you as the storyteller show up – what is the mindset that you’re in, and what is the emotional place you’re at when you’re in front of the audience you’re trying to reach?
- The key to building rapport is knowing your audience and reading them and understanding their personalities.
“When it comes to sales, the best way to use story is to try and figure out your audience – who they are, what they want, what their needs are, and then match those stories so that they can see themselves in that environment, they can see themselves in that vision in that scenario with that product.” – Stephanie Paul
