Storytelling for Business
Learn how to tell the kinds of stories that get people clicking, reading, sharing, and buying
Quick question: what was the last link you shared online?
Was it a company's sales page filled with pointless words like "utilize"?
Or an academic paper that was so dry you couldn't even finish it?
Or a long video essay that didn't quite make sense?
The last link you shared was probably a story that moved you.
It may have been a sales pitch... but that pitch was effective.
It might have been data... but that data was interesting.
It could have been a video... but that video was good.
Online, our attention is at a premium, which means only good storytellers get rewarded.
Want to become one?
Welcome to the lessons you need to learn in order confidently tell a compelling story every single time you press Send.
Wait a Second... What Kinds of "Stories" Are We Talking About?
People use the word "storytelling" so much that it's started to lose its meaning.
So let's be crystal clear:
Not every piece of content your business creates is a "story"... but you can still use better storytelling techniques to make it all more readable, memorable, compelling, and effective at inspiring your audience to click, engage, and take action.
Sure, this applies to traditional stories like case studies and testimonials. But it also applies to:
- About Us pages
- Ads (on Facebook and beyond)
- Annual reports
- Blog posts
- Calls to action
- Content marketing
- Customer service
- Data reports
- Donation pitches
- Email subjects and body copy
- Event invitations
- Influencer marketing
- Investor pitches
- Keynote speeches
- LinkedIn outreach
- Mission statements
- Presentations and slides
- Press releases
- Product descriptions
- PR kits
- Recruiting and HR
- Sales pitches
- Social media marketing
- Video scripts
Who Is This Course For?
Does your business (or your own personal income) depend on attracting an audience, keeping their attention, and converting their interest into actions like sales or donations?
If you said "YES," then this course is for you. These quick and simple lessons are perfect for:
In other words...
If you ever spent hours (or even weeks) writing something that YOU thought was amazing, but your audience completely ignored it...
Or, if you just can't tell why some of your stories connect with your audience but others fall flat, so you waste hours trying to replicate past successes by guessing at what may have worked...
Or, if you've been blogging or marketing in obscurity forever, wondering why your growth is stuck in neutral while your peers keep growing at a rate that makes you feel frustrated, confused, and even wondering if you REALLY know what you're doing...
RELAX, because you're in the right place.
You'll love the way this course rapidly builds your storytelling skills and your confidence as a writer, explainer, and speaker.
