How to create a brand story that connects and sells

The key to all transformative brand stories is to make sure they connect to your target audience’s emotions, so it moves them into action to take the next step closer to you.

All marketing, after all, is communication that gets results. It's not about a large email list or social media following that transforms brands. It's intentional communication designed to create a reaction. An emotional reaction that connects your brand to your client’s wants and needs.

This is done through your brand story. Without a brand story foundation, your messaging is unable to connect to the part of the human brain that makes all decisions - our own emotional brains. A brand story that connects and sells is one that transforms your vision into your brand’s mission and purpose, and THAT is the foundation of all great brands.

The Manifesto - A Declaration of Truth, Freedom, And Your Best Life

Otherwise known as a mission statement, it's a statement of what you do in your business that is NOT your "elevator speech" but more a declaration of your beliefs, your values, and your overall mission and purpose of your business. It's the deeper meaning of why you do what you do - as Simon Sinek would call it - your big WHY.

It's called - A MANIFESTO. 

Unfortunately, most business owners aren't taught this when they first start their small business. You're taught to create an "elevator speech", a pitch - which IS necessary, but if you aren't able to communicate and understand your own deeper meaning and purpose in your business, how are you supposed to get other people to be excited about what you do?

What you sell as a business owner is what you sell - but what you REALLY sell and need to communicate with your strategic marketing is your VISION.  DOWNLOAD YOUR FREE MANIFESTO PLANNER.
