Topic: If You Confuse, You’ll Lose. Using the Power of Story to Create Radically Clear Marketing
Synopsis: So many startups waste a ton of money on ineffective marketing while searching for product market fit. Yet, product is often not the problem. Many times, prospects are confused by our messaging – they don’t understand how we will help them quickly enough, and so we miss out on opportunities. Brain science tells us that we tune out messages that don’t connect to our need to survive and thrive quickly enough, or messages that are confusing or require too much cognitive load. Story is a “sense making device” that solves this problem by organizing a lot of information into an understandable format. Mapping your company’s story to the 7 key story ingredients is critical to explaining your product or service in simple terms so you can convert more prospects into paying customers.
