John’s Insights

 

John Livesay CTT

 

When you tug at people’s heart strings they open their purse strings. Are you tell stories when you create content that do this?

If you want to get an emotional connection, then you need to learn how to tell stories so that people see themselves in the story. When this happens they remember the story and share it with their network.

A good story is clear, concise, and compelling. If your story is confusing, people will ignore it. If your story is rambling, people tune out. If your story pushes facts and figures, people forget it. The next time you write a piece of content or tell a story, use the 3 C’s as a checklist to make sure your story is clear, concise, and compelling.

Remember “The Sale is in the Tale” TM
