How To Write A Story That Sells


Don Miller is a dude who penned BrandStory and distilled the structure of every single story every told into three lines.


Here it is: 


A CHARACTER who wants something encounters a PROBLEM before they can get it. At the peak of their despair a GUIDE steps into their lives, gives them a PLAN and CALLS THEM TO ACTION. The action helps them avoid FAILURE and ends in a SUCCESS.


So, let's take this and apply it to selling your services.


Ingredients:


// One client (substitute for your ideal dream client if you don't have one handy)
// One client problem they had before they worked with you
// One client success they have after they worked with you
// One service
// One way to buy your services (e.g. enquire now, buy now, book in a phone consult)

Mix in all ingredients.

A CLIENT who wants something encounters a PROBLEM before they can get it. At the peak of their despair YOU step into their lives, giving them a SERVICE and CALLING THEM TO BUY NOW. The action helps them avoid FAILURE and ends in a SUCCESS.
