All in A to Z

A to Z of Business Storytelling: Listen

Customers are your business – it’s as simple as that. Without them, you wouldn’t have a business. If you don’t listen to their needs, they’ll go elsewhere. But how can you get to know their stories about your business? By listening. I mean really listening: receiving feedback – the good, the bad, and the ugly – and taking action to improve your business in your customers’ eyes.

A to Z of Business Storytelling: Keywords

A “keyword” is simply defined as a specific phrase that drives traffic to a URL. SEO keywords range from a singular word to complex phrases and are used in website copy to attract relevant, organic search traffic. When used effectively, keywords act as a conduit for your target audience to find the most appropriate content on your website.

A to Z of Business Storytelling: Hero

When we write about our own businesses, it’s really tempting to sit down and write out what we know about best: our own products and services. After all, it’s our job to get the word out about this amazing solution we’ve created for our customers, right? If only it were that simple! The truth of the matter is that writing content that converts readers into paying clients isn’t, in fact, about our product or service at all. It’s about our buyer, and we want them to feel like the hero of the story.

A to Z of Business Storytelling: Go with your Gut

Your gut instincts. Your inner voice. Call it whatever you want, but we all have that thing in our brains and our bodies that flares up when we sense danger or something doesn’t sit well with us. That little feeling is something that we can use to our advantage in marketing our businesses, and I encourage you to figure out how to dial into that feeling and understand what your gut is telling you.
