Designers, Makers, Artisans

Want to connect with your dream audience, and convert them into paying customers?

It’s time to tell them your story

do you ever…

Find yourself staring at a blank screen and wondering what on earth you are going to say?

Feeling like you need to post something, in a panic you scramble to cobble content together and even though your heart isn’t in it you press publish. Because that is what you are supposed to do, right? Share x amount of times a day so that you stay relevant, at least that is what the gurus on the interweb keep telling you.

You’re starting to feel trapped in a cycle of sharing things that don’t truly reflect the who and why of you and your work but do so because it’s ‘popular’ and so you end up feeling like a clone among many other voices out there.

Or, perhaps you feel like your story is not that interesting anyway, so why should anyone care about what you have to say.

As your judgement gets clouded you find yourself either oversharing in an attempt to keep up or end up not sharing your story at all.

This storytelling business is all starting to feel forced, inauthentic, and downright disheartening.
You’re looking for a way out of the Uncertainty because…

Deep down you know it doesn’t have to be this way.

It can take a bit of time to settle on the stories you want to share and the words and images to convey them, particularly if you are just starting out, BUT what if you could:

  • Regain control over how you craft, share and tell your stories?
  • Use your story to speak to your passion, and highlight the value you have to offer your customers
  • Have a bank of on-brand stories and prompts at the ready when you need them
If you like the sound of this

Why storytelling matters to your craft

Storytelling is an important part of your marketing strategy as a powerful way to attract and connect to your dream CUSTOMER.

Stories serve to shine the light on our humanness and help your audience emotionally connect with you and your work. Keeping your story to yourself is like hiding your light under a bush. Whoever you are and wherever you are your stories matter. We all have stories to tell. They could be ones of hope, inspiration, passion, courage, resilience, or simply be entertaining.

And the stories we choose to share about who we are, what we do work why we do it can be the difference between someone choosing to spend a few minutes longer on your platform as opposed to leaving as soon as they land because your story doesn’t resonate.

Stories told from the heart are what resonate. And it is when you are true to yourself and truly connected to your brand story that you can then show up with a sincerity that is heard in your voice, expressions, and actions.

So, come its time to craft, tell and share your stories, authentically.
