Selling With Storytelling - 5 Stories That Sell

Selling With Storytelling - The 5 Stories That Sell

More and more, video communication is taking over the way we do business, right?

We saw FB introduce "live" video, then Youtube, now Instagram TV has hopped on the band wagon...

Why is that?

Because the ability to connect with our audience is FASTER. EASIER. MORE EFFECTIVE.

And when people LIKE, KNOW and TRUST us, they are more likely to buy from us.

Therefore, we have to learn how to effectively communicate and SELL our audience in a way that's not "offensive" or "stand-offish".

We have to understand how to get them to trust us without them always feeling like we are "selling".

So how do we sell MORE without being "salesy"?

We tell STORIES.

As humans, we're designed to recall and remember "stories" better than we are "lists of features".

We connect with stories because they are relatable.

And we relate with stories because we often have been in that situation or know someone who has.

In marketing our business, we're sharing our...

My #1 Secret To Client Retention

 

My #1 Secret To Client Retention

As travel experts trying to grow our businesses, we're usually focused on the acquisition of new customers, right?

We're always thinking about new ways to:

HOW TO STOP WORRYING WHAT OTHERS THINK

Stop Worrying What Others Think

Do you live life controlled by others and what they think about you?

If so, you’re not alone. I’ve been there done that.

And I had to search for a way out from what trapped me from becoming who I really was and who I was really made to be...sound familiar?

The kind of person you are right now (assuming you’re in this situation) is the same exact person that I was for 37 years of my life.

I’d walk down the street and if someone I knew was passing by and didn’t say "hi" or maybe kinda looked at me funny when I said "hi"...I’d be like:

  • “Oh my gosh! Do I have stuff in my teeth?!”
  • “Do I look fat?
  • "Is there something wrong with the clothes I'm wearing?!”

I was so insecure!

I was worried so much about why that person didn’t say "hi" to me the way that they should have and I would adjust everything that I was doing – even if they were right. Silly,...

STOP NEGATIVE SELF TALK

How To Stop Negative Self Talk

How nice are you to your friends? Just think about it.

You give them compliments, you encourage them, you show them respect, and support them in achieving their dreams.   

Well, it’s just as important to be kind to yourself!  After all, the longest relationship you’ll have is the one you have with yourself, AND you spend the most time with YOU.

It’s crucial to spend quality time discovering what you love most about yourself. Negative self-talk can often go unnoticed since it involves things you "silently" say to yourself. And even if you’re only saying those things inside of your head, it can GREATLY impact you and your whole being.

Negative self-talk is something that you’re probably used to doing...but, the truth is - you’re an incredible person!

I want you to think about all the beautiful things you’re capable of. Think about how important you are to those around you!

How To Be Insanely Productive

 

How To Be Insanely Productive

Is it possible to be INSANELY productive every day?

It could seem overwhelmingly IMPOSSIBLE if you think about it for too long... but I’m here to tell you that it’s just the opposite!

In fact...how we survived as CAVEMEN have a lot to do with productivity!

Let's chat because...what does that have to do with productivity at all?

CAVEMAN DAYS

So God designed us to be able to fight for survival through the instinct of STRESS.

Back then, we only "stressed"  about 4 main things: Food, Shelter, Danger & Procreation

Obviously, if you're reading this, the stress we generally REALLY have to stress about is "danger", right?

So, in the caveman days AND as well as today, the human brain is designed to react TO AND assess ANYTHING "out of the ordinary". We have to make a decision about anything that we come across that is not related to what we are focused on in the present.

Confused? Think about...
