The “BEST-STORY-WINS” Workshop

Be expertly guided through a tried and true process to craft the most compelling story for your brand, product, or service.

Startups

Telling your story clearly is critical to pitching investors, building your team, and finding product market fit.

Stalled

You’ve had some early success but the market has changed, growth has stalled, and disruptors are lurking.

Diluted

You’ve added products or grown through acquisition and now your story feels cobbled together, diluted or muddy.
Story is Foundation
Your story is the foundation of your marketing – on it, everything rests.

Without intentional positioning and clear messaging, all the investment in the world won’t grow your business.

Getting tuned out?

Buyers are exposed to 10,000 brand messages per day. That’s a lot.

With so much NOISE, how can brands possibly expect to reach them without breaking the bank?
C
No matter how many new methodologies emerge, it turns out the answer has been around for a long time.

Think about the movies that keep us on the edge of our seats, or the books we just can’t put down. Storytellers are onto something.

WHAT'S INCLUDED?

Workshop Agenda and Key Deliverables
CHAPTER ONE: Introduction to Story
Learn the brain science behind the power of story and how to apply it to your corporate messaging. Understand the messaging framework that will guide us through the remainder of the workshop.
CHAPTER TWO: Brand Script Message Mapping
Through a guided flow, use the Story Message Map to create your brand, product, or service script. Flesh out the basic structure and content used in creating your elevator pitch, one-liner statements and the rest of your marketing collateral.
CHAPTER THREE: One-Liner Exercise
Together we will create a short-form messaging statement or “one-liner” that will grab your audience’s attention, explain how you solve their problem, and cast a vision of their reward. This statement can be easily memorized by you and your staff so you make a consistent brand, product, or service impression.
CHAPTER FOUR: Elevator Pitch Exercise
Using the raw material from your Story Message Map, we will craft a long-form narrative about how your company, product, or service solves a problem for your target audience. It will guide your all content production going forward, and many companies use this as their corporate or product video script.
CHAPTER FIVE: Marketing Collateral Audit
Time-permitting, we will use the lens of story to audit and make recommendations for your website, marketing funnel(s), printed collateral, email copy, video, social content, slide decks, and testimonials.
CHAPTER SIX: Homepage Wireframe/Design
Using the new positioning and messaging we’ve developed, we’ll turn our attention to your website homepage, auditing the layout and messaging. Does it pass the “grunt test?” We will write new copy and wireframe a new homepage layout that follows best practices for clarity and conversion.

NOTE: Wireframe deliverable is produced outside of workshop hours and shipped 7-10 days from the workshop date.

What other travelers are saying

“We wanted a video to tell our story. Kevin took the time to truly learn about our business, challenges, and opportunities and to help us unify and verbalize our value proposition. In the end we got much more than just a video; we now have a more unified sales approach and message that helps our prospects know who we are and why they should consider working with us. Our meetings with prospects are more productive and our sales process is more efficient.”

Jeff Dreiling
Co-Founder – Complete Technology

“We had tremendous opportunities for growth, but we were concerned because we lacked the enablement resources to fully capitalize on them. Kevin was able to quickly understand our challenges, map out a comprehensive solution, and create compelling resources that positioned us to seize the opportunities before us. As a result, we have faster sales engagements, more thorough customer onboarding, and better customer support interactions. Their help has been invaluable.”

Nick East
CEO – Zynstra

“In our early stages, we knew that finding a comprehensive marketing and training strategy would be critical for growth. Through the production of captivating animated videos, tutorials, webinars, product documentation, e-learning, and email and social media marketing, Kevin helped us attract, recruit and train thousands of people including employees, channel personnel, and customers. The importance of his assistance is hard to overstate.”

Shawn Kennedy
CEO – eDepoze

“I wanted to tell a well-crafted story for my investor’s pitch but I felt unprepared and anxious. I knew I needed an expert in storytelling. Kevin helped me organize my thoughts and tell my story using an innovative yet easy-to-use method. He proved to be very knowledgeable and truly cared for my success. He went the extra mile by providing examples of other pitch stories that were successful. As a result, I delivered my pitch with confidence, and now I have a seed VC firm interested in taking next steps. Thank you!”

Alpa Patel
Founder – Spaceez

“We often found it challenging to deliver our message to clients with clarity and simplicity, which affected my confidence when those conversations did not go my way. Kevin followed a proven formula to deal with this problem, helping us create a communication framework aligned to our brand’s purpose. The process was very easy yet focused.”

Andrés Karam
Account Executive – MX Lightforce

“We wanted to grow our business but I was concerned that we were losing website leads and having trouble breaking through the noise. Kevin listened to our story, challenged our assumptions, and helped us develop a simplified message using the StoryBrand framework. Now I have new clarity about our brand and feel equipped to take our website to the next level so we can capture more leads and increase revenue.”

Adam Robinson
Marketing Manager – Cerasis

“As a young legaltech startup, we knew that getting our message right would be vital to attracting additional investors and finding product market fit, but we were frustrated by our internal attempts to find the right words. Using a very defined process, Kevin brought a fresh set of eyes to our messaging challenge, helping us to explain our value proposition with unique clarity and conviction. As a result, we are much more confident in our ability to compel our target audience and feel empowered to “cross the chasm” and hasten a profitable exit.”

Thadd Hale
CEO – Vector Legal Method

We wanted to expand our ministries but were feeling overwhelmed and ineffective because we didn’t know how to get results. Kevin partnered with us, quickly brought clarity to our story through the BEST STORY WINS workshop, and is now coaching us on a game plan to help us achieve our goals. Now we feel hopeful and equipped to increase enrollment and effectively move our ministries forward with long-term independence.”
