Features vs. Benefits: The Stories that Produce Sales

Features vs. Benefits: The Stories that Produce Sales

The $64,000 question is: Do your customers want to buy what you're selling? If you've done your homework (i.e., market research), and you know without a doubt that your product or service is something people need and/or want, yet you still fail to generate sales, then there's something missing in your marketing messages.

The Crowd Sale Experiment

Simplify a Complicated Branding Story

Simplify a Complicated Branding Story

In preparation for the launch of Story Bistro, I reached out to my readers and asked for your best storytelling questions. At least half of the ones you sent were a variation on this one: I work in two distinct areas. How can I incorporate them both into my story? Or...
How to Eat Your (Marketing) Artichoke

How to Eat Your (Marketing) Artichoke

When you're a solopreneur or the owner of a very small business, it can seem almost impossible to find the time to get it all done. There is, after all, actual work that needs to be finished, or you won't be getting paid. I get it. I'm in the same boat. The important thing to remember though, is that every little bit helps.
