  • Storytelling is a powerful tool to grow your business and stand out from the crowd.
  • Your story is unique and can be used to connect with your audience.
  • A good story has a clear message, relatable characters, and a compelling plot.
  • Don’t be afraid to share vulnerable moments in your story, as they can help you connect with your audience on a deeper level.
  • Your story can be used in various aspects of your business, from marketing to sales to content creation.
  • Your story should not only showcase your successes, but also your failures and obstacles you have overcome.
  • Sharing your story can help attract your ideal clients and repel those who are not a good fit.
  • AI-generated images in ads can perform better and grab more attention than traditional, on-brand images.
  • Using unusual or unexpected images can also help stop the scroll and grab attention.
  • Click-through rates for campaigns that use AI-generated images can be higher than industry averages.
  • A powerful marketing message should describe the transformation that the client experience
  • It’s important to describe the specific moment that led to the client’s realization that they needed to make a change.
  • A good marketing message should outline the framework that helped the client experience their transformation.
  • To be effective, marketing needs to be grounded in authenticity and a deep understanding of the target audience.

  • “I want people to understand that story is the foundation for everything”
  • “It stops the scroll… actually makes people stop versus like a beautifully branded image.”
  • “Marketing is just about testing so it’s like test it out and see what… happens.” “Making sure it’s what your client… is feeling or experiencing… the moment I like to say is the Awakening.”
  • “They just share the before, maybe they share the moment and then they share the after and they’re like this is how I felt before this is what happened and then here’s how.”
