The Business of Storytelling
September 26 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Every business owner’s and entrepreneur’s first product and first piece of marketing material should be their story; both the business brand story and CEO/Founder personal narrative. The heart of a business is reliable and relatable, and in this workshop, Path To Publishing’s Joylynn M. Ross and Brandy M. Miller, will help you make it relay-able. Sharing the heart of a business necessitates going beyond the why and articulating the who, what, and how.
This is reliable content because it is part of the origin story; and although businesses may grow and develop, the beginning, big or small, adds value to the journey. This is relatable content because background stories remind everyone that they started from somewhere and are still on path for what is to come. This is beneficial and an important factor for both growing the company and clientele.
Path To Publishing utilizes proven strategies to make the heart of businesses relay-able in a way that connects to their target audience, and in this workshop, Joylynn is going to teach attendees how to do the same.
In this workshop you will learn how getting to the heart of your business will provide a strong foundation to build effective storytelling techniques that bring awareness to your brand and clients to your businesses.
