B2B and B2C customer acquisition increase with storytelling!
When it comes to building sales relationships with new clients, storytelling is invaluable for three key purposes: delivering information, persuading customers, and creating a personal connection. Buyers are looking for ‘cues’ and ‘signals’ that the seller is "trustworthy". Stories are a credible form of communication capable of delivering such cues. The difference between a persuasive argument and a good story is that a story casually links events or relatable situations, rather than forcing an agenda. So, don’t forget to think like a storyteller when you are focused on making an argument or outlining benefits and features for a potential customer.
Storytelling can squash the skeptic in your customer! Selling through storytelling becomes easier. Stories tend to follow a narrative structure that looks a lot like a pyramid with an inciting incident, rising action, climax, and resolution. A good story can go further than any amount of data or facts you have to offer customers. “Life happens in the narratives we tell one another. A story can go where quantitative analysis is denied admission: our hearts,” Monarth writes in Harvard Business Review. “Data can persuade people, but it doesn’t inspire them to act; to do that, you need to wrap your vision in a story that fires the imagination and stirs the soul.” So, tell your stories through quality Video and Photography to the customers, understand them better and succeed in your business.
