Tim Yates, Storybrand Certified Guide and expert using the storybrand messaging framework

Are you overwhelmed trying to market your business?

As a small business owner, I understand how challenging it can be to repeatedly see a problem within your business and know you don’t have the time or know how to fix it. It can make you feel frustrated and overwhelmed.

Each week, I have conversations with small business owners frustrated with their current website and marketing. Most have already invested a lot of money but are frustrated with their results. They are searching for someone they can trust to help them finally see a return on their marketing investment.

At StoryWorks, a Storybrand marketing agency, we get it. We believe you deserve that ROI.

You deserve to finally have a website that works just as hard as you do to grow your business.

Although we as a collective team have decades of marketing experience, our “ah-ha” moment happened in 2019 when our founder, Tim Yates, was frustrated after seeing his clients, repeatedly struggle with knowing what to say when talking about their business. Frustrated by his clients struggle, Tim was introduced to a solution for this problem, the Storybrand Marketing Framework.

After implementing the framework first within his own business and then in the business of his clients, Tim immediately saw results. He knew this simple framework, combined with the SEO strategies he had developed over the years, was the “secret sauce” he had been searching for. After seeing its results, it was a no-brainer for Tim to fly to Nashville in February of 2020 to be trained by Donald Miller and become a Certified Storybrand Guide. Today, Storyworks works as a Storybrand marketing agency and has helped hundreds of small business owners to finally discover the ROI they have been desperately seeking.

StoryWorks Q & A

Common Questions About Storybrand

What is Storybrand Marketing?

StoryBrand marketing is a strategy that helps businesses tell their story in a clear and compelling way. It’s like when you’re reading a book or watching a movie, and you instantly understand what the main character wants and why they’re doing what they’re doing. In StoryBrand marketing, the business is the main character, and the goal is to make sure customers understand how the business can help them.

Here’s how it works:

1. The Hero: In StoryBrand marketing, the customer is the hero, not the business. Businesses are like guides or mentors that help the hero on their journey.

2. The Problem: Every hero has a problem they need to solve. Businesses should clearly state the problem their product or service can solve for the customer.

3. The Solution: Businesses offer a solution to the hero’s problem. They explain how their product or service can make the hero’s life better.

4. The Guide: Businesses position themselves as the guide or mentor who can help the hero. They show how they have the knowledge and experience to lead the hero to success.

5. Call to Action: Businesses tell the hero what to do next. It might be to buy a product, sign up for a service, or contact them for more information.

The key is to keep the message simple and easy to understand. StoryBrand marketing uses words and images that connect with customers on a personal level. This makes it more likely that customers will engage with the business and become loyal fans.

So, StoryBrand marketing is like telling a great story where the business is the helper, the customer is the hero, and together, they create a happy ending. It helps businesses communicate clearly, connect with their customers, and ultimately, be more successful.
