Don’t Sell, Just Tell a Story

What if every time you gave a presentation, made a sales pitch to a prospective client, or tried to inspire a team member, you had the power to persuade them to take action?

What if you were able not only to describe the benefits of your product or process, but also give your potential clients or buyers an immediate experience of the success or the happiness you’re promising?

You can. By harnessing the power of great storytelling.

Using the 5-Step Story Essentials Checklist™ that they developed, World Champion Speakers Darren LaCroix, CSP, AS and his coach Mark Brown, CSP will show you a proven way to grow your business and transform your audience.

What’s the Problem?

If you aren’t closing the sale or inspiring action, you’re probably not using powerful stories. Do you know what your business story is or even where to find it? Without using stories, you’re just throwing facts and figures at potential clients; and they won’t stick.

But It Gets Worse…

Maybe you already know your story, but when you start to tell it, you notice people nodding off, disengaged, or looking for an escape route. If your story is boring, that’s even worse than no story at all. Maybe you’ve gotten help with one story, but you don’t know how to recreate the process to make all of your stories more compelling and influential for your target audience. Most people think they are good storytellers but have never been trained to know the essential elements from master storytellers. Great stories build trust and make people want to do business with you. Are you missing out?

There's Hope When You Know Their Proven Process

In the Better Stories, Better Business Master Workshop, you will discover how to apply the principles of great storytelling to your business presentations, web pages, and videos. Everyone loves a good story. Savvy business owners use great stories to build their businesses. You will walk away with the power and understanding to change the emotional state of audiences, clients, and followers and to move them to take action.

You’ll learn how to present your marketing story in such a way that your potential buyer, client, or subscriber identifies with the hero of that story and experiences the emotion of the story through that character. You’ll build trust so they will want to do business with you.

You are not coming to attend a three-day workshop; you are coming to transform the way you present for the rest of your career! Research shows that within one hour of leaving an event, people will have forgotten approximately 50% of the information that was presented to them. Within 24 hours, they will have forgotten nearly 70% of new information; and within one week, it increases to 90%. This is why we give you one full year to review the recordings as often as you’d like. Be a sponge. When you rewatch the event with your notes, you’ll get even more insight every time through!

100% Risk-Free Darrentee

We personally guarantee that you will be thrilled with the results of this program as long as you use the tools. The tools have been proven to work over and over again. If, after the first day, you honestly believe you have not received the tools that empower you to create an unforgettable presentation, let us know; and we’ll issue you a prompt and courteous refund.

How Much Will This Cost Me?

What is a proven-process worth? What is your time worth? Working privately with a story coach could cost you thousands of dollars. This is no problem for CEOs of large corporations, but what about those of us who don’t have thousands to spend in order to improve? We want to make this education affordable. During the LIVE Master Workshop, you get two teachers with vastly different backgrounds (though both are masters of storytelling) who will give you the hands-on skills you need to take your stories to the next level. All for a price you can afford. You’ll walk out of this workshop with the first step to a better business. Darrenteed.
