Why use Storytelling in Business?
Storytelling is a powerful tool you can use to improve presentations, share a vision, sell products, and connect with customers and colleagues. To put it simply, stories link people. Using an engaging anecdote makes abstract ideas concrete, captivates your audience, and can emotionally connect your listener to your product or service. Anyone in business or sales can benefit from this course!
Using stories to understand your customers
The key to using story-telling to connect with your customers is to drop your sales pitch. Use story-telling to be human and authentic and relate to your clients. According to psychologist Jerome Bruner, information presented in the form of a story is twenty-two times more memorable than just facts. If you want your clients to remember your company, tell them an engaging story.
