As a StoryBrand Certified Marketing Guide, we believe in the storytelling approach to marketing, where the customer is the main character in the story, not your brand.
This shift in perspective is essential and transformative - for you and your customer. Making your customer the hero helps them feel seen, heard, and understood. It's their journey, their challenges, and their success that should be your marketing focus.
After all, their success is your success.
Why does this matter?
When a customer sees themselves in your story, they connect more deeply with your brand. It's not about how great your product is, but about how it can help them conquer their challenges and achieve their goals.
So your business should always play the guide; the generous expert, not the hero. Think of Yoda to Luke Skywalker or Tony Stark to Peter Parker. You are there to provide the wisdom, tools, and encouragement to help the hero (customer) succeed.
How can you achieve this?
Playing the supportive guide leads to a more engaged and raving fan base. It fosters a deeper emotional connection with your brand, as you become an ally in their journey.
