Stories That Sell Intensive
Find the stories that generate deeper connections + bigger profits.
It’s time to stop hiding behind your computer screen, pretending you’re just like everyone else in the online business world.
It’s time to plan and create content that goes deeper than “5 Steps to a Successful Launch.”
Wave goodbye to your comfort zone. We’re headed for open water.
It’s time to get real. Authentic. Transparent. Whatever word you want to use for it. You need to put all of you in your content and your content strategy. No more self-censoring.
Did you panic just then? I think I felt it. I know I certainly panicked when that idea occurred to me. I knew I had to be mistaken. There must be another way to reach the next level, to see the impact and the profits I dreamed of.
But there wasn’t. No matter how much content I created, no matter how many connections I made, nothing worked. I was at a plateau – dreaming of being a big name with a thriving business but never making progress towards it.
And then one day, I realized what was wrong.
No one online really knew me. I wasn’t putting all of me in my business. I had crafted a beautiful online persona, and I was hiding behind it.
So I stopped hiding. I started telling my stories and allowing my personality to shine. And it was terrifying. I just knew that I was going to face ridicule, rejection, and failure online.
But you know what? I didn’t. In fact, I became even more confident in myself and my business. I started to connect with the people who were 100% my dream clients. I realized that the connections stemmed from my stories. People were resonating with my experiences, and they were hungry for more.
And even with all of that going for me, I can still feel your resistance. I know what you’re thinking. “But why should I tell my stories? Why step out from behind my carefully crafted online persona? That’s terrifying. And things are going just fine, thank you very much.”
Here’s why you need to share your story:
Because things could be even better.
Because your audience could be more engaged.
Because you could make a deeper impact and see greater profits.
Because emerging from your shell is the only way to form lasting relationships with your audience and your dream clients.
Because people have grown so tired of the manufactured content that’s rampant online. They’re numb to the whole “10 Ways to Run a Successful Business” blog posts.
Because you have meaningful, inspiring stories that the world needs to hear.
And it’s time to tell them. Strategically. With the Stories That Sell Intensive.
What Is the Stories That Sell Intensive?
The Stories That Sell Intensive is a unique experience that’s perfect for entrepreneurs who are ready to do some deep digging to find the stories that will connect with and inspire their dream clients.
In addition to finding your stories that sell, we’ll also refine your dream client personas and create stories for them. No more wondering what will resonate with your audience. No more guessing about how to sell a product or service. You’ll know what to do and say to get your potential clients to buy.
3-month content strategy
The 5 Phases of the Stories That Sell Intensive
(See it in action!)
Before we meet for our 3-hour intensive, you’ll have some homework to do. You’ll receive access to your Trello board, where you’ll be able to fill out the Business Foundation list. This list includes basic information about your business, like what you do, the benefits of working with you, and the products and services you offer.
You’ll also receive your Stories That Sell Intensive Workbook. You’ll fill out the appropriate sections of the workbook, including the Expectations section, the Dream Client section and the Products and Services section.
I’ll look over your workbook before we start the intensive, and we can discuss any questions via Trello or Voxer.
Based on your dream client persona’s stories and profiles, we’ll dig deep into your life and your business to find stories that your dream clients will resonate with. We’ll talk about your dream clients’ problems and how you relate to those problems. This is going to go deep, and you may find yourself sharing things you never thought you would. That’s good. It means you can use that in your business to really connect with potential clients.
We’ll also pull out stories based on the products and services you provide. I’ll dig to find the story behind each product or service you offer to get to the bottom your story for each one.
Once we know your brand stories and which ones would best resonate with your audience, we’ll talk about how to use each story specifically. We’ll also pair your stories up based on which product or service they go best with.
From there, we’ll create a 3-month content strategy that includes your stories and how you can use each one specifically.
How do we get started?
Who’s behind this?
Hey! I’m Ardelia Lee, story strategist for online entrepreneurs. I help my clients dig deep, look within (and sometimes without) and find the stories that will help them create deeper connections with their audience, convert more dream clients, and grow their impact.
I work with my clients to bring their unique, inspiring stories to the forefront of their business by showing them how to use their stories in their sales content and their everyday content.
Don’t think you have a story? You do. In fact, you have a lot of stories that need to be told. I was actually in that whole “I don’t have a story” boat not too long ago. It can be difficult to get out, so if you’re struggling with that, we’ll cover mindest-building strategies that will help you realize you do have stories to share.
Also, I’m a huge nerd. In fact, I love reading fantasy novels and working in as many references as I can to Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Star Trek, and Star Wars in daily conversation.
There will be a day when I find someone who’s nerdier than I am. But today is not that day! *Hefts sword and yells* (See what I mean?)
Is the Stories That Sell Intensive right for you?
This intensive may be right for you if you
- Aren’t seeing the impact you know your business is capable of
- Have dreams of setting your audience’s hearts and minds alight…but aren’t doing that yet
- Aren’t seeing the audience engagement that you want
- Want to use your sales content to connect with your potential clients on a deeper level (and thereby book more clients)
- Are ready to discover your stories that sell (Be warned: some of them may be painful or embarrassing. Some of mine are.)
This may not be right for you if
- You aren’t worried about the impact your business has
- Don’t see the value in using your stories in your content
- Are unwilling to dig deep, open up, and become vulnerable
- Are unable to pay the one-time fee of $1,500
- Don’t want a highly-engaged, loyal audience
- You already have a high-engaged, loyal audience and you see no need to deepen your relationship with them
