The Power of Storytelling helps your Purpose-driven Business

5 reasons why you should use the power of storytelling to help grow your business in 2018:

  1. Stories Build Trust We do business with those we trust, and sharing the story of your business builds that trust. We buy products and services based on trust, and we donate to charities based on trust that our donations will make a difference. When we share the story of the purpose behind our business, it shows that we are taking the steps to build that trust with our clients.
  2. Stories Stick in our Memory We may forget about a product or service or its features, but if it is tied to a story, chances are it will stick. We often remember things that are woven into a story.
  3. Stories Set You Apart In the business world, everyone is trying to differentiate themselves from their competition. The story of your business is unique, and the easiest way to set yourself apart is to share that story — and trust me, no two stories are the same.
  4. Stories Engage & Connect In today’s world it is crucial for purpose-driven entrepreneurs and businesses to connect with their clients at a deeper level. Stories help do just that. Increasingly clients and customers who do business with purpose-driven companies are looking for that deeper connection and engagement.
  5. Stories Inspire Don’t we all just love that? When we come across an entrepreneur or a business that inspires? Aren’t we looking for that, especially in a purpose-driven business? What inspiring story does your business have that will attract loyal clients? And are you sharing it in a powerful Photo Story?

What if…

I recently photographed a family in which the dad had been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. They wanted Family Portraits done before his chemotherapy, as they were not sure how much time he has. When I met him, if I had not known his condition or aware of how quickly it was progressing, I would not have even guessed that anything was ailing him.

These are the times when I am even more grateful for how I touch people’s lives. And whether we like it or not, we are faced with our own mortality. And the inevitable question – “What if? What if…this was their last Family Portrait Session?” Such times force us to pause and examine our limited time on this planet, and how we are choosing to spend it.

I absolutely loved working with them to create these beautiful memories – especially of the boys with their father – in a place that was special to them, where they often come to climb trees, goof off, play around (with grass swords), and spend time with each other.
