“How to build the story of your product.”
Products sell because of stories. And a product story is far more than a list of features and benefits. If you get the story right, people repeat it. If you get the story right, people imagine a better version of themselves.
A product story is, by necessity, science fiction. It’s a story of a future world, that’s better than today. By definition, that product story has the buyer and end-user as the hero/ protagonist. The product is a magic bean that dispels the troubles and fears of our hero.
Product Storytelling is here to help you map out your narrative and tell it in a simple, memorable way. It uncovers how your product will impact your customers’ lives.
