STEP 1 - DEFINE YOUR STORY

In this first step of the series, we'll be focusing on the content. The key here is defining your story.
Everyone has a story to tell so, first of all, you need to find out what are the best stories that you or your business has to tell.
Read these essentials that will help you define your story:

  1. Think of how your product or service makes a difference, focus on the uniqueness of your business: Make a list of all the unique benefits your business has, do some research about your competitors and take note on how your company differentiates from the rest. Ask friends and previous or current clients why they have chosen your business over others, try a survey or a quiz to increase the number of answers.
  2. The primary goal is to engage emotionally with your customers, so when you are working on the content, do it with your audience in mind.
  3. Find out what are your client's interests, what things they enjoy and what problems they have to face; where they hang out (physical and online spaces), what products they buy and how they spend their free time.
  4. Think of stories you can tell in parts as series, then create a publishing schedule.
