I used to think my story wasn't important.

It's not about me. I don't need to feed my ego. It's about the customer.

Boy was I wrong.

What I discovered (and wish I found out earlier) is that by telling your story, it connects people to you.

It's not about saying how great you are, it's about showing your passion for your business and making people feel something.

Customers will get to know you, like you, trust you... and buy more from you.

Your story is your competitive advantage.

If you're going up against big, well known companies, why should people buy from you?

If your website looks like a boring, corporate template with no personality, why will customers care?

If people can't tell the difference between you and everyone else then they'll just beat you down on price.

And price is the LAST thing you want to compete on.

I want you to charge a premium for what you do. I want you to make more money because you're providing more value.

And until you tell your story, that value won't connect with people.

So telling your story isn't about you... it's about the customer.

Tomorrow I'm doing a live, free Q&A to discuss this with you and help you through it.

You can confirm your attendance and ask your questions here.

(I'd suggest getting your questions in today so you'll be at the top of the list - once the session starts it usually fills up quickly)

See you tomorrow!

:)

Cheers,

Join live at: https://blab.im/evan-carmichael-how-to-stand-out-by-standing-up-a-discussion-on-core-selling

Most businesses are boring. 

If I can't tell the difference between you and your competition then I'm just going to see who is cheapest.

Don't be that entrepreneur.

One of my favourite ways to stand out is through Core Selling.

Stop selling the features or benefits of your business and start selling the values.

That's what really brings customers in and keeps them loyal... because you stand for something important.

Now you go from competing to be the lowest priced provider to charging a premium

Now you're not just a supplier, but an important part of your customers' lives.

I want people to want to buy from you because of WHO you are and what you stand for.

On Thursday I'm doing a live Q&A to discuss this topic with Sage CEO Stephen Kelly and answer your questions. 

I'm super excited about it and if you're looking for how to stand out in the mind of your customers, this session is for you.

Ask your questions below and we'll answer them Live for you :)

Are you getting enough customers? Do you want more in 2016?

In the last Live Q&A of the year I'll be discussing how to convert more of your leads into customers and using data to make important conversion decisions to grow your business. 

My special guest will be Michael Resetar (AWeber Data Analyst) who is in charge of helping to optimize company conversion and retention rates.

Ask your questions below and we'll answer them Live for you :)

More on Michael:

"Michael Resetar is regularly referred to as AWeber’s data master, where he helps to translate intelligence into actionable business insights, for the worldwide email marketing software company.

With more than 10 years of experience in operations, project management, and sales experience across several industries, he dreams of working in a world where his co-workers only speak in mathematical formulas to him.

As the sole marketing data analyst for AWeber, he regularly audits and establishes protocols that can track, test and analyze customer, website and marketing channel performance and trends. Specifically, helping to optimize company conversion and retention rates.

When he’s not knee deep in statistics, you can find him serving-up pancake goodness, as the lead bass player in The Pancake Breakfast Band, doting on his new baby girl, Lydia and stunning wife, Krista."
